Bug: deck suddenly not being able to play
I am using Traktor 3.5.3 with a Kontrol S4 MK3, running on Windows 11 (last update).
Yesterday night, I had a wedding gig. I played a few songs. Everything went well. But suddenly, I tried to play a song on the deck B, and nothing happened. It was as if the play/cue buttons don't do anything (both on the controller and in the software). The song could not be played at all. It was stuck. And the problem remained with every track I put in the deck B. I was forced to use the deck D which prevented me to use the plugged microphone for the rest of the night.
It was a very frustrating experience. And it's not the first time this bug appears.
Have you ever encountered this type of problem? If so, how can I solve it without restarting Traktor, please?
Maybe there is a kind of "lock deck" function I enabled unintentionally?
Thanks for helping,
I have not encountered it but here is something you could try if it happens again. Cycle through the deck types, or, if using the S4, activate SHIFT+EXT to enable line-in for the deck, then switch back.
TT-mode could also be a culprit. If you use it and it starts to make trouble, switch to jog-mode (and vice versa). The most recent version of Controller Editor introduced problems with TT-mode, so you may want to roll back to version 22.214.171.124
Thanks for the tips, Sûlherokhh. This is exactly what I tried, but changing deck types and switching to external signal did not change anything. I have not tried to switch to jog/TT mode though. I will think about it the next it will happen.
I am already running Controller Editor 2.6.21
Not at all.0
The exact same thing has happened to me a few random times with traktor 3.4.2 & S4mk3 on windows 10.0
Thanks for your feedback, Dj pako. Maybe is it time to do something, @Kaiwan_NI ?0
I wonder if this might be related to a known issue... Our support team will need to verify. Can you please get in touch with us directly here https://bit.ly/n1trakt?0
