How to edit a large file and upload it in parts to YouTube using trakAxPC Pro

In my first tips and trick video. I show you how I edit a large file ( 60 minutes) into smaller parts (10 minutes - the maximum lenght for youtube)and upload multiple files YouTube at that same time using the trakAx workflow. It is a great timesaver.

Couple of points of note. The time it takes to upload multiple files to YouTube depends on your broadband connection and more importantly your upload speed. I usually do this with multiple segments and leave it overnight.

Also with large files, it takes a little time to parse the file when it first brought into trakax so be patient, it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. Once it has been brought in once, it will not have to be parsed again.

I only did 30 minutes to save time and to give you an idea.
If you would like to see the video in a bigger screen, just click play and then click inside the screen and you will brought to the file in YouTube

I hope this helps and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

How to fill areas of a track that have no beat with a beat created in trakAxPC Pro.

I decided to add these videos into the tips and tricks area. A user who is using trakAxPC Pro for dance classes wanted to fill in the areas of dance track with no beat with a beat so that she could keep the class dancing at certain tempo and keep her students in-time.

There are couple of ways you can put beats over areas of track that don’t have beats in them so that you can continue the track with a beat. I have done two videos to show you how can do this

Fist option:
The first way to create a selection in the track, you can put on the loop play button to make it loops and then export the loop and place it on a track below:

Second Option

You can bring the track into the trakkutter, make a selection and make sure it loops and then bring the selection into the mixing screen and then line it up with areas with no beats:

If you would like to see the video in a bigger screen, just click play and then click inside the screen and you will brought to the file in YouTube

I hope this helps and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
