Looks like the recent release of 2.6.6 of Traktor caused major issues for some users who use Traktor’s collection-based playlists. Native Instruments has issued an “emergency” update to Traktor Pro to 2.7.7 which corrects for some major corruption issues. The update also requires complete deactivation of Metadata Sync (likely because the code was rolled back in some way).
Here’s NI’s words:
TRAKTOR PRO 2.6.6 introduced an issue which corrupts Playlists by removing the following content:
- All Remix Sets
- All tracks which the Relocate function is used for (either manually or by using the Consistency Check)
- All tracks contained in a folder which is imported using the function Import Folder as Playlist
Note that the tracks and Remix sets are only removed from the Playlists, not your Track Collection. Native Instruments has now released TRAKTOR PRO 2.6.7., which fixes this issue. Unfortunately, the fix required the full deactivation of Metadata Sync with TRAKTOR DJ for this version. We strongly recommend 2.6.6 users to update to version 2.6.7 to avoid potential data loss. Version 2.6.6 has been withdrawn from Service Center and the Update Manager.
