// Seamless syncing
Rekord Buddy syncs your entire collection between all 3 programs.
Sync your entire collection
Instead of just syncing tracks or having to manually recreate your folders and playlists, Rekord Buddy syncs everything for you. Folder are populated with playlists which in turn contain each your tracks, just as you would expect if you had done the work yourself.
You can also sync individual folders or playlists, as well as single tracks, and precisely select what gets synced and what doesn't.
Rekord Buddy can be used either as a one-button syncing machine or a fine-tuned one that perform only the work you need.
No need to use multiple apps, Rekord Buddy does everything in one place.
Sync all meta-data
All of a track's information can by synced using Rekord Buddy. This of course includes things like Title, Artist, etc… but also the track's beat grid and any cue points or hot cues.
You can also choose to sync only certain fields in order, for example, to update only part of a track's fields between the two programs.
And since many different musical notations are available for a track's key, Rekord Buddy will automatically translate them to the standard notation (with or without sharps), open key or any other notation you wish to use.
By far the easiest way to unify the information from two different collections if you're already using both Traktor and Rekorbox.
Even complex meta-data like beat grids, cue points and hot cues are perfectly synced.
You can find more information in our community forums, together with many tutorial videos in the Frequently Asked Question section. This is a great place to learn how to use Rekord Buddy, and also get some information on how to get the most of your music collection, Rekordbox and Traktor.
// Who's Next?
Hello, we're Next Audio Labs. We're a software company making apps "by DJs for DJs". We make apps we love and wished already existed. We don't let a marketing department dictate our products, we use our own software and we always thrive to make it better.
Next Audio Labs was founded in June 2012 during an impromptu trip to Zurich, Switzerland. So while we're based in Southern California, we have this European influence at our core.
We love elegant software that lets creative-type people do cool things. Too often software gets in the way instead of helping you out so we set out to fix that, one app at a time.
In the cloud
We hate offices. We hate them so much that we decided to set our office and our entire infrastructure in the cloud.
We work from anywhere our laptops can go, and we use technology to make it all happen.
Simply put, we rock the satellites.
By DJs for DJs
Once upon a time, there was a video game company called Interplay who's motto was 'by Gamers for Gamers'.
We never quite understood what this really meant until we saw what corporatism can do to passion and creativity.
Next Audio Labs honors this old mantra, adapting it to our field of work. We make apps we would use ourselves and we make them for fellow DJs.
// We use and recommend
Software development, just like music, does not happen in a vacuum, which is why we often build our apps on the shoulders of other great developers who like beautiful and elegant software just as much as we do. Here's a sample of some of those awesome products, they're not even paying us for this we just really like their stuff.
Fogbugz Bug Tracking
HockeyApp Crash Reporting
Kiln Source Control
