Back in May, Beatport introduced Beatport LINK - a convenient subscription service that allows DJs to stream the music platform's extensive catalog (over six million tracks) directly into performance software.
This groundbreaking service is now available in the public beta of Pioneer DJ’s rekordbox software. Subscribers can preview and mix full-length tracks from an extensive catalog, before purchasing the standout tracks for their download collections.
“At present, most DJs can’t easily stream music directly into a club set-up," says Beatport’s CEO Robb McDaniels. "With our offline locker technology, laptop DJs can now store tracks offline to play without worrying about Wi-Fi. This game changing technology will give DJs a huge selection of new tracks they can confidently take to gigs to combine with their download collections.”
Beatport LINK PRO is available for $40.00 a month and for the first time ever will allow laptop DJ's top take 50 tracks from Beatport's catalog offline in rekordbox. The second tier subscription service, Beatport LINK PRO+, allows DJs to upload 100 tracks into rekordbox and play them without an internet connection.
Both services are available with a 30-day free trial and are currently only compatible with Mac.
