    Default wierd stutter caused by time stretching?

    so i was working on a demo the other day and i had to bring a track down from 132 to 129 bpm and noticed that there was a good bit of stuttering. now, earlier in the set i had brought a 125 up to 128 and noticed the same thing, but there was little to no stuttering at any other point in the set.
    have you ever heard or noticed that adjusting the tempo that much would cause stuttering?

    The stuttering most probably is caused by too much CPU load. Try if you can cut back on that.
    Rendering "difficult" MIDI tracks, or tracks with loadsa VST plugins to wav and than playback usually does the trick if it is caused by CPU load.

    [software rant]
    I heared it sometimes being created in Logic.
    When I moved to Ableton, this became non existent.

    I agree this is most likely caused by cpu load, tell us what your cpu load is when its stuttering - you may need to upgrade.

    If you running a mac laptop, check your power settings...make sure your power adaptor is plugged and 'better performance' is checked in the battery menu, switch off airport and bluetooth and quit all other unnecessary apps and start traktor a fresh or reboot fully.

    It's also worth rebooting from your mac os install dvd and 'fixing permissions' using disk utility from time to time.
