    Default No downbeat section...how to mix it?

    I have never figured out how to mix a track that doesnt have a downbeat section, or those songs that don't really have a build up. Normally I just pre-measure them to where the downbeats of song are going to stop and the other song is going to drop.

    Any ideas?

    I have the S4, is there any effects that are designed to help me with this? : D

    It would be perfect for my mix.

    But I cant find a song that would be able to fit into there...

    the downbeat is starting in min 02:04. also there is not too much happening in this track. you could easily drop in another track. btw. outro is starting at min 04:07...

    I didn't realize the 2:20 minutes in it has a downbeat...

    The waveform is really big on traktor...I should of listen to it first.

    But I have had this happen on other songs, I cant remember any of them now of course.

    You can still drop it earlier by finding the first beat and then beat jumping by 32 beats backwards. Once you are early enough set a load marker and then just go from there next time.
