djay 2 iPad - tracks drift where djay 1 is fine

djay 2 seems to have a fundamental problem for me making it unusable.

I have two tracks playing in sync, and they quickly drift apart. Using the same files and mixing techniques in djay 1 it is fine. I do not have the tracks 'locked' using the sync button while both are playing - in this case they do not drift. But the auto sync does not match them the way I want to so I do it manually.

With one track playing, I load the 2nd, and hit the sync button to match the playback speed. Then I manually bring in the 2nd track and use the speed nudge +/- controls to match the tracks. At this point they are perfectly matched but immediately they start drifting apart.

You can see the drift visually in the new double-wavefrom scrolling view - the bar lines start separating immediately. Tthe speed match 'sync' button on the second track before starting playback is not quite getting the speed right. Ican manually get the tracks synced consistently by adjusting the speed - and then the two tracks are measured at 0.6 BPM apart in this case (it happens with many tracks though not just these two).

I have re-analysed my entire library in djay2 in case the embedded waveform analysis from djay1 was the problem.

Exactly the same procedure in djay1 results in perfectly matched tracks every time.

Personally, the better library browsing and cosmetic features retro-fitted to djay1 woud be perfect for me. An inability to measure BPM consistently is a serious issue!

The only other feature you need is the pitch adjust like on the Mac version.

The admin on this thread is trying to close the discussion down.

However it is only an 'old topic' because we're still waiting for a satisfactory answer from Algoriddim on this!

The last response was years ago:

Where is the solution please?

This is a hot mess! I had to click the sync button over and over and over but nothing works. The songs just fly out of sync for no reason. Same songs in DJ Pro 1 work fine. If you have NOT upgraded DON'T!

I haven't used djay 2 for a while and had a play around with it on my iPad Air 2 and WeGO4 at the weekend and the tracks do not stay in sync when the BPMs are matched. This is the latest iPad release. They keep going out of sync ever so slightly and enough that you have to keep jogging them back in time.

I don't recall having this issue when I got all this kit last year and I used djay pro on an older iPad and WeGO3 as well at the weekend and I didn't experience this issue.

As much I enjoy a good mix and blend, this issue kind of defeats the point of digital kit.

I updated my iPad Air 2 to iOS 12.0.1 and updated djay 2 to its most recent version and this problem still remains.
