Yes... I think it's a database error.... How start a all new Rekordbox ?

If you look at the read-me article where you got the info you copy/pasted, you'll find instructions on locating the database and renaming it to try again.

There is one other thing you can try, it would be to disable the advanced drawing mode.

Go to finder, select Go > Go to Folder... and copy/paste this:

~/Library/Application Support/Pioneer/rekordbox

Find the rekordbox3.settings file and open it with TextEdit.

Find this line:
<VALUE name="DisableOpenGL" val="0"/>

Change the 0 to a 1 and save the file, then launch rekordbox again.

Hi, I'm from Argentina, sorry for the English, I have the ddj-rzx, install rekordbox 4.2.4 and in the middle of the event playing closes the program Rekordbox (Unexpected Application Error)
I own a MacbookPro i5 x Yosemite ver. 10.10.5 4gb Ram
Eh thought to change the memory ram to 16gb but I do not know if it will be for that mistake.
I need a solution as soon as possible.
Thank you.
