Library Sync

  • What is Library Sync?

    Library Sync enables you to prepare tracks for DJing using the same library on different devices which are logged into the same Pioneer DJ account.

    There are two types of Library Sync: Mobile Library Sync and Cloud Library Sync.
    You can use Mobile Library Sync for free.
    To use Cloud Library Sync, you'll need to take out the rekordbox Creative or Professional plan.

    You can use Library Sync with rekordbox for Mac/Windows (ver. 6) and rekordbox for iOS/Android (ver. 3).

    Check if any of the following applies:
    - Devices are logged into different Pioneer DJ accounts.
    Use the same Pioneer DJ account on all your devices.
    You can check which Pioneer DJ account you're using on each device as follows:
    rekordbox for Mac/Windows: MY PAGE
    rekordbox for iOS: [Settings] > [Account Information]

    - Cloud Library Sync is turned off.
    rekordbox for Mac/Windows: On MY PAGE, open the [LIBRARY SYNC] tab and turn on [Sync library to another device].
    rekordbox for iOS: Open [Settings] > [Account Information] and turn on [Cloud Library Sync].

    - You're using LINK EXPORT mode.
    Libraries can't be synced when you're using LINK EXPORT mode.
    When you finish using LINK EXPORT mode, the library will resume syncing.

  • I want to switch the Dropbox account that I’m using for rekordbox. What should I do?

    You can switch your Dropbox account in:

  • When Auto Upload is enabled, some of the tracks in some of my playlists won’t upload to the cloud. Why not?

    If the tracks in your playlist aren't on the PC/Mac or mobile device you're using, they won't upload to the cloud.

    Instead, upload the track from the PC/Mac or mobile device where it's stored.

  • Auto Upload isn’t enabled, even though the function is enabled on a playlist on another PC/Mac or mobile device. Why not?

    If your version of rekordbox for iOS doesn't support Auto Upload, it won't be enabled and the playlist will work in the usual way.
