    Default Traktor pro: how to duplicate track entries in library

    So, how can i do it? The purpose of this is to make a complete new set of CUE's in order to ease the live mashup process.

    if the cues are stored in the file, it seems like youd need to duplicate the mp3

    The cues in traktor aren't store in the music files. They are stored in the nml file...

    thats disputable. depending on a setting in the preferences and locking the file, those pieces of information can be written to the mp3.

    why would there be a need to add tags if you already have the info in xml format?....

    well, whatever, i just need to know a way to duplicate :S

    i think its redundant in the event you lose your nml, or to prevent issues in the event the single xml gets corrupted.

    "dont put all your eggs in one basket"

    shrug. im not sure, try a test case, but it seems the only way to have the same song with different cue points would be dupe the song and lock the cues into each. otherwise, how would the nml know which song youre using?

    download a brand new song.
    import it into traktor.
    analyze it.
    set up your cue points, grids, etc, then lock it and save it to the mp3.
    close traktor.
    duplicate that mp3, rename it (edit: i figure it will rename it automatically if you duplicate it in the same folder)
    open traktor and import the newly duplicated mp3.
    toss it onto a deck and see if the cue points exist.

    if so, that method stores cue points correctly. if not, then it doesnt.

    if it does, then you can adjust the cue points accordingly on the second mp3 and go about doing what you were going to do with it.

    possible variances may occur based on traktor version, operating system (shouldnt matter), and existence of other ID3 tags, or version of ID3 metadata. also, it cant be a .wav file.

    and in writing that, it becomes apparent that, regardless of duplicating, locking, etc, you can always have two identical mp3s and do whatever you want with them. once they are separate files, traktor handles them independent of one another.
