Why DJUCED recording feature is disabled when using Tidal music? #

When using a streaming service, you don’t own the music, you have access to read it.

Our contract with Tidal includes that DJUCED can’t record any audio coming from the service.

Why accessing/downloading Tidal music files takes time? #

Tidal proposes two high-quality subscriptions and delivers 320 kbps AAC Streaming music, and also FLAC files.

In these formats, 4 minutes of music is a file around 12Mb for AAC, 40Mb for FLAC.

That’s why having a good and stable internet connection is required for a good experience.

I can’t Login to Tidal in DJUCED, what should I do? #

Tidal is an online service that requires an Internet connection to work with DJUCED, and also a subscription.

If you can’t access to Tidal service in DJUCED, please check that:

  1. Tidal service is online – If it’s offline, it will not work either in DJUCED.
  2. DJUCED application is authorized to communicate with the internet – so – that a firewall or an antivirus program doesn’t block DJUCED.
  3. Your internet connection is stable and fast.
  4. You are using the latest DJUCED version, streaming access updates require it.


I have a white blank screen when log in, or a “block” message, what should I do ? #

In that case, you will have to clear the DJUCED internal browser cache.
You are not really blocked.

To do so:

  • Close DJUCED
  • Go into your “Documents/DJUCED” folder on your computer.
  • Locate the folder “url cache” and delete it
  • Restart DJUCED and try again to log in – if the message or blank page still occur – restart DJUCED until the Login Window appears correctly.
  • Try to login from the Settings and not from the Main Interface.
