    Welcome to the forums

    Saying "just cant make it" isnt very descriptive - maybe you could be more specific by telling us what in particular your having trouble with ?

    I think he means he cant get the beats to match automatically. Do you?

    Are you using beatgrids or trying to manually sync ?

    beatgrid you tracks @ the first clap or snare, and beatmix like electro. Instead of starting on the first kick drum, you start off the clap/snare.

    ok cool i ll try that and see how i go.
    man i tell you the learning curve never stop, you think you know something and bang another door opens and you got to start all over again. very challenging but very frustrating at times.
    thanks a lots all guys for all the answers really appreciate it, really helped me out reading out the forum.

    such is the nature of knowledge

    on topic- ive found from the limited amounts of hiphop that i have gridded, that hiphop never has a consistant beat all the way thru, any breakdowns/bridges etc seem to be out of time, and i have noticed the odd tempo change, its real weird i cant get my head around it, i didnt try for long tho its not my scene
