Yes. Learn how to actually DJ and use the jog wheel to move the track so it's in sync with the other track playing... then remember to fix the beat grid later in Rekordbox.
Can you Adjust the Beat Grid on the XDJ RX?
I have just upgraded to an XDJ RX from an Aero & was wanting to know if you can adjust the beat grid on the deck if it's not exactly right?
If you can how do you do it please??
Thanks Chris for your half arsed answer!
I have probably been DJing for longer than you have been on this earth!
I work as a DJ in a bar with no DJ booth where you are in the thick of the dance floor action, being asked for request nearly all the time, so remembering which songs are out of sync the next time you start Rekordbox is difficult!
One of the YouTube videos said it could be done, so was asking for advice of if it could be done & how to do it.
I'm glad I took time to ask now with replies like yours!
A simple no sorry it can't be adjusted would of done.
Ya that was a very stupid response to the posters question IMO.....
The grid is also used for the FX etc. I personally find that Rekordbox gets the BPM right for the grid most of the time but it's off by one beat on at least 50% of my tracks so it would be really nice if you could shift the grid over on the RX! .... I'v been doing it in Rekordbox but it would be nice o be able to do a simple shift of the grid at a gig.
Hey Paul! Congrats on the rx. U can also adjust the grids on the unit it self. All u have to do is. The big button on the middle which is your scroll for waveform and searching for music etc. all u have to do is hold it down for one sec. From there it switch to beat grind mode. From there u can adjust your grids an line them up good to the waveform
Thanks Anthony. 👍
Thank you Steven, I thought there was a way to do it but after playing with it for a while couldn't work it out.
Loving the new RX with the only fault being no lock on the playing deck! I really can't see how they missed this off, Denon have had it for years & even the XDJ Aero had it as an option.
Thanks for your help gents.
I remember pulse saying that the engineers are working on a lock on deck. Should be on an firmware soon I think. The unit is hot. Got to play with if it when it came out. Enjoy my friend and hope all goes good!😀
Perfect! Moving the grid works great like this! Wish you could zoom in a little further though to help really line up the grid to perfection.. but still I'm super happy that this can be done directly with the RX, last night I fixed 4 grids live at my gig! One of them I fixed during a mix too! :)
My first gig with the RX last night & I too altered a few grids whilst working. Thanks again to Steven V for the advice 👍.
Glad I wasn't the only one my question has helped.
Thank you @StevenV had same question :)))
Anytime my wonderful people's! Glad to help.
That was also very helpful for me. I originally analyzed all my tracks in dynamic mode since about half of what I play are older tracks with live drummers or vinyl rips. Somewhere on this board I read that's not the best practice, so I re-analysed all my songs in normal mode. probably half of my songs now have the grid off by 1/2 beat. very strange. Can someone direct me to a definitive guide or video describing the best method to analyze and manually adjust the beatgrid on songs that change tempo? Thanks!
@Bill > Don't paint all songs with the same brush. Analyse songs with a live drummer in dynamic mode, analyse songs with a consistent (artificial) beat in normal mode.
Sorry to bring up an old thread...
I've not purchased one yet but would like to know when the beatgrid is manually adjusted as stated above, is the new beatgrid permanetly saved for future use, when the track is reloaded or do you have to change it every time? If that makes sense?!
Hope someone can help.
i've got the XDJ RX so i can tell you that all work you will make on the RX will be saved on the USB stick or hard drive ! In fact, when you change the beatgrid on a track, the next time you will use it it will be ok, you will not have to change again anymore :)
Hope you understand me, i'm french user and i think my english is not really good ^^
