Sound issues: crackle, garble, slowing down

Cross DJ For Android has worked well for me since I purchased it a couple of years ago, but recently it has been producing crackling noises and garbling while playing when I go into playlists or database to search for next tracks, and I've also had a track slow down and speed up while I performed a search.

This is not acceptable, as I use the app professionally in my work.

How can I fix these issues?

I'm using Cross DJ (paid) 3.2.2 on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 with Android 7.0. I've tried changing several settings, including the decoders, the Async setting, and the latency slider.

If it's not resolved by changing the settings there are 2 suspected causes. First would you're running out of free disk cap of your device. Or other apps have increased in CPU usage leaving Cross with less capacity to run with.

I'm having similar problems. One track is loaded, everything is playing fine. I load a second track, when I attempt to mix there is a slow down on both tracks and a lack of sync. Totally useless app now and I have a gig in 2 weeks! There is plenty of memory remaining and I've done a ram and cpu clean up, but doesn't help. I have barely any apps on this tablet since it's for Djing mainly, so nothing else is using the memory. Cross DJ has worked (quite) well since I first purchased it. Only a few weeks ago it was working normally. I have a little play today and suddenly it's glitchy as hell. I've not put any other apps on the tab, so what else could be the problem?

A factory reset fixed the issue. But now I have the laborious task of making my playlists again! At least I screen shot them to remember the lists.
