windows laptop specifications beatpad latency

What spec of windows laptop do you need for this been trying it with beatpad 2 and awful lag latency and I’ve clicked exclusive mode any ideas on how to fix this

Note: This conversation was created from a reply on: Why don’t release the djay PRO for Windows?.

yes ive wrote this also in my post if you haven’t already seen I run a i5 processor on my laptop which runs great with traktor

the audio seems fine when playing just loading of tracks very slow and the midi is lagging badly

unfortuntly gonna have to give up on this and use ipad version because cant get this perfect at all and stick also to my ipad and beatpad 2 is same thing really I also have a traktor s8 and traktor pro 2 so not stuck at all but hopefully we all get the Spotify offline playlists we all crave for like pulselocker have did

Hey Collin,

thank you for your interest in djay Pro for Windows. Have you tried out the Exclusive mode of djay in the Audio Device settings?

Cheers,Lukas E.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I see, is the audio lagging or the midi?

Cheers,Lukas E.

Hey Colin Gill,

we are sorry to hear that. Have you tried the latest Windows version which came out recently?
Also regarding offline Spotify usage, noted your request.

Cheers,Lukas E.

Hey Nico V.,

those are very very good performance improvement suggestions.
Thank you for sharing!

Cheers,Lukas E.


I have a Beatpad2 on an HP X360 i5 laptop. Everything works perfect.

If you open the task manager ( after Ctrl-Alt-Del ). Try to look for programs or services who consumes a lot of processor or Hd resources.

Shut down the programs you dont need.

Maybe try to run DjayPro in Game Mode ( latest Win 10 build ), this mode reserves more resources for the program.

Exclude the DjayPro directorie from AntiVirus scanning, may help too.
