In Use

The DJCU interface is the biggest “new” on here: gone is the dull, text-heavy main menu. In its place is a simple screen that has four logos: Traktor, Serato DJ, Rekordbox, and Virtual DJ.

The way it works is you pick the DJ app you are converting from, and then the screen that follows shows you the available conversion options for that particular library. In our example we’re exporting from Serato DJ, so you click on the Serato DJ logo which brings you to the Serato DJ conversion options screen.

Here you can pick rules for hot cues and cue loops when you convert from Serato DJ to Rekordbox DJ (because DJCU only converts Serato DJ libraries to Rekordbox DJ, as noted in the conversion list above). You can also choose to export songs that were added to my library after a certain date, along with other conversion parameters. Once you’ve made your selections, you just click “Start Conversion” – a few seconds later another screen will pop up which will let you choose playlists you want to export too.

DJCU will then start the conversion process – it takes a few seconds up to several minutes depending on how large your library is. Since I was converting a demo library (18 tracks, one playlist) the wait was short.
