Pioneer Adds New Features to rekordbox
New features have been added to Pioneer DJ’s free music management software, rekordbox. Version 4.2.1 brings a new way of easily recording analogue sound sources so that DJs can effortlessly manage digital and analogue music in one library and also introduces a Matching feature that makes it easier to find the perfect track to play next in a set.

Using its audio analysis technology, rekordbox detects the silence between tracks and creates a separate file in your library for each one, so you can just press play and record a whole album to individual tracks without resetting the recording in between songs. And, thanks to the new Normalise function, the volume of recorded tracks is automatically standardised.

The new release also makes it easier to find the perfect track to play next in a set with the new Matching feature. This allows DJs to audition tracks in rekordbox and mark the ones that mix well together. Then, when DJing on certain multi-players (CDJ-TOUR1, CDJ-2000NXS2), you can choose to browse the tracks that you’ve matched with the track that’s currently playing (firmware update required).

Finally, to further improve the accessibility of rekordbox, the application is now compatible with all languages supported by Mac OS and Windows, including Hebrew and Arabic.
