I use Traktor as my master library, as I use timecodes on my 1210s, but also have my denons. My workflow is that I build any playlists or sets in Traktor and then each time I add some new tunes or playlists I will remove the crate and playlists from Engine Prime, then refresh my Traktor library in Engine Prime, then re-add my whole library as a crate, then the playlists as playlists. This works great and is pretty quick so not too much of a pain, though I noticed I need to - re-analyse the whole library every time this happens as the waveforms disappear. Not a problem but would be nice if I could just re-sync to the refreshed traktor library rather than having to delete and re-add everything.
Anyway, the problem is that when I do this, 95% of tunes without a problem, but then when I go and play on the SC5000s I thought I was going mad as some tunes read right on the BPM but were fast or slow in my ear. I realised after a while that it’s ALWAYS 1bpm wrong up or down, so I’ve now learned to compensate quickly if I hear something running out, but it is REALLY annoying as it’s hard to ignore the bpm when it’s so big on the screen but I can’t trust it. Every time I now make a set list I have to line up traktor vs engine prime and look through each and every tune to check the bpm of one against the other and manually edit the wrong ones so I don’t get tricked. This is obviously a bug but has been in the software for a long time now, I was hoping it would be fixed with 1.5.0 but doesn’t seem to have happened.
Does anyone else get this? Is there a fix? I tried re-analysing the tunes but no change. For info this happens both on house 130ish bpm and drum & bass 174ish in equal amounts.
