Pioneer’s latest DJ software upgrade Rekordbox 4 is released!
- Rekordbox comes of age!
Pioneer have just dropped the latest version of Rekordbox, Rekordbox 4. The new version comes with a host of upgrades most noticeably the new plus pack, Rekordbox DJ. The new plus pack is a DJ performance software that gives you the flexibility to use a single music library whether you’re playing with a controller, CDJs or XDJs (Of which have to be compatible with the application).
- What’s new?
To be able to use the new plus pack feature you will be required to pay for an additional licence. However, a 30 day trial is available for anybody wanting to try the new feature out. Unlocking rekordbox dj’s performance features means you can do all your set preparation in rekordbox – adding cues, loops and tags – then just plug your laptop into a controller and play. There’s no need to transfer your library into other software, and you can use that same library to play on CDJs or XDJs too.
- Is Rekordbox 4 free?
Rekordbox 4.0 will remain free of charge and is still the music management software you’ve come to rely on, with the same familiar layout and indispensable functionality. But now rekordbox gives you the option to subscribe to the new additional feature.
- Where Can I get Rekordbox 4?
From 1st October 2015, you can download rekordbox 4.0 (free of charge) from rekordbox.com. From inside Rekordbox you can trial Rekordbox DJ for 30 days for free, or go to the purchase page where you can then buy the Rekordbox DJ Plus Pack.
