From your device to rekordcloud

Before you can start using rekordcloud, you need to upload your library. Your library consists of a list of all your tracks and tags (artist, title, cue points, etc) and all your playlists. Your actual music files will not get uploaded.

Rekordcloud supports uploading libraries from Rekordbox, Traktor, VirtualDJ and Serato.

Uploading is easy but finding your library file can be tricky. Just follow the guides below.
