Dive Deeper: Introducing rekordbox ver. 7.0.0

New software learning, cloud, and automation tech supports DJs’ lifestyles with a much smoother, more intuitive workflow – Everything is easier, from finding and managing music to preparing tracks

AlphaTheta Corporation announces the release of rekordbox for Mac/Windows (ver. 7.0.0), a complete DJ software application that integrates everything from music management to live performance capabilities.

This major update to rekordbox – which is used by many DJs around the world, including countless pros – brings huge enhancements to its performance and feature set. New software learning, cloud, and automation technology has been added to create a drastic evolution of the software, and processing loads have been improved. You’ll notice that the time and effort needed to find and manage music has been greatly reduced, whether you’re searching for tracks from the tens of millions available on multiple streaming services or from your own vast collection. To make things even easier, any tracks you do add to your collection can now be automatically filtered by different categories, with cue points automatically set for you if you choose, and you’ll have the option to share playlists.

All this, combined with the newly designed GUI, makes everything from music management to gig preparation easier and more intuitive, so you can focus on being creative.

*Please check the rekordbox homepage for prices and details on the features available in each subscription plan.


New platform and GUI design bring huge improvements in software performance

Vastly improved processing load

Whatever you need to do in rekordbox ver. 7, do it stress-free. The updated platform has achieved up to 56% reduction in CPU processing load compared to rekordbox ver. 6, so the software runs much smoother. In addition, power consumption during startup has been reduced by 38% compared to rekordbox ver. 6, allowing your PC/Mac to run on battery power for longer periods of time.

Refreshed, smoother GUI for comfortable music preparation

Every single aspect of the new GUI in rekordbox ver. 7 was reviewed carefully and built to help you prepare for gigs more efficiently through a comfortable workflow. Fully refreshed, the design takes the best elements from rekordbox ver. 6 so you can instantly understand the state of your system, and it brings various enhancements. The key color has changed to blue to enhance the sense of unity with AlphaTheta and Pioneer DJ hardware, and both Dark and Light mode offer better usability thanks to the clearer grouping of controls and improved waveform visibility.

New browsing system efficiently finds music you want from a wide range of sources

Media Browser

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of music that’s out there? rekordbox ver. 7 helps you quickly find just the music you want to play. The Media Browser, which has changed from a tree view to an icon view, gives you access to your chosen tracks in the shortest time possible while scouring various sources for you.


New browsing experience when using streaming services

You can now display tracks from streaming services with a focus on the artist’s image and album artwork for a more intuitive, visual browsing experience. To find more music in the style you like, simply click on one of the links for an album or playlist, such as the artist’s name or label, to view a list of related songs.


Collection Filter

Quickly find tracks from your collection – no matter how large it is – with the new Collection Filter. Filter songs by date, genre, artist, or album.


Two Radar functions using software learning technology

Collection Radar unearths tracks from your own collection, which could lead you to rediscover old favorites and songs from your past that you’d completely forgotten about. So, if you’re preparing to play at a particular type of venue or event, you can tell rekordbox which tracks and which filters you want it to match, and the software will find similar gems in your collection.

Streaming Radar navigates new encounters with tracks from streaming services. It pulls results from among tens of millions of songs and can even search for tracks across multiple streaming services, helping you to add undiscovered floor fillers to your collection and find the tracks you need to make each playlist perfect.

A new era for your DJ workflow: software learning and automation tech significantly reduces prep time

Intelligent Cue Creation

Add a track to your rekordbox collection and the software will automatically set up Hot Cues and Memory Cues the way you like. Songs with Hot Cue and Memory Cue settings are registered in a playlist for learning. The software learning of rekordbox ver.7 picks up on trends, so the usual cue point positions are automatically reflected in other songs, making advance preparation much easier.


Dual Player layout

Quickly check the compatibility of tracks and find the best mix points using Dual Player layout, now available in Export mode. The operations of 2 players are linked when Dual Player is turned on via the dedicated button so you can play/pause, move through waveforms, and control Beat Jump for both tracks simultaneously. And with EQ Kill, Key Sync, and Key Shift control, there are even more ways to experiment with different tracks so you can make them sound perfect together.


Column View

If you’ve used the Column view in the Mac Finder, you’ll be familiar with the new Column View in rekordbox ver. 7. This hierarchical structure enables you to browse playlists and playlist folders while visually checking their hierarchy, offering an intuitive way to search for folders and files, and to select and navigate through multiple playlists and tracks.


Collaborative Playlist

Share playlists with your friends and DJ peers. Metadata, such as the order of songs in the list, BPM, grids, and cue points, can be included,* allowing you to share information for a wide range of purposes, including preparing for back-to-back sets or considering set lists for festivals.

*If you share a playlist that includes tracks from a streaming service, anyone who wants to use the playlist will need a subscription for the same streaming service. If you share a playlist containing tracks stored locally on your PC/Mac, the tracks won’t be available to the other collaborator until they purchase the music themselves.

Owner registration enables free control of selected new features in rekordbox ver. 7

The Dual Player layout, Collection Filter, Column View, and other paid features added in this update are available free of charge when DJ equipment eligible for owner registration is registered to an AlphaTheta account via rekordbox ver. 7. Once registered as an owner, these functions can be used even if the DJ equipment is not connected to a PC/Mac.
