Cross Dj

[Features] Difference between MT (Mastertempo) and Hybrid
Master Tempo tries to keep the pitch, no matter how much you change the speed. This leads into weird sound effects with bigger changes of speed.

Quantize locks the grids of all running « slave“ players (even samplers) with the grid of the master.

Snap optimizes your timing by locking your actions (for example: loops, some effects like « roll“) to the significant divisors of the beatgrid. If the divisor is set to « 1“ it locks right on the grid bars. If it is set to « 1/2“ it set on the grid bars or in the middle between.
