So here we go, Pioneer have jumped into the crowded world of DJ software. It looks the same, probably works the same & needs similar equipment. But it’s another option for everyone to endlessly argue over.
In this blogger’s opinion it’s mostly down to ease of use, it’s the possibility of plug & play functionality inside the, ‘standard’ Pioneer, booth environment that’s really interesting. That said both Serato and Traktor have an option for this. Perosnally I’m a Serato user, Traktor is too complicated for my liking and looking at the rekordbox dj website I’d say this is the case here too personally – I’ve had to learn how to use usb’s & cdj’s over the last few years as Serato has prooven hard to plug in for using for an hour in a festival setup. I’d say ease of use is going to win the day here, and staying inside one companies ecosystem might make the transition from studio to booth smoother.
