    I’ve gotta get this “on the fly” beat gridding down. Sitting down and trying to beat grid a few hundred tracks in Traktor is shitty. same with Ableton. It kinda takes the “live” aspect out of it all together (both of them). But it makes for an all too perfect performance. Im for it, but whatta time guzzler. If Traktor were an automobile it’d be a H2 HUMMER cuz it guzzle time like those things guzzle gas.

    Are you going to do a beat grid tutorial for Traktor Pro 2 as well?

    • Gjestar

       The top two “grid markers” are moving the beginning grid point forward or backward. The bottom two with the multiple lines are where it changes the entire grid. Map those out when setting everything up after you’ve set your original markers.

    And a question… is there any software that automates this process? (I.e. ignores intros/outros and sets in/out cues & bpm that Traktor recognizes?), then one can go in and fix where necessary…

  • Digi

    I’m with the other two before me!! A Traktor Pro updated Hot Key map would be much appreciated! You make it look so easy! It probably is easier with the hot keys mapped out like that. I can’t seem to figure them out, or how to set them. I can’t seem to get it, but will keep trying.

    Hey Ean,

    A really great video, gave me the pointers for a lot of things I figured out but not all the way through… :-)

    Anyway, after practicing the method a bit, I sat and watched the video again to get the finer points, and this is my question:

    There is a point in the song where you missed the exact correct cue point, and it appears you somehow fixed it without having to actually play and drop the cue again. Is there a way to do that? I find it especially hard when not playing in snap and I sometime want to move my dropped cue just a tiny little bit forward or backward…

    Thanks for your help, it really means alot to all of us out there trying to fumble in the dark!

A normal DJ mixer has this special EQ'ing corrections built in because it's meant to "decode" vinyl… Ever wonder why there is sometimes a switch near the inputs that says phono/line even though they sound similar?

    If you record without this pre-amp correction, you will get a digital recording that has all the wrong frequency emphasis and traktor will have a difficult time deciphering the beats. And even worse, the audio will technically be all wrong. And while it may appear workable at first, it gets way worse in the breakdowns.[/quote]

    Wow! Never knew this, I always thought it was just the level of the signal. I have always plugged my decks into phono so never had chance to hear the difference. Everyday is a school day!!

    Worth mentioning then, though not ideal, is if people don't have any form of pre-amp, mixers included, they can eq the track afterwards with an eq curve the is the negative of the RIAA one. Again, though, this is not ideal.

    [quote comment="15872"]Is there anyone who is making this .tks file for Traktor Pro available?[/quote]

    I'm working on something similar at the moment, but you best off doing it yourself. Firstly you get to define the keys/buttons you want to use yourself and secondly you will begin to understand Traktor more.

    Here is how I've assigned my keys:

    - '[' = Loop In/Set Cue

    - ']' = Store Cue/Loop

    - Shift + ']' = Set Grid Marker

    Loop Size & Set: Int. Mode= Direct; Value= 8

    Monitor Cue: Int. Mode= Direct; Value= On ***

    Beat Tick: Int. Mode= Direct; Value= On

    Show Advanced Panel: Int. Mode: Direct; Value= Grid

    - Ctrl + ']' = Lock BPM: Int. Mode= Toggle

    BPM Tick: Int. Mode= Direct; Value= Off

    - 'P' = Cup (Cue Play): Int. Mode= Hold

    - Shift + 'P' = Cue/Loop Move Mode: Int. Mode= Direct; Vaue= BeatJump

    Cue/Loop Move Size: Int. Mode= Direct; Value= 2

    Cue/Loop Move: Int. Mode= Previous

    - Ctrl + 'P' = Cue/Loop Move Mode: Int. Mode= Direct; Value= BeatJump

    Cue/Loop Move Size: Int. Mode= Direct; Value= 32

    Cue/Loop Move: Int. Mode= Next

    Loop Active: Int. Mode= Direct; Value= off

    - '-' = BPM: Int. Mode= Inc; Res= Min

    - '=' = BPM: Int. Mode= Dec; Res= Min

    - Shift + '-' = BPM: Int. Mode= Inc; Res= Fine

    - Shift + '=' = BPM: Int. Mode= Dec; Res= Fine

    - Ctrl + '-' = Move Grid Marker: Int. Mode: Down; Res= Min

    - Ctrl + '=' = Move Grid Marker: Int. Mode: Up; Res= Min

    How it works:

    1. Load and start a track and focus that deck. Use the '[' key at anytime to drop a temp cue point. If you missed your cue point simple hit 'Shift + P' to jump back 2 beats so that you can drop it again. To hear if you have it in the right spot tap P, don't hold it. This is usefully for beat gridding as you will hear if you've missed the start of the drum hit or not. If it is not spot on don't worry about trying the above steps to get it perfect.

    2. Once you happy with your temp cue HOLD down the P key, which will keep the play head on it, then hit 'Shift + ]'. This will place a beat grid marker and also set a loop and activate the tick. When you release the keys and track continues playing you will be able to hear how far off, if at all, you original temp cue was. Tidy it up by usin CTRL + '-' or '=' to move the beat grid so that the ticks fall on the right spot.

    3. When the tick is lined up, hit CTRL + P to skip forward and end the loop. To adjust the BPM use the '-' and '=' keys (looks more like – & + when you look at the keyboard) to fine tune the BPM, using shift as well to make bigger changes. Please note the it is impossible to make minute changes using the keyboard so you may have to grab the mouse to make changes of 0.001. Once you've got the BPM hit CTRL + ] to lock the grid and turn off the tick.

    4. To place other cues, use the method in step 1 and the Hold P and press ] to store a cue point.

    Hope that makes sense ;)

    *** I've included this as I'm using an external mixer and it has to be switched on to hear the tick. You might not need this for n internal mixer but have tried it out.

WTF!!?!?

  • 8-bit

    Now this may sound like a crazy tip for songs that seem difficult to beat-grid, but I've experienced this myself and it can seriously affect how well traktor can read all the beats. Make sure that when you are ripping your records that you are recording through a phono pre-amp, like your normal DJ mixer, before going into your sound card input. Do not rip your records by just connecting your turntable directly to your sound card input, no matter how much you think that it sounds ok and appears to get decent levels. The reason the phono level pre-amp is needed is because records are recorded with special EQ'ing that a phono pre-amp, or more correctly RIAA pre-amp, corrects for. A normal DJ mixer has this special EQ'ing corrections built in because it's meant to "decode" vinyl… Ever wonder why there is sometimes a switch near the inputs that says phono/line even though they sound similar?

    If you record without this pre-amp correction, you will get a digital recording that has all the wrong frequency emphasis and traktor will have a difficult time deciphering the beats. And even worse, the audio will technically be all wrong. And while it may appear workable at first, it gets way worse in the breakdowns.

    Ean,

    I don't know if I'm just messing it up or you posted somewhere else on how to do this, but when setting up my traktor for easy beat grid mapping, I tried using separate pages in traktor so I could assign the my Korg padKONTROL to beat grid on page 4 and have normal operation in page 1-3. For some reason, I can assign midi controls in page 1, but not in 2-4, for my VCI-100 or the Korg. Is there a way to do map it like that, or can you only assign one midi note per control, and if so, why do they have multiple assignments for each separate page?

  • Ryan Catcher

    hey ean,

    so i got my tracks beat gridded and saved.

    but when i rename the tracks the beatgrid info gets lost…

    the reason i rename the files is because i have a format for my files, to keep track of bpms outside of traktor -

    ARTIST – SONG TITLE (REMIX) – BPM.mp3

    the thing is i renamed a file because the BPM was incorrect and thus lost the beatgrid and cue points… are there any work arounds to this, or should i try and not rename my files after i beatgrid them….

    thanks,

    _ if you right click and choose write to tags then yes, its written to your mp3. that TKs is broken- the assigments are all there but the values will not work in anything before 3.4 because of incompatibility. Just use the guidelines in the article and re-assign them.

  • aiden

    the tks is still helpful, becuz it loads the right directives into your hotkeys and then u just need to assign them.

    wondering if it would be possible to convert ableton asd files to traktor beatgrids.. perhaps an interesting concept since the ableton approach to warp makers is much easier for a simple man like me to grasp :)

    ahh, kinda like beat-warping in ableton. How necessary is this? I can ride the pitch on any odd tracks.. i guess, if u are really getting creative u need that insurance.

    so it is impossible to beatgrid the whole song.

    I know there is warping in Ableton Live,But do you know An alternative and more simple Solution?

    Drop more breat grids. find where the beat goes off and drop another one. This will not do any good if the tempo is slowly going off or changing constantly but i the problem is a sudden shift or jump in the grid then a 2nd beat marker will fix that.

    I Tried up to 8 gridmarkers, but it didnt work.

    I found out that I have 3 behaviours of vinyl recordings.

    -Songs that are OK

    -songs that are beatgridded in the beginning,the middle of the song then goes out of sync,at the end(4/5minutes)They come back in sync.

    -songs that are beatgridded for about 3 minutes and then go out of sync.

    So the tempo is slowly going off on behaviour 2&3,

    Do You have any Sugestions how to solve this in an easy way?

    +/-5000 records are waiting to be recorded:)

    HI Ean,

    Great Video..

    Almost the way I do it.

    But I have a problem.

    I Started ripping my vinyl and some tracks did very well with beatgridding,

    but some did not.Mostly the first 3 minutes of a song are good to handle,

    but after that a very slow bpm change takes place (My Turntable is correct, because some some songs with a length of 8 minutes where perfect),

    so it is impossible to beatgrid the whole song.

    I know there is warping in Ableton Live,But do you know An alternative and more simple Solution?

    Cheers,

    Thanks for for positive feedback guys, now that the VCI-100SE is done I can focus on making more videos.

    There is actually a really good reason to put the beat marker on the snare if you want Trakotr to sync 2 songs up to each others grids. It has to do with the music production itself. If you sync 2 songs up by their snares then chances are that they will be in sync 99 percent of the time because snares always fall in a consistent rhythmic pattern that has very little swing.

    However if you use the first beat in the song (a kick) these vary greatly between songs. Some producers push their kicks forward some let them fall back. Some kicks have a small pre-kick that precedes the actual one.

    This principle also applies to beat griding in ableton.

  • Miyuru

    I think Ean chose the snare because it's sharper and more defined than a downbeat, hence it would be more accurate in the end.

    Regardless, you can always increase/decrease the BPM as shown, so I don't think it would matter much. Probably just personal preference I'm guessing.

  • http://www.ome-les.com tekki

    Thanks! Nice tuto…

    (It helps that my name showed twice while showing the forum. ;) )

  • lewdlesion

    Great video Ean, and thanks for the time on cue placement.

    I'm confused though.

    Doesn't a measure usualy begin on the downbeat (what would have been the first beat in the waveform of your video), not the snare? I realize you can lay your beatgrid cue anywhere you want, but doesn't that also tell Traktor that is the first beat of the first measure?

    I'm still trying to grasp music theory, please correct me if I'm all screwd up.

    I don't get why you prefer putting the beatmarker on a snare. Is it OK if I put it on the second beat? What's the difference? Could it change Traktor's behavior when using synced FX or simply the Sync button?

    it does not make sense to me that you're moving the grid. You say "we need to adjust the tempo" and "use the 'move grid right' key" BUT that is supposed to change where your beat marker is, not the tempo! That MAY align the grid later in the song, but it would move the initial beat marker away from the snare. You change your BPM from 103 to 102.7 and then to 102.8 and you say you're using the 'move grid right' key – it seems to me that you are actually using the 'track BPM decrement fine" key, no?

    The only commands I am using are Track BPM increment/decrement fine and coarse.

    I reversed them on the keyboard so it behaves like they are "moving the grid" in a logical direction, which is the easiest way to describe them in a tutorial setting. The ) button is BPM Decrement which moves the grid to the right ->

    the ( button is BPM increment which moves the grid to the left.

    The command your confusing my dialog with is shift beat marker command which does move the entire grid in place.

    And Yes, that subliminal marketing was rather nice was it not ;-) Completely accidental export error actually. Random.

    Hey, Ian, I see you've got your Key (11B) there on the info panel – which ID3 field do you write the tag in?

    Never mind, I watched the video through the end. As far as I know, Traktor will not write a tag to a song that's loaded into a deck. Thus, you will have to either unload the song or load something else into the deck and then write the tags.

    Also, it does not make sense to me that you're moving the grid. You say "we need to adjust the tempo" and "use the 'move grid right' key" BUT that is supposed to change where your beat marker is, not the tempo! That MAY align the grid later in the song, but it would move the initial beat marker away from the snare. You change your BPM from 103 to 102.7 and then to 102.8 and you say you're using the 'move grid right' key – it seems to me that you are actually using the 'track BPM decrement fine" key, no?

    Hey, Ian, I see you've got your Key (11B) there on the info panel – which ID3 field do you write the tag in?
