would like to see if someone has tried it dont want to fuck up hours of work gridding loads of my tunes.

0 |

well do 1 track then you numpty

All gridded then listed with mix in key to show what mixes with what. Auto beatmatch and key listed, you plan to do anything?

:)

Only raking. It shouldn't delete anything as they both use different tagging file types i think

I really don't like mixed in key. Where's the fun in that?

0 |

its more for the ambient stuff for sitting about during the day i have a nightmare with funk stuff aswell. wouldnt use it for 4/4 house/techno stuff as whats the point you kind of know what goes with what. Anyway i make mixes to impress no one, just stick a few tunes i like into a mix for work or sitting on the balcony before i head out.

keep getting glitches in the sound every so often. have closed down any unnecessary programs & antivirus. runnin an audio 4 7 have updated to latest codecs with 2gb ram. any thoughts on how to fix it?

Adjust the latency settings in the preferences. Adjust it so that your sound doesnt stop and start. Those specs aren't the best for Traktor. A macbook is perfect for running Traktor smoothly, due to the way its designed for audio.

i have actually had the macbook running traktor while photoshop and firefox have been in use without a glitch.

my 6 yr old macbook runs traktor better than my higher spec 2 yr old pc

Didnt reset my grids/bpm or cues in serato itch when I ran a load of house music through it the other day, it even listed a few songs as lower bpm than they were according to itch but itch kept the bpm at what it analysed it.

On Traktor with odd tempo stuff you need to make more use of the beatgriding, cue points and markers. Its not a bad thing imho, it makes fora better thought out set. Any 4/4 house track ripped at cd quality is pretty handy to mix with Traktor.

Im a total beginner at this. Getting traktor ordered today, but download traktor pro demo the other night. I love that you can change a key in music. Seems like magic to me. Anyway, is there a way of finding out what key a tune is in, without looking at beatport or online.

ive got an s2 with traktor pro atm and was wondering what the craic is with setting it all up to cdjs. am i right in thinkin that you can you traktor pro pretty much straight up with cdj900/cdj2000/cdj400? but need traktor scratch pro for the rest. thinkin bout switching from controller to traktor and cdjs soonish?

0 |

U need traktor scratch to use with any type of control vinyl or cd!

0 |

s2 doesnt have any inputs. I got my s2 other day. Starting to do some beatgrids and playing with some custom mapping. Anyone suggest something to do next with them.

load rip groove into deck a

0 |

chill can i use traktor scratch with any cdjs then?

0 |

Yes. It's only an audio signal

0 |

A tone

0 |

sorry bout this but, what then do i need for a full scratch setup?

0 |

This

Mixer and cd decks

ahh getcha now. whats the craic with this HID mode ive seen floatin about recently then?

0 |

Not sure, think its where the cdj recognizes all your cue and loop points but it's only the cdj200s

Could be wrong but there's loads of vids online about it

0 |

yeah having a look at these vids here. i was sorta right in my first post it seems to be 2000s/900s/400s you can do it on, as i noticed in my traktor setup wizard that you can choose to use them 3 as your external device. if this is the way it seems to be moving then it sorta seems a bit like timecode is gonna get phased out for cdjs

0 |

Ah right. Didn't see that post.

0 |

right, after 4 days with traktor, i dont know what ive let myself in for. Theres so much to learn, i feel like ive open pandoras box. I dont have time for this shit. You knew were you were with technics. Trying to beat match I would tweak with the gains a bit, galloping horses, no problem touch the spindle thingy. I've maybe only used technics for an hour or two in my mates. With traktor everything is flying over my head. loops, loop recorder, flanger, beat masher. My heads hurting. Im going to try and stick with it though.

0 |

if you want mm you can just use the basics in Traktor and Serato like you would with the technics:)

Im not te beat at beat matching, so ive turned off syncing, and trying to match bpm and beats by ear. But seen that even with sync switched off it has a indicator of the beats coming into sync. I suppose doing it woth anything but by ear is concidered cheating.

Set your laptop off to the side or something

0 |

you can turn off the phase meter and bpm etc.

anyone know if its possible to use traktor scratch pro with an s2? thinkin bout getting the scratch upgrade for £90 if its possible then i could use my s2 in the house and scratch when playing out.

0 |

Yep u think so. just select the two different types of control in setup depending on what you want to use

0 |

Does the S2 have two direct audio in channels like the s4?

0 |

nah the s2 only has outputs, cant have any inputs.

0 |

dont think you can use scratch with it then. i have an s4 an two turntables. havent bought scratch upgrade yet, as going to sell it for mixer and audio4 soundcard. but have deck c and d as live inputs to play records. but in order to use scratch you need two input channels afaik.

traktor keeps skippin on me when its playin. just bout new laptop with i5 & 6gb ram so that shouldn't be a problem. Could it be the audio 4 drivers? any ideas?

0 |

does it still skip with the new laptop?

0 |

yep skippin on the new laptop

0 |

could be a problem with your latency settings sample rate. that happened to me before, cant remember the exact way of it, but it was set to 48000, and i had to change it to 44100 or vice versa, cant quite remember. thats the only problem ive ever had with skipping.

0 |

Make sure soundcard is in usb that isn't connected to anything such as built in camera

0 |

When u say "skipping" do u mean like when a cd jumps? Like a stuttering sound? If so, the latency is too low for the pc to deal with!

0 |

got it sorted increased the latency so skippin has been minimised. also got another external soundcard seems to work fine while running traktor
