Itunes library load after huge amount of time

fracta Member Posts: 1 Member


I'm running an MBP2015 I7 - 16gb RAM went Monterey. I have Traktor 3.9...and when I open Traktor it takes almost 3 minutes to load my Itunes library (file size is 72mb).

With previous Traktor 3.6 it was just a question of second.

I m not scanning/analysing the track at the launch of traktor

    I have the exact same complaint - except I am on Windows.

    My Traktor experience would be VASTLY improved if we could get a fix for this. 🙏

    I’d love to get an answer from NI on this.

    Even if it is “this is not something we’re looking at any time soon”.

    Is ANYONE else seeing this, or know what is going on?

    How long does YOUR iTunes node take to open?

    Also seeing this (on 3.8) - around 120 mb, taking above the 4 to 5 minute mark now (but, it was never seconds... this was always slow ish - i.e. 1-2 minutes imo [I do have 100s of playlists in there though] )...

    This is nuts. Traktor shouldn’t have to scan the iTunes library every single time we open the software!!!

    Hey, just wanted to say our team is aware and we're still investigating whether this is a Traktor or iTunes/Apple Music issue. Does it take a long for your Apple Music to load/close down even when Traktor is not involved?

    Hi - thanks for stopping by. 👍🏻 Not especially long. Certainly not as long as it takes Traktor to load the iTunes node.
