I get an error saying some beat markers are invalid

For Traktor:
The main reason for this error message is usually multiple BPM values are being found in the grid. When you analyze a track using ‘dynamic’ modes in another app or when you’ve beat gridded a track which tempo’s changes throughout the track, you may encounter this.

Traktor only supports one BPM value for the entire track. You can add multiple grid markers to correct the grid on tracks that have varying tempo but in Traktor those grid markers all have the same unique BPM value.

For Serato:
The main reason for this error message is usually that two or more grid markers are not placed 4 beats apart. When you analyze a track using ‘dynamic’ modes in another app or when you’ve beat gridded a track by hand and added extra markers to fix the grid, you may encounter this.

Serato support tracks with multiple grid markers and those can have multiple BPM values but they are required to be exactly 4 beats apart. To put this a different way, grid markers in Serato can only be placed on the first downbeat of every bar in the track.
