Lack of Sorting [WORKAROUND]

The main issue with the Beta as far as I can see is that it does not support manual sorting of your track list. I use this a lot with normal playlists.

But i found a little workaround.

1) add the "comment" column in rekordbox

2) enter your preferred number order

3) sort ascending 

 

presto ....

that's still way too long with 1000's of tracks, particularly if you don't know the tracks.

yeah for sure - its a solution for 20-30 maybe - but not 1000s. But do you really sort 1000s of tracks manually? All other columns can be sorted.

Yeah but it forces the beatport order into rekordbox. I prefer to work through sets in rekordbox and group related tracks together manually on a playlist. This is not possible with playlists from Beatport or Spotify - so I came up with the comment workaround for now.

Doh :) My bad. Sorry.

Once subscribed to BP Link Pro - you can turn the Bearport Playlist into a playlist in Rekordbox which is great - but you still cant manually sort.

can you renumber track order, remove sort criteria and then renumber track order again - i use this with play lists that I want in a particular order but then want to be able to manually move tracks around.
