    Default Traktor Backwards Compatibility

    Hey guys,
    I am downgrading to Traktor 2.1.2 for stability reasons. But I cannot import my Traktor 2.6 .nml collection into it, as it cannot read it due to the key update.

    The guy in the forum talks about how you can edit the .nml in notepad but does not divulge how one may go about this. “well you need to be good in note pad editing to edit your collection file unless you have a back-up collection file from version 2.5.1 or you re import your tunes” https://www.native-instruments.com/f...-2-5-1.197828/

    Has anyone done this before and could you help me out?
    I have a gig in two weeks and would like one less thing to worry about.
    Thanks for reading.

    To be honest, when I downgraded, I did it the hard way, and readded/async'ed the tracks again from dot, Pain in the arse, but the nml thing, it seemed a bit of a risk, considering if you make a mess of it, you gonna have to do it the long way anyway.

    I would rather not do that as I have a large collection of music that contains set cues, loops and other data. It would not be a risk to the .nml file as long as you just have a backup copy of it in case you were to screw it up.

    If anyone knows what I am on about can you please help?

    Thanks for the reply DJAdeSands

    But I doubt that's the only the only difference between the files.
    The Traktor .nml file is just an xml file - you can open it in any text editor.

    Really you need a working 2.1.2 .nml file - import a few tracks to 2.1.2 then export the .nml & compare it with one from 2.6.
    Then you need to write a script to remove those differences, or do it yourself manually.
