    Default Rekorbox with DDJ400 - high CPU usage.

    Hi
    I have upgraded my old Numark mixdeck express running with VDJ to the new pioneer ddj400 running with their Recordbox software.

    I am running Rekordbox on a windows laptop and noticed that it's using about 70% CPU usage which is high compared to other DJ/mixing software's that i used in the past like VDJ on the same laptop.
    Rekordbox is stable so far, but the laptop sounds like a jet just about to take off!!

    Anyone else using Rekorbox on here noticed this??

    Thanks

    Rekordbox is so heavy and can't really see why.

    They could do with a better build team.

    If dj software makes a big spike in cpu usage my reckoning is it's not fit for purpose. What's recordbox written in, JAVA?

    HHmmm not sure if it's written in Java lol. In all honesty. i like Rekorbox and very similar to VDJ. Yes it does spike the CPU to 100% every now and then but keeps disk drive very low compared to other DJ software's. It hasn't crashed yet but only tried it at home for about 2 hours. I'm hoping that they release an update to fix this.
