    Hey there - could you send screenshots of the following in your Traktor Preferences?

    • Audio Setup
    • Output Routing
    • Input Routing

    Also, does the issue persist when your devices aren't connected? When they are connected? Is there any instance where it doesn't happen?

    Hey @Captain_Hook - sorry for the delay, somehow I've missed this. Your preferences look good - could you try increasing the buffer size to 512 and see if it makes a difference though?

    You'll also want to optimize your computer for real-time audio processing, which can sometimes affect the visual display in Traktor - go through the steps in the link below to make sure you're all set and see if it helps with the lag.

    if after this, the issue persists, I'd highly recommend going through this link then:

    The link above might help narrow down what might be causing the issue. Hope this helps!

    Agreed with changing latency setting to 512 as stated above. Typically I have also set the Buffer to 3ms.

    The other thing to try is in Windows settings, you can usually specify what graphis card Traktor or any application uses. I am on Windows 11. But the option is still in 10. Here is a screenshot of how it looks in 11.

    Mine works in with the Nvidia just fine. But possibly the Power saving AMD might also be the better option. Test both cards to see if there is a change. I seem to remember issues with waveforms and graphics cards years ago. So it's worth a shot.

    Oh! Also I have seen waveform stutter when recording into Audacity on the same PC and streaming OBS. I strongly suggest using another laptop or other ways of streaming.

    With my setup and my neighbors setup, we use separate laptops and recording devices for any streaming/recording.

    Using WiFi and all of the streaming off Beatport plus recording and OBS always causes some latency or graphics issues. No matter how expensive the laptop has been.
