what confuses me is:
When i turn off auto analysis, and then drop the tracks into engine like shown in the video, engine prime and/or my sc6000 does not have a beatgrid info yet and therefore loading time is increased.
Is there a way to keep the MIK data like key, tempo etc but tell engine prime to just analyze the beat grid?
Maybe there is a difference between re-analyze and analyze track?
I also have seen people here describing a workflow on how to use MIK -> Serato -> Engine (Does Engine prime support Mixed in Key app?) to even geht cue points as well, which would be fantastic but I still want to perpare tracks including having a beatgrid before loading it to my sc6000.
The way described (think it was me that put it that way), you need to do Serato first and third, MIK in between, and Prime last, but it’ll overwrite the key, so then have to do MIK again and reimport track info. That’s if you want the cue points. If you just want beat grid and key, just whack through Prime first, open MIK and drag onto MIK from prime, reimport track info. All sorted as you want it to be.
I wish I knew, it was MIK that gave me this workflow; it’s something to do with the Serato cues not being able to be written in Aiff’s (actually if you’re using mp3s it doesn’t matter but I try to always use better quality files), perhaps it needs to create something in the file first?
