problem with tempo

Hi people,

I have problem with tempo, after beat matching(no sync button) go one track faster or slowly. I use CDJ2000 Nexus2, DJM 900Nexus2

With Kontrol D2 is no problem after beat matching is the tempo at same speed.

Thank you

    Well if you want to do looong blend then yes, the tempo has to be exact. Else it will slowly drift apart. But 0.04 BPM difference will probably take .. a minute or so until you hear the difference? But it should be the same with the D2 or any other DJ device.

    Or you just adjust with the jog once in a while, which is what most DJs use. Or use sync.

    What did you expect?

    You can also set sync to BPM sync only. Not that it matter much if you don't match by ear but by reading from the display.

    Do you have any tips how can i make better sound or system set-up with djm,pair of cdj and pair of D2 (some website, video...)

    No, not really.

    I got a xone mixer :P

    Artists and titles of the two tracks being mixed? Did you mix same two tracks on the D2?

    Are you saying one of the tracks is changing BPM on it's own? Do you see the small midi symbol light up even when you don't touch the controllers? Maybe it's sending some bogus signals.

    That could be tested even without Traktor connected to the CDJ. Same would happen if the fader is issue.

    Hi guys,

    Thank for answers, bpm does not change

    D2 is going great with 2 same tracks or 4 different tracks . Problem is only with cdj

    Try closing Traktor and playing of the USB stick and see if the fader is still issue. That would be the first troubleshooting step that I'd try out.

    And does it happen suddenly or over time?

    Hi guys,

    I think is not Wlan or firewall question.

    I tried it again and if is one track on 128,11bpm and other one on 128,15 then beat matching goes wrong.

    On CDj i see only 128,1 and 128,1.

    Thank you

    You mean over a long time the difference will increase? Yes, that happens when they are at different speed.

    Same should happen on CDJs, you just don't see the last digit.

    Exactly, I dont see the last Digit. Also i have to look always on the PC display and set tempo exactly?

    Hi lord-carlos,

    sync button is not my favourite button :) so i will stay good friend with jogwheel

    D2Β΄s working perfect, with those maschine can i set the tempo exactly, e.g. 125,12.

    Do you have any tips how can i make better sound or system set-up with djm,pair of cdj and pair of D2 (some website, video...)

    lord-carlos many thanks for help
