    Default Mixed In Key 7 - Set Cue Points

    Hey guys,

    So I just updated my MIK 5 to 7. I was interested in the automatic cue points. Now, before you go on a rant about how it's taking away the essence of DJing and all the criticism, I figured it was a great tool to have cues done for us so we can spend more time on other important aspects of DJing.

    Anyway, I downloaded and reanalyzed all my tracks (took a total of 4 hours) and in the interface displayed how many cue points on each track. I then uploaded them into Serato, later to find out that 50% of my songs were correctly cued and the other 50% with half a beat off on the grid. There was an option to leave the original cue points on songs I have done in the past so those were not affected. I am wondering has anyone had this same problem after downloading the new MIK 7? I have reached out to the MIK community and it seems like a few have similar issues.

    yeah at first glance, seems like a great time saver but its still very buggy. im sure they will fix it in firmware update.

    MIK7 will set cue for both Serato and Traktor.

    Almost did the upgrade for this reason. Not because I need help with the cue points, I just thought it was finally a cool enough feature to be worth the upgrade. Going to wait until they fix the bugs on this one.

    Well my guess is they are usuing flows down beat detection which is roughly 50% accurate in my experience so until that gets resolved it'll be an issue I'm guessing

    Aren't you supposed to analyse the track in your software (Traktor/Serato) to ensure that the downbeat/beat 1 is already set before you run tracks through MiK?

    I'm sure I read that recently...?
