First time poster here. I’m having two very weird things happening when trying to get my music on my prime4.
I have used the beta prme update and the lower 1.3 version, and it seems to happen across both.
For some reason, the Prime4 has the tags for my music playlists completely wrong. First they were coming from Traktor, then being imported as a playlist into the Prime software. This was working fine with most of my music. However, on the last few tries, the software kept corrupting the database, and I’d have to start over.
Eventually I decided to just copy the playlist tracks over using Traktor’s copy tracks feature to a USB stick. This essentially copies the original song files and the .nml file. However, you don’t have to use that .nml file for it to work. You can just copy and paste the tracks into an Engine playslist, and it should just be copying the tracks themselves without the .nml Traktor related cues, etc.
HOWEVER…When I copy the tracks to a USB stick, they look fine. Correct titles, BPM, etc. Yet when I go to load them in the Prime4 after copying the tracks over to the system, the tags are totally wrong. They aren’t even the same songs! For instance, a house track will end up being some ska track from a completely different playlist. So when I search for the house track in and out of the playlist, it shows up as having the correct title, but it’s the wrong track entirely.
What the heck is going on?
I decided I would delete the playlists from the Prime4 hardware while it was hooked up to the Engine database. I selected the Prime 4 SSD, then deleted the playlists. HOWEVER…When I close Prime and mount the SSD/Prime 4 as just a drive in computer mode, those songs are showing up still in the collection area. When I go back to standalone mode and search for them, though, the don’t show up.
I don’t want to have to keep copying and re-copying the same files over and over, since we are dealing with many GB of music here.
Do the tracks not get deleted off the prime 4 when you delete the playlist in Engine that you imported the tracks with?
How then will I successfully re import the correct tracks and remove the old ones?
Thanks for any help!
