Audio drop outs on up fader

Hello everyone I’ve been using my MC6000mk2 for 6 months without any problems but in the last 2 gigs I’ve done I’ve had sudden audio drop out on channel 1 . When the up fader is pressed lightly the audio will come back in. All the other faders are working fine. Am I looking at a hardware or a software problem here? I’m using Serato DJ 1.7.1 on a macbook pro 2.4ghz, 4gb ram OSX 10.8.2

Thanks in advance.


To test this, try plugging in an audio device, such as CD player, or even the audio outputs from a DVD player into the channel 1 inputs and try the fader whilst listening to the sound.

If the problem persists then the fault could be more hardware related e.g.: fader tracking etc.

If the problem isn’t apparent on a real audio source, then it could be a midi mapping/software (not firmware) issue.

Hey Gee,

Thanks for that advice. I’ll give it go later.
