    Default Traktor Folder Sort Files by BPM

    Hy pals, I usually like to play tracks ordered by BPM, but for do that i have to use the trackpad,
    and select on each folder to sort it manually by BPM, there are any way to configure traktor
    to sort tracks automatically on all folders or I have to do it manually each time I select a different folder?

    Thanks!

    Once you have it sorted by bpm, right click on your playlist and click consolidate. Not sure if this will work on folders, if not use playlists.

    I wouldn't even use the Traktor playlists, but rather the iTunes playlists and then go through the iTunes node (having to start up Traktor if you want to change something in the playlists is annoying - and the iTunes node does exactly what it should). Then just sort by BPM in iTunes and you're golden.

    I know it's not a hard job man, it's not about that, what happens is that i dont want to use the keyboard
    and mouse anymore and let my laptop away from me, as simple as that...

    it means that the playlist will save the sorting settings and always default to that upon opening the playlist.

    DJing by BPM is a pitfall. Be careful.
