Rekordbox XML Import BUG from Mixed in Key

Hello Pioneer Team!

I put my files in Mixed in Key and followed all the instruction from the Tutorial Video from Mixed in Key himself but it creates a Playlist (MIK Cue Points) without the files. I thought there was a way to put those MP3 files through Mixed in Key to set my Cue Points and import those files in Rekordbox but it doesn't work!

(Rekordbox Version 6.5.3, Mixed in Key Version 10.0.2365.0)

 

How can i fix this bug?

I confirmed this functionality for another customer just the other day:

  • import songs to rekordbox; allow them to analyse for all items available
  • export the XML file from rekordbox (File > Export Collection in XML format)
  • open MiK and import the same songs into MiK, allow them to analyse
  • click the Personalize tab
  • click Export Cue Points for Existing Files
  • close MiK, go back to rekordbox
  • click the refresh button beside the rekordbox xml tree item
  • right-click on the MIK Cue Points playlist, select Import Playlist; if prompted to overwrite, click yes

I have exactly the same problem using the same versions. Somebody can help me? I don't know what else to do.

Hi Carlos,

The last time I successfully exported the cue points to rekordbox was September 2021. I tried today, and it didn't work for me. So I did the same process as the MIK tutorial says, but I got nowhere. I started looking at the files and realised that when I exported the rekordbox XML file, it was 53K kb in size, and when I linked and exported the cue points from MIK, it changed the XML file to a smaller size like 42K kb. 

I am not sure which software is causing this issue at this stage.

make sure un MIK you dont write tempo or beat grid. rekordbox is for beatgrid and bpm. MIK is for key and adding cue points.

my extended list is:
import songs to rekordbox
select files and import to collection, for it to analyze
fix beatgrid for all (this is important since MIK will mark cue points based on that).
backup the work on beat grid (File > Library -> Backup library). only the DB not the songs themselves.
export the XML file from rekordbox (File > Export Collection in XML format)
close rekordbox.

open MiK and import the same songs into MIK, allow them to analyze
select relevant files. re-tag songs
click the Edit tags tab -  remove spaces
click Personalize tab - Export Cue Points for Existing Files. if it takes too long for update the xml it means the rekordbox locking it. close both and retry.
close MIK, go back to rekordbox

click the refresh button beside the rekordbox.xml tree item
right-click on the MIK Cue Points playlist, select all files. import to collection - if prompted to overwrite, click yes
changing all key to camelot type: in rekordbox: collection-> reload tag
