Just to make sure, I’m talking about the IDtag comments, not Djay internaly.
Yes please add a comment field! I have a similar workflow. I use the comments field to help organize my tracks and to create smart playlists. I use comments like energy level, warm-up, peak time, closer, female vocals, male vocals, chill, heavy, etc.
In addition to the above, ideally we would be able to add comments within the DJay app itself. I use a lot of streaming tracks via Tidal, SoundCloud and Beatport LINK so it would be great to be able to add comments to these tracks and have them stored in a similar way to Cue Points and Beatgrids.
So far my work around for this has been to create a bunch of playlists within Tidal to group tracks into these fields. Not ideal.
It would also be nice to have track star rating field. I have used this in the past to indicate the energy levels of my tracks.
Absolutely agree! Star rating and editable(!) comments in DJAY would be awesome
Rating and comments is absolutely imperative!
Not only for iOS, also for Mac.
Adding color tag, that is show as background color and can be filtered upon, to a track would be simple and flexible.
This in addition to detailed user defined text tags etc, but color tags alone would already be great!.
I’m talking about internal DJay for all library sources.
This topic seems very related to the one discussed here: Song List Column Display
I also agree: comments and ratings are extremely important. The ratings are already displayed, but they cannot be set within Dejay. This needs to change as well.
@Slak_Jaw @Lukas_E Would like to bring this suggestion back! Have had to switch back and forth from Serato lately for work due to some drifting in DJay Pro, and I can confidently say the color highlight tags and comments sections on the fly within DJay Pro are the only things missing!
These features are extremely helpful for organizing playlists / sets, it’s not all about BPM. Being able to assign different colors or comments for energy levels and then sort by them is crucial for building momentum in sets…right now it’s too cumbersome to create a bunch of different playlists and try to track down the right songs.
Can we please see this feature in the future? Would be phenomenal!
My suggestion here is that we should have about 5 optional fields to fill out what ever we want to put it there no matter if the song is streamed or local one.
This would mean that we should be able to
- define the type of the field like text, integer (possibility to add range min/max definition), date/time etc
- for physical file map the field to wanted mp3 tag
- to be able to use these fields on smart playlist/filters etc
That should cover all additional needs we have.
This reminds me of virtual dj for some reason. With that said, color highlight, star rating, and an editable comments section in the browser for streamable and local files would just be sublime.
Can’t really refine playlists without these key features.
Seriously investing into DJ Pro AI now having gone back to back with Serato over a few weeks as It’s just far better software in mt experience in almost every way EXCEPT…
The main advantage of Serato remaining is the availability to edit tags across ‘crate’ based playlists which encompass both tidal streaming based tracks along with local or cloud based Mp3 and WAV files
This is vital to really get the most from sets from my perspective and a feature I can see the DJ pro community cheering for
Once that’s integrated it’s game over hands down DJ Pro has it nailed on all fronts as I see it on the software side
I fully agree even if I use Rekordbox and 'not Serato. But I think the basic idea is that in the end regardless of the DJ software used.
My personal thought … Djay Pro should be a native Apple software incorporated in Itunes (Music). Then listen to the needs of professional DJs to make it better even if it is more complex. Having the ability to put my Playlists on a USB stick to use on CDJ or Controller players would be the Top.
Bump. I use ratings heavily and the ability to rate/comment on songs is something I’m dearly missing.
Agree with all of the above… the library needs an option to display a comments field, star ratings, colour ratings etc… the way Serato does this is very good, and it’s the only thing in my opinion that lets DJPAI down. I’ve toyed with going back to Serato because of the lack of these features, but DJ Pro is still the better software in other respects.
Reviving this thread—still using Serato due to these key features missing!
We have 9 votes on this similar thread: Metadata Editing Please!
With the 21 here we have a total of 30 votes, let’s try to get other involved and the ball rolling on this. @Guillermo any visibility on these features (editing and writing comments, labels, color tags) along with a prepare tab for streaming and locally stored tracks?
Still holding onto hope to switch back!
I’m in the same boat: for me, being able to edit ID3 tags for Rating and Comment is absolutely necessary for a DJ app. If this feature is not getting into the roadmap, I guess I’ll have to switch back to Traktor (which would be pain in the ass!)
So just picking this one up again… In my opinion the only thing that’s really lacking in the software. Comments, colours, ratings, etc… selectable columns. It’s all been said.
I mainly use DJPAI on iPad, but looking at the mac version the other day I noticed there is indeed a comments section and various other columns on that. The iOs version can read the data I believe, but not display it. I’d love to see this shortcoming fixed… other than this I love the app.
Yes definitely, all of the information is displayed (mac version actually loaded my meta data from Serato), so this is a workaround (but I constantly edit these, so very painful to have both softwares open).
I want to switch back to DJAY for other reasons as well, but simply cannot for this —can’t add genres, energy ratings, comments etc. within the app…so frustrating…
Absolutely agree. Browser in djay Pro need major upgrade. It’s windows-crowded beast from past century
Inline editing of tags is the must for next version.
