Library

  • Tell me about the new library in rekordbox ver. 6.

    You'll need to convert the library you used with rekordbox ver. 5 (or an earlier version), to use it with ver. 6.

    If rekordbox ver. 5 (or earlier) is installed on your computer, you'll see a button to begin the library conversion when you start rekordbox ver. 6 for the first time.

    Follow the on-screen instructions to start converting your library.

    Please note that the library conversion may take some time and you won't be able to use rekordbox ver. 6 until the conversion has finished.

    You can use rekordbox ver. 6 without importing your library from ver. 5 (or earlier). In this case you would use rekordbox with an empty library.

    You can also start rekordbox ver. 6 with an empty library, convert your old library from ver. 5 (or earlier), and then import the library to ver. 6 at a later. date Find out how to do this here.

  • Does my rekordbox ver. 6 library sync with the one from ver. 5 (or earlier)?

    Imported tracks and information such as cue points in one version won't be synced with the other version.

  • After updating to ver.6, do I have to set cue points and beatgrid for my tracks again?

    No, you don't have to set them again.

    When you run ver. 6 for the first time, your current library will be converted for use with ver. 6.

    All information in your library, such as cues, beatgrid, and playlists, will be copied over. (Alternatively you can select [File] > [Library] > [Import your library from ver.5 (or earlier)].)
