I am yet to purchase Rekord Buddy, but before I do I want to ensure my needs are met before the big purchase. I just have two things
For context, I organise all my tracks and cue points etc in Rekordbox, it is my main source of software as I primarily DJ out and about on CDJs, however, when at home, I use Rekordbox DJ (in performance mode) with my DDJ controller to practice sets before use on a CDJ. However! My friends all use Serato, so when it comes to more low key events (after parties at friends etc) it’s important I have all my playlists and tracks Serato ready too.
I found a really useful video on Next Audio’s Vimeo page on how to initialise Rekord Buddy from Rekordbox, so that stage of the process I am 100% confident about. However, there doesn’t seem to be anything, anywhere on the internet explaining the next process AFTER this, in order to get my synced tunes in Record Buddy, into Serato.
So firstly, I’m sure it’s very easy, but please can someone help me on what the steps are for this?
Secondly, I am wondering if anyone who shares the same work flow process (that being, Rekordbox being the primary track organising place, Serato being secondary) could offer me tips on what they do when it comes to making their Serato library portable? It’s all very well syncing everything on my own system so they work across multiple DJ softwares, but what if I want to get this Serato library on a USB and make it portable… Won’t it be linking to my main music library on my home computer?
In short, I’m looking to be able to use the same USB, which all my tracks have been exported from Rekordbox, but also have my Serato playlists linked to this music, however, if it means I have to just have a separate USB which is a Serato one too, I’m fine with that too.
Sorry this is long. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
