DJ SWIDPRO InfinityMember since 2009
hey, i work with cdj 2000nxs and every wedding i have 1-2 times of no sound for 2 seconds while im playing,
when i have the 2 seconds of no sound in the same time i can see that the *wave in VDJ jumps 4 beats*,
every time the same thing the wave of the playing song jumps 4 beats and there is no sound for 2 seconds.
i had before cdj 2000 not nxs with the same problem so i bought a new 2000nxs last year And still i have the same problem.
now i'm on the current VDJ 2018 version, it happend to me in every update, i tried a new usb cables and new usb hub And still the same problem (quality items)
i have macbook pro 2015 15" i7 16gb ram 500gb ssd osx 10.10.5

Did you check if it happens on different songs? Otherwise some files could be corrupted.

What is your sound setup? Are you using asio or wasapi?

So you are using just the 2 cdj's in your audio config as deck 1 and deck 2 audio?

Yes that's correct

There is a chance the audio interruptions you have coming from some brief USB disconnections. I suppose, not enough USB ports on your Mac to try your CDJs connected directly without any hub, right ?
Can you reproduce at home, or random ?

One other thing you could try in order to see if the USB bus is somehow overloaded, would be to delete some actions assigned to the keys that offer waveforms and other data on the CDJs screens. So, starting from the factory default mapping, delete the actions for the DATA_BROWSER, DATA_COVER, DATA_WAVEFORM keys (you wont get all the info on the screen, but at least we can exclude some options)

I can try to work with the cdj׳s connected directly to my mac it's 2 cdj's and 2 usb ports, I don't believe it's a usb bus overload i have a very powerful mac I think he can handle the data transfer but I will delete those actions in the mapper to see if there is any change.
Can you guess what makes the waveform jump 4 beats and make the sound go when this problem happens ?
