    I know lots of people on here recommend the Axis 9, so I guess lots of people have them.

    The BPM counter can be quite good but is there anyway to enter the BPM manually, I know you can tap the BPM but that's not very accurate.

    Basically, I've got a tune that I know is 175 BPM (87.5) (CDJ says its 87.3) so can I edit it so it knows that it is 87.5, because at the moment, the fx such as echo are just a little out of sync and sound like bad beatmatching.

    I've been through the manual, but can't find anything about it.

    Cheers

    Why don't you just move the pitch so it says 87.5? I dont quite understand what your tring to achieve.

    soz, i didn't explain it that well.

    some of the fx are bpm based, for example, the echo.

    if the bpm was right then the echoes would be on the beat of the song,
    but if the CDJ thinks the bpm is slightly faster than it really is,
    then the echo will be just before the real beat,
    so if you were echoing a kick, then the echo of the kick would hit just before the real kick in the track,
    and it sounds out of time.
    whatever you shift the pitch to it will just do the same

    Its not a big problem, but it just got annoying when I add fx and it made my mixes sound out of time.
