After a while the sound of played tracks turns very dirty and not identificable sometimes
When I use my Traktor Kontrol s4 MK3 with Traktor Pro software i Play some music files and after a time the sound destroys itself and is very dirty and not identificable. It is also not possible to navigate the song. It only happens sometimes, I then have to restart the Traktor software, What can I do? I looked in this forum, if someone has had the same issue, but I didn't find anything.
My Setup: Traktor Pro 188.8.131.527, Traktor Kontrol S4 mk3 newest Firmware, processor 12th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-1255U 1.70 GHz, 16gb Ram, Windows 11 Version 22h2
Are you using ASIO or WAS-API? You can find that in the audio settings.
For me it helped to switch toe ASIO with 512 buffer size.
Set power management in windows to maximum performance.0
Thanks, I will try that out, I am using asio driver. Regards Ralph0
Check your bitrate for Traktor driver and also in the main soundcard of windows.
Most computers since 2020 use 48khz, before 2020 44khz. The slowed down or sped up sounds or distorted sound seems to happen when different bitrates are selected.
Some drivers seem to be stable when fixing bitrate at startup. But some seem to need a reset during Traktor use. As said above for the S4mk3 the Asio driver seems to have less problems.
The asio driver is in your Traktor folder.

Thanks for your help. I went to the noticed Traktor driver folder and there were only two executables, one druiver for s2 and one for s4. I know where the bitrate is set in Traktor settings, but where is the bitrate set on the other place?
I looked it up, both traktor and soundcard settings were on 44,1 khz. Today it worked without flaws, i will test it more times the next days. Thank you for your help, regards Ralph1
The proposed settings changes seemed to fix it. I mixed serveral times and there were no flaws. Thank you for your help again. Regards Ralph1
