    Default Mixed in Key, PC > Mac ?

    Hey DJTT,

    Long time no post, good to be back. Hey so a buddy of mine has Mixed in Key on his PC, and offered to key all my tracks. I have all my music on an external HD. So if my tracks are keyed from his PC on to my HD, when I plug into my mac will Traktor recognize keys or will they be labeled correctly (Camelot Keys)?

    Thanks

    never tried it but theoretically yes.
    the key info is stored in the ID3 tag of the mp3 (either in the comment or the key field)

    2 things...

    1. Your external HD is probably formatted Mac OS Journaled. Which is the best way to have it for your mac. For PC well not so good, a PC will not be able to see that HD. You cannot change the formatting of the external unless you want to pull all the music off, reformat it to MS-Dos so it can be used on PC, and i don't recommend doing that...

    2. Mixedin Key is a good program. Traktor sometimes doesn't read the Key field. So its best to write the key into another field, like the comments field... or easiest of all, don't use Mixed in Key and try out those things attached to the side of your head. They work well and they are compatible with PC and Mac.

    Thanks for the tips Lance, yeah i'm not going to be reformatting my HD anytime soon. Secondly, I do use those things attached to my head! But time is money my friend, and MIK takes infinitely less time than keying manually.

    If your using windows on your mac under bootcamp, update bootcamp and you will have access to the drive under windows. Or if its a normal pc, install 'Macdrive' its a program that install a driver that lets you get access to mac drives, including your external

    It's payware but you do get a 30 day trial if i remember correctly, you can test it out and see if its for you. It's only around 30$ anyway
