I'm coming from traktor and I'm very happy with the software so far. But there is a feature I'm really missing: The "beats to cue"-feature from traktor. I don't understand why serato hasn't integrated this feature already, because it's relly helpfull for long transitions with a big drop at the end.
It shouldn't be that hard to implement a counter that is counting the bars backwards to the next cue-point. At least it should be possible to stick notes to the waveforms. (not cue points - just comments) So you can mark vocals, special parts or in my case the point 32/64 bars before the next cue point.
If that feature is implemented, many traktor users would finally switch to serato I guess. At least that's my reasyn to switch baack to traktor from time to time. (Depends of the style of music I'm playing)
I would really appreciate to see one of this features in 2.0.0!
Considering most music is so structured these days, I'd have thought it's rather easy to identify 64/32 bars before a point.
As a workaround though- you know cuepoints can be named? I Know it won't show on the waveform in text, but if you identify the cue coming up (and the color of the spinning deck will lead that in) you can check the point you've set in the cue text.
