- Make it clear to users that your main collection cannot be on an external drive.
- Special characters (–, /, /*, */) in a file name or metadata corrupt tracks in EP
So after reading some posts and MANY frustrating nights, I realized if your main music collection is on an external drive, you will have a bad time. I’ve gotten in situations where it would work for a couple of days and then things get corrupt & circular references cause engine Prime to crash. Alll understandable when you realize the software was never developed to do that or work that way but please… CAN YOU MAKE IT EXPLICITLY CLEAR YOU CANNOT HAVE YOUR MAIN COLLECTION ON AN EXTERNAL DRIVE?
Also special characters like / or – in a file name and or metadata can cause a track to be corrupt, I don’t know how much Tech debt your software has, but could you please fix this? Its a huge pain for those that have big library’s that have NO issue being loaded on your COMPETITORS platforms.
I Seriously considered returning my sc5000ms because I could not get that database to work any which way. Your Hardware is great, but if your software solution isn’t easy DJs are NOT going to bother with the trouble, I hope 2020 leads go great improvements to the ecosystem, we are patient, but we cannot take bread crumbs forever.
