Displaying Music Playlists on macOS Big Sur

Hey Folks:
As I am working on getting deeper into library management with DJay Pro, I am running into some issues.

I have Big Sur on my Mac, and right now in the Playlist area, I only see a couple of playlists that I created as tests in the Music app, plus one more. What is missing is the rest of the playlists that are in Music. Though they are syncing across all of my devices, and through they are showing up on the iOS version of both Music and DJay Pro, they are not showing up in DJay Pro on the Mac.

I tried seeing if there’s something that I need to engage, but I do not see it. Of course, I’d like to get this sorted so that I can be sure that it’s going to work across devices.

Thanks!

Hey @Velanche_Stewart,

Thanks for asking about this in the Algoriddim Community.

Please note that My Collection playlists (AKA djay Media Library playlists) are currently not being synced via iCloud Sync. We are aware of the high demand for this. It has been previously discussed here: Syncing My Library Playlists between Devices

In general, in order for iTunes/Music to work as expected, you always have to have your iTunes library locally stored on your device (or use an external drive).

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers, G

Hello G:
Thanks for getting back to me.

Yes, the lack of a Cloud Sync that’s not parity with the iOS app is quite
the omission, and makes it that much more challenging as far as music
management goes. Also, I suddenly loss a mental grasp of how syncing cue
points and loops between iOS and MacOS is supposed to work; do local music
files need to be in specific locations on the Mac and iPad for the
functionality to work properly?

I hope that full-on Cloud Sync is a thing, eventually; it’s pretty much the
potential Holy Grail of true syncing between devices.

Thank you,
V.
