Hi Jack,

I'm pleased to announce that MIXO v0.67 is now live with a fix for ampersands in NML track file names and also a fix for incorrect BPM after importing NML.

Thanks again for your feedback!

Hi, I'm trying 0.67.1 and still fails to import them properly. Ends up pointing to some .set file in an order version of Traktor install not the mp3 file in it's music folder.

Hi Jack,

I think there might still be an issue if ampersands exist in the Folder name. Could this be the problem you have?

No it's still the filename itself causing issue for me. What ends up is a .set file from an old (2.6.8) version of Traktor I don't even have installed anymore and the file was imported into Traktor 3 recently.

Expanding my test, it looks like it imports some with & now. I'll try and narrow down what's different with the one it doesn't like.

ok I was trying adding & removing tracks and it kept changing which it didn't import properly, but I ended up looking up those .set files in the .nml and found they are Traktor Remix decks. It seemed to bug out your parsing or something, but as I don't use those, I blew them all away from Traktor and now seem to be able to import the playlists with tracks with Ampersands successfully. phew. thanks for that. (I noticed what you meant by the & in the nml itself.)

Also did a quick test with ampersand in a folder name and seems to work.

You can close this issue
