What is the feature or ability you would like to have? The beat detection on Engine Prime is okay for the most part, but it struggles fairly often. This is all well and good since you can manually fix it, but searching for the correct bpm of a track you don’t know the bpm of involves a lot of guessing and moving of the grid. This is made worse by the fact that the beat grid seems to be anchored by the very beginning of the track, rather than a downbeat you can set yourself.
How will this feature help you and others?
here’s a usecase scenario:
you’re at the first drop and aligned the red grid to the start of the kick.
you play the song a bit and eventually see that the beat grid is too fast.
you guess a lower bpm but now the beatgrid isn’t aligned to the first kick anymore so you have to manually move it.
this is pretty common for old-ish house tunes where the correct bpm is like 125.370 lol, but it’d also be useful when producers deviate from usual bpms (for example, dubstep in 145bpm or the many slower 115-127bpm house tunes)
Is this feature available in an existing product? If so, what product? don’t know
Does a workaround currently exist? see scenario
How often would you use this feature? every time auto detection doesn’t work, which we can all agree isn’t rare
Is there any additional information you’d like to add?
