A new tool for Mac users of Pioneer DJ’s Rekordbox 6 software, called the Rekordbox Collection Tool, aims to help them better manage their music collections and fix common issues on that platform.
What it does
By using audio fingerprinting technology, the Rekordbox Collection Tool, or RCT, helps DJs to, among other things:
- Remove duplicate tracks without breaking playlist entries or losing cues/loops and other metadata
- Add new tracks without accidentally causing duplicates, including moving audio files to a pre-defined storage location based on the playlist the new tracks are added to
- Easily relocate missing tracks
- Switch audio format while maintaining cues, loops etc
- Fix common issues with Pioneer DJ’s Dropbox cloud sync

RCT has been developed by independent Mac developer ATGR, the company that is also responsible for the popular DJ Conversion Utility (DJCU), a widely used app for moving music collections to and from Rekordbox from other major DJ platforms.
