    Default Traktor Hiccup

    Every now and then when loading a new song onto a deck via my keyboard I get a short drop out. This problem doesn't occur when using midi so it confuses me a little. Has anyone experienced this or know a way to solve it?

    might be that the load on your computer is a little too much for that split second

    I've done almost everything to optimize my cpu and it really only happens when loading tracks every once in a while (regardless of the track).

    I get the occasional dropout but always with the same songs so I contribute that to the songs, not the software.

    Do you use a separate partition on your HDD? What win?

    Download this "DPC Latency Checker" http://www.thesycon.de/deu/latency_check.shtml

    Run this in the background or minimise your windows so you can see it along with Traktor and when you drag/drop a song, watch the meters. If it goes above about 400ms or sharply in to the red, then your issue is overloading your PC/laptop. I found mine used to do this on an old one.

    What steps have you taken to optimising your laptop?

    I found it would do it more, if I was dropping a track on from the other drive in my laptop.
    Have you analysed all your tracks, prior to when youre DJing?

    Back to optimising, I have since bought a new laptop (did the same on my old one as well), but I do:

    Dual boot, one dedicated for Traktor/Ableton.
    Gone through just about every optimisation for audio help guides I can find.
    Run a script - Specifically this one. You can edit it before you make it a .bat file, so if you need wifi or bluetooth, you can remove these
    http://www.djtechtools.com/2011/08/1...-power-script/

    My latency sits around 70ms when in IDLE and when I run the script drops to about 30/40ms, even with 4 tracks playing and triple FX on each channel.

    You didnt state whether you ran a MAC/PC and what the specs were. CPU/RAM/HDD/OS, etc?

    make sure ur NIC card is disabling if your DJing. thats like 90% of all drop outs

    Sounds like latency to me. Are the tracks you describe analysed prior to loading? This will decrease load.
