Serato Vs Cross - A no brainer

Postby Activated Soundwave on 17 Feb 2017, 15:55

I decided I was going to have to use Serato until my controller gets mapped for Cross, what a bad idea that was,
I beat grid analysed my songs/tracks In serato, and I got shocking results from songs/tracks, a majority of this stuff I analysed had very rigid timing, Trance and Progressive and in Cross it got the vast majority correct. Yet after transferring a playlist over to serato the timing and analysis was horrendous, and it was even difficult if not impossible to manually set some of these that should have been oh so simple. analysis in serato in Catching the downbeat is often off and their is no reason really.

Also the it would often get the BPM/speed wrong and it was very difficult to manually sort these, On times serato will suffice, although I guarantee you too would also see a big difference, its not until you study the tracks in Cross and then compare in Serato that you realise how shocking Serato is at analysis, nothings perfect all the time, never the less :
"Shocking shocking shocking" Serato.
I guess in Cross we must trust ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) :biggrin:

Setup problem maybe, but in this case apart from the variations in the analysis ranges, I can not see what else it could be, I tried the two ranges that had the most baring on the Genre and still I could not Get the desired/ expected results, yet in Cross it was much more accurate by no means perfect all the time but still quite noticed compared with each other.

Thanks for your input djreff, I will not rule out any setup issue, but I did feel everything is as it should be setup wise.
It would be good by way of experiments if others could do some set list A/B comparisons out of curiosity ?

I am going to have to sort out a screen capture software, as In general I need to start being able to back up my finds, it would help alround to solve such things, and help keep debate on a even keel so to speak.
