    my setup is 2011 macbook pro 2.4g GHz

    audio 10

    traktor scratch pro 2

    i had a big serious problem during a gig last night for some apparent reason when i was in the middle of the mix the audio from the tracks that i was playing would sound so distorted i could barley hear the song over the distortion i could hear the track for about 2 min clearly after fully resetting everything but then the distortion would come back in u can hear the distortion on the main speakers and in the mixer when your cueing i had a fellow dj use my audio 10 the same night and he had no problems at all now i had the volume on my mac half way but i dont think that should affect my audio quality i need this problem fixed soon because i have a gig coming up this week and i cant play like this do i have to change any settings to play on a bigger club type of a system because im clueless on what can cause this

    please have a look at the tuning tips NI is providing in the knowledge base - might just be sth simple as turning off wlan.

    I suggest you try to recreate the problem at home and if you can then post your setting here.. cos anything else would be a guess on our part..

    the tuning tips isa good place to start
    you could have cpu overload, buffer overrun/underrun in the driver, or simply have used too many fx and it be finger trouble (i get the latter a lot)

    could you have accidentally been routing the line signal into a Phono input?

    'cause that would result in exactly your problem.

    Can you specify what you are using and how you have it all connected. Exact version of TSP2 as well.

    my version of tsp2 is 2.1.1

    i had 2 rca cables coming out the output of channel A and B on my audio 10 going to my behringer djx700 and i connected those rca cables to my cd input on ch 2 and line input on ch 3 of the mixer and i have a rca cable going from the booth output of the mixer to channel D of my audio 10 to record my mixes.

    you are not by any chance inadvertently monitoring your mix input?/ ie routing channel D back out to the mix?..

    or adding errant FX from the mixer?..
