A workaround is to use JACK with something like this in your .asoundrc,
changing the values of hw:0,0 and hw:1,0 as appropriate.
Start JACK with
jackd -d alsa -d combined
Then you'll have four channels available to mixxx.
For reasons that aren't at all clear to me, this kind of setup
can be prone to xruns, but you may get away with it. Definitely
best not to use qjackctl which continuously reports xrun callbacks
(but not actual xruns) and munches CPU when running a combined setup.
