Now plug in other USB devices one-by-one and see if you get Audio dropouts.
If so, the device may be taking up too much USB power, and the drivers might have to be updated for that device. When you are choosing your soundcard in whatever DJ program you are using, make sure it says “ASIO” next to it.
In Traktor, there is a latency bar in preferences – Audio Setup where you can raise or lower the buffer size.I would try it at 512 ms, then try at other multiples of 128 such as 256, 128.You might also try plugging in the device to another USB port on your computer because a different port might work better. If you don’t have the option for ASIO, you can download ASIO4ALL at ASIO4ALL.com, which works for most soundcards.If you’re plugging in bus-powered devices into a USB Hub, it might be hogging all of the power from the port, therefore causing problems and Audio dropouts. Once ASIO is installed, make sure you choose the ASIO driver, and NOT the direct sound or WASAPI driver when you are DJing.BIOS Stands for “Basic Input Output System” which is a mini operating system that runs on a chip on your mainboard.
It controls how the mainboard’s components interact with each other (on a hardware management level before windows gets into the mix).A “Chipset” refers to a group of important processor chips on your computer’s mainboard, which handles things like hard drive and USB operation.Your computer comes with a generic chipset, but this was made as a “one size fits all” solution for being compatible with as many models as possible.When your computer has reached the correct latency setting, your CPU meter will be lower and the Audio will not have any dropouts. Sometimes it is hard to figure out what is causing problems with your PC’s performance.Here are a couple free applications you can download that will help you figure out the cause of your problems.Depending on how powerful your computer is, you can have close to no latency like 2-5 milliseconds (which the human can’t even perceive) vs.
