While controlling TRAKTOR with a TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 / S5 / D2 controller on a Mac system, the waveforms on the built-in display of the controller freeze / lag while the audio playback and hardware control of the software remain functioning normally.
The display freezes when any of the following actions are triggered in OS X:
- The OS X screensaver becomes active.
- The user shifts screens using the OS X Spaces function
On Macbook Pro 2016 / 2017 models, the Touch Bar may be interfering with the TRAKTOR operation.
- Macbook Pro 2016 / 2017: Disable the Touch Bar settings as explained in this article.
- TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 / S5 / S2: Disable the screensaver and avoid switching Spaces when operating your TRAKTOR KONTROL device.
