Importing folder from external harddrive

Hi When I try to import tracks from a folder Mixo seems to get stuck then eventually crash.


I've tried dragging and dropping the folder and also selecting all of the contents from within the file.

After this failed I attempted a single file from the same location and it worked fine.

When I selected a group of tracks (in this case all the AIFF files) it had the same issue as before.

What's the size of the folder that you're trying to import?

Hi Miles


Its 80Gb

I did consider the possibility of a rogue file type in there, that's when I attempted to select a group of files, but as mentioned had the same issue.

I've added this to the roadmap:

We've seen this before in testing but not with AIFF files, can you try importing multiple files, but make sure the total size is less than 750MB.

Let us know how you get on.

Hi Miles

I tested by creating a new folder to my desktop with AIFF file at 699MB and it worked no problem.

Thanks for confirming!


We're currently prioritising issues with large library / file imports and it does seem to be around the ~1000 file mark that issues occur currently.

So please know that we are working on it and you can expect some improvements to this over the coming weeks!

Brilliant, Thanks for the prompt response.

I'm looking forward to being able to fully utilize the software.
