Convert Rekordbox Memory Cues to Serato coloured Cues

Hello, dear Lexicon team.
I’ve bought the software and am now testing it. It looks great but the first thing I see - it doesn’t have one of the most important features for me.

What is the feature or ability you would like to have?

Transferring cues from one software to another. I’m talking specifically about converting Rekordbox (RB) cues (any type) to coloured Serato cues.

Yes, Lexicon can import to its library both types of cues from RB now. But it imports memory cues with no colour (or sometimes green). And that is the problem for Serato. Yes, that “transparent” cues go to Serato and you can see them with the correct timestamp. BUT you can not use them by calling with your device (controller, mixer, ets.). Pads in your physical controller are empty. To make those cues able to call you have to colour them all by clicking each manually in Serato.

Could you please solve this issue?
For example, if you don’t want to make big changes inside the Lexicon library, you can just add a colouring algorithm into the export to Serato feature. Just make transparent cues coloured please. And not the same colour but different - standard for Serato or random, but different from each other.

How will this feature help you and others?

I work in rekordbox as the primary library and Serato lib is the secondary but still necessary. I don’t want to do all the work twice - in Serato again or in other third software again. So I’m looking for the software which would properly do the cue converting job. And I’m ready to pay $17 monthly only because of this feature.
I’m also sure that this feature will widen your audience because only few users will spend their time writing the topic about their needs, and others will go away searching for another solution, not Lexicon.

Is this feature available in an existing product? If so, what product?

Yes, Rekord Buddy 2. The feature works there perfectly.

Does a workaround currently exist?

I haven’t found. Only double work: to make those cues able to call you have to colour them all by clicking each manually in Serato.

Use the Change Cue Colors recipe (see other post).

And if you set your cues in Lexicon, they will get default colors on new cues so you just need to sync (export) to Serato or RB, whichever you want to use. You can even change the default cue colors in the settings.
