Move Beat from Off-Beat to On-Beat


is there a possibility so “move” a matched beat. The tempo is perfectly fine, but the 1 is not on the 1.

This is very very frustrating. Even manually tried moving it incrementally back to the red line, but the green continues to “Jump” back to Beat 2. Ugh!

No way to make it “stay” on Beat 1. So you can’t click SYNC ever because it throws everything into chaos

by the way version 2.0.3 still does not fix this problem.

Anyone have a workaround? this is an epic mess for sure.

I actually posted this in a different place but this might help some of you in the area too so here goes:

My business partner and I think we know why this program “jump ahead a whole measure” when “clicking SYNC “ to start playing so it starts in SYNC rather than jumping ahead which is what happens sometimes for no apparent reason. We think we know why …

On songs where the first Beat is cropped ever so slightly short it jumps one full measure ahead.

if every Beat is say 479, 479, 479, etc but the distance from Beat 1 to Beat 2 in the first measure is 476 instead - even with the green down beat set… clicking SYNC to start playing in SYNC makes the song jump ahead one full measure.

The only way to know which ones will do this is to tear EVERY SINGLE SONG before playing it live.

  1. Click SYNC one to sync BPM
  2. Click SYNC again to start the song (fader off!!)
  3. Only then will you know if THIS song has a full sized clean downbeat

Since Razormaid! is a DJ remixing service we can fix this since we have the original masters but for those who don’t have access to the master tapes here’s a way around this

One only way to fix this is to:

  1. “add” blank space to the front of the affected song,
  2. copy and paste a new “Beat 1” and replace it.
  3. Then try to load the new version and try the above SYNC SUNC process again

Don’t forget to copy and paste your cue point exit (crossfade) as changing the name or dropping a new version of the song with a new title means needing a new cue point exit too!! Just enter the cue point time on a piece of paper first or leave the old file in until you add it to the new file

There’s just one problem with this correction technique/ there’s not always a clean downbeat available especially if it’s got a cymbal crash on the first Beat, etc you may have to get creative.

Hope this helps.

In DJay Pro 2 it appears you can roll back before the beaT. If this is correct you can try set your green downbeat marker BEFORE the beat. If this works this will solve the “jump to the second measure” problem when starting clean using SYNC
