Would love a quantized beat jump feature. This makes track prep a breeze, not to mention the performance possibilities.

I second that. Another useful addition to make Djay even more professional.

Hey guys, 

thank you for sharing your thoughts. I added your posts to our user request list for a beat jump feature.

Cheers,
Lukas E.

I had my credit card in hand, ready to purchase and switch from Traktor. But then I noticed the lack of this beat jump feature that I use regularly in Traktor... please add this feature and then I will be very glad to give you my money.

Djay pro iPad has the beat jump feature (but missing from the 2 deck preparation page) and I've just found out here that it's missing on the Mac version too. Just a matter of time I guess.

That reply makes no sense. Is beat jump plausible.

Sorry Lukas. I can see what you have done and I understand you can’t give the game away on the forum. My apologies for the misunderstanding. Beat jump has my vote.

Yes, need this in the UI. I think a great place for it would be as a mode to the looping controls with the in/out/time ... placed to the right and left of the waveforms where it is makes a lot of sense.

I am also waiting for this feature to come on. This has been requested so many times; I really think it should be a priority for the next release. Not thing to be annoying about it, but this is certainly the number one thing holding me back from using DJay Pro exclusively.

Looking forward to it, really speeds up cue point setting ...

I fully agree here. To make the workflow usable for controllers without jogwheels (like the Mixtour) it is absolutely necessary to have a feature (MIDI command) that jumps to the next beat.

Nearly every track starts a bit before the first beat and your existing 1/1 beat jump just places you exactly that bit before the next beat, you're stuck if you want to set the cue points to some beat without a jog wheel for fine-tuning.

That is an absolute must-have feature. Otherwise these ultra-compact controllers are useless workflow-wise...

@Algoriddim: are you aware for this and do you plan to build this (I think easily doable) feature?

So, how about any statement from Algoriddim's side here?

It's now 3 years (!) since any reaction from the product management side on that really necessary feature request...
