THE BEAT POSITION INDICATOR WILL ILLUMINATE GOLD WHEN IN TEMPO SYNC.
Tempo Sync is when the deck tempo will match decks in Sync mode, but the track’s position in the Bar will not be locked as with Beat Sync.
Adjusting the platter or playhead while a track has Sync engaged will disable Beat Sync and put you into Tempo Sync. This allows you to keep tracks at the same tempo but drop the track when desired without it snapping to the beat.
Adjusting the platter will create an offset, this offset will be maintained, even if the track’s Beatgrid changes (ie. a Beat Warp Marker is placed and the track’s tempo changes). This will allow the track to warp around tempo changes without losing Tempo Sync.
You can adjust the position of tracks in the bar, manipulate the platter, scratch or juggle the track while still keeping the tracks’ tempo matching. i.e. If you drop a track out by exactly 2 beats behind a track on another deck in sync, then the yellow Sync state will continue to stay at the same tempo as the other synced track.
