    Yes. 😀

    or, you can create playlists in iTunes, and navigate directly from the iTunes node in Traktors Browser.

    I’ve always found it easier to create my playlists in iTunes, then, if needed, copy the contents from the iTunes node into a new Playlist in Traktor.

    I usually only do this if I’m going to add any info to the Traktor Only Tags in the tracks in those playlists…

    I think it would be better to download the entire archive without grouping and organize it with playlist / smart playlist in traktor pro. Lists and rankings demand great attention when preparing for performance. sometimes some music can come from different platforms. it's better to be organized within traktor pro so that you are in control to adapt to everything. I am looking forward to your sample listing techniques :) but for professional archive, traktor pro has a lot of shortcomings. we always say that. :)
