    I now tested the free version of Cross Dj for Windows. Its a trivial download on http://www.mixvibes.com/cross-dj-free-download/

    It read the Traktor collection immediately, including playlists.
    Cues are there, only a couple were missing or moved its number.

    The BIG problem is that most tracks had their beatgrid and Cues not exactly on the beat anymore. This causes serious issues for Syncing and looping.
    Please see the below picture for one of the many examples.

    This is the same issue that I had before using DJCU:

    The author says that only some collections are effected.
    Could you please check if you have this issue as well?

    Correct, it only supports Cue and Loop.

    I noticed it with my script as well, some beatgrids were shifted but I couldn't figure out why. Now I understand it's due to different codecs.

    It's possible that it has to do with using lower bitrate songs as well, because I noticed it while using a 160kbps royalty free MP3.

    Precisely. All converters will be affected. And replacing thousands of mp3s by hand is not viable IMO.

    As such, DJCU built a correction utility that operates AFTER the import into rekordbox. It reads what rekordbox considered to be first beat, and re-aligns that with what Traktor considered to be the first beat.

    This process definitely worked inside my macOS VM - but there were still corner cases (eg, when the 0.0.0 beat was in negative time, etc.)

    Erik, I loved your clean python code in your script. Definitively cleaner than mine
    Would you consider having a go on this problem, and creating a (windows) solution for this?

    Instructions for the Python script:

    1. Download and install Python 3.7.0. Be sure to check "Add Python 3.7 to PATH" in the installer.
    2. Download rekordbox-export.py and save it to your Desktop.
    3. Open Command Prompt.
    4. Type cd Desktop and press Enter.
    5. Type python rekordbox-export.py "C:\Users\yourusername\Native Instruments\Traktor 2.11.3\collection.nml" rekordbox.xml and press Enter

    The Cross DJ video explains how to point Rekordbox to the rekordbox.xml file on your Desktop.

    if you have any programming experience its not hard to debug this...
    sorry to not be able to offer more help, but I'm working hard on the DJCU+RECU route, as AFAIK is the only solution that will fix the cues moving around issue.
    There I have the additonal complexity of automating getting files in and out the macOS VM.
    Please see 5:13 of this video for a demo of the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7s0...ature=youtu.be

    Latest rekordbuddy2 __beta__ fixed the cue shifted in time problem of a demo track I have. This is great news.
    The stable release still has this problem.

    next step is to run the beta on the whole collection, to see if more files fail.
