Pioneer DJ Releases Rekordbox DJ Music App for iPhone and iPod Touch
Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. Professional Sound and Visual Division today
announced the availability of its new rekordbox® DJ music management app
for iPhone® and iPod touch®1. The rekordbox App enables users to prepare
and manage music stored on their portable devices as well as create
playlists, cue/loop point and beat location settings, perform waveform
analysis, and more. The organized music in the device can also be
wirelessly synched with a computer utilizing the Pioneer rekordbox music
management PC software, providing the additional convenience of preparing
music for playback on a Pioneer DJ system.

popularity within the DJ community and we’re now making it available as an

Much like Pioneer’s rekordbox PC software, the rekordbox App makes it fun
and easy to prepare songs for DJ playback. The app utilizes graphics
similar to the waveforms, bars and buttons found on Pioneer players so
users can simply touch the screen of the device being used to create and
customize set points in their music. The new app also features music file
browsing with the ability to customize browsing and sorting menus; log and
play tracking for saving playlists on the device; and the ability to change
the language of the display from among nine languages.
Pioneer’s recently announced XDJ-AERO DJ system takes full advantage of the
rekordbox App, enabling an iPhone and iPod touch to become an additional
source for music content. The XDJ-AERO also creates its own access point,
eliminating the need for any hard-wired connections and allowing an iPhone
or iPod touch with the rekordbox App to temporarily transfer content
wirelessly to the DJ system.
Pioneer’s rekordbox DJ music management App is available at no charge from
the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
