I have had my MCX8000 for a couple of weeks and I have an issue which I cannot solve so I turn to you and reach for advice. I am using the MCX8000 together with VDJ 8.2. (several different builds tested) My issue is after about one minute playing a track, distortion / drop-outs starts to be heard and seconds later all sound is gone. MIDI is still working, VU meters act normal. MCX8000 is responsive. All seems ‘ok’ except for no sound out. I have done a deep analysis, trying to find the issue without doing so. MCX8000 has the latest firmware downloaded from Denon’s website.
Here’s what I have tried: Using Denon ASIO driver 1.0.5, buffer size does not matter Using ASIO4ALL. Exactly the same issue persists. Even with WASAPI with shared mode active, this issue will happen. Running WASAPI with excelusive mode seems to not have this issue, but latency will increase. 2 different PC’s tested with exactly same results. The issue is so easy to reproduce. If I change USB port or reinitialyze the ASIO driver, sound will resume again. MOST often, it will work for hours after doing this, but I have had the issue occouring again. The issue is not connected to a particular USB port, but changing it will normally help the issue. I don’t know what to check and start to believe there might be an hardware issue with my MCX.
