1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that 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,

    Hello.

    I am interested in buying traktor scratch in order to perform my dj sets. However my set-up at home is old and i am worried if it will be possible to work with traktor home. I have 2 cdj-100s + one numark mixer DM 3001X. Are cdj-100s compatible with traktor?

    Thanx in advance for your help.

    Yes. My buddy has them and we spin TS off his decks when we do weddings together. Not a fan of them, but yes they do work.

    they do work, but 90% of the times, when you press play, the track begins to play, the pitch/tempo drops A LOT for almost a second, and then plays normally. certainly not suitable for people who dont do long beat mixes and press play with the fader already up :)

    I use CDJ 100's every weekend with Traktor scratch with no issue whatsoever.

    Enjoy!

    I used them alot the last year or so at a venue I play at reguarly and I have the same problem as kourampies have. They skip a few beats into the track. Could it be different firmwares or something? I couldn't find an update for the players while searching for it. Would gladly get rid of that problem. (Or the players all together to be honest.)

    never used them with 1.3/3.4 but i think this is a cdj problem. when i was playing with cds, i remember getting this with tracks that had exactly the same sound for many frames, for exaple poorly made intros and outros by ultimix, that had complete silence between the beats.
    anyway if someone plays somewhere with cdj100s and is completely sure that works perfectly, please look at the manufacture date on the back and post it here :)

    Problem with beat in TS!

    Hi guys!
    I have a problem with Traktor Scratch when I use the CD`s with CDJ 100 players. Everything seems to be normal with the Time Codes but when I play the track no matter on which DECK it always skips (goes faster or slower) in the beginning of the 3 – 4 beat. I hope you will get my point. Are there any additional settings which I have to tune up? By the way with CDJ 800 I don not have any problems neither with VINYL MODE nor with Play & Cue, it works just fine!
    Thank you in advance!

    Have you got master tempo on? Make sure it's off; Traktor doesn't play nice with adjusted-pitch timecode signal.

    Hey guys, just wanted to let you know I merged the topics together since they are related to the same hardware.

    I'm going to forward it to the support techs to see what they say.

    In the meantime, please file support tickets and better yet post some audio examples if you can.

    Um...yeah. You're not supposed to use your CDJ's master tempo function. Just turn on keylock in the software.

    hi dudes

    i'm completely new in this digital world :D

    I've another problem guys

    when i play track3(scroll zone) from original control cds into my cdj100 players...jogwheels doesn't handle TSP playlist as should..doesn't work!

    are you experiencing the same?


    my multicore cable setup:
    Player TT/CD >>> pioneer cdj100
    Mixer TT/CD >>> LINE in channel on mixer
    Mixer Line In >>> PHONO channel on mixer switched to LINE

    Playing on Phono mode on mixer channels(switched to line as said..)
    Switched to CONTROL CD/LINE on audio8...

    maybe i did something wrong?

    you seem to have everything set up right. i ve never used playlist track, but i suppose this problem is related to the shitty way the cdj100s seeks, and keep in mind that the whole seek track and traktor scratch are originaly designed for vinyl, not for cdjs that skip and stutter while searching for cues etc.

    I have the same problem with my two CDJ-100. I just asked Pioneer via E-Mail and will post if I get a satisfying answer.
