At the tail end of last week, Mixvibes announced that their desktop version of Cross DJ now has complete synchronization into Pioneer’s Rekordbox software – which to many comes as no surprise considering that Pioneer’s software is actually coded and produced by the Mixvibes team.
With the software, DJs using Cross DJ can push all of the changes they make in the desktop software into Rekordbox, including cues, playlists, and beatgrids, and then push that data out to a USB key. This makes Cross DJ the only software to allow this type of direct syncing into Rekordbox – although there are some 3rd party tools that allow Traktor and Serato users to do the same with their collection.
We did note that there’s no mention of a reverse sync – it would be awesome to see changes that you make on-the-fly in the club then come back across into Rekordbox and ultimately sync with Cross DJ again.
