    Default How do you guys organize your tracks?

    Hello, these days i've been very busy.......organizing my library in crates in SDJ.

    It's the 4th day now, and i've organized approx. 1/6 of my tracks in crates (ranging from 1 to 5 in .5 increments)
    And i gotta say, this is getting pretty boring.

    Why don't i have it already organized you may ask? Because i used vdj until a while ago (until i got my ddj-sx), and i used it in conjunction with the itunes library i had then, which i had pretty much all rated with stars.

    Now problem is, i don't have that library anymore. I (stupidly) formatted that drive, bought a new one, and reinstalled a clean copy of windows on it, so all i have now is the music folder (which i previously backed up)

    Here's my question, albeit a pretty stupid one: is there a way to automatically sort music in folders, say, by "power level"? because if there is software than can detect key and tempo, why couldn't there be one that automatically detects and sorts tracks by selectable parameters?

    Thank you

    i think the creators of mixed in key have some type of 'power' level function. check it out. other than that, idk.

    Thank you, i never found a use for mixed in key, since i fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you see it) have absolute pitch, and this+piano training+a small camelot wheel has always sufficed me.

    I'll look into it, thank you! Do you guys know how accurate it is?

    isn't "power level" a subjective term?

    Organising your tunes is all part of the fun, just like beatgridding.

    Yes it is, but sitting in front of the screen for 4+ hours a day just loading tracks and placing them in crates can get boring pretty quickly..

    Agreed, if you have 1000-1500 tracks. But that wouldn't be the case for me..
