Djay 2 Pro is using lots of CPU power, even in idle mode

Hi there,

just bought Djay2. Awesome piece! BUT…

As you can see in the following video, the software is consuming lots of CPU power but it doesn’t do anything (visible). I don’t play any track, the system is just paused. But still, CPU usage is about 200%.

What’s the matter here?

System: Mac OS X 10.10.3, 15 inch late 2013, 2 Ghz Intel Core i7, 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB

This seems to be a lot power the app is using.

Hope you can help.

Thanks! That solved the prob.

Thank you so much for this detailed post. We paid attention to it and took care of it the CPU usage.
Please update to djay Pro 1.1.1 and try it again!

I’m running Djay Pro Version 1.2.1 on a MacBook Pro and it’s still the same. The cooling fan still goes creasy!!! ;(

CPU Usage after the App has been startet (no track is loaded):

CPU Usage with 2 Spotify tracks playing in fullscreen mode after 5 minutes:

Energy Consumption after 10 minutes 2 Spotify tracks loaded and paused

The problem is related to the window size (screen resolution) of the app interface! The worst case is the fullscreen mode on a retina display with a scaled screen resolution. When I change the screen resolution or scaling the app window down, than the CPU load and the cooling fan goes down as well.
