Hi everyone just wondering what pc performance everyone uses when they use Traktor pro 3, I had an issue at a venue the other night, I set up my s4 mk3 controller and when I plugged my charger into my laptop it was making a very loud buzzing sound constantly, it only stops when I take the charger out. I use high performance power and was wondering with using this could it be the issue to the buzzing noise as high performance uses more energy

    Sounds like the equipment / power was not grounded. Though I don't know too much about it.

    Did you use a 3 pin plug?

    Usually, if the power supply is issue, you should also be able to hear a slight bzzzz sounds coming out of the supply itself. Definitely try a different power supply if you can get the replacement.

    The s4 mk3 power supply or the power supply for the charger?

    I mean your S4 and Laptop charger, do they have 3 pin? And if you used an extension from the wall, it also needs to be grounded.

    Sounds interesting.

    Because I have noticed that there is some sound crackling when I'm connecting power supply into the windows laptop the one is playing Traktor from battery. But the crackling appears only for a moment. And I think it is somehow related to a switching power modes from battery only to/from power outlet. And maybe it's a Ryzen or hybrid gpu system releated. Maybe Intel, or single VGA system will not have this temporary sound glitch.

    If you're experiencing issues with your power supply, there's a helpful indicator to look out for. In addition to the problem you're facing, you may also hear a slight buzzing sound emanating from the supply itself. To troubleshoot this, it's recommended to try using a different power supply if you have access to a replacement. This will help determine if the power supply itself is the root cause of the issue.
