Track Key info won't import into Serato

Hi BeaTunes,

Now that BeaTunes is including Key number information in the Key field I am unable to import the Key data into my Serato playlist.

At least I think this is the issue.

I have been using BeaTunes for about a year now and have been successfully analyzing tracks for key and importing the data into Serato. All the historical files seems to have maintained their key data. This is even after rescanning my entire library with BeaTunes 3 .

However new tunes added to my Library in the past couple of months don't seem to carry across the Key data into Serato.

I am pursuing this issue on the Serato forum as well, but any input you could provide would be great.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Simon,

    Thanks for you message. beaTunes only embeds the key info into your files, when you check the "embed non-iTunes fields" box in the beaTunes General Preferences. Did you do that before analyzing? (if not, you might want to try Tools -> Embed non-iTunes fields).

    Hope this helps,

    Hey Hendrik,

    Thanks for the feedback. This has solved the problem.

    I must have un-selected the option at some point. Doh

    However all seems to be working properly now. Have re-analyzed all my files using ver 3 & Serato has read the Key information for all tracks.

    I have posted your comments to the Serato forum.

    Really enjoying BeaTunes. Its suits my workflow between iTunes and Serato. Will be upgrading to ver 3 very soon. Thanks
