How to import only beatgrids from a DJ app?

You can use Lexicon to import beatgrids or key from any DJ app. This is great if you prefer the beatgrids or keys from a specific DJ app. For example, Traktor has one of the best beatgrid analyzers so you can import those beatgrids into Lexicon.

Here's how to do that. We'll use Traktor for this guide.

  1. Create a playlist to send your tracks to Traktor, let's call it To Analyze

  1. Add all the tracks you want to analyze in the new playlist
