Now you can use Rekordbox to control the lighting during your set

Following the release of rekordbox ver 5.1 on 18th January 2018, the next version of our music management application, rekordbox, will be available on 20th February 2018. The updated software will bring new features to rekordbox dj including Lighting mode, which enables you to easily sync lights with your music during a performance.

Using the advanced phrase analysis algorithm in rekordbox (ver 5.1 or later), Lighting mode automatically creates exciting lighting sequences in sync with the tracks in your rekordbox library, drastically reducing pre-performance preparation time. The information generated in Lighting mode can be sent to any lighting fixture that supports DMX5121 via the RB-DMX1, a new dedicated DMX interface.

Download rekordbox for free. If you own a licence key for one of the rekordbox Plus Packs (rekordbox dj, video or dvs) you can upgrade to the updated version of the Plus Pack for free.

How to use Lighting mode
