Underused Beat Jump
Imagine throwing on a new track in the middle of your set, but you aren’t sure where to mix it in seamlessly. You have to scrub back and forth through the track to find the right spot, then worry about how far back you need to bring the track to give you enough time to mix in. In the heat of a set, having to go through those steps can take you out of the moment and ruin your groove. Beat jump can simplify this process and make it feel effortless.
Beat jump allows you to skip forward or backward through a track on beat, based on the beat grid. The on beat part is what makes this feature a game changer. With a few clicks of the mouse you can find the part of a track you are looking for and not worry about phrasing.
Currently beat jump or something similar is available in:
- Traktor Pro
- Rekordbox DJ
- Serato DJ
- Pioneer DJ’s XDJ-1000 (MK1/2) and CDJ-2000NXS2
