    Default daaaah! Traktor scratch (almost) fail

    I spun at an open decks night tonight and traktor scratch almost ruined my set!

    I was using CDJ's instead of Turntables, which I much prefer and use at home, I set up the interface and cables as normal and Popped the cd's in the cdj's and went to play, no cue button, jog wheels were behaving oddly and the play button wasn't working...

    Eventually I got the cdj's to control traktor and battled my way through the set with no cue button! nevertheless I still smashed it and have now been offered a weekly set on a radio station, good times.

    Could anyone tell me what the problem with traktor was? the audio in LED's were red, yet it still managed to pick up what I was doing on the CDJ's...

    Oh, last point the only other laptop dj that night (using serato) also had major problems... The power cut out on him 4 times during his half hour set. Good job everyone was drunk by then

    Don't blame your tools mate. My bet is on you still having phono/vinyl selected as your input type.

    I just googled it, turns out your right, I had the input mode on timcode vinyl, not cd. My bad. Atleast I shall know for next time though!
