    Default beatjumping

    im mapping an mpd32 and want to know if people use the beatjump and for what reason.i've seen shiftees video where he sets a loop and moves the loop 1 beat to repeat a part which sounded good.i've read some threads where people say they use beatjump in every set but i cant think of why this would be needed if cue points are used anyway.hope someone can help.

    I used traktor for 3 years and never once used it haha. If you set your cue points properly and have the ability to drop cues on the fly, I dont really see the need of it. But thats just my opinion of it.

    I use it to skip boring bits of tunes sometimes.

    same, a long build up or something. I have it set to 4 bars/8 bars, and the jump is seemless, so it just shortens a boring break or build up

    if i'm doing a long mix of two songs and they are supposed to go into a break together but one track gets ahead of the other i'll beat jump backward or forward to get the timing right.

    Gree with all previous replies. Very helpful when used to skip long buildups or low-energy beats. The fact they are beatsynced enough is very helpful too.

    Going forwards or backwards to the beat and you can make an on the fly sort of remix.
