Pioneer DJ announce rekordbox update (ver. 6.0.1)

Pioneer DJ are enhancing the creative possibilities offered by their professional DJ application, rekordbox, by introducing industry-first technology, Vocal Position Detection, and support for the Beatsource LINK streaming service for open-format DJs.

Using rekordbox for Mac/Windows (ver. 6.0.1) with the Creative subscription plan, you can see when all the vocals will drop in a track by just glancing at the waveform. This is possible thanks to AI technology with deep-learning capabilities embedded in the software’s new music analysis algorithm, which Pioneer DJ co-developed with Japanese tech company Qosmo. Detecting the position of vocals in the music with a high level of accuracy, rekordbox shows you exactly when to expect them – enabling you to stay ahead of the game when mixing and avoid vocal clashes.

Want to add new sounds to your sets? Update to rekordbox ver. 6.0.1 and, in Performance mode, you can choose from millions of tracks from the Beatsource LINK*1 catalog. This new music streaming service for open-format DJs has been built by music distribution website Beatport and record pool DJcity.

Pioneer DJ have also added the XDJ-RX and RB-DMX1 to the list of Hardware Unlock devices, so you can use Performance mode freely when either unit is connected to your set-up. And if you use the new version of the rekordbox app for iOS (ver. 3.0.1) you’ll notice a number of improvements to various functions. Find out more here.
