2 of the same songs will play in sync, and not free.
If you wanna do the Loop-Grid-Grain-Trick, you won’t with DjayPro. Because if you press Play on Deck 2 while Deck 1 playing the same song, Deck 2 will sync Deck 1, destroying your artistic expression.
Hello @SirHannes, can you please explain what the “Loop-Grid-Grain-Trick” is?
- There are some Sync options which should help under Settings>General>SYNC MODE>Sync Type. You probably want to change this to BPM only. This allows you to sync the tempos without locking the beats together.
- Please also note that if you use the BPM and Beats sync type and load the same song onto 2 decks with sync enabled, djay treats these as Instant Doubles. This means it will BPM lock and exact phrase lock them together. This is intentional.
- So, if you want to play the same song on 2 decks, but not have them phrase locked together you either need to disable sync or change the sync type setting to BPM only.
Uff, wow, I read the manual back in the days, but this is new to me. And it’s tremendous important.
Thank you @Slak_Jaw Algoriddim did really well to hire you. Your help is highly appreciated! - How are your programming skills - you’re so fast you could bump that company to a new level in updates, bugfixes and bring customers
It’s more a technique then a trick, sorry for my wording. A build up you do with changing the Loop-length from normal to tiny (grains), plus Reverb, pressing Cue with the setting tape-stop (or so, to get that pitch-slow-down). Then you continue the same track - and everyone is screaming
Workaround is the use of a Cue-Point but I prefer to have it on a 2nd track. If you forget deactivate the reverb, the whole impact is over and lost in the mud and your efforts for the dust bin.
You’re very welcome @SirHannes. Hahaaa! Glad I was able to help! Thanks for the technique explanation - I’m familiar with it, just never heard it worded that way before.
