    I've borrowed a couple of cdj800s to record a 3 deck mix with and I tried using it with traktor this morning but it just plays tunes ridiculously fast.

    Ive been using traktor for the past 6 months perfectly fine with a pair of 1210s so I don't know what settings I need to change or what I'm doing wrong to make the playback so fast.

    You have the wrong version of the CD for your software, you need to get the MK1 disc.. This happened to me, live, fucked me right over lol!

    The weird thing is sometimes when I reset the computer or traktor the first tune I select plays normally but after that it just goes back to being really fast.

    Absolute piss take if I've gotta get new control CDs, wanted to get a mix recorded asap and cba waiting for postage over christmas to get new ones.

    Did you win the battle to become the original DJ Turt?

    It seems not, the other (less original) turt is still posting sewer mixes.

    Don't wanna be associated with that shit!

    Pretty sure you can download and burn the time code signal to some writable cd's mate. Takes 2 mins.

    Any chance you could direct me towards a downloadable mrk1 version Dedbult?

    Just tried downloading one and it appears to work... but the tempo change has gone the opposite direction, now its -20%
