Lexicon version: v1.3.4
Operating system: Mac
Bug description: When you sync My Tags in Rekordbox so that they match LxC’s standard categories when exporting to USB flash drive, there will be one My Tag category missing when using track filter on CDJ (in this case the first “Genre” My tag), even though it’s visible and functional on Rekordbox software along with Mood, Timing, and Mix.
Spent several hours troubleshooting with various flash drives (reformatted, etc,), CDJs / XDJs, and ended up doing a clean uninstall and reinstall of latest version of Rekordbox. Once I did that, I was prompted to sync my tags, which I clicked no to see if this was the issue and then loaded my tracks onto USB flash. No issues, had all four standard Rekordbox My Tag categories displayed on XDJs and CDJs.
Went ahead and hit sync the second time around, and while they are synced on the software, once you export to a USB flash drive, the only track filter options that will be available are Mood, Timing, and Mix—the last category will be blank and you cannot click on it from the XDJ / CDJ.
Not sure what else to do at this point, don’t think there is any way of unsyncing the tags short of doing a clean uninstall of RB6—any insights would be truly helpful as that fourth my tag category is vital when DJ’ing in standalone. For the record, the 3 existing tags that do show, function perfectly fine (renaming, adding tags, etc.).
Any help / recommendations would be truly appreciated!
Tried adding 5th My Tag category and still only shows 3 options, software just replaced Mix with Lexicon Tags…doesn’t look like there will be an easy fix on the user end apart from merging them all, but if I’m wrong, please let me know!
After messing around with My Tags in LxC, oddly enough the order which these categories are presented in CDJ / XDJ can be manipulated by editing the name of the category in LxC and then syncing to RB6. Let’s say you are going to edit the name of all categories, the first one you edit will now be displayed as first on CDJ / XDJ, the second will be second, and so on.
So moving the order of the categories will have no effect, but renaming them will have an effect on the order in which they’re presented on CDJ / XDJ. I was able to get Genre, Mood, and Timing to show in that order by editing each, with the last My Tag still empty and unclickable. This is a work around for now, not sure what happens if I add tags to each category, but this should suffice until we figure out a permanent solution.
