What do you need help with?

Library Sync
  • When I tried to download tracks via Cloud Library Sync, the message “Download Error: Unable to download some tracks because no file was found.” was displayed.

    You will see download errors when:

    • There are no tracks in Dropbox
    • There are tracks in Google Drive which is not supported by rekordbox for iOS.



  • Can Cloud Library Sync download tracks uploaded to Google Drive?

    No, it can not.

    rekordbox for Mac/Windows can upload tracks to and download them from Google Drive.



  • What is Mobile Library Sync?

    With Mobile Library Sync you can sync your rekordbox library when your computers and mobile devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
    This helps you to seamlessly prepare tracks for DJing. For example, you can use your computer at home while using a mobile device on the move.

  • What is Cloud Library Sync?

    You can use Cloud Library Sync to sync your library on the cloud with the libraries on your computers and mobile devices.

    Upload tracks and videos to the cloud, then you can play them on other devices as well.

    For example, you can seamlessly use the same library on the computer you use for music production and the laptop you use for DJing. You can also prepare tracks for DJing using a mobile device when you're on the move.
