My Question or Issue

Never had Problems with the App but since i´m using Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S4 MK3 as my Interface it stopped working. All other Apps/Programms with sound outout working fine but when i try to play something in the Spotify app it just loops thru the Playlist without playing anything and says "Spotify can´t play.."

 

What i tried:

- Uninstall, reinstall using Website

- Uninstall, reinstall using Microsoft App Downloader

- Disable Hardware acceleration in App settings

- Deactivate all other Sound-In/outputs

- Deactivate exclusive mode in advance settings for Interfaceoutput

- Updated Interface driver

 

I´m desperate 😕

Oh boi. I guess i just fixed it. With you help, of course!! 

Since everything worked fine plug and play after installing Traktor Pro3 Software i never look for additional driver. On the NI Website i just found a S4 MK3 ASIO driver. After installing it i was able to change the Bitrate and Hz. 24 bit 44hz was set without the driver and was causing the problem, from what i can tell now. I set the Samplerate to 24 bit 48 hz and Spotify is working again!!

So Happy 😄

Hey @Raffa6886 

 

Does anything change when you try setting your Traktor interface as the default for Spotify specifically - from your screenshots I see it's currently just "Standard"? 🙂

 

Did that start happening recently?

Nope. doesn't change anything. I guess Standard is just what you choose as "Hauptlautstärke". So this should be ok. 

 

It never worked with the Traktor Interface. When i was searching for a solution i found several ppl having problems with external audio interfaces but non of the solutions worked for me unfortunately.

 

Thank you!

It is true that there are some issues arising with Spotify and external audio interfaces.

Mostly the issue is with the device not being default (yours is), and occasionally the internal audio device seems to interfere in some way that it needs to be disabled in Device Manager.

 

Sample rate doesn't seem to be an issue either because your Traktor doesn't seem to be using anything higher than 96 kbps. (Sample rates higher than 192kbps don't work for Spotify, causing skips).

 

I would suggest trying if the web player works for you.

I'd like to think Traktor works just like a (glorified) audio interface without much restriction as of where audio is coming from.

 

Let me know how it goes!

I'm having the same problem but with a Traktor S4 MK2. I just updated Windows and now this issue has popped up. Anyone know how I can fix this?

Hey @Aceevee 

 

Do you have this ASIO driver installed the other user found? Make sure the device's drivers are up to date as well, and check if Windows missed any updates.

 

If an update caused this, try looking if it's still a default interface Windows' Sound Settings. Scroll down in there, click on 'Other Sound Options' to reveal 'App volume and device preferences'.

 

Let me know how it goes 🙂

The issue seemed to magically fix itself after reinstalling Traktor and deleting some drivers I didn't need. Thank you for your help!
