    Default Noob File Orgainasation Question with Tracktor

    Ok bear with me quick question my music files are organized through iTunes with various playlists for genre.
    To get the tracks analyzed and use them quickly in Tracktor I then copy the playlists to Tracktorís library and analyze the folder.

    What I want to know is there a quick way of adding tracks to the Tracktor play list after I have added them to iTunes plays list rather than individually transporting them and analyzing them into the Traktor every time I add a song to the ITunes play list.

    Example
    I have tracks A B C in a Playlist called House both in my Traktor library and my ITunes Library if I add say a Song D E F just to the iTunes library is there a quick way to then update the Tractor playlist.

    Import the playlist to Traktor. In your case if the playlist is called "House" then Traktor will label it "House2" as it already has a playlist called "House". Then just delete the original "House" playlist in Traktor and rename "House2" to "House". I do this all the time with my downtempo playlist as it's constantly changing.

    I thought this may be the way to do it as I have already found that Traktor replaicates the playlist with the title change, it just means you have to analyze the playlist again.

    Or just delete the old playlist before importing the updated one, then no messing about with changing names.

    I think the OP is looking for a way at not re-analysing the entire playlist though? Just the freshly imported tracks?

    Wait - Traktor will need to re-analzye ALL the tracks in that playlist, not just the newly added ones? So adding 1 track to a 99 track playlist will result in having to wait for 100 tracks to be analyzed?

    That's crap.

    Nope, if you delete a playlist, them re-import the same playlist from iTunes with say 10 new tracks, it will only analyse those 10 new tracks.
