CDJ 900 Asio Driver Fault

Hi,

So I got my CDJ900's rigged up to my laptop via USB for use as MIDI controllers in Traktor Pro.
All was working fine until I had a go in the week and for some unknown reason, my CDJs refuse to play properly through their own Asio Driver.

Playback stutters and is impossible to listen to. When I select Asio4All as an Audio Device,
that works fine, but no longer does the Pioneer CDJ Asio work.

I've tried to re-install the Pioneer Asio driver again but to no avail. Havn't a clue what's gone wrong.

Any suggestions?

Cheers.

@DJ S-TYPE > If you're using the NEWEST ASIO4ALL, there's a problem with it - downgrade one version and you should be okay.

Is there any chance this will be fixed in the future?

Or is there a chance the CDJ driver gets an update fof better compatibility with 64 bits win. 7 (with the new generation Intel I cores)

Thanks Pulse, but which driver to downgrade? The ASIO4ALL Driver or Pioneer's CDJ Driver?

Use the newest Pioneer driver (they work with all 64bit environments), and the 2.9 version of ASIO4ALL.

I have read this thread with big interest, because in the coming weekend, I will try to get my new CDJ-2000 to work with Traktor. But one thing I don't understand is, why shall I use both the Pionner CDJ driver and the Asio4all driver. I thought it was either the Pioneer CDJ driver or the Asio4all driver. Why do I have to use both drivers

I'm still having trouble.

I downgraded ASIO4ALL but the problem persists (still using latest Pioneer ASIO).
I downgraded Pioneer ASIO to a previous version but the problem still persists.

Re-installed latest Pioneer ASIO.

In the end, I have HAD to resort to using the latest ASIO4ALL for using my CDJs with Traktor Pro.

The only problem is I can't use Adobe Audition or any other third party recording software to record my mixes because
they also use the ASIO4ALL driver. I can record when I use only rekordbox and my CDJs, however.

I don't know how to record internally (or externally any other way) with Traktor Pro either.

@Jimmy > You need to use the Pioneer drivers otherwise the computer doesn't know how to communicate with the hardware. You need to use ASIO4ALL or you'll only be able to use ONE CDJ with Traktor because it can't communicate with multiple soundcards.

@S-TYPE > You should use the NEWEST Pioneer driver and the 2.9 version of ASIO4ALL. If you still have skips or drop-outs, you should adjust the latency times within A4A.

You record internally (Traktor) via the casette icon, top right of the interface.

OK, so I've installed the ASIO4ALL 2.9 Driver and also the latest Pioneer CDJ900 Driver.
I'm able to use the Pioneer ASIO in conjunction with Traktor Pro.
I can also use ASIO4ALL to record from my line-in using Adobe Audition.

Everything seems fine now.

I do find that when I'm multitasking, Traktor Pro can sometimes loose the sound or the music becomes distorted and crackly, such as when I flick between open windows to check websites or e-mail, etc.

I'm only finding this issue when I use the Pioneer ASIO (ASIO4ALL 2.9 works perfectly). I've messed around with the buffer and latency settings but the default setting works best, although still with the issue.

Is this a Traktor problem or something else?

If you only get the problem when you're multitasking, don't you think the solution would be to stop checking your email when you're DJing?

You said i have to use both the CDJ 2000 driver and the Asio4all driver.
According to this video from Pioneer: http://www.djsounds.com/12/16/...-part-6-nerve-centre

it should be possible to control up to 4 decks without using Asio4all?

@Jimmy > Correct, HOWEVER, Traktor does not recognize more than one soundcard. If you're using a device such as the Audio8 as your audio output from the software, you have no problems and don't require A4A. If you want to use the CDJs as soundcards, then you need A4A in order to aggregate them into one device as recognized by Traktor.

I think I understand now. I have the Audio 8 soundcard, but I think I will stick with the soundcards in the CDJ 2000's.
Earlier in this thread you mentioned that there were problems with Asio4all ver. 2.10, so it's better to use ver. 2.9. But as I understand, ver. 2.10 doesn't support Win 7 64 bit which is my OS. So which Asio4all driver do you think I need for my CDJ-2000's to get it work with Traktor.

@Jimmy > Well, you're between a rock and a hard place. The reason we've suggested 2.9 is the skipping audio issue, but if you can't use 2.9 on W7-64, you need 2.10.

You should thus use your Audio8. Razzer

Then I think I will start with my Audio 8 soundcard and see how it works.
When I then use Traktor with the Audio 8 soundcard, and not the soundcards in CDJ 2000, am I then understanding it correct, that I don't have to use the usb on the rear side of the CDJ 2000. It's only if I will use recordbox and the soundcards of CDJ 2000, I will have to use the usb on the rear side of CDJ 2000
