Mac Music.app > Traktor import. How to keep order / "date added" tag

Hi all.

I am managing my music fully in Music.app and have several playlists for deejaying. These are all sorted by "Date Added" so that i have my latest tracks at the top.

Before importing, Traktor will have the tracklist inversed by date added:

I can manually sort by "Import date" which returns a list in proper order but the "#" column is still wrong.

If i import these tracks now, a lot of them will get "Import date" from TODAY (but not all of them, some will adopt the date from the Music.app. But no matter if i just "Import to collection" or "Import to Playlists" - the order will be messed up.


I can not get Traktor to:

  • import these playlists in the same order as they are in the Music.app
  • to preserve the "Date added" from the Music.app

Can somebody help?

    Hi @fantaaa, unfortunately, this behaviour is by design as Traktor's Track Collection reflects the import date in Traktor (which is technically correct). At the same time, I understand the need to handle this differently. Therefore I'll bring this up with our Product Design team.
