1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

Smart Playlists in Traktor: WHEN?

    +1 for smart playlists (without having to use iTunes).
    At a minimum though, being able to do BOOLEAN searches in Traktor should be implemented asap. So simple and powerful but still missing after all these years...ugh

    Oh for goodness sake NI can we have this thing already????? It's been nearly 8 years since this thread was started. What's going on? Literally nobody gives a flying <very rude word> about stems and sample packs and looks (I still prefer the stereo VU meters in Traktor Pro 2). Please stop "innovating" and do existing feature requests first. After 8 years using Traktor exclusively, I never thought I'd say this but I'm actually considering Rekordbox because of compatibility with club gear and library management features.

    So, what will happen now that iTunes ceases to exist on Mac OS Catalina and upwards?

    Will we finally get native smart playlists?

    +1 And similar function as My Tag in rekordbox. Traktor needs better library managment.

    loyal user since many years, i am surprised to see how bad track management compared to Pioneer.
    sorry , i will have to jump to that ship ;(

    Since this has been requested from so many users and still not done, to me it looks like traktor browser is so badly written.. that the only way to add filters, tags, related tracks, etc.. that all other software has, maybe they have to do a complete rewrite of the browser part.
    I would like to see smart playlists in the next updates, but most probably we'll get another cool feature, that noone will use (or less than 1%). NI are very good at this :)

    Smart Playlists, My Tags, Boolean Search, Crates...a lot of things would be nice to have, but what really drives me crazy is that there is no secondary list view! I want to have a playlist and a browser view (search result, explorer folder...) side by side so that I can sort my stuff into lists like every other programs does it! I want to have a "coming next" list as a side list, too, to make autoplay really working for me. And so on.
    In other words: Every improvement of library searching or tagging is worthless when there is no improvement in preparing lists.

    This is sightly off topic. I'd prefer if people kept this thread focused on 'smart playlists'.

    FWIW I completely agree... I requested a split browser in 2008, even made a mock up of it (you can find it if you search 'split browser'.
    I have a feeling that we will see something like this in a future version of Traktor - I know it's on the devs radar:thumbsup:

    I really do hope we see it in the following order...
    1 - metadata i/o fixes & features (multi value, custom fields, reliable read/write behaviour & customizatione)
    2 - browser rework, making use of the above
    3 - smart playlists, utilizing both of the above.
    3b - elastic beatgrids

    For T3 & TDJ2... one can hope...right...?

    Been a loyal traktor user for all my life as well and im sorry to say without this browser update I will also have to jump ship to rekordbox.

    And iTunes is NOT a replacement! iTunes does NOT recognize various royalty free formats like flac. And no, I am not willing to convert all my files to alac or similar, to be able to import my (flac) files into my iTunes library so that I can use smart playlists in Traktor.

    Quite frankly, the browser is a mess. It can not even compete with open source projects like Mixxx, see my request [0]. And no, smart playlists are not difficult to implement (source: I am a programmer). This is inexcusable. I sadly bought a license, because Traktor is apparently THE DJ software, but quite frankly it sucks. I am probably going to switch to Rekordbox. They seem to have a browser that does not suck - and according to a friend: the developers seem to be very responsive. No wonder NI is going down the drain.
    Please listen to your customers.

    Have u seen Rekordbox 6?

    better Serato. fk NI.
    It is the last time I bought something from them. Not even the S4 MK3 is what it could and should be. It needs people from outside who developed things users want.
    Just a sht company.
    best regards.
