Find Duplicates questions

May I have more help with the duplicates? please. (you wrote a great manual and I read it)

  1. From setting up FIND DUPLICATES on high, Lexicon found 30k dups on my first try ever.
    Did I do it wrong? (I have an extra large library 3TB).
    2.Also, before reviewing, should I lock or unlock?
  2. how do I know which track is kept?
  3. how do I know if the tracks replaced have all my cues points, loops, comments, grouping transferred over. does it merge?
  4. I am fascinated by this and I want to do it right since I wrote in my Serato tracks fields. I don’t want to loose 6 years of editing fields
  5. will it get rid of my pre-STEMmed tracks too? (sorry that s another topic)
    (I have read the manual for it, I m more visual and tactile learner)

Follow the procedure here: Find Duplicates | Lexicon - DJ Library Management

So don’t start with tolerance high. Start with Low and go up each scan. You may never need to put it on High, only if you really want to go through each possible duplicate.

The track that is being kept is explained in the result screen, every result has an explanation text under it.

Tracks with cues will get priority by default. If you want a different duplicate, just select it. If another duplicate has the cues you want to keep, right click and choose the option.

I would only sync to Serato once everything looks good in Lexicon. That way you can’t lose anything important.

Be sure to read the manual, it answers all your questions. A video tutorial is coming soon on our youtube

Stems are not supported by Lexicon.

ty for prompt reply. I ve made two mistakes

  1. set FIND DUPS on high
    2)I sync with Serato after finding dup. I left everything the same ( meaning I did not unlock, I did not review, I did not confirm or archive. (does that mean I will loose info on Serato ?). and can I restore to pre-found duplicates state?

There might be a Lexicon backup you can restore. If not, you can restore your Serato crates and import again. See Backups and how to restore them
