I have spent a VERY frustrating few hours trying to simply run some tracks thro' Rekordbox and then transfer them to a USB for a gig tonight. Quite simply, the software crashes constantly - I've had major problems trying to import some new tunes and more problems trying to move existing tunes in my collection over to a USB and create a playlist for tonight. I had to re-label lots of tracks and manually fill out details for at least 50 of them and then when I moved them to my USB after trying about 6 or 7 times with the software freezing and/or crashing repeatedly, I then couldn't go onto the USB and delete old playlists.
I'm now faced with the choice between simply putting the tunes onto a USB directly from the computer and not being able to see the waveforms etc tonight when I use the 2000s in the club, or going back to Traktor which i don't want to use at this gig.
Seeing as most people who use this software are DJ-ing at a professional or semi-professional level, I think you've really messed up a lot of people's work this weekend. Why you released what is clearly effectively a Beta is beyond me and also beyond a lot of users. I've recently converted to Rekordbox after using Traktor/MacBook for 4 years with only about 3 problems in all that time. If you don't get this software running properly for people like me, I think you will lose a lot more people who made the change like I did. I think most DJs expect better from Pioneer than this. You could at least make it possible for people to reload the previous version of Rekordbox whilst you sort the problems out.
