TraCoConverter & TraCoMerger

(originally posted in NI Traktor forum)

About

History: I coded both tools years ago (2015) as I needed a visualization of my Traktor metadata and an easy-to-use toolkit to exchange meta data information between different Traktor installations. I am still using this tools to transfer my Traktor beatgrids and hotcues to the iOS app DJ Player ProOriginally I posted my applications in the NI Traktor forum (which is no longer available). 

Both tools are freeware, based on my own Intellectual Property (coded in MS Visual Basic & C++). I do not have time to support my tools further, but latest versions still working well so i decided to share the tools and links for all interested user here. 

System requirements: MS Windows (7 or later, 32 or 64 bit). No installation needed, both apps are stand alone direct-run applications. Download and extract the zip files and launch the included .exe file. Do not worry about any spam or malware, the links below (and .exe file in zip) are free of any malware (because it is compiled from my own original source). 

Mac OS user: TraCoConverter & TraCoMerger fully support the Mac Traktor Pro metadata, but a Windows PC (or Windows Emulation on Mac, e.g. Parallels) is needed to launch the tools. Just transfer your Mac ‘collection.nml’ file to the PC (no NI Traktor or iTunes or songs needed). 

Below are the links to the latest versions & docs for free usage. Enjoy !

TraCoConverter
  • main purpose: visualization of most important Traktor meta data (bpm, grid, 8 hotcues, musical key etc.)
  • import file: only Traktor ‘collection.nml’ needed (no songs needed at all)
  • supporting several collection.nml syntax (Traktor Pro 2.x, 3.x, Windows and Mac versions)
  • output files: TXT, CSV, colored XLS (Excel spreadsheet with all colored hot cue data)
  • latest version can create a database .db for DJ Player Pro to transfer all your Traktor meta directly
    (see DJPP manual chapter 3.3 details to ‘how to import’) 
TraCoMerger
  • main purpose: transfer meta data (bpm, grid marker, cue points, musical key) between different Traktor installations
  • supporting transfer between Traktor Pro and iOS app Traktor DJ v.1 (TDJ 2.0 not supported)
  • useful for song collection migrations from one device (iOS, Mac, PC) to a any other devices/laptop
  • supports restore of older meta data (e.g. beatgrid or hotcues) on new installed song collections (or iTunes reinstallation)
  • allows to merge meta data content from several collection.nml files into one master collection.nml
