Matching BPM

How do I get the BPM to match the song or samples I have made in Maschine, using MK3, to stay the same in Traktor Pro 3, after I have analyzed them? I have everything synced, but cant seem to figure this out. The BPM doesn't match the setting I set in Maschine.....ever.😡

Thanks for any responses.😊

Native Instruments S5, Kontrol F1, Maschine MK3, Kontrol A49

    How do you sync? With Ableton Link?

    Link should allow to change BPM on any of the connected programs and having the changement mirrored on all the others.

    Or are you moving the Maschine created material inside of Traktor?

    Can you share a screenshot of the analyzed beatgrid inside traktor?

    So: my first idea, but maybe too simplistic, is that you are doing something wrong with the sync/master buttons. Are you sure the master track for sync is the one where you put the song or loops created in Maschine? Otherwise they will be synced with the tempo of the master track in Traktor

    I think he drag 'n drop bars from Maschin into Traktor. And the analyzed file does not match the bpm it has in Maschine.

    Keep in mind samples need to have a definite beat to get the correct bpm.

    For instance a vocal or a oneshot will almost always be detected incorrectly because bpm is calculated by beats per minute.

    So you need to set the bpm and the length of each sample in Maschine to match exactly what you intend to use in Traktor. Then if it is incorrect change it per sample.

    Also keep in mind if there is silence at the start of the sample (such as offset bass or hats Traktor will start the sample incorrectly and the length might be wrong too.

    It can be kind of tricky to get it all working. And a learning curve. Some audio production skills also help alot.

    Oh also set the bpm of the whole remix set to the same as you exported from Maschine.

    Other adjustments in Traktor like start marker and length and the oneshot or latching can also be used to make some samples work more as you might intend them to.

    Drop them into the Track Deck first to analize samples. THen drag and drop into remix deck cell.
