    Default Beatgridding Odd Tracks Help

    So Ive done some searching and cant come up with a way to beatgrid some of my tunes.
    If someone could definitively say whether or not you can beatgrid:
    1. a song with two different sections of different bpms
    2. a song where the beats are shifted at some point\
    3. a song with an accelerating tempo

    (ive tried setting up multiple grid cues and it just ends up screwing the whole thing up...)

    Thanks DJTT

    1. I'd beatgrid the beginning and drop a second beat grid at whereever you'd want to mix out or 1 minute to 30 seconds before that point.

    2.See above

    3. Depends, is it a steadily rising BPM through the whole track?

    If all else fails, do it old school and free hand/style or just "slam that fader over" Brother.

    I'm really no expert but i had alot of trouble beat gridding a song yesterday and i layed down a bunch of cue/grid points and lined up the grid in sections between the cue points.

    sup dj tech tools. first post!


    Funny you ask that I came here and immediately thought of that song. I scroll down and lo and behold...ha. Heard skream and benga drop it this week on their "in new djs we trust" segment. pretty sure they started with it and filtered out/talked over it. Track seems pretty impossible in Traktor.

    I use some BPM transition edits, so there are two definite BPM's.
    a bit annoying maybe, but i usually have two copies of the song and i'll cut from one to other at a cue point.

    Hiya T - try Ricardo Villalobos's reworking of Energy 52's 'Cafe Del Mar' - a pain in the you-know-what!
