    Hi there!

    I've recently switched to timecode and have problems setting cue points accurately in Traktor 2.5 Pro. The latency is set to less than 5 ms and it seems like the cue point stays accurate firstly, but after a few taps on the cue button of one of my CDJ 850s, it moves slightly. What can cause this effect? Is there any possibility to get rid of this?

    Thanks!

    Cheers

    I'm guessing that you're actually moving it when you tap cue.

    Of course I'm moving it as soon as I tap cue, this is what the cue button is for. But as soon as I release the cue button and tap it again, the cue point isn't at the same position as before.

    Maybe tapping the cue button is moving the cue points then lol.
