DJs Can Now Prepare Cues, Loops & Tags inside Pioneer rekordbox dj

The new rekordbox dj software (which you purchase via rekordbox) now enables DJs to prepare their sets and perform from the same rekordbox library.  

Pioneer DJ is heralding a new era of choice for rekordbox users with the release of the rekordbox dj Plus Pack. Available as an in-software purchase from inside rekordbox 4.0, rekordbox dj means DJs can do all their set preparation in rekordbox – adding cues, loops and tags – then just plug their laptop into a controller and play. There’s no need to transfer their library into other software, and they use that same library to perform on CDJs or XDJs too.

rekordbox dj draws on Pioneer DJ’s deep understanding of DJs’ needs to deliver the industry’s fastest software. The software’s GUI precisely mirrors the layout of Pioneer DJ controllers, to give DJs instinctive, effortless control of rekordbox dj’s features.
