For the thousands of DJ's (if not a hundred thousand)who are using Pioneer Decks; Pioneer has announced that it will be releasing a new program for download called "Redbox" which actively manages and categorizes an entire music library using many different types of parameters that DJ's use to find their music as quickly as possible...And get this...ITS 100% FREE! Check the link below...

rekordbox™ is the best way of preparing and managing your tracks, be it at home, in the studio, or even on the plane! It allows you to import music from other music management software using the Bridge function or by simply adding them into the software for management. rekordbox™ will work out the BPM and allow you to set hot cue and loop points into the track, utilizing a full beat grid view in advance, as well as color coding your music and adding all the ID3 information so it appears automatically later on any CDJ-2000 or 900. Working with rekordbox™ also means that when tracks are exported to a USB key or SD card, the CDJ-900 or CDJ-2000 will load the waveforms instantly. The database layout within the software can be customized to suit individual DJ style which enables personalized layouts when browsing on your CDJ-900 / CDJ-2000s.

The software's unique reverse functionality enables the new CDJs to record your cue, loop & set history during your set which can be recalled in rekordbox™ later. If you enable the Quantize feature within the CDJ-2000 / CDJ-900, then rekordbox™ makes loop and cue points snap to the beat (1ms accurate), ensuring beat-perfect loops and cues.

More than being the central music preparation software for the CDJ-900 / CDJ-2000, rekordbox™ will also be fully compatible with future Pioneer DJ products across the range. As clubs begin to upgrade to the CDJ-900 and CDJ-2000 from the CDJ-1000MK3, the ability to travel and arrive at the club with your music prepared on a single USB or SD card (such as a USB flash memory key) is now a reality.

Pioneer announced today that rekordbox™, the digital music management software developed in partnership with MixVibes, is now available for free to all DJ’s seeking to enhance their club performance.

Rekordbox™ allows DJ’s to organize and catalog their entire music library as it automatically analyzes the track data and prepares them for use with its new flagship Pioneer CDJ turntables from the moment they are imported. Following the successful launch of rekordbox™ as part of Pioneer’s benchmark CDJ series (CDJ-900/CDJ-2000), the software will be available as a free download on May 17 at the Pioneer website:


“The rekordbox™ software is a powerful tool that will enable DJs to organize their music library which will ultimately enhance their performances. Our goal is to make rekordbox™ the standard music management software in the DJ community as iTunes is to music fans,” said David Arevalo, senior marketing manager of DJ division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.

This comes as welcome news to club DJ’s who might not currently own the players, but can maximize the software to prepare their mix ahead of their gig, and be ready to play on the CDJ-900s or CDJ-2000s at the event.
