Hi guys… I'm back to giving RB a shot now that it's finally compatible with Lion. Having a major issue with RB transferring the wrong tracks. It's an issue I've be burned by twice before (using earlier versions of Rekordox, obviously). Thankfully, I noticed it at home this time instead of at a gig. Here's what's happening:
- I transferred a playlist (including tracks) from the Rekordbox Library to an external hard drive
- I plugged the hard drive into my CDJ-2000, and accessed the playlist
- some of the songs in the playlist are completely random (i.e. old tracks, with no discernible association with each other or with the new playlist)
- on top of that—if I play one of those tracks, the CDJ shows the correct BPM in the tag, but the BPM readout is totally off. e.g. I loaded a track that was 126 BPM, it played at 126 BPM, but the read-out showed 118 at the "0" point of the fader.
This track shouldn't even be in my playlist, and when it plays, the CDJ displays a BPM that makes no sense whatsoever. It's not a new track, nor has it been edited in any way for months—in RB, or in any other app.
So I ejected the drive, plugged it back in to my Mac, and fired up Rekordbox. Using Rekordbox, I deleted all the tracks from the playlist (on the device) and re-transferred the tracks from the library playlist to the now-blank playlist on the device. Same issue—a portion of the tracks that should have been transferred to the device playlist are incorrect. (Note: they are the same incorrect tracks as the first time.) Since then, I've deleted the playlist and the playlist folder on the device, and tried again—no luck. I reanalyzed the tracks in the playlist (in my library) and reloaded the tags, then transferred everything over again—no luck.
I have no idea what the heck is happening, but if someone could please kindly explain what is causing my newly-imported tracks to export as totally random old tracks, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
BTW, nice to be back on the forums… seems like lots of cool things happening lately.
