Serato Dj Tutorial on Beat Matching

djMcClaren 3:51 AM - 24 September, 2013
I'm a noobie, getting in djing. I had bought the Numark Mixtrack Pro 2 with Serato Dj Intro. I also bought a Toshiba Laptop with 6 gb of memory and a 650 Hard Drive. I've practicing about three times a week. I'm beat matching by ear, on the other hand, beat matching dancehall music is no problem, when it comes to reggae, sometimes the beats just doesn't beat match correctly. Can someone please tell me what am I doing wrong?

Is there a tutorial on beat matching with Serato Dj Intro? I tried Youtube several times, but cannot find anything on how to beat match with Mixtrack Pro 2 and Serato Dj Intro.
