Djay 2 Pro (Mac) crashing when searching or sorting library, HELP!

I have a problem with the latest version of Djay Pro 2 for my MBP mid 2012 8GB i7.

I have around 3000 tracks in one folder with intention that this would be easily searchable from within Djay during a gig (for requests and so on). The folder is placed on my desktop and originally came from a hard drive where I store all my music from the years gone by.

I have added the folder in ‘Finder’ view in Djay which displays all the tracks, however every time I try to i) arrange the track list alphabetically by clicking “artist” or “track” or ii) conduct a search with the criteria set to ‘search in folder’ (as opposed to search my Mac), the program becomes completely unresponsive - albeit the current track will continue playing until the end at which point I need to restart the MBP. I can search with the criteria set to ‘search my mac’ without issue...

There are MP3s, WMA and M4A in the folder. Could this be a cause? It’s very frustrating either way, and I’m panicking about my next gig! I have performed a virus check on the folder but do not pick anything up.

All other functionality seems ok. I have noticed that for some reason when creating playlists in My Playlists with tracks from this folder, some appear to show “Spotify” as the source and therefore do not play offline, even though they are actually in the folder which is on my desktop.

Any help would be greatly received.
