    Thank for the help @Scottie and @Cupe, I read through that section of the manual and that didn’t work for me, none of the star rating changed. What I did stumbled across that worked was this, Step 1: Insert the USB device Step 2: Expand the playlist I want the update Step 3: Click the track or tracks I want, I clicked track 1, scrolled to the bottom, held shift and click the last track (100 in total) Step 4: Right click and select *Update Collection* Step 5: Done Seems so simple now, cheers for the help tho fellas!

    Hey dude! Yeah there's a few common names that float around here. So DJing wise, I started when I was 15 and started doing 16, 18 and 21st parties and stuff. Moved into the wedding scene but hated it so entered a few dj comps and started playing in nightclubs. It's a pretty hard gig here in Perth. Breaking into the scene is pretty much like anywhere else but on a much smaller scale. I started playing in venues when I was 19 and pulled the pin when I was about 26. I had a decent run but I there were a few people that didn't want me around and drove me out of the biz. Kinda sucks but I'm happier this way. It was getting real messy towards the end and I was losing all the passion I had for it. Producing wise, probably been doing it as long as I've been djing. I have some stuff floating around the usual online stores, had some of my tracks played by some Aussie big wigs back in the day which is always nice. I also played alongside a few of them. I felt stuck here in Perth, like I couldn't progress any further than where I already got. The scene here changes at a rapid pace too so unless you adapt you really have a short life span. But that's ok coz I played some killer shows and broke some hearts (other djs egos) in the process so I'm happy with that 🙂 I'm still claiming I was the only DJ to ever have an encore at my last residency haha I'm also claiming that I promoted one of the biggest Saturday night events the city had seen in recent memory. I'm willing to debate that with anyone that thinks otherwise 😂 All that aside, I still dabble in a bit here and there but definitely not taking it as serious as I once was. Having said that, I have been fishing around for the motivation to get back into it so we'll see what happens in the future. So that's a super small and watered down version of my life. Who's next?

    Pics of your Set-up

    As a new member it's only fair I contribute to the set up thread 🤙 Currently I have the XJD-RX2 with 2x JBL 3 series LSR308 with Sennheiser HD25's headphones, some LED strips and a little RGB in the corner. I also have a few indoor plants like palms and elephant ears that are usually behind the decks and in the corners to give it more of a calmative effect. On a side note, scrolling through the 105 pages in this thread, the evolution of the technology is incredible!!

    Kouki - Only One [Trump'd Music]

    Since my absence from the music industry I never had a second thought to write or release anything or promote another party. It's been 3 years now and since I sold my car I've been looking for another hobby to fill in my boredom. I fired up Trump'd again on a VERY small scale. There's a few releases under the Trump'd banner ready to go, which I'll post through out the year. My commitment levels are no where near what they were when I was full-time and I have no idea what's relevant but I'm gonna put out some tunes anyway. Here's the latest one. It's only available via stream on Spotify and Apple Music (amongst others). Once I sort out my distribution to Beatport I'll probably put out some DJ friendly versions for the venues and such. Enjoy.

    Maybe this? https://rekordbox.com/_app/files/img/rekordbox4.0.0manual_en1001g.pdf If you update the star rating on the decks, then unplug the USB and then plug it back into the decks, has the star rating stayed updated?

    Hey fam, I should have joined a forum years ago so please excuse my ignorance as I'm sure this topic has been covered more than once. After digging through the interwebs, Pioneer FAQ's, Youtube and still not being able to find an answer, I've conceded defeat and thought I'd ask for help. The question I've got is, I transfer my playlists from Rekorbox to a USB device (not a problem), while mixing, I edit the star rating for future mixes (here's comes the problem), when I load the USB device back into Rekordbox and it imports the histories, the star rating doesn't change in the original Playlist section. No doubt it's something simple I'm overlooking or missing. I just don't want to go through the Playlist a second time and do it all over again, any help?

    Located in Brisbane. Love anything with a broken beat first and foremost mid tempo, Glitch Hop and Ghetto Funk particularly but have been finding low tempo bass emerging well lately. Have a collection of most genres that have been dug from the depths over the years with different flavours to it that I love spinning.

    Evening / morning or whenever you’re reading this. I’m still quite new here and noticed there’s only a few active users that post or reply to topics, so I thought I’d throw out the question to see what genre of music you like to mix, spin or produce or if you hold residencies ect.. Me, I’m located on the Gold Coast in Queensland, I focus on tech house – techno – base house, started mixing when I was 18, did the club scene for 2 years and gave it all up. 10 years on I’m now getting back into it. Gig wise I do some private parties / house parties and the od roof top Saturday – Sunday session. I’d like to take it a step further and do events weekly but I need to regain my skill set. Fire away 🤙

    i was witness to this so can confirm. i started out from friends of mine who showed me the ways of vinyl, then i met @LabRat through a Tafe connection when we DJ'd a fundraiser which was 8yrs ago, he introduced me to this forum and they havent been able to get rid of me since LOL. I spin mainly Drum & Bass, hardcore Dubstep (Rapestep or whatever you want to call it), bit of breakbeat and hip hop on the side. Like labrat i too got sick of the Perth scene, too many tards that will stab you in the back or not look openly on other people who are trying to break into the scene with talent, it's all who you know. Labrat and I also had a residency at a local online radio station which we got a few gigs from but that fell in the ass after about 2yrs. I don't mix as much i used to, but i drop something every now and then, mainly in the 3rd weekend of March of every year

    Limiters?

    Dragged my 8" monitors to a house party the other weekend and the tweeters have blown. Definitely at some point the signals were entirely maxxed, from dj controller to mixer console to speakers. I wanna put something in the chain that can prevent something like this happening again, where I can setup the gear and walk away knowing noobs can push their signals as much as they want. Is a limiter something I should be looking for here? Anyone got any experience, recommendations?

    @LabRat For me it helps song choice for future events, what sounds good through the headphone in front of a computer isn't always a 5 star at a venue. Hopfully this helps someone else out in the future.

    Limiters?

    after a certain point something along the chain will start clipping so you're not going over the max anyway. The limiter you want, was inside you all along - use your brain and watch levels. If you think something like that will happen again, and you can't just keep an eye on levels, unmap the master output volume knob/set up master limiter in traktor/tape off the volume knobs on the monitors - hardware limiters start at nearly $200 and are built for studios, so they're big units for rack mounting.

    @OxyKon That's roughly the method I use. As I mix mostly tech house and base house, I've combined Mixed in Key with the star rating. Using harmonic mixing and using the start rating helps me know what direction the set will head and what energy each song will bring. 2-3 star is early in the set 4-5 is peaking set, obviously reading the crowd as well.

    nice find @Craig, i've never done it that way before, although i always rate my tracks once i purchase them, and i have a different method of rating haha, 1 star means it's just the standard genre of track, 5 stars means it's the most brutal track you've ever heard 😛

    with social media being a big and easy source of promotion, i would suggest getting involved with that. it's a stats game today so any kind of traffic that drives you to your socials is gonna help. i don't play a big role with my socials but there's some people around here that could help with suggestions and ideas. get out there and get involved in your scene. put money behind the bar, get to know people and even help promote the night by dragging your mates down. it's very much a "what are you going to do for me" situation. when i was running my night i was out to help people but you understand quite quickly why most promoters are the way they are, and it's because no one gives back to the night. it got to a point where i had people ask me to play for free but they didn't promote my night nor did some of them even rock up! (some had no idea what it was. they only contacted me because one of their mates told them too)... stay humble, there's too many cock heads out there. show your support for your local scene and those guys will give back to you.

    I started in turntablism after watching sick cunts like DJ Qbert, Peanut Butter Wolf, Cut Chemist, Mix Master Mike et al and got a set of stanton vinyl decks (which I still have over a decade later). Starting in the scratch world taught me heaps of shit valuable shit. I can basically beatmatch anything except I duno how the sync button works still 🤷‍♂️ Now I mix anything. Also like the absolute filth dubsteppy shit probably most than other genres. Also just over 10 years ago I noticed there was no support forum for Australian DJs and made this website.

    Pioneer and the rest of them don't really make anything easy. I never used the rating system when I was playing but it make sense that you should be able to rate the tracks at the venue then bring them across to rekordbox on when you load the usb in. Glad you got it figured out now

    ADJF Meat 2019 Shout outs

    LOL i thought i was the only one who noticed this. The meat happened back in the day as an idea for everyone to catch up from across the country, play tunes and have a good time. The 1st one (being in Sydney) was pretty much exclusively Sydney siders with the exception of a couple, since then it's grown into even more of a tight net group, i was one of the unlucky ones to cry into his beer bottle when the 1st meat happened, but i'm so lucky to be apart of every meat since, and not to mention meet some of the coolest dudes around. Bring on 2020
