I am not that skilled in beat-matching (yet). When I use Denon ny MC4000 (with Algoriddim DJay), 95% of mix with Sync worked very fine! With Prime 4 it is “5%”, no matter how many times I press Sync on both playing songs. Is there something in the setup of Prime, I need to do, so I can get it to 95%? Or other ideas (beside, start training ;-))? Thank you!
Make sure the beat grid is correct or it will definitely be wrong. And yes, start training
Prime also gives you options to beat match to Bar, Beat and a third one I can’t remember
The third one is only sync tempo, no beat or bar.
That makes sense.
I think like a lot of people, I just tried each setting for a while, worked out the one that worked best for me and my style of mixing and my style of music and stuck with that option, locked in on the players
The grid must be good from both the songs. And then select the sync button from the song/bpm you want to use. And then select the other sync button. So both are selected now. And then the beatmatching will be fine.
That’s the problem if you’re relying on sync - getting the grid good enough. Engine Prime is better than it was at the task but still not perfect. Very little software is. Best to learn how to adjust manually.
Match the bpms with the pitch slider and go from there. I find Engine does a good job with the music I play old skool house, house, funk. Haven’t tried with other flavours such as DnB.
