Rekordbox 6: Review and Features

NEW Rekordbox lets you manage your library in the cloud – Synchronize your library across multiple devices

At Pioneer DJ, we continue to respect social distancing. Like all of our friends in the music community, we want to get back on the dance floor very soon.

Until then, and in preparation, we help you practice from home by announcing that Rekordbox 6.0 and Rekordbox for iOS (3.0) are now available.

With an extensive host of new features, the updated DJ app lets you sync your entire music library across multiple devices via the cloud-based app, Dropbox.

The way we enjoy music has evolved, computers and mobile devices have become the focus for listening to our favorite sounds, as well as new emerging genres. It is natural that the needs of DJs have also changed.

That’s why we’ve rebuilt Rekordbox to offer centralized music management that stores your tracks in the cloud so you can play them across multiple devices whenever you want. Three new subscription plans, including a free option and offering different feature sets so you can use the package that best suits your needs. Choose from the Free, Basic, and Creative plans.

For the first time, Export mode users can prepare sets in an advanced virtual DJ environment using Performance mode, which is now free **. Choose the creative plan within Rekordbox ver. 6.0 and you will have cloud access to the latest version of your library, wherever you are.

Prepare playlists, tracks, and metadata as cue points on your computer, then download them. You can even choose playlists and tracks to transfer to and from your iPhone. Also, if you are trying ideas like setting Hot Cues to a new track, you can update your library from your iPhone and the changes will be reflected across all your devices.

Plus, if your computer is lost or damaged, the music and metadata in your DJ library will be up-to-date and safely stored in the cloud.

Want to include the freshest sounds in your mixes? Rekordbox for Mac / Windows (version 6.0) now integrates with Inflyte, the global music promotion platform. Use Rekordbox for Mac / Windows (ver. 6.0) to browse tracks in your Inflyte Promo Locker and, if you have Dropbox enabled, Rekordbox can even import promotions automatically for you.

The new Rekordbox for iOS (ver. 3.0) also brings a number of new features that allow smoother preparation for performances and support for more file types.
