I had been using the right deck connected to Ethernet 2, but was trying it in 3 as per an earlier suggestion. I thought using 1 & 2 made sense, but I’m guessing the suggestion was based on the fact that if you actually connected 4 devices, you’d likely have 1 & 2 on the left side of your mixer and 3 & 4 on the right from the front.
I have just made a significant discovery this morning. It appears that the only time I get errors are when I’m using saved hot loops. Almost every problem I’ve been able to recreate with a certain degree of consistency, I am unable to replicate if I avoid using saved loops. (Notice in my videos, I am always using a saved loop)
The saved loops were all created in Engine, and they were all done with the same quantize settings enabled. (So I don’t have a manually created saved loop with slightly different durations, they should be, and appear to be identical to using the auto loop knob)
However, if I use the loop button/rotary knob to set a loop - the beat drifting, master deck swapping, and sync button flashing - it all goes away. This is when I’m putting the on the fly loop at the exact same in point, and duration of the saved loop.
At my event Saturday, I will avoid using saved loops and I’ll have about 3 hours worth of DJing to test this thoroughly. If all issues are related to the use of saved loops, am I the only one having these problems?
