Seting a 1, 2 or 4 beat loop has a bug

If I set a 1, 2 or 4 beat loop with a mapped button the loop is to long or to short. It does not match the beats.

Hi Manfred,

thank you for your post. 

Could you give us some more informations please:
Which controller are you using?
Is the inaccurate size of the loop occurring with all your songs or just with some specific ones?

Thank you in advance,
cheers.

Lukas E.

I don't think this has to do with my controller (VCI 400)


I think this has to do that in Salsa the beat is not constant like in electronic music because of the live drummer.


Djay Pro analyse the beats compared to Traktor Pro correct for live drummer. I like this very much.


I think the loop end position is only calculated asuming the beat is constant and not set exact on the live drummer beat.


Also syncing non linear beats of live drummer is not possible. I always have to hit the sync button every beat to keep tracks synced. Djay pro should do this automatically.

Hey Manfred,
If the beats vary on tracks like My 80's funk music played with live drummers.

iMac, Right? Try editing BPM by Tapping @ the Beginning, AND Middle of the Track.
DJay will analyze the track.
Only problem is, Djay doesn't save that info and the track will be screwed up the next time you restart DJay.
This is an ongoing problem for me. Wish this could be fixed.

I do not use Loops because:

- Loops do not snap to the Beats, Bars and Phrases
- I can not move Loops per Beat, Bar or Phrase with a rotary button
- I can not Finetune Loop End and Begin with rotary buton
- I can not save Loops

Hi guys,

quick follow up. We are checking the on-beat loop logic. There are definitely songs which are being looped wrongly.
I will keep you posted.

Cheers,Lukas E.
