Timings

This is my first dive into LOR. I've spent the last couple years of sales stocking up on some lights.
What secrets would the experienced LORers give on setting up a "spot-on" timing grid?
I just spent the last several nights experimenting with different ways and I think I found something that is somewhat useful. I used Audacity to strip the song down so I could primarily hear the cymbal beats. No, I don't know Audacity very well, so that was new to me as well! I then imported the stripped version in to LOR and used the tapper. Next I zoomed in on the wave form view and used that to visually catch any timing marks that were off. Looking close like that, I couldn't believe how many I was noticeably off on. I fixed that, played the song and everything looks to be pretty good, so far.
So, is that a reasonable way of going about timing a song, or is there some quick magic way of doing it? You can tell me, I promise I won't let any secrets out :cool:

Use the beat wizard...it detects the beat for you for the most part...unless the song changes beat...

And if the beat changes during the song, use the the beat wizard piecemeal, just doing part of the song at a time.
