How to beatmatch...
Topic: How to beatmatch easily with VDJ please?
So please bear with me a little as i go in baby steps to try to do things accurately with this software, I am also looking at the manual. So I analyze all tunes in the browser/playlist, I click the BPM button to set in ascending order. I load first track in deck A which is 83 bpm then load a 2nd track in deck B which is 85. Do I first locate the downbeat on deck B's tune and set it at the middle line in the waveform or first hit the sync button on deck B to match it's bpm to track on deck A please?

When cueing the incoming track, find a suitable beat and set a cue point there. Then at the right time, start it playing. Unlike vinyl there's no ramp up time, and no need to push.

You don't have to "use the blocks" or the waveform to mix. Remember how you mixed with vinyl? No blocks, no wave form, and yet you still did it!
Just because it's there, you're not forced to use it. It's a tool, a guide, not an essential thing.
The blocks represent the beat grid (which is placed by VDJ when the track is analysed). If it's not in the right place, it can be adjusted using the editor.
By the way, read the manual! :-)
