The purpose of this thread is to help DJs combat audio distortion, screen freezes & overall latency issues on the MCx8000. I’ve found an excellent article on ‘Troubleshooting USB Audio Artifacts/Latency’ by Numark. The link is below:
There is also some VERY USEFUL info on computer optimization on Serato’s website. That link is also listed below:
In addition to the tips in the articles above, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND running an external laptop fan to keep your laptop nice and cool. My experience is that it’s best to NOT power the fan via a USB port on your computer (or the MCx8000 rear USB port). Instead power the fan using a USB adapter plugged into either a separate power strip or a professional power conditioner.
Applying these simple tips will help reduce headaches, stress & anxiety at gigs!!
