Traktor - exporting cue points & playlists to other software
Well, I'm back in the game after some time off ...
Not much has changed regarding how I play or what hardware I use, however my backup plan at gigs, and what I play from while setting up my laptop, is normally an external SSD with all of my tracks, playlists and cue points pushed from Traktor, to Rekordbox via Record Buddy 2. I paid for both 1 and 2, they were great, did exactly what I needed.
It was such a neat simple system, Traktor is always my number one option but if I had to the SSD worked as expected because Rekordbox Buddy kept my tracks in sync between my MacBook and my backup SSD.
So, although Rekord Buddy 2 is now freeware, updated MacBook and all that so I can't seem to get it working. And even with my old installer, it won't activate.
I have tried to also use DJ Conversion Utility and Traktor Tag Sync Utility but to be honest, it's a convoluted mess in comparison to Record Buddy. I've watched videos and gone through the steps and it just hung ... I know the guy who developed it will probably chime in here and say it's easy, watch another video, but he has my money and good luck to him. Moving right along ...
From what I gather there is also another solution that you pay a monthly subscription for with cloud sync ... not interested in continually dishing out money, and not interested in the cloud stuff. Happy to pay once, or even later for updates if required, but Rekord Buddy set a reasonable bar for the right solution!
And I guess we should also add in, Rekordbox 5 vs Rekordbox 6 ... I'm certainly not paying Pioneer DJ every month for their subscription service, and the vast majority of venues I play in are still on CDJ-2000NXS2 (and that's what I have), so I guess I can stick to Rekordbox 5?
So what are people using to keep their systems in sync?
