    Can you state your computer's specs, the soundcard you are using, and also your Audio Latency setting in Traktor (how many ms)?

    Also, you might want to snag the DPC Latency tool (JFGI) - if you get any red spikes you'll need to work out the driver causing it (mine was teh advanced power controls)

    Without sounding like a toss.....get rid of the Dell mate.

    Dell's are notorious for being bad when it comes to playing live off it.

    By the looks of your issue, the Dell might be powering all the USB ports from a single source (just a guess). Therefore with two power hungry connections (ARE you running an external soundcard, which one?) the ports are seeing power dips which you hear as pops.

    If this really is the problem, you might want to connect the X1 on a powered USB hub (get a good one, search the forum for lots of advice) and have only the soundcard connected directly to the Dell. That is what most mac users have to do ;-)
