Tracks without Beatgrids need to be Analyzed before a Beatgrid is created.
TIP: For new tracks that haven’t been analyzed you can alternatively load a track to a virtual deck and Serato DJ will add a Beatgrid. The ‘Set Beatgrid’ option will need to have been selected in the Offline Player.
NOTE: Analyzing tracks may take some time. It is recommended you do this prior to a gig. A track’s Beatgrid is made up of several parts:
All Bar Markers have a number next to them, which references the bar number, starting at 1 (the Downbeat Marker). Each bar is then divided into 4 beats, with 3 small white markers to indicate beat divisions within each bar.
