    Any i5 will be good enough for the S4+Traktor. That doesn't guarantee that the laptop will perform smoothly though.

    "Then I bought a mac and it worked" Oh you mean that mac that you hadnt spent months destroying with malware, porn, and trojans and a completely borked registry? Interesting logic on why that mac was just going to work.

    To the OP, you said youve tried everything.. even got a little snippy suggesting so. So we are to just take your word for it, know what yovue tried and suggest you buy a new soundcard?


    Not sure why buying a mac is being suggested... a overpriced waste of money and hell see the post on the first page here.. Some dudes brand new m ac wont even recognize the x1 and audio6 he just bought.. Hows that for out of the box for you?


    As Slvr said above.. you havent really said what youve tried... since "youve tried it all". What tweaks did you make? What buffer setting combinations did you use/tried etc

    I have 3 friends who own an S4 with their windows machine and it works fine. With a bottom spec CPU you are going to have to run some very high latency settings

    If you have tried a fresh install, and it still doesnt work with high latency settings I would suspect something is wrong with your laptop.

    Balakoth it's already been established that the problem lies with the cpu so your reply is a bit out-dated. Even my previous post confirms that a new laptop incl. more modern cpu is in order...

    Well if you wanna know what the real problem was it was the USB connection on my shitty windows laptop. The way Windows distributes power as well as crappy build quality on the physical ports ... and if you read my later post i suggested a budget way of putting together an affordable mac that will perform perfectly with Traktor and the S4 or any NI product.... Whatevers though what do i and almost all successful DJ's know i'm not here to debate do as you like.
