1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Massive X, Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

Clicks and Pops when scratching or cuing.

    I originally purchased traktor scratch duo. So I have the audio 4 with my setup. I then later on purchased the download upgrade to scratch pro.

    When I cue up a track and use my cdj jog wheel to go back and forth with the beat in preperation to cue my track and drop it on the beat a strange click and pop will come out of the speakers.

    I have tried various settings such as the eco/HiQ, scratch/normal and including latency settings and nothing seems to solve this issue.

    1. Could it be a defective audio 4?
    2. Could it be a software issue from owning duo and upgrading to pro?

    This happened on my old acer laptop and still continues to happen on my macbook.

    My macbook is a 2.4 intel core 2 duo with 4 gig ram.

    Not a common complaint with macs.

    How does the CPU meter in Traktor look - does it spike when you hear the click/pop?

    Make sure you've got airport turned off and also any energy-saving settings are deactivated.

    It happens with a pc or a mac..

    My cpu load is fine. 2.4 core 2 duo is way more than enough power.

    Yes airport is turned off and all energy saving setting are not in use.

    How is your buffer size set on the Audio Setup panel?

    The executable for Pro and Duo is the same; in Duo simply some features are disabled. So this cannot be the cause.

    I forgot a important thing..

    On the Left channel I will be moving the plate back and forth to cue. The channel volume is all the way down so no noise or sound comes out. Yet when I move the records or cdj back and forth the click and pop sound still comes out of the speaker.

    As said earlier try to raise your latency until the problem is gone.
    If that doesn't work there is something else going on.

    I'm having the same problem. Since upgrading to TSP 2 from TSP 1 I have the same clicks and pops...I have a 1.6ghz Macbook Air with 4gb Ram, running Audio 8 card. In TSP 1 I could run at 96khz, with sub-10ms latency and it was flawless. Even switching to 48khz now it is more glitchy.

    on windows "green" your dpc latency. then run traktor.exe with task manager "realtime" priority.
