Problem with looping

Hi there. Not sure if I am expecting too much here. However, if I set up a loop on a track in Rekordbox, it sounds great and seemless. If I then call that loop from within the CDJ850, it isn't that great. I have to adjust in or out...which isn't ideal if you are calling up a loop in the middle of a mix.

Is there anything I can do to change this? Does Dynamic analysis in Rekordbox make a difference (my tracks are all constant tempo).

Thanks,

Part of the issue is on Rekordbox you have 1ms accuracy.  On a CDJ850, you have 1 frame accuracy which is 13ms.  The only thing you could do would be to get a CDJ-900 or CDJ-2000.

You don't want to use DYNAMIC mode unless you are using live-drummer type tracks.

I could barely afford the 850s, so selling them for the 900 or 2000 isn't an option. Is it something that could be fixed with a hardware upgrade, or do I just have to live with it?
