Sound Lags running djay pro 2 on macbook pro

Hi guys,

maybe one of you guys know something helpful. The support guys are not reacting for round about 2 weeks :(

So here is my problem (posted in the apple community too):

Since a few months I'm facing problems with my macbook pro an djay pro. My issue is, running djay pro (with or without DJ Controller) the sound lags (mostly a few milliseconds up to 1s) when scrolling through the playlists or songlist. This happens with Djay pro 1 and djay pro2. I recognized that issue by upgrading to mojave. The support of algoriddim doesn't have a helping solution (since round about 5 Months) aswell... The sound lags too, if djay pro is playing and I am scrolling for example in safari and so on. This doesn't matter if the song is an mp3 on the SSD or comming from Sportify/apple music or NAS in my LAN.

So I am still investigating this issue, but this is the first time I really have no clue what the problem is...

What I did without any solution:
- macbook integrated HW Check (pressing "D" on startup) => no issues or errors
- Upgraded the drivers and Firmware of my DJ Controller
- used different software versions of djay pro 2 (2.0.4, 2.0.8, 2.0.10 => latest version)
- deactivated spotlight
- installed macOS el Capitain, High Sierra and Mojave naked, without any drivers or apps any other than the OS delivered ones and djay pro 1 and 2
- running the app (2.0.8) testwise on my sisters macbook running mojave => djay pro 2 was running without any lags and rock stable...
- reset of NVRAM, PRAM and SMC

MacBook pro is

Modelname: MacBook Pro
Model-ID: MacBookPro12,1
CPUType: Intel Core i5

CPUs: 1
CPU Cores: 2
L2-Cache (core): 256 KB

Do you have any ideas what to check or what to configure or set?

Thanks a lot guys and regards

PS.: I never thought, that I would say these words... Djay pro 1 runs fine on my Windows 10 Laptop ... no words...

    I'm having the same issues when using djay pro and djay pro 2. Using MacBook Pro 2018 15" 2.9 GHz, i9, 6 core CPU, 16 GB RAM, 1T SSD.
    issues usually start happening after 20-30 min of use. If using Reloop Mixon 4, Problems are worse. Oddly I don't have the same issues using an iPad.... But who uses an iPad on a professional event. (I guess I Last 4 events, I have my iPad ready as a back up and had to use it each time....
    Never happened on my MacBook Pro 08 with 1st VR of Djay... What's the deal?
