Topic: "Exclusive Audio Access"
jbezzPRO InfinityMember since 2010
Some users are stating that they are experiencing audio pops with b.2587 when "Exclusive Audio Access" is set to "Yes". Can someone explain what exactly "Exclusive Audio Access" is used for, and what difference setting it to "Yes" or "No" would make! Thank you!

It Prevents other applications from making any sounds, lets VDJ take exclusive control of your sound card, i think by default it is set to NO

That's what I thought. So it probably can't cause "pops" in the output? Correct?

Depends on what sound card or controller the person is using. Asio drivers normally cause pops if the latency is set too low.

Whether the card has exclusive access shouldn't make any difference.

Hi Folks, thanks for the input.

Everything works great with my Denon MC4000 until I turn on Exclusive Audio Access this is when I start to get all sorts of Popping sounds.

All of my drivers and firmware are up to date and I have messed around with all sorts of different latency settings.

I have submitted a support ticket and was told that Exclusive Audio access was to improve poor sound cards and that there is no reason I would need to use that setting.

Big Picture, the setting isn't really all that important. I just don't like unanswered question marks.

Are you using the Denon ASIO drivers in the Audio setup of VirtualDJ ? If yes, then normally the setting shouldnt have any affect.

Just wanted to throw my experience with this out there.

I'm using a Denon MC4000, and when I use the soundcard through the Denon and enable this setting, it affects my audio output through the controller. It's annoying as all hell, the music has little pops through the full output and through the headphones. I finally figured it out last night, I could never figure out where it came from.

I have tried updating my firmware and everythign but no luck with any other fix
