RE Traktor 3 + BCD3000

This is a re-post- I did not fix the prob before...

The problem is - major audio drop outs during playback with the above hardware/software combination. After extensive research, it pretty much comes down to an issue with my notebook hardware.

It use to work fine intermitantly. 1 day I could play 5 hours straight no worries.The next it would freeze during playback with CPU @ 100%!! Then I got the pauses/ dropouts whilst playing 1 song. Now I have completely reinstalled my whole system, updated all drivers for everything (system,software and external midi device drivers) and it seems worse off!!! Just drops out for a second every few seconds. I was watching my CPU and it would spike during dropouts. Ive literally tried everything!!! I am a trainee computer techie and have access to great knowledge and resources but still haven't found a solution. I'm assuming its related to Beringer's drivers being not so universal? Also media player cant play full songs anymore? man this sux! Almost ready to convert to vinyl DJing!!!

My set up is as follows.

Asus A2500D Notebook (A2D)
Mobile AMD Athlon XP-M 2.16 Ghz CPU
1 Gig RAM
80 Gig Hdd
SiS PCI to USB Controller?? if that helps...
DMA controller appears to have no drivers installed in Device manager??

If you guys can work this out, I will take my hat off to ya's. I have spent more than 6 months working this out!!

Good luck and thank you guys in advance. I spend a lot of time in my job giving free advice so it would be lovely for karma to come my way for a change haha Any help will be passed on to fellow sufferers!

Thank you kindly!

    Turns out I was correct about the SiS PCI to USB chipset. They do **** for USB audio device applications. I bypassed the SiS chipset by plugging in a Gigatech PCMCIA card w/ USB ports into my laptop. Now it runs like a dream! I spent 6 months of diagnosis and research to figure this one out so I hope this helps others with similar issues!

    Thanks again guys!

    Yeah like I said, the issue was the SiS chipset. I pulled the whole CPU out, cleaned the fan, checked its bearings, reapplied the heat sink paste and still had the issue. Through in the PCMCIA card and it works like a dream now.

    Turns out the SiS chipset cant handle the amount of DATA that was pumping in and out of it. Thank god for USB - PCMCIA cards! Gutted it took so long to figure it out though! Even the guys at work that have been techs for 15+ years couldn't work this one out....

    Cheers for your time.

    The PCMCIA card fixed the problem for a while. Suddenly the other day, my the CPU meter in Traktor 3 started flickering between 0 - 1/2 way and the playback was lagging terribly! As soon as the BCD3000 is disconnected, my system runs like a dream. Although my system is only 2.4Ghz Athlon w/ 1 gig ram, it runs better than most of the new systems i build at work.

    Its tough to say but I'm getting the idea that the BCD is stuffing the USB - BUS in my system. It also worries me that the BCD power supply does not have earth pin for the wall plug.... makes you wonder...

    any thoughts anyone?

As the processor usage goes up to 100% I personally would check the fan on the processor. Does it seem to be running, does it speed up when the CPU goes to 100%.
I had this with graphics cards similar fault caused by the lubricant /grease on the fan spindle drying out and causing the fan to stick or stop, and then the graphics GPU getting too hot. Also check the heatsink / vents where the air from the fan blows out.
Just a thought.

I have a toshiba 500 satellite - 1HK laptop. i am a dj and continuously during using traktor audio 10 the laptop stops for 1 - 2 seconds about twice per hour of use. i do not know what to do ...plse help...

First be sure that both Traktor and the Audio 10 are up to date using the Service Center that should have installed with Traktor. Also, make sure your audio driver and BIOS are up to date. If the problem persists, it is possible something is tasking your system (such as a virus scan or system update) and is forcing audio to cut out.

Well that Dell maybe 10 years old and time for a new one.

Phones 1-2 has both channels coming out of it

Had the same problem and fixed it today. It is the mute button. Whem you change from 1-2 to 3-4 if the mute button for 1-2 does not activate you will get the sound from 1-2 thru 3-4. Just change the setting and you are away. worked for me.

Auidio drops

while your monitoring the sound when recording it cuts out or while you playback the tape it dropps out? if it's noticed during playback it's one 3 things. the heads are dirty, the tape tension is low or the heads are bad. send it to video tech service in sacramento. that guy is super cool.
