this is how lots of old school house djs mix. they have one hand riding the pitch and the other controlling the faders/rotary knobs. just watch some vids of Louie Vega mixing. Especially useful when mixing un-quantized stuff like disco, which always slips in and out.

I'm starting to get ok at this technique. its definitely challenging to pull off a set without touching the platter or record during mixing
