Matching the 4...
Topic: Matching the 4 beat help
I've tried to use the mouse to select one of the 4 beats to match the current playing deck but its hit and miss, -its very hard to get it to be playing at the same 4 beat. Are they any suggestions please.
Also, Im loving the sampler sidebar, are there anymore that can be downloaded?
Thanks, Virtual D.J. is awesome!

You need to use your ears. Listen to each track and it should become clear where the one is. In many cases, when the drums start on a track, they usually start "on the one".
Samples can be downloaded from the addons area - click 'download' then 'addons'.

I mean't in the 4 bar graphic at the top, before I have brought in the 2nd track via the crossfader, Im finding it hard to use the mouse to press e.g. beat 1 exactly when the currently playing track is at beat 1.

It seems to me that you may need to read up (or watch some videos) on beats and bars in music, and how that relates to mixing.

Is this not correct?

The first beat of the bar is commonly called "the one" and when mixing, you'd normally bring a track in "on the one" - when the track already playing reaches a "one". That way they'd be in sync - they'd both be going 1,2,3,4 instead of one being 1,2,3,4 and the other being 2,3,4,1 (for example).
As I say, read up on it. Learn the correct terminology.

But it comes back to my original question, when using VJ, how do I start a record such that it begins at "the one"
I understand if your getting fedup.

There are exceptions, but far fewer. For example the synth riff at the beginning of Ain't Nobody (Rufus & Chaka Khan) starts on the two - the second beat of the bar. It's not immediately obvious but when the drums kick in, it becomes so.

Im trying to work out how to start the 2nd deck on beat 1. I have just observed that I can start the record anywhere, and stop it so its on the 1st beat. Then when the playing track is on the 1st beat, I can press play on the 2nd deck, but sometimes there is a lag and by the time it has started, the playing deck is on the 2nd beat.

Your computer is fast enough
You have a professional low latency audio interface
To be honest, even with an old computer and a bog standard built-in sound card, there shouldn't be a lag to that extent.

deck 1 goto +1
Where you said it could be made tp be Generic by removing the deck 1, this moves the current deck, is there a way to NOT this so it does the deck which is trying to be mixed in (i.e. cross fader not pointing to)?
