Please tell me there is a way of deleting a cue/loop point on a locked (beat gridded) track! I have 5 cue buttons mapped to my controller, but say I load a track that has been locked that only has 2 cue points mapped and I hit cue button number 3 by mistake, I want to be able to delete that cue point on the fly. It doesn't seem to work when the track is locked. I have to unlock the track, delete the cue point then re lock the track. Highly impractical!
Is there something I'm missing?
Thanks for the pics, I see what the problem is, I didnt put "set to value" as what ever hot cue I need it to delete. BUT, this doesn't help. Say I only have 2 hot cues mapped to one particular track and by mistake I hit the "hot cue 3" button, I'd have to have 5 buttons assigned to delete the right one, as opposed to the one button that deletes the last one I made. Not helpful at all as that would be 5 buttons wasted for each deck, thats far too many! I could have sworn that on my PC it worked with just one button. I know for a fact I only had one button assigned to delete any hot cue I made by mistake with no issues. The only thing I can think of is that maybe this was before I had any beat gridding done and I was mixing 'out of the box' without any locked tracks. But I'm pretty damn sure I wouldnt have assigned a "delete hot cue" button if I didnt have any cue points which I would only have made once I had my tracks gridded up. I know for a fact I would have only assigned the delete button once I ran into the problem of making cue points by mistake, and I only put cue points on locked tracks!
My (don't know bout any body else) delete cue/loop don't work how it use to in earlier versions. I have to have my tracks unlock for it to work the same. That's what you are talking bout, NI change that behavior, why I don't know and I ain't ask or asking, you can ask them or request they change it back.
I mapped 8 buttons as you can see, it's better than clicking (1) grid, (2) lock, (3) the cue to delete, (4) then the trash can or mapped button delete cue/loop, (5) lock again.
Or mapping it all out.
Only you can decide how want & going to use traktor. What you want & don't want map. Make life easier or harder.
Right, there is definitely something going on here. It's now looking to me like Mac's do one thing and PC's do another. My pal came round my house with his laptop and Traktor Pro. I tested this issue on his computer and yes, you can delete a hot cue you just made if the track is locked. I'm on Mac, he's on PC. I took a locked track on his laptop, put it into deck A, made a hot cue, then deleted it with the rubbish bin icon. SO... the only thing I can think of is the Mac PC difference. Or possibly NI might have changed this operation in the latest update, as my pal hasn't updated his software to the current update yet but I had to due to being on OSX snow leopard.
Can someone do me a huge favour and if you're on PC can you see if you can delete a hot cue you just made using the trash can icon on a locked track.
