Hi I purchased Lexicon yesterday and did a full import from Rekordbox circa 9300 files. The import reported stated that I has thousands of files missing which seemed strange.
I’m on the rekordbox professional plan and purchased LXC to integrate into Engine DJ as I have moved from a CDJ set up to SC6000’s.
On the professional plan I have a dropbox account and have made the majority of my folders online only. Thinking this might be the issue I downloaded them locally but given the files still reside within the dropbox folder I didnt see this as an issue.
Once complete Rekordbox stated it needed to analyse again and metadata has all been maintained but now there’s no beat grid. Given RB go on about this all being cloud based and backed up. Any ideas how I get Rekordbox back to where it was and so it can transfer to LXC.
hi Christian, the grids are missing from within RB? Are you suggesting that a sync from LXC to RB could resolve the issue? I’m a bit perplexed as to how the cloud support within rekordbox has allowed the grids to disappear?
sorry to also clarify the waveforms are present in RB just the grids are missing. I tested one of my tracks in analysing it and grid was not how I have placed it currently so it’s overwriting my carefully placed grids - nightmare!
ps - apologies for the spelling error on your name
so I’ve hit CTRL A in collection to select all and hit analyse with only phrase enabled. This is really painful as I know have to wait for over 9000 tracks to be reassessed, is it always this complicated?
I don’t think RB can help there, I have no idea what they have on their servers but I don’t think they have your library.
I still think you have backups available because Lexicon doesn’t do any writing without making a backup first. Can you show me a screenshot of the backup rekordbox/Lexicon folder with the full path showing? I can tell you if that is the right place.
And make sure to backup your Lexicon library because if you can’t recover anything, Lexicon still has everything so that will be very important.
I’ve been speaking to Pioneer to help restore my RB files but they have now responded with the below;
Lexicon software is third party software that we never support.
We know this software directly modifies rekordbox database and often makes the library corrupted.
Unfortunately, we can not provide any support for the issue caused by third party software.
Thank you for your understanding.

This is really worrying as I’ve used RB for over 15 years and now I’m faced with all my files in need of a new analysis. Please can you help me. I’ve upgraded my Lexicon plan to pro for enhanced support. I can happily share with you the library files that I gave to Pioneer which they have commented have become corrupt due to the introduction of Lexicon.
