We used this set up for the first time the other evening - with both laptops in 4 deck mode, one on 3 and 4 and the other on 1 and 2.
This works fine but I had endless problems with syncing.
Nothing seemed to work properly - when i pressed the sync on a track, the speed would often change to a random figure, the sync light wouldn’t turn on and so on.
I just couldn’t figure out what was going on - could someone explain how this works?
@Tony123 here’s an article explaining how the Sync function works in djay. Please note that this will not Sync across the 2 different laptops. You will only be able to Sync the tracks on each laptop individually.
I explain more how the Master Tempo works in this thread:
@fmpwizard regarding your Master Tempo question, I recommend you first read the support article below on how the two different types of Sync work in djay depending on your settings.
Now for the harder part. Honestly, I’ve been using djay for many years and I’m still not 100% sure how the Master Deck is determined. Again, I suggest you experiment with 2 Deck Mode first to get a better sense of how it works. I’ll explain my experience with 3 common scenarios:
SCENARIO 1: No Decks Playing
If you want to keep the songs across both laptops synced you will need to use the Ableton Link feature in djay on both laptops.
This is so helpful, thank you. I will have a good dig through all this.
Where we were playing had no Wi-Fi but I now can see that we can use Ethernet to get ableton link going.
@Tony123 you’re welcome. Happy to help. If you’re using Macs, I believe you can also create a device to device wireless network connection without wifi.
@Tony123 I also talk more about Ableton link in another thread.
Is it possible to sync other apps with the clock from djpro ? I see some midi tools and my other apps are showing up in the list but nothing seems to work together.
