MixVibes and Pioneer Release rekordbox!

September 17, 2009 by Mobile Beat

NORTH MIAMI, FL – September 17, 2009 – MixVibes is proud to announce its cooperation with Pioneer in the development of rekordboxTM music file management software. Today Pioneer unveiled the CDJ-2000 and CDJ-900 multi players with rekordboxTM, as previewed in the “Dawn of a New Species” online teasers.

rekordboxTM is based on MixVibes Cross’ advanced media management functionality, and was developed for use in combination with Pioneer products. MixVibes was selected to develop rekordboxTM due to its ten years of experience in developing stable, high quality audio software for DJs. Like MixVibes Cross, rekordboxTM is built around a high-end audio engine to deliver high quality features, such as cue, loops, hot cues and the deck layout is based on the new CDJ hardware.

Pioneer issued the following statement:

Based on Pioneer’s ‘Prepare & Perform’ concept, rekordboxTM works (for both Mac and PC) like the leading music database management software, but is more creative and more DJ-friendly. rekordboxTM allows DJs to prepare more before their performance and opens a door to tools such as Hot Cue Banks and Quantize, for perfectly synced loops every time. DJs can then export data to a USB or SD device to access vast libraries of music files and perform live – without the need for extra equipment or any inconvenient rewiring in the club. No need to burn CDs, simply take your USB device to the club, plug in to the CDJ and play. Through the industry-first Pro DJ Link, music files and database data on one single USB or SD device can be shared simultaneously by up to four players connected via LAN (local area network) cable. Plus, the data history of each DJ set is automatically saved and can be made into a playlist that can be loaded back into rekordboxTM.

A major update of Cross is planned this year and will include native support with the Pioneer CDJ-2000 and CDJ-900 for plug and play compatibility as well as many exclusive new features.
