Virtual DJ

The apps you need:

  • Denon Extractor Tool (DeXT) part of the Denon Conversion Utility distribution
  • DJ Conversion Utility (DJCU)
  • Virtual DJ, the free demonstation version from Virtual DJ's site can be used.

What is converted?

  • Cues with names and colors
  • Loops with names and colors
  • Bpm and beatgrid optionally
  • Denon Prime history, prepare and playlists converted to Serato crates
  • Star ratings
  • All other metadata both platforms have in common such as genre, artwork, title etc
  • DeXT attempts to locate the original track audio files. If they can't be located the audio files will be copied to a local destination folder of choice.

You are in control

Select what combination of folders/playlists needs to be converted:

  • A few singled out playlists containing a few hundred tracks which is converted in under a minute when emergency strikes
  • Complex selections of both folders and playlists after the spring cleaning of your collection
  • History lists to only select the tracks that were edited in djay

I fully understand this is a bit harder to wrap your head around than your run of the mill "pushing a button conversion". Don't let that scare you away, it's not complicated and you don't need advanced technical skills. The quality of the conversion is superior, completer, way faster and more efficient than any other solution out there.

Notes

  • Only works with the Denon Prime performance drive, which is either the USB you connect to the Prime player/controllers, or its internal drive.
  • Lead up by Denon Prime history lists, prepare list or playlists,not crates
  • This is a "Sync changes made on the player/controller back to original collection" tool, not a tool to convert an entire collection.
