rekordbox, the digital music management software collaboration between Pioneer and MixVibes – the iTunes for DJs - is being now being made as a free download to all DJs after the launch of their new club standard CDJs.
Working with rekordbox also means that when tracks are exported to a USB key or SD card, the CDJ-900 or CDJ-2000 will load the waveforms instantly, Pioneer says. The database layout within the software can be customized to suit individual DJ style which enables personalized layouts when browsing on your CDJ-900 / CDJ-2000s.
The software’s reverse functionality enables the new CDJs to record your cue, loop & set history during your set which can be recalled in rekordbox later. If you enable the Quantize feature within the CDJ-2000 / CDJ-900, then rekordbox makes loop and cue points snap to the beat (1ms accurate), ensuring beat-perfect loops and cues.
More than being the central music preparation software for the CDJ-900 / CDJ-2000, rekordbox will also be fully compatible with future Pioneer DJ products across the range, the company says.
rekordbox will be available for free from 1st May 2010.
