Sound Issues

Q. My sound keeps skipping, stuttering or popping

Skipping, stuttering, crackling and other sound break-up/glitches are normally caused by performance issues with your computer and/or incorrect configuration in VirtualDJ.

For a list of the most common causes and their solutions, please see the following pages:

NOTE: Many new computers sold in stores are built with typical home/office users in mind and will not be optimized for demanding low latency applications such as VirtualDJ, so they may perform poorly as a result until they have been optimized. To appear to give greater value for money, they are also often loaded with lots of unnecessary software (Bloatware) that the user will probably never use, which can also cause performance issues.
