Hi Guys

I am using Pioneer CDJ900s and CDJ2000s and therefore have my whole music library and playlists in Pioneer Rekordbox.

I have now bought the Pioneer DDJ-SX controller and want to duplicate my Rekordbox Library and playlists in Serato.

Is this at all possible?
If so, how do I go about doing this?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you

Hi Shahin,

No one-click way to do this as of now. The simplest (but possibly time-consuming) way to achieve this is to:

1. Have Rekordbox and Serato DJ open on your screen with both apps visible.
2. Select all the tracks in your Rekordbox collection, and drag them into the SDJ library.
3. Create a new crate in SDJ for every playlist you have in Rekordbox.
4. Select all tracks in a Rekordbox playlist, and drag them into the corresponding SDJ crate.
5. Repeat step 4 for all your playlists.

You'll have to set cue points and loops in Serato DJ, there's no way to copy them from Rekordbox (that I know of).

Hope this helps, good luck!
