Brand new Macbook pro having usb dropouts with mix emergency and serato video

edited December 2016 in MixEmergency
i just bought a 2015 13" macbook pro with a 3.1 Ghz i7 16GB of Ram and getting dropouts like never before, not sure what the issue is. Never had this issue with my old 2011 15" Macbook pro :-(


  • Do you get the dropouts when you're using Serato DJ only?
  • Are you playing your videos from an external drive, or from your internal drive?
  • I'm guessing it's due to the fact that your machine is only a dual core processor with only integrated graphics not dedicated graphics and so it's taking more system resources than the machine can handle when running video especially if you're outputting at 720 or higher ... If you are using an external for your videos via USB that could be hindering performance as well since the USB bandwidth is shared with each other ... If you do use an external try out a thunderbolt external and it may help to open up that USB bandwidth a little
