Pioneer DJ Releases Rekordbox 5.0 Beta with S9 Support!

I've only used the Pioneer DJ Rekordbox software a few times while reviewing other controllers for Pioneer. I've noticed that lots of the functions and feel of the software reminded me of Serato DJ. With the release of Rekordbox 5.0, it seems that both software will have another common function with the Pioneer DJM-S9 being fully supported by both platforms.

I've only used the Pioneer DJ Rekordbox software a few times while reviewing other controllers for Pioneer.  I've noticed that lots of the functions and feel of the software reminded me of Serato DJ.  With the release of Rekordbox 5.0, it seems that both software will have another common function with the Pioneer DJM-S9 being fully supported by both platforms.  The Rekordbox 5.0 is now in BETA testing format meaning anyone can head on over to the Rekordbox Forums to check out the latest update.  Not only does it have full Pioneer DJM-S9 DVS support, but it also has the other fixes and improvements listed below:

[ New ]

Renewed GUI.
DJM-S9 support. (Firmware update is recommended for optimized integration. Please see below.)

Added an option to play Hot Cue before reaching the next beat.
