Had old version of Rekord Buddy installed on my Mac, from 2.0 to the 2.1 beta. I recently removed old versions and downloaded the most current Rekord Buddy 2.1.36.
Hardware: MacBook Pro w/ Mojave 10.14.6.
Primary Software: Serato DJ 2.3.2 (using iTunes)
Library Size: a little under 10,000 total songs
I’m trying to “copy” my Serato library to Rekordbox.
On initial launch I followed the drag and drop instructions to copy from Serato to Rekordbox. Started the move and Rekord Buddy immediately crashed.
Tried to clean out ALL my old rekordbox.xml entries through Rekord Buddy and after multiple crashes when trying to delete large numbers of songs (>1000), Rekord Buddy finally let me delete chunks of entries up to 3000 songs. Weird behavior.
With a clean rekordbox.xml file, I then tried to re-copy my Serato library to Rekordbox, using the drag and drop feature. My library only contains <10,000 songs, but the status bar in Rekord Buddy reads close to 15,500 entries (I assume due to the playlists). RESULT: crash.
I then tested with a single playlist (~550 songs) and it imported properly. I then tested by selecting all my tracks under “All Tracks” (select all not working, see below) and dragging to the “All Tracks” in Rekordsbox (total ~9200 songs) and Rekord Buddy crashes. I then tested with half of that (~5000 songs) and Rekord Buddy still crashes.
SIDENOTE: the “Select All” functionality is not working. I have to manually click the first song and then hold shift and click the last song to select all songs. I don’t know if this is correct functionality for playlists as well, but I cannot delete multiple playlists by Command-Select and then hitting delete, it only deletes 1 at a time.
