So last Saturday I had a gig. Everthing was working fine (2 Sc5000 and the x1800 mixer, all linked and both players had an 32gbt usb drive in them) but after playing for 1 hour the sound got very distorted or streched. Also the LED ring on the playing deck was blinking like crazy. As if some one was tapping the platter very fast. Searching for an other track while the other deck while playing from the same usb drive was also triggering this distorted sound. So i thought maybe there is a problem with the usb or the link. I changed the usb and tried other ethernet ports on x1800 but the problem still appeart. After rebooting both players this problem went away, for an other hour or so. Than the same thing happend… for some reason turning down the gain on the mixer helped. Maybe vibrations from the PA ? This happend like 3 or 4 times that night and i don´t know why. Also one player had the message Hardware issue detected displaying after rebooting it. One day later at home the message would not appear after turning it on an the Sound issues are also gone.
Maybe some one can help, I don´t want this to happen next time.
