CDJ2000nxs2 - Recordbox button and accessing library through lan or USB

Hey,

 

A little bit confused here... Do i need to buy Recordbox DJ or can i use free Recordbox software to just access my whole library without using USB or SD cards? 

 

i do not want to controll my cdj in HID mode, all i want is just eliminate the need to export playlists every time and just have my entire library available on my CDJ's at all time through LAN or USB connection. 

 

I had no luck so far getting it to work with the free recordbox.

Thanks 

 

Adam

yes, running the gear through ethernet to your laptop enables a "LINK" icon on the bottom left of Rekordbox, when you click it the 2 decks will show up at the bottom

I literally just figured it out... I tried installi g recordbox on my second laptop . Soonest I hooked it all up, like you said link icon appeared. So I ended up reinstalling and deleting all app data on my first laptop. Now it works. It never used to appear... Glad it works. USB export was killing me lmao

I actually prefer syncing my USB drive all the time before a gig, the USB drives actually load the hot cues faster for some reason then Rekordbox in LINK mode to the laptop but the LINK mode works great so go have fun with it, they are great decks

Do you find usb export painfully slow ? A 2 GB playlist takes about an hour here...

i use USB 3 higher end drives that have very fast export speeds, i have a 950 track, 10gb playlist that exports in a few minutes. if you have a USB2 with slow write speeds then yes, it will be painfully slow

for the easiest hookup for you if you are putting a mixer like a 900 in the link, use 1 ethernet cable to go from 1 deck to another and then run a usb cable from 1 deck to your laptop and the LINK will appear also. I use a 900 mixer so the ethernet switch is required

unfortunately no unless you use performance mode which you won't be doing

Rekordbox is more of just library management and LINK to act as an external drive source, all the audio routes through the players. 

you can however USB your mixer if you have one capable of doing so and using something like audacity to set the USB audio to be the main output to record
