Pioneer’s rekordbox™ software goes mobile – rekordbox is now available as a smartphone app
Enabling smartphone music management used in DJ play.
21st August, 2012
Music management for DJs is on the move with the new rekordbox app – the mobile version of Pioneer’s music management software. Since its launch in 2008, rekordbox has been popular among users of CDJs. And now the rekordbox app brings a whole new dimension to set preparation and performance, giving DJs mobile access to all the software’s key features and functions.
The rekordbox app allows DJs to view beat grids, analyse BPM, load waveforms and set cue and loop points straight from their smartphones. DJs can use the rekordbox app to load tracks and prepare playlists and then wirelessly transfer their creations from their phones to their laptops and vice versa.
The rekordbox app can also be used in conjunction with Pioneer’s new XDJ-AERO, the industry’s first Wi-Fi enabled all-in-one DJ system. DJs can load music wirelessly from their smartphones straight to the XDJ-AERO for a truly hassle-free set up.
DJs using the full laptop version of rekordbox software are able to upload tracks and create playlists on their laptops. These playlists can be easily transferred to multi-format players via USB, and then edited on the fly for true spontaneity on the night. Plus, rekordbox’s quantized loops feature means that loops made with rekordbox-ready tracks will be snapped to the beat grid – for perfect loops, every time.
The iPhone and Android versions of the rekordbox app will be available to download FREE OF CHARGE from 21st August 2012. For information on how to download the rekordbox app, visit the official rekordbox website here.
