    Default Transferring cue points/loops/etc between Traktor and Serato anlysed files.

    Does anyone know of a tool which can transfer user defined cue points/loop and the like from Traktor to Serato files?

    I know there was a tool for helping Serato users migrate from SSL to Traktor, but don't know of anything that goes the other way.

    I predominantly play on Traktor, but occasionally use Serato (usually if I'm on the bill with someone else using Serato, as it's sometimes more convenient to use their gear). As I predominantly use Traktor, that's where I analyse my tracks, and I would like to be able to transfer them over to Serato to make sure that all the cue/loop/load points are consistent between the two libraries.

    Anyone?

    I don't think there is I'm afraid. NI made that tool to tempt people away from SSL but Serato never did the same thing. I don't think it's something your average amateur programmer could do.

    Hmmm, I wonder if you could get hold of the definitions of the cue/loop flag from Serato and Traktor - my degree in is Computer Science and my best mate is a kick ass programmer as well, I wonder if we could conjure something up.

    Should be relatively simple ... I believe the flags are just metadata associated with the file, and I'd like to be able to set both types of flags on the file

    i.e. set it in Traktor, clone them in Serato or set them in Serato, clone them to Traktor flags ...

    in traktor all the info u need afaik is in collection.nml and is just a simple xml format, serato just uses ID3 tags to store cue points.

    not sure of exactly how they use the ID3 info but shouldn't be hard if u have an mp3 that's been setup in serato, just dump out the tags and have a look...

    then an app to read the traktor nml file(s) and write to the mp3 for serato shouldn't be all that tricky...

    not really sure why no one has written this before really. going both ways doesn't seem difficult if all u want is the cue points etc.

    Ok, for my next question - anyone recommend a program to read raw ID3 tag information so I can compare and contrast?

    as u said u were a coder i'd just use a simple bit of perl for this:

    http://search.cpan.org/~lbrocard/MP3...0.12/ID3Lib.pm

    in fact prototyping the whole thing in perl would be a sinch. the traktor xml is so simple it could be regex matched anyway.

    I said I was a coder ... need an excuse to buff the skills as it's been a while.

    Not to hijack, but I'd really be interested in an app that could transfer traktor cues and grids to rekordbox.
