Forum: Wishes and new features

Post here the features you would like to see developed in VirtualDJ in the future.
Topic: Warp feature (like Ableton or Mixmeister Fusion)
On my wish list:

The ability to warp a track through the bpm editor like you can in Ableton or Mixmeister. More specifically, I'd love to hit a tap button that places a marker throughout the song, then adjusts the time/distance between the markers so you don't have bpm drift and can turn a live drummer song with a drifting beat into one that's easily mixable and with an accurate cbg.

It may fit better in the track cleaner, since it's not something that should (could?) be done while the track is playing, but instead will result in a in a new changed audio file with a perfectly aligned beat.
That's kind of the same as with the other track cleaner functions, which create a new VDJ-edit file (with it's own icon) that you then load and play instead of the original file (for the current functions it's just an xml-file full of info, but still a new file)
So the result would be a bit like this:

People (including me) have been wishing for this for at least seven years!

Just an idea here, i'm about 150 miles from my machine to test, maybe some one else could try.

If you gridded a track manually and say it's calculated bpm is 100bpm. You could have a rsi script check the current bpm (as per the cbg)

Can't remember the exact but I think you can query and set playback tempo with pitch,
Something like

repeat_start_instant 'rsiPitchRider' 33ms & pitch 100 bpm ? nothing : pitch 100 bpm

I'm honestly not sure if that script will work.
You could test with any tune and set the rsi running and give the pitch a push to test,
I'm not sure of the results either.

I have a feeling that RPM (by Gizmolabs - what was previously PCDJ Reflex) synced tracks by automatically nudging the pitch of one up or down to match the other (or master clock). It worked well because with key lock on, you never knew it was happening.

Obviously real warping would be better, because it's so tweakable, but pitch nudging would be a step in the right direction.

If only one of the 2 tracks has a variable beat grid you could match it to a fixed grid track with beat lock

ANd as another save option the option to overwrite the original file.

I too would love this feature.

A lot of songs from the 70's or 80's go way out of sync and this would be a god send.

However, if I find a track I like to play, I use a looped beat on one deck and play the track on the other. I manually speed up or slow down on the jog wheels to keep the beats in time with the looped on. I record this as a new wav /mp3 and when imported it is good to play and sync.

Not ideal, but it works for me :P
