    You have to warp each track you import, Berger. As in, you have to mark each down beat.

    There are tons of youtube tut's which is how I learned.

    Yeah other than live drummer based tracks or bad edits you should be done in under a minute per track really.

    some older vinyl recordings can be a bit tricky too but for a newish track with no glitches its a minute job definitly.

    thats exactly what i do. once you learn what the transients look like you'll be doing a full track in a minute with a marker on every bar.

    Actually after spending a couple of weeks with 8 now I'm preferring the new system didn't like it all to begin with though.

    I barely need to use markers except on some vinyl rips.
    Just rght click on first beat and then warp from here
    occasionally need to go to a bar near the end and drag it back in line, but that`s all.

    Occasionally the tougher buggers might need a warp marker here and there.

    I read a brilliant article in Future Music, I think, a few years ago explaining how to set Live up for DJ'ing, aimed at someone who'd never used it before at all. I'll scan it up if you like? It's obviously for a an earlier version, 5 or 6 perhaps, but still pretty relevant.
