Are you playing tracks from USB 1 or USB 2? I am curious about this one...
XDJ-RX Skipping while recording to USB2
Having a problem with recording to a stick in USB2, at the start of the mix it's skipping back in the track and not recording properly, the track is playing perfectly through the speakers at the time though :(
Any suggestions ?
Playing tracks from PC hard drive via Rekordbox and recording to USB stick in USB2
Yes. I am having this problem too. Only started a couple of weeks ago.
Got my MBP hooked up using LINK, however when I record hour long mixes the first 5 minutes of the recording is suffering from the audio skipping.
Thought it was the USB Drives and taking them out without 'stopping' them first, but it's not. I've tried giving them plenty of time to stop recording and eject.
Pretty frustrating as that's an hour's work down the toilet, and it seems to be doing it a lot!
Same with me, tried it with a number of different USB sticks, formatted a couple as well and always the same result, first five minutes suffers from audio skipping, very frustrating!
On a slight side note, anyone else been having problems with Rekordbox in the last few weeks? The folder structure wasn't even displaying properly until the last update. Not what you'd expect for Pioneer.
i have problem too since friday morning seems like play 1 usb start mixing 1 track and track from other usb skip skip a lot and badly no suuport even call pionner in Uk but offices close quiet piss off have a gig comin next sat and all down dead
I recognized the exact same thing happening for the first time a few days ago.
The first thing I tried was reinstalling the latest firmware which seems to be the only way to "Hard Reset" the device since I'm pretty sure the Thumb Drives aren't the root cause.
Have any of You found a solution to this issue?
Not sure this is a "fix" but it eliminates any chance of things going wrong and I haven't had any problems since.
1. Once finish recording press the record button to stop (as per usual)
2. Give it a minute or so to finish writing any data to the stick, especially for those long mixes.
3. Push and hold the eject button until the light stops flashing red.
4. Then an extra 30 seconds left in there before pulling it out (this is probably superstitious).
Would be interested to know if this fixes your problems for you?
Thanks guys :)
You mean eject the USB stick properly? LOL
Yes, chances are it's a low-quality USB drive that is the issue; unable to write data in a consistent stream. Try a better brand / model of USB drive.
What do you consider a low quality USB drive?
I use SanDisk 256 GB Ultra 3.0 Drives for all my devices and the only one that has this issue is the XDJ-RX. My CDJ-900 NXS is completely fine with the exact same devices.
@Michael > And you're not recording to the drive when used with the CDJ.
Many USB drives have perfectly acceptable read speeds, but it's their write speeds which suck, and this is where they fail while recording - they simply can't maintain the write stream.
SanDisk has a wide variety of USB drives, most are mediocre, even if they have the word "Ultra" in the name. The only one of theirs I would recommend is their Extreme Pro model, which has been tested to have amazing read AND write speeds.
@Pulse > What other Flash Drives would you recommend?
I only recommend two drives:
- SanDisk Extreme Pro USB3.1
- Corsair Voyager GTX USB3.0
I have used these drives extensively over the last year with every model we make and have never had any issues, plus they export EXTREMELY fast.
