    Default Urgent!!

    Hi guys, i really need a quick fix for this if anyone knows the problem.

    Ive found that Deck A on Traktor, running an S4 has started to 'creep' forward, even when stopped.

    Basically the thin red line denoting where the track is up to is slowly moving forward of its own accord, throwing the beats way out of time! This keeps happening even when i press play to stop the deck.

    Ive got a gig tomorrow and really need some help on this if anyone has had anything like this before!


    Any and all help appreciated!

    Have you tried calibrating jogwheels?

    If you're using time-coded vinyl, check the grounding on the turntables to make sure that's all set.

    Mostly to do with dust in your faders. my s4 wich is be used every weekend in open air on a beach, had the same problem with all faders and push buttons. My warranty is over so i decided to go all the way and put a bit of wd 40 in my faders, that did the trick even a bit of wd 40 in the push buttons that didn't function worked. Did this about 5 months ago and everything works perfect.

    But first you can try blowing in to the fader that worked for me first, but temporarily.

    At the end contact cleaner and dust cans didn't do the trick for me only wd 40, wich can be nasty stuff for electronics, so this advice has no warranty. But for me it worked.

    Contact cleaner and white lithium grease might be better than WD-40. I've had WD-40 build up and make the faders even more gunky after some time back out in the open.

    I would check if that's tempo or pitch band mapping issue firstly. Can't see how this might got something to do with dirty faders

    Ive had a fiddle and it seems to be something to do with the master tempo. It switchs to the metronome master tempo instead of the deck as the master if that makes sense?

    It seems the deck is trying to catch up with the metronome master thingy (Im not very good with traktor terminology)

    Please don't put WD-40 on your faders. Get yourself some CaiLube or similar lube made for electronics.
