After weeks in beta, Pioneer DJ has released the official version of rekordbox 6.0.1. The latest update to their popular DJing software includes support for the open-format music streaming service Beatsource LINK.
When using rekordbox’s Performance Mode, DJs can access Beatsource LINK’s music library, including curated playlists and charts, and mix them with the songs in their rekordbox library. Beatsource LINK PRO subscribers can store up to 50 tracks in an offline locker within rekordbox, and Beatsource LINK PRO+ subscribers are able to store up to 100 tracks.
Version 6.0.1 also includes such upgrades as an enhanced music analysis algorithm and Cloud Library Sync, which allows rekordbox users who subscribe to its Creative Plan to sync playlists across devices.
Earlier today, Beatsource announced the public beta of its music streaming service for open-format DJs, Beatsource LINK. On this episode of Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx takes a first look at Beatsource LINK which is now available in beta in Pioneer DJ’s rekordbox 6.0.1.

Serato‘s continued push into supporting the mobile and club DJ industry continues via its launch of the latest edition of Serato DJ Pro 2.3.3. With this update, Serato can officially integrate with Pioneer DJ‘s four-month-old all-in-one DJ system: the XDJ-XZ. The DJ software’s colored waveforms now appear on Pioneer’s seven-inch screen and CDJ-sized jog wheel displays. Furthermore, Serato DJ Pro support for the XDJ-XZ allows for four-deck mixing capabilities and other Serato specific software features to be enabled.
Serato Chief Strategy Officer Nick Maclaren says, “It’s super exciting to deliver official Serato support for the XDJ-XZ. This powerhouse has already proven to be immensely popular – the versatility of this all-in-one system means it could take center stage at house parties, mobile gigs, and professional club setups. We’re really looking forward to seeing what DJs can do with the XDJ-XZ when used with Serato DJ Pro.”

Pioneer DJ has released a new all-in-one controller, the XDJ-XZ.
The device, which can be used with USB drives or a rekordbox-equipped laptop, “feels exactly like you’re using the CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2,” according to the press release. Serato DJ Pro support will be added in early 2020.
“It is the closest thing you can get to a full two deck [Pioneer DJ] NXS2 setup at around a third of the price,” DJcityTV’s Mojaxx says.
The XDJ-XZ is available now at $2,299. Watch Mo’s first look below and stay tuned for a full review.
