Hello everyone

I have a question: Can I rely on Traktor Pro's analytics feature? Does the software always analyze my music correctly? So the software always sets the beatgrid correctly and always sets the BPM value correctly? And is the key value always correct? If not, how can I check this and get a reference and check if it is correct?

Thank you for the answers!

    No, you can't. No Software im aware of can do that perfectly.

    For the grid you can either look at it and the waveform or listen to it and active the metronome.

    For the downbeat you need to listen yourself.

    Traktor is roughly 80% right when it comes to key. Which makes it one of the better dj software. You can pump it up with mixed in keys to 90%ish. Or learn how to hear it yourself.

    If the BPM is wrong, the grid will be wrong. (Unless it's half/double bpm)

    Maybe try to find some beginner tutorials. There are plenty on youtube.

    The manual of traktor is also pretty detailed.

    where does the Beatgrid begin? And how do you know how high the BPM really is? And how do I hear which key value it is?

    Always? No. Usually? Yes. Traktor's key and BPM detection is usually regarded as the best of any DJ software
