    It really doesn't matter which way it's beat gridded. It will beatmatch perfectly fine.

    I let traktor scan the bpm, then just clean up the gridding a little bit.

    depends how you want the timing of your looping and fx to be.

    70 you'll have longer fx/loops intervals, double time 140 you'll have shorter fx/loops intervals.

    I spin dubstep at 140. Dunno why but I've always done it that way and it's worked. For some tracks I have to double up to 280 believe it or not because Traktor thinks the first down beat is 1/2 a beat off. I'm too lazy to change the grid haha.

    140 will be better in the long run.

    i suppose it really doesnt matter as long as youre consistent.

    i used to run it at 70, and for the life of me i cant remember what problem i ran into that i needed to use it at 140. i think it was something with the beat count. i really cant remember, sorry.

    i think its easier to think about it at 140 because im not really listening just to the kick really, so seeing it at 70 and the grid at 70 just throws me off.

    if you do switch to 140 (i recommend you do if you havnt gridded to many tracks yet.) it will take some getting used to seeing so many more grid lines, but it wont be too much of a bother after a while.

    ive also started using the most zoomed in choice for the wave forms, so if you can deal with the faster speed then you wont have to worry about all the lines.

    each only takes a few hours of play time to get used to.

    140 for dub, 175 (zone) for drum step.

    Makes mashing with breaks and dnb easier

    Btw, who remembers my anti-dubstep rantings? Yeah, 'will they blend' caused a change of heart

    I use 140 because it gives me better control over the beat. If I want to change the song up a bit i'll "drum" with the beatmasher, using my MF to control the values of the beatmasher and repeating like that. It's fun stuff.

    yeah, i forgot to mention. LFOs and stuff will be WAY to slow at 140 if youre playing a brosteppy track.
    and with the more chilled stuff it might almost sound like youre turning down the volume slowly
