    I'm just wondering if the needles jump or decks get knocked does the track skip or jump?

    Thanks

    With Serato it depends which mode you are using

    generally if there is a small amount of fluff and it moves by a tiny bit traktor will pull it back but you get a little whurrr sound...im sure ive heard this a few times out.

    if it jumps by a fair amount then it will just jump the timecode though

    If you get fluff on the needle the audio starts to degrade and eventually cut out. Also my timecodes give off this blue flaky shit as the needles wear them down. HTH.

    Your weight sounds like its set too high then??


    With me, if im in a particularly bassy environment and the needles prone to skipping i'll just load a tune, cue it up, play it, then change the mode to relative, then wherever it skips to it continues playing from where it skipped from (if that makes sense).
