Analyzing Files

Analyze files prepares the waveform overviews, detects file corruption, and if enabled, calculates the Key/BPM values and creates Beatgrids. Analyzing files in Serato DJ ensures that your songs are ready for you when you need to use them, and reduces CPU load when DJing. We recommend you analyze songs as they are added to your library for best performance.

NOTE: When hardware is connected, Set Beatgrid/BPM options are in effect. Keep these checked in the offline player if you wish to have new tracks analyzed with these values when dragging files to a deck.

NOTE: If you have files you don’t want to analyze, you can Lock tracks

SEE LOCK TRACKS FOR MORE INFORMATION.
