How to trick QuickGrid's BPM detection/Beat Grids [v2.0] A *slightly* easier way than the previous one!

Next, to adjust the beat grid, simply make a 4/4 drum loop longer than your tune, at the correct BPM. Analyse it with Quickgrid, load it onto your USB and use QuickGrid to prepare the USB for use. Now you can open the file "hashes.dat" to check it's "analysis_hash" and find the folder the analysis files are stored in on the USB drive. Simply take the xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.sar file, and use it to replace the incorrect one your mp3 has (paste it into the badly analyzed mp3's analysis folder and change the filename to match it, deleting the original one). You'll be missing the "cover view" wave, but the beat grid will be correct to your new BPM.
The cool thing about doing it this way is, once you have for example a 125BPM beat grid analyzed, it can be re-used for any 125BPM tunes that get badly analyzed, so long as it's longer than the tune you're fixing. So I'm making all of mine around 10mins to be safe.
Now if only QuickGrid could show the waveform/beat grid it creates, and allow adjusting of it! From this little experiment I know that it's quite easily possible. Come on Stanton!

Was actually thinking that too, I'll give it a try...have a feeling it won't work though, as it wouldn't analyse anything under say 30 seconds or something, so reckon it'd go with the longer portion of a tune for setting the BPM/grid. Only one way to find out though!

This is definitely kool ! let's hope this workaround will correct all problem tracks.

there is a video proving that BPM editing via tap or dial does not work
maybe i bought a damaged scs4dj or something but THEY DO NOT WORK as clearly shown in the video
Ok I see the problem and I will check this on my scs tomorrow because now its in the club.
