    Default Give tracks a color box in traktor?

    Hi there,

    I've recently made the switch from Serato DJ to Traktor 2, and I really dig it.

    There's only one thing what I'm missing on traktor (which I was able to do on Serato DJ) and that's giving each track a color in the playlist, which I find a super handy tool to make playlists.

    Anyone knows an alternative to it?

    They've stated that they will never give us colored hot cue markers because it conflicts with their intended user experience.

    Do it yourself with the artwork field. Just change the artwork for all your "red" tracks to a jpeg of a red square.

    ^Not a bad idea...

    Combine it with a Smart Playlist based on the "colour" that you assign to a track (in a text field) and you are golden.

    There was a thread here with the same idea but for keys. Poster added his own color artwork in a .zip file Awesome idea.

    Unless you're an old dude who's memory has gone to complete crap and you rely on album art to trigger some latent memory about what track it is only for it not to be the track you were thinking of so you spend an hour looking for the track you sort of remember, but never find.
