hey guys i need help with some issues with my ddj sx.
when i play a song, the sound gets really grudgy and cracky for some reason. i have my sound output on Booth and it just sounds horrible. sometimes the sound is okay but then it does back to its crappy sound. i fixed my buffer size, i bought new wires and my Pa speakers are brand new. can anyone help me? or is there something wrong with my ddj sx

Hi chris808,

It would be good to eliminate the speakers from the problem. It sounds like you have done that.
You may want to try a firmware update. pioneerdj.com

Are you getting the same problem out the master output?

I am having the same problem. The sound coming out of the booth monitor sounds cracky and just awful. Why?

Having a problem. Just purchased a DDJSR and JBL Eon 615 powered speakers. I keep losing signal going into the speakers and it fades and cracks. I'm wondering if it's the sound card, my laptop (HP Envy Beats), or the controller. All the latest firmware and drivers have been updated on the controller.
