As there is no need to download and export files, you can use your meta data on Hot Cues or Memory Cues without worrying about the storage space on your USB storage device.
To set up, you simply connect the CDJ-3000 multi player to the internet with the PRO DJ LINK connection and a LAN cable. After doing so, you can start to use your rekordbox CloudDirectPlay.
To login to your latest recordbox library directly from the player, you export an authentication key from rekordbox to a USB storage device which, allows you to login when plugged into the CDJ-3000. Therefore, you can play your tracks from the cloud as well as the tracks exported onto the USB storage device.
