    Default Traktor Pro Question

    Ok, so I know this might be a dumb question but.... in Traktor Pro, what does the little yellow diamond icon in the playlist represent?

    I'm hoping it either means that I recorder it.. (cuz i forgot to export my playlist after my last session) or that it meant that that song was bpm analyzed and stored..

    Please help!

    Thanks

    It is a visual indicator that you have played the track. It is supposed to represent the old vinyl trick of putting your played tracks back in the crate at an angle, thus the diamond shape.

    I just got a clear vision/flashback of a Book of Love single sitting in my milk crate.

    The Diamond actually means that the track in a playlist is also present in the Preparation Playlist as well.

    When a track has been played it displays a tick sign.

    Then the angled vinyl records explanation makes way more sense, too. I only know that as a form of preparation for tracks you might wanna play within the next couple tracks.
