  1. I tried this out on Tiger and found the playback quality to be bad, even with the pitch adjustment slider at 0.

    Is there a way to view the waveforms of the files, and adjust the start point on the waveform? There’s a track in my library that is starting too late, making cueing difficult.

    Searching for songs could be a lot faster, it seems, although maybe CPU usage on my intel iMac was very high during playback – I didn’t look. I was using my local iTunes library as the source of songs.

  2. Hi there two_ears_good,

    Dave here (from… did you try turning off Pitch Lock altogether, and if so, did that speed things up / improve the playback quality? Not all Macs are up to the job of Pitch Lock.

    We don't have a waveform feature yet, but you can cue using the shuttle wheel on each CD Player. Also, check if you have a Start Time set in iTunes, as DJ-1800 uses these if they exist.

    Hope this helps!
