The upgrade to macOS 11.0 made the current version of MIXXX impossible to use, and so I had to start using the beta. I run my microphone and opening music through GarageBand, and that used to workk fine with MIXXX 2.2.4 before the update. But using the 2.3.0 beta creates a memory problem with GarageBand, resulting in the application stopping and a “Disk Too Slow or System Overload” message. I have at least 15GB of unclaimed RAM so that’s not an issue. Has anyone else experienced this?
Hi @Randalynn have not tested Mixxx on Big Sur yet as I am still on 10.15, but considering updating in the near future.
With Mixxx 2.3 beta releases I am seeing laggy UI behavior on Catalina. Can you confirm or deny this behavior on Big Sur? Wondering if this could be related.
I’ve noticed a significant slowdown throughout my system using Mixxx and Big Sur, but after Mixxx is shut down, the slowdown continues. Could be linked to the memory issues I have with GarageBand.
This sounds more like a problem with your mac (and maybe GarageBand) than with mixxx to be honest. So if you restart your mac and start mixxx you are seeing the problem already?
It turns out that it was actually another third-party app that created a conflict with GarageBand — something called Splashtop Streamer. When I stop that app from running in the background, the GarageBand issue goes away. But now I have another issue — mixxx keeps dropping the streaming signal for three to five seconds in the middle of a song, disrupting a set over and over Is there a way to stop that? Some settings I’m not aware of?
I was wrong about Splashtop Streamer … still getting the error. sigh
