Mixxx to Serato

Hi,


After recently getting a Pioneer DJM-S9 I need to move away from Mixxx, which I've loved for the last couple of years since there's insufficient S9 support in Mixxx.


Can MIXO help me migrate my library and cue points to a format that can be read by Serato Pro?


Cheers,

Gavin.

We are not currently exporting to Serato to avoid editing your music files as part of the export process.


However, this is a feature that we are considering adding in the future:

I've subscribed you to the idea so you'll be kept updated:

Ah that makes sense, it'd mess up all the last modified times on every track.


Since disk space is pretty cheap, how about a 2 stage approach to make tracks 'Serato ready' into a fresh directory, so it doesn't change the originals?

It's possible we may end up going that route with a Serato export in the future with a notification of how much space is needed.


Keep an eye on that idea Miles subscribed you to, hopefully it won't be too long before we have an update for you!

Hey Gavin

Whilst we don't yet have a way to export cue points to Serato, you can transfer your playlists over by using the iTunes export from MIXO.


Once you've imported all your Mixxx playlists into MIXO, go to the export menu and select iTunes. Select all the playlists you'd like to transfer and save the file as "iTunes Music Library.xml"

You'll need to move this to your iTunes music directory, so make sure to back up any existing iTunes library you have first.
