Sc5000 freezing /stutter


Hey guys, I was using my sc5000’s with x1800 last night for NYE and my left deck (which my external HD is patched into) waveform would stutter and freeze and had to drop the song to the right deck periodically as the night went on. Needless not happy at all with performance. Any help with this matter is much appreciated. Thanks

  • Were you analysing tracks on the second layer?
  • How large was your external HD?
  • What number of tracks do you have stored on the external?
  • Roughly how many of these are analysed?
  • What firmware are the players on?
  • Was the sound altered / quality dropped or just the visual screen display?

I’d imagine you’d need to provide the above information


Everything is updated to to newest versions, and I have 4tb external hard drive but only 2tb on it, and used with serato Dj


Tracks would play intermittent and waver, it sounded more like when dust gets on your needles and get that warble sound
