Cross Fader keeps drifting on Beatpad2 with iPad

Hello, hoping you all can help me out. Recently, the cross Vader on the beat pad to has not been syncing up with the app. Even when I push the cross Fader all the way to the left on the software, it’s only showing the saw the cross feather moving about 3/4 of the way to the left.

I cleaned the board and use a duster to clean the inside, but this didn’t seem to help. Any suggestions? Is this a software issue or something going on with my hardware?

Hi @SirDC,

Thanks for posting to the community for the first time!

So that I can better assist you could you please answer the following questions:

  1. Have you recently spilled anything or possibly (even minimally) damaged your Beatpad 2?
  2. Have you noticed that other faders, knobs or buttons are losing their effectiveness as well?
  3. Have you tried using MIDI Scope for iOS (available in the app store) to test whether or not the crossfader is sending the precise signals needed for djay to recognize a full left to right (or vice versa) movement from the Beatpad 2?

Looking forward to hearing back from you!

Thanks for the reply!

  1. No, I haven’t spilled anything, I did use a computer dust cleaner to try and remove any dust, etc in the system.
  2. I have not noticed any other knobs or faders losing effectiveness. Just the cross-fader.
  3. I have not used MIDI scope! I will try that next and give an update soon!

Thanks again for the help!
