    Default Annoying habit...

    I wouldn’t necessarily call it a habit, but sometimes when I listen to a track (purchased, free download, etc.), it sounds off. Like not beatgridded. The track isn’t playing through Traktor or any other kind of software. Is it me or do some tracks just sound like this sometimes? If this is a stupid question, don't judge me!

    I won't judge you, but yeah, it's in your head. How can you hear beatgrids? Can you hear the cue points on normal songs?

    For example, it sounds like a single track is two tracks being mixed together, out of beat.

    Um, couple ideas:

    1. Stop downloading free tracks
    2. Listen to the track before you get it
    3. Maybe one ear is hearing one part and the other is hearing the other part a bit late
    4. Don't do drugs

    I don't know dude, want to give up an example? I'm sure there are dudes here that would tell you if you're nuts or not. Lol

    I think this is very much in your head, mate.

    But... Some older hip-hop tunes can sound a little like this - it happens when sampled beats/loops arent perfectly cropped.

    It's part of what gave early hip-hop it's "rawness". You couldn't zoom in on the transients on the old MPC's like you can now with DAW's.

    Guess it's just me. Weird. Maybe I have two brains.
