This article provides help if you experience playback issues like skipping, crackles or drop-outs while analyzing your tracks in TRAKTOR.
Understanding the TRAKTOR Analysis
The Analyze function in TRAKTOR is a very complex process involving beat recognition, key detection, spectral analysis for the waveforms and loudness measurements. This means a lot of processing power is required in order to accomplish these tasks. When performing with TRAKTOR, the processing power requirements add up quickly, especially when using multiple Decks and / or effects. Therefore, we recommend to not analyze your tracks while playing live. This will dramatically reduce the processor load and increase the reliability of your system. This is especially true when analyzing a huge number of tracks.
Completing the Analysis of your Tracks
By completing the below steps, you can ensure that all your tracks are properly analyzed:
- In order to make sure all your tracks are correctly analyzed, right-click Track Collection in the Browser tree and choose Check Consistency.
- Important Note: Depending on the size of your Track Collection, the time required for the Consistency Check can vary from less than a minute to an hour or more. Take your time for doing this prior to a gig or session.
- The Consistency Check Report will appear. If tracks non-analyzed tracks are detected, click Analyze in order to start the Analysis process.
- You can monitor the Analysis process in the Status Bar at the bottom of the main TRAKTOR screen. The progress will be shown in realtime.
Note: If you cannot see the Status Bar, make sure Show Status Bar/Error Messages is activated in the Browser Details tab of the TRAKTOR Preferences.
- When the Analysis is finished, you can savely start playing with TRAKTOR. Don't forget to repeat this process after importing new tracks to your Collection.
