    Default BPM's still in question

    I took some heat about this before and now it's propagating into our youth.

    Can we teach them to read and correctly identify BPM's before we leave a legacy of corrupt ID3's ?

    TRAP is NOT in the 120-150 BPM range.

    Here is an actual TRAP producer stating it correctly as 67 BPM.

    Why does it matter?

    If the readout wasn't there it wouldn't make a difference? You could still beatmatch one into another.

    Surprise surprise, Trap producers loosely understand basic music theory... What's our next lesson? The majority of DJs don't understand the basics of sound engineering or software?

    Looking for trouble, eh?

    Imo its irrelevant what people decide to tag their bpms at. They can do whatever works best for them and their mixing style.

    same goes for dubstep. it´s all a matter of taste and in what way you´re mixing.

    Technically and sonically speaking, there is a huge difference between 70 BPM and 140 BPM, so it does irk me when BPMs are mislabeled. As others have said, it doesn't matter when beatmatching, but it makes a huge difference in the flow of the mix.
    Check out my Youtube channel for controllerism routines, mashups, tutorials, etc. using Midi Fighters and other tasty gear.

    care you give me an example? cause i don´t see a difference transitioning from 140bpm to a 70bpm track or the other way around.
