    Default Vinyl rips... beatgrids?

    Guys... it's been a while since I did a vinyl rip.
    Yesterday a friend of mine brought me around 2,000!

    Any suggestions for vinyl rip and possibly no bpm shift?
    Maybe the only way I can get around this will be using beatgrids once they are digitized to MP3?

    what i found works best when beatgridding a song ripped from vinyl is using multiple beatgrids....

    someone correct me if this process is wrong.

    usually nowadays alot of new electronica type tracks are build in a way where if you drop a beatgrid on a down beat....the ticks will most likely be on point through out the whole song.

    the example I used was a track made in like '95 ...I dropped one beat grid at the beginning and not even half way down the track the ticks are shifting. So I then use the 2 arrows above the bpm window to shift the ticks so they match up...I do this in various parts of the song from beginning to the end.

    when I go to check to see if the ticks line up...they shift..

    so what I did was, in the places where I shift the ticks (using the arrows above bmp window) ..i drop a beatgrid marker...and shift the ticks from there..

    by the time i was done...this one track had like 7-8 beatgrid markers...

    the track syncs nice now with other tracks.

    If you have to record that much vinyl, I would recommend if its pressed @ 33.3 rpm, put the turntable speed @ 45 rpm & the pitch @ +8. Then slow it down in the music program that you are using. i.e. pitch down to - 5 or 6 %. It worked for me and I tried to see the difference by recording 2 records, 1st one @ regular speed and the 2nd one pitched up then pitch down in the music program. Then what I did was mix both tracks from start to finish and they were about 95% there. Keep in mind that vinyl always needs very small adjustments when mixing. So when it comes to beatgrids they are always going to be off a bit.

    Good luck with all that vinyl. I had to press all my classic house & hardhouse from the 90's....

    That it, you need to warp it inside of ableton then save the file/reencode it, before opening it up in Traktor to start your beatgridding.
