CDJ 2000 (and above) pitch problem in HID & Advanced HID mode (TRAKTOR)

Hey there,

I'm new on this forum, so I really don't know if there's a similar thread.

I'm from Uruguay. I had a gig last week here and being wanting to try a new setup for a long time but I didn't had the opportunity yet (there's no much people that can afford an Allen & Heath Xone 92 & two CDJ's in their homes here in Montevideo).

The thing is I'm a CDJ DJ, always been and always prefered it rather than Traktor, but I do love some Traktor Fx's, the Xone 92 (not to mention that as we're all aware, the Xone 92 doesn't have any Fx on it) and the way I can organize my library, so I want to combine those items in a much more natural way, and try almost not to watch my laptop screen.

The thing is that when i'm in Advanced HID mode and y try to beatmatch, tracks in A & B deck don't ever have the same pitch by a matter of 0,02 bpms and I don't exact know why! I know I can always use my ears and that pitch difference shouldn't affect me much, and hey, I ended up doing it by the rest of my set, but believe me when I say that I had to keep continuously correcting the tracks by pitchbending one and another the whole time, much even more than with a usb unit.

I think the issue may have something to do about that I use the CDJ's in a 10% pitch scale, and my traktor configuration (I don't know why, just checked it and corrected it) was in an 8% pitch scale and guess what? CDJ's doesn't have 8% pitch scale. But if that ain't the issue, then I don't know what to do, and I will have to wait untill I can try again (who knows when...).

If anyone can help me it would be much appreciated.

Thanks!
