Mixify
Mixify is a great platform for DJs large and small to broadcast their mixes – but how do you deal with crackling when using Traktor, wonders our course owner?

Digital DJ Masterclass owner Andrew says “I’ve recently been trying out mixify.com and have broadcast a couple of live sets on it so far. Problem is when I do this the audio crackles quite a lot.

“It’s not present on the actual recorded mix that Mixify provides after I’ve ended the session, but it’s quite distracting and irritating when I’m trying to DJ Live. It’s almost like there’s a huge latency (the “load” bar at the top middle of the screen seems to be frequently in the red). Never have this issue when not broadcasting so suspect it’s maybe something to do with the Traktor broadcast settings. Any suggestions as to what might be causing this and how to remedy it?”

Digital DJ Tips says:

We’ve been scratching our heads about this one, Andrew, and it’s interesting (and I guess good news) that your recordings don’t suffer from it. Apart from closing down everything on your computer you don’t need and upping your buffer size, I can’t really suggest much else. So I’m hoping we’ve got readers who have had the same issue and managed to solve it…

So, over to you. Have you found issues when broadcasting using Traktor? What did you do to make it run more smoothly? Any advice you have for Andrew would be gratefully received!
