DJCU is a conversion tool for moving music libraries between apps
DJCU is a very handy tool for converting track libraries from one DJ software platform to another.
DJCU or the DJ Conversion Utility is not a new application, it’s been around for a while however it only worked with a few of the popular DJ software programs. The latest update introduces the ever-popular Traktor platform to the line-up, with this new addition DJCU is now capable of converting track libraries full-circle between all of the major DJ software platforms.
The DJCU application allows you to configure which parts of your library get converted, say for example you only want to copy a handful of your playlists or crates from one platform to another, you’re able to save the time that converting your entire library would ensue.
Another nifty feature of DJCU is the ability to convert a USB flash drive that you may have prepared for Pioneer CDJs (using Rekordbox of course), to be used with Traktor, Serato and even iTunes!
How exactly does it work?
DJCU compares all the data in your track library, from hot-cues and various other settings. Due to the fact that applications have slight differences in functionality, you’re able to choose how the data is converted. Rekordbox has a total of 18 cue-points, while Traktor only has 8. DJCU automatically converts the first 8 cue-points when you convert from Rekordbox to Traktor.
There is a slight catch…
DJCU is only available for Mac OSX, and they don’t plan on making a Windows version. It goes for USD $14,50 (Around R205) which is not bad for such a nifty application. If you’re looking to move from one DJ platform to another, this will save you a lot of hassle!
They’ve also got a separate application that works with the Denon Prime system, DeCU. Combined with the DJCU, you’re able to convert between all major DJ hardware and software platforms.
