Free app includes improved layout, advanced features, and support for Cloud Library Sync
AlphaTheta Corporation has today released a brand-new Android version of the free DJ app rekordbox from its Pioneer DJ brand. With an improved user interface that mirrors the layout of the PC/Mac version of the professional DJ platform, plus a host of handy new features, rekordbox for Android (ver. 3.0) makes it quick and easy to prepare music for performances.
With so much music available from so many different sources – including streaming services, record pools, online stores, etc. – it’s essential for DJs to be able to quickly listen to new releases, pick tracks for their sets, and get files performance-ready. rekordbox for Android (ver. 3.0) makes life easier by giving you the freedom to preview music, hear how it will sound when mixed with other tracks in your library, create cue points, and transfer everything to your main rekordbox library so it’s ready for your next gig. You can do all of this one-handed via your phone, whether you’re at home, in the studio, or on the go.
rekordbox for Android (ver. 3.0) is available for free download, use it to prepare your music for performances, and manually sync tracks and data to your main rekordbox library via the same local network using Mobile Library Sync*1. And if you want to automatically synchronize your music across multiple devices via any network from any location, you can use Cloud Library Sync with a rekordbox Creative plan subscription and a Dropbox account*2. Find out more below.
Download rekordbox for Android from the Google Play Store now.
If you link your Dropbox account with rekordbox, you have the option to upload parts or all of your library to the cloud when you use the rekordbox Creative plan. Then, when you log into your Pioneer DJ account on another device, all your music and information is synchronized. You can use this feature to create backups of your library, or to prepare playlists, tracks, and metadata such as cue points, on your Android device when you’re on the go and automatically sync it all to your main computer at home or in your studio.
Even if you don’t have a rekordbox Creative plan subscription, you can still transfer music on your computer directly to your Android device, and vice versa, for free by connecting them both to the same network. If you then edit metadata such as cue points and playlists on your phone, the changes will be synced to the library on your computer when you reconnect both devices to a single network.
rekordbox for Android (ver. 3.0) enables you to easily prepare for performances, even when viewing the app on a small screen. You can use all of the following features one-handed:
Preparing for performances with rekordbox for Android (ver. 3.0) feels similar to using Export mode in the latest version of rekordbox for Mac/Windows (ver. 6.5.1). Use Beat Jump and Manual Loop, edit track and My Tag information, and find suitable tracks to play next with the Matching feature. You can play more file types too, including WAV, FLAC, and ALAC, as well as MP3 and AAC files.
*1 It’s not possible to sync rekordbox for Android (ver. 3.0) with rekordbox for Mac/Windows (ver. 5) or earlier versions via any connection type, including Mobile Library Sync and Cloud Library Sync.
*2 To use Cloud Library Sync via the rekordbox Creative plan, you’ll need a Dropbox account. The Dropbox Basic account gives you 2GB of storage for free. To use more space, you can upgrade to a paid Dropbox account.
