crackles when using low pass filter

  • Problem
  • Updated 1 week ago
I noticed this problem using the LPF both in djay for Mac and in djay2. It sounds like clipping when you use it (at around 1/2 to 3/4 of the LPF level). It is stronger in some songs and parts of tracks than in others, but it's definitely a problem. LPF in Traktor 2.6 and Traktor DJ works clean without crackle or clipping sounds. I can also send a recorded audio sample if you like.

@algoriddim: Please test for example this song at around 1:00 with shown filter setting. It sounds awful. No external sound card, mixer or controller is used. The same happens with djay for Mac.

Hi Algoriddim Team,

Thanks for the latest update and for improving the software. I was happy to read about the new function "audio limiter" that should prevent distortion, but for the crackling while using the LPF it still doesn't work! Please keep working on it, because LPF can only be used to a certain level and this is too bad for a DJ performance.

Thanks,
my-v

Once again, I highly appreciate the further development of this DJ Software. Spotify Integration was a huge surprise. Filter Problem is not solved. I wonder why other users do not complain about it as it is no phenomom that only sometimes appears. You can replicate it with almost song. Am I the only user of LPF??? :o(

I have to agree on this one. I just purchased djay pro a month ago from the app store and it is instantly low quality and distorted on every song. This makes the filter pretty much unusable. I fear that it is just a low quality filter, and the solution will not come any time soon.

Come on, Algoriddim! Nothing happened for more than one year!

Even djay pro users complain about this issue. This is a basic function of the software and it's still not working clean. To me as a semi-professional user it's not acceptable! For professional users this is an absolutely "no go"!

I posted this issue over 3 years ago! No improvment until today. It's even a bug in Djay "Pro", which is poor as it is not usable in front of an audience. So no professional use of your App possible. A waste of Money. Very very bad performance of Algoriddim. As only a few guys complain it seems to me that Djay remains a amateur DJ App and the quality is enough for this targeted group.

A patient but dissapointed (ex) customer.

Hi there,

be assured that the LPF crackles are on our agenda. I got informed about this issue by another source, it appeared that the topic was not in our issue tracking system before which I want to apologise for.

If you have any questions or suggestions, or if you would like further information, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Cheers,Lukas E.

Lukas, can you please give an update? 4 more months are gone. Meanwhile I purchased a Reloop Mixon 4 hybrid controller but I have to work with Serato (which is not the worst option) as there are still these sound issues while using filter in Djay Pro. Workflow in Djay Pro is amazing with this controller but as I said I can't use it in public locations due to these crackles.

After 4 years and they still haven't fix the issue ? I bough djay pro a month ago and i use a ddj sx2. I have to say the LPF still un useful when performing to an audience . Hope they fix it other wise I might have to go back to Traktor or try Serato dj .

I've been using DJay2 for a little more than three years and my recordings were pretty good. I just upgraded to DJay Pro and noticed during the replay and most of my recordings have clipping, crackling and distortion. The experience started so promisingly...the interface is beautiful. Good luck Aldoriddim team...for now I'm going back to DJay2

it has a hi resonance on the filter. if they would fix that it would be awesome and useful, like the one in Traktor. These are crap.

Would be really cool if you guys could look into that. The filters aren't very clean to use. At times doesn't sound professional.
Thanks

Frankly spoken, it is a shame for an Apple Design Award winning DJ App that calls itself "PRO". Never experienced such a poor performance in terms of SW devepelopment and/or bug fixing.This bug has not been fixed for more than five (!) years! No words for that. I switched to professionell DJ SW meanwhile.

Really? I just paid $50 for this and it doesn't happen on Serato. You guys know why you're superior right? With your software you're able to add Spotify and that's why we don't wanna give up on you. Something's gotta give

Just tested the freshly available iOS djay version with optional PRO subscription!

The advertised new audio engine gave me a little hope that Algoriddim guys solved the filter issue with the new release, after "only" 5 years. What shall I say? You guys seem to simply ignore our claims and this bug! There are still these horrible sound issues between -70 and -80% (depends on tested tracks). You are selling great new features (looper is a big one) but you prevent people from using your app in a professional way as the basics do not work! Do your homework!

...I agree here. I tested this using the most recent iPhone app. Still there's sometimes some digital clipping when going to more than -50% of the filter value. That's not only unusable in a pro DJ set but also embarrassing even in a leisure set.

That fix is a must. Algoriddim: do you still have this problem on your list? What about a fix?

It‘s quite ridiculous to read that this issue is not fixed yet, after meanwhile six years!

Lukas E, 3 years ago you informed us that this issue is on your agenda. What has happened since then?

...tested it with the newest Mac & IOS versions (IOS 3.2.2 / Mac 2.0.15) - still the same issue with clipping distortion & crackles despite the fact that at least in the latest IOS version "Improved Filter range and resonance" is advertised. So, Algoriddim: that's still on your bug list?
