I wrote an app similar to this 22+ years ago as a solution looking for a problem.

We ended up using it at a Formula 1 announcement/press conference.
The mixer was a simple x-y grid with loops of racing on the x-axis and loops of crowd noise on the y-axis. No sound lower left, full volume upper right. Click and drag the cursor around to adjust the volumes. Touch screens weren't common place back then.

There was also a bank of about six one-off sound effects, engines revving, tires squealing or cars passing, that could also be triggered as needed.

That was a long time ago, I probably put in some preset mix options to program during the sound check and a panic mute button and key commands.
