Over the last few months, many DJs have found themselves with a lot of free time. Why not use that time to take a closer look at your equipment and really get to know all of its features?
Yesterday, we announced Beatsource LINK‘s compatibility with music migration service Soundiiz. The service allows DJs to seamlessly transfer their playlists from Spotify into Beatsource LINK. This integration has come just in time, following the end of Spotify’s support for DJ software earlier this week.
Beatsource LINK is currently available in Pioneer DJ rekordbox, Algoriddim djay and djay Pro, VirtualDJ, and Hercules DJUCED, with more integrations being announced soon.
Check out our step by step guide for using Beatsource LINK with the DJM-S9 here.
The public beta of Beatsource LINK is now open to everyone. Sign up for a 30-day free trial here.
