Introducing rekordbox™ 4.1

Even more ways to play: rekordbox 4.1 unlocks rekordbox dvs for low latency scratching with excellent sound quality

Posted on 21 Mar, 2016, by Pioneer India

22nd March 2016: Introducing rekordbox™ 4.1, which unlocks new features of rekordbox dj performance software, including rekordbox dvs, to give you even greater flexibility and control.

Launched in October 2015, rekordbox dj is a Plus Pack that expands the potential of rekordbox, letting you play with CDJs, XDJs or controllers, all from the same rekordbox library. This latest update, rekordbox 4.1, features MIDI Learn functionality, and buying the rekordbox dvs Plus Pack means you can get low latency scratch control using the Control Vinyl (sold separately).

rekordbox dvs and the Control Vinyl work hand-in-hand to give you a smooth, low latency scratching experience with excellent sound quality. The software uses the same audio processing engine as our pro-DJ set-up to deliver a high quality sound, while the lightweight Control Vinyl is highly responsive. And you can use rekordbox dvs with all our DVS compatible mixers and controllers, so it will slot straight into your existing set-up.

1. New features of rekordboxTM dvs in detail:

Low latency DVS control of rekordbox dj with excellent sound quality
Buy rekordbox dvs and give highly responsive scratch performances with music in your rekordbox library. We’ve used the same audio signal processing that you’ll find in our pro-DJ mixers and players to ensure the highest sound quality. And we’ve finely tuned the software so it instantly reads the Control Vinyl’s time code to deliver low latency response you can count on.

2. Absolute and Relative Modes:

  • Absolute Mode: replicate the experience of scratching with traditional vinyl.
  • Relative Mode: access digital features such as Hot Cues and Sync, and scratch freely – regardless of where the needle is on the Control Vinyl.
Plus you can use rekordbox MIDI Learn to assign features to your controller for even more flexibility, while keyboard shortcuts give you quick access to Hot Cues and other tricks straight from your laptop.

3. Auto configuration makes set-up quick and easy
Simply connect compatible equipment and press the button. Or you can tweak your settings in the Preferences screen. So you’re ready to play in seconds.
