I want to mix these two tracks,on a computer with a computer mouse but I don't want to use the sync button,I want manually Adjust the bpm on deck A to 130,picht-tempo it's hard for me to set exactly bpm 130.0. above in traktor pro 3 3.8.0 is there i can adjust bmp,I put 130.0 there, but it does not affect the deck,deck A will then show 87 bpm.I need it to work,where I set 130.0 bmp,to change the bpm on the deck.

    It is a right click on the - and + buttons actually.

    When to use the sync button in traktor pro 3 it automatically sets the bpm exactly but it affects the speed of the track, changes the speed of the track, on the DJ consoles in the club when I work, picht fader I put 130.0 there but it doesn't affect the tempo of the track in the deck, superficially changes the bpm on the deck so the tracks sound in sync, but the tempo of the track is the same, the track doesn't play faster or slower then, just the bpm changed. And it works differently in the traktor pro 3 program.

    Sorry, I don´t understand what you want to do..

    Pitch (also called Tempo) faders always change the tempo of a song (on controllers, cdjs, turntables and softwares).

    Do you want to change the bpm value of a song? Then you have to change the beatgrid.

    If you want to use the master bpm (in your picture) disable AUTO and press Sync on deck A. Then all songs (in deck A) will be speed up/down to the set value. (AUTO means it sets the bpm to the track which is playing on master output the longest). Have a look into the manual how the master bpm section works.

    If you want to you pitch fader more precise without a controller, you can map it to buttons on your keyboard.

    Maybe you could explain again what you want to do..

    When these two tracks have the same bpm value they do not diverge, but it sounds terrible, sound synchronously ,then this track Donna Summer - I Feel Love (Moreno J Deeper Love Remix) sounds normal , but it's on deck A, deck A is the master in it bpm didn't change, and the track Deck B El Magnetismo - Lucia Tacchetti accelerates because the bmp has changed from 87 to 130,it sounds bad because it is accelerating,even if I select the bpm so that these two tracks sound normal at this speed, but no, these tracks still sound bad then, but these tracks want me not to touch the bpm at all.How to make these two tracks friends,if you even leave the bpm ,then these tracks sound normal at +0.00% bpm,then they diverge.

    If even on the DJ console you set the value with the tempo fader  from 87 on 130bpm, you will not hear this acceleration, the track sounds normal with such a change in tempo.If you do this in traktor pro 3 with a computer mouse, with the tempo fader you hear the acceleration of this track and it sounds bad then.

    If you increase any track with bpm 87 to bpm 130 it will always sound bad. Either it's pitch increases by more than half an octave, killing basically any low frequencies, or, if you have keylock activated, the sound gets squashed and sounds robotic.

    It may be better to insert a break without any kicks plus some suitable FX and jump manually from one tempo to another. There should be some tutorials on the web how to handle transitions for tracks with vastly different bpm.

    If I  in the settings of the traktor pro 3 program, I set the tempo fader to 2%, then when I move the tempo fader, the track then sounds normal, like on DJ consoles, with such settings with the tempo fader, I can no longer go from 87 to 130 bpm, the tempo fader is already limited. With such tempo fader settings of 4%, the track already sounds terrible.

    You could re-beatgrid the 130bpm song to its half bpm. The way from 65 bpm to 87bpm is not as far as from 130 bpm to 87 bpm.

    Activate keylock, speed up the 65bpm song and slow down the 87 bpm song until both play at 76 bpm. Maybe this works for you.

    who would have guessed that ,that you need to click with the right mouse button under the tempo fader on + and - I still don't know much about traktor pro 3, what's there. Now I will click every millimeter with a computer mouse in traktor pro 3, maybe there are additional advanced settings hidden there that I don't know about.
