  • Rekordbox 5.1 Lyric and 5.2 Lighting

    Instead of just one Rekordbox DJ announcement today, Pioneer DJ has two. Rekordbox 5.1 is out later today, while Rekordbox 5.2 is set to launch in mid-February. In 5.1, users will have access to a new (paid) Plus pack, Lyric, that generates lyric-based videos for Rekordbox video. The 5.2 release is more dramatic - it adds new phrase analysis-based DMX lighting control to Rekordbox DJ.
