Android users, we’ve got good news. Pioneer DJ announced today that rekordbox’s mobile app has now been extended from solely-iOS users, opening the doors to an array of smartphone users with the rekordbox for Android app.
Version 3.0 of the rekordbox app allows Android users to prep music, listen to new tracks for their set, and get files performance-ready. You can even create cue points and transfer your work over to your primary rekordbox library, which is key for on-the-fly work when you can’t get to your laptop – more on that below.
rekordbox for Android offers a ton of the Rekordbox mobile app features that are worth having, including:
- Cloud Library Sync via Dropbox – You can upload parts or all of your library to the cloud through Dropbox, and access it all on any device. It’ll sync through the cloud to your primary computer as well. (usable with the rekordbox Creative subscription)
- Mobile Library Sync – transfer your tunes from your computer directly to an Android device, and vice versa – by connecting them to the same network; you can also edit metadata on your phone, and it will transfer to your computer’s primary library (usable even without the rekordbox Creative subscription)
- Playlist Box – a box that appears at the bottom of the screen, which allows users to reference their collection while they browse
- Quick Cue – swipe to the left to set a Memory Cue, and to the right to set a Hot Cue. Tap it to save to Realtime Memory.
- Realtime Memory – Set a Memory Cue while a track is playing, without stopping the music and pressing Cue > Memory – meaning the music will never need to pause
- Dual Control – lets DJs listen to how a mix will sound later. For example: play two tracks in sync, then Beat Jump forward or swipe the waveforms, and both will move forward by the same amount.
- Independent A/B decks – When in “Player” mode, you can view both Deck A & B solely by swiping either left or right. Want to see both in the same screen? Just swipe again, and it’ll switch back to the two-deck view.
- Expanded exporting features – The process for track prep has been made similar to your typical rekordbox computer experience on Mac or Windows. You can play file types including WAV, FLAC, ALAC, MP3, and AAC, as well as edit track info, use Beat Jump and Manual Loop, and more.
The app is available for for a free download via the Google Play store, and is supported for Android OS 9, 10, and 11.
