Grid going haywire with Lone - Aquamarine

If I shift it later it shifts all the previous beats OFF the beat. Anything I can do or do I just need to manually beatmatch this track?

It is unfortunately a known problem that you can’t fix broken grids in djay; you’re mostly reliant on the grid it produces. You can set a grid marker, like you tried, but if that results in one part of your song being correct and another part incorrect, you’re basically out of luck.

Ah many thanks will add my vote

I just checked this song in djay pro AI for MacOs and it looks like djay analyses it perfectly.
I understand if you misinterpret the waveform since the red waveform representation of the bass drum from bar 9 is hidden visually under a lot of syncopated handclaps and high eq sounds but it’s there. Nothing wrong with djay from in my point of view. If you mix it and it ‘sounds’ good then there’s nothing to worry about. The red offbeat is prolly the synth bass shining through.
You can also make a habit of slowing the song down and clap your hands or count aloud each time the beat marking passes the playhead. If it aligns with the music/bass drum then it’s all good.
Happy mixing!

Thanks! It’s weird cos I had trouble with this track ‘by ear’, not from looking at the waveform. It was a particular section as I recall. :man_shrugging:
