Could you elaborate a bit more what you are requesting here?

Some skins e.g. Tango and Deere do have controls to edit a beatgrid, and all skins have the ability to Change the BPM by right-clicking a track in the library, or by editing the BPM tab in the track properties editor.

Beatgrid editing controls are also available in the MIDI controller wizard, under the BPM menu.

I checked the midi controller wizard now but didn't find the requested controls.
The library contextmenu is usable but not very fast. (find title; right click; hover and move; left click)

Mixxx has
- beats_adjust_faster
- beats_adjust_slower
- beats_translate_curpos
- beats_translate_match_alignment
- beats_translate_earlier
- beats_translate_later

Mixxx hasn't
- beats_set_halve
- beats_set_double
- beats_set_twothirds
- beats_set_threehalves
- beats_set_threefourths
- beats_set_fourthirds
(I don't know the correct terms.)

OK, in this case it's a personal wish.
I don't want these controls as ui elements in the official mixxx skins.
But it would be good to have the possibility and to fill the small gap of controls. ;)

My idea is to speed up the workflow for preparing tracks/beatgrids. And it makes realy fun to work with.
FYI: clone my repo and test the editdeck (WIP) https://github.com/22degrees/RoundCorners
The "EDIT"-Button in the left upper corner in each deck.
