recording a continues mix with traktor 3 pro software how to mark indivitual tracks

Rocky Member Posts: 4 Newcomer

my mixes are usually 120 minutes long - 1 track! I used about 30 tracks - i would like to mark each track while I record, so when I listening to the recording I can jump to any of the 30 tracks.

    You mean you want to select every track?

    How would you like to mark them?

    There is no build in method.

    You can export what you played as a playlist, then manually add the timestamps. I did something similar with youtube videos I made of my mixes.

    Thank you Milos and Lord Carlos for your answers. I would like to know more about exporting the playlist and then to add the time stamps. How would this work?

    I’ve seen mixes on you tube where you can jump to a certain time frame.

    I would appreciate if you could tell me how this is done, thanks.

    It's manual work.

    On the left side in the collection browser -> Explorer -> Archive -> find the play list you want.

    That should give you all the tracks in the order you played them in. I'm not sure what the best way is, but you could right clicks and "import to playlist"

    Now you can scroll up again, find the playlist under your regular playlist, right lick on that, export, export as playlist .m3u file without copying files.

    Now you have a text file where you can copy and paste the name out. Or write a small script that does it for you.

    In youtube add them to your video description and add the timestamps by hand.

    00:00 First track - foobar
    04:15 Spice Girls - yom kippur

    If you are broadcasting to YouTube or even just recording a video with OBs or Obs streamlabs, you can use Now Playing2.

    It isn't too terribly hard to set up and the website has very clear instructions.

    This isn't really an answer for jumping to tracks, but still a cool addition to the video. Also putting time stamps would be cool. I am going to look into making my videos like that.
