Timecode with tempo adjustments

Postby grenno9 » Sat Jul 10, 2021 4:03 pm

I'm looking to create specific light shows for specific tracks in a DJ set using the timeline.

The timeline works great however I'm struggling to come up with a solution for if the DJ plays tracks at a higher/lower tempo than the original file. I.e. if he has the pitch slider at 4%, the track will slowly lose sync with the timeline I have set (using the original track).

I'm not sure of a way to resolve this? I'm new to timecode/timeline so might be missing something but would appreciate any help/advice!

Timecode is following the internal or external timecode. If the incoming timecode is played faster, cues will follow. Doing it manually will take away the function of timecode, then it is not synced anymore.
