Hey there, since a month I can't use beaTunes anymore cause I keep on getting this mysterious message. Can you please help?

An error occurred:
Synchronization was aborted.
value too long for column "FINGERPRINT BINARY(1024) SELECTIVITY 99': "*544346500200000001f211f70df434e822071ee80aed...)

The rest of the message is too long to display & read it completely, but I hope you can help because also rebuilding/repairing the database gives me the same error!

    Did the message coincide with an app update?

    Hmm. Actually I am not sure, if I updated beaTunes before the error occurred the first time.

    Maybe it could have also something to do with analysing all my tracks with Mixed in Key and then exporting my them to Rekordbox?
    (Here are the steps described to do so:

    And thanks for the instant reply in the first place! I really appreciate it!

    Hey Tobias,

    sorry for the delay. I took a look at the logs and it seems there was some malformed data in your files that should have been ignored, but wasn't.

    Could you please download and install the latest dev-snapshot from

    Hopefully it will solve the issue. If not, please upload a fresh set of logs.

    Thank you!
