Thank you for your help.
I have opened a case for this and some other issues. Let’s see if we can get this fixed.
It would also be nice if the synchronisation would be enhanced. Currently my main library remains Serato (as sometimes - because of different equipment - you still need to use Serato to control a CDJ via DVS or a controller / depending on the club and location you play at).
So that means whenever I download and analyse a new track (including tagging, cue point setting, etc) I will add it to my Serato library first and from there move it into some of the Serato crates for sorting.
To sync up those changes with EP I always need to resync the FULL Serato library and for me with around 12K songs this takes hours (even if I only added like 20 - 30 new songs to my Serato library and only changed 2 - 3 crates).
To overcome this I’d rather be able to only sync what is new (EP could build hashes for each of the Serato crates and DB file and only sync those files that have changed OR EP could always hold a copy of the old crate / DB file and do a diff like you can do in GIT or Linux and then only sync the changes), which would speed things up a ton. Then I’d also like to see that EP would know if a crate / playlist has been imported from Serato / Traktor / etc., so that it would be able to offer the possibility to update an imported crate once EP starts up or by using a button that gives the user the ability to update the imported EP crate with the original crate that resides in Serato / Traktor / etc.
This would make the integration a whole lot better for people that are note only using Engine Prime as currently the sync is more of a one time sync to move things over. I guess the future lies in software that is integrating with other software, which EP is doing already a lot better than other DJ software but I doubt that we are already there, where everyone is only using EP and I am quite sure that we will never ever get there in the future that all DJs will only use one vendor as clubs and bars will always have different setups…
What do you think about this?
