​Pioneer DJ launches app that lets you record mixes directly to your phone

Pioneer DJ has just launched a new app that allows DJs to
record live mixes directly to their iPhone or iPad.

The app, which is called DJM-REC, records the mix by using a
USB cable linked to any of the company’s DJM-series mixers
equipped with the send/return feature.

This new tool is particularly useful for DJs who have
experienced clipping in their recordings, as DJM-REC controls
the peak limiter in the DJ mixer to minimise clipping and
distortion rather than needing to be done manually on the
recording device.

Another useful function is that DJM-REC allows users to live
stream directly to YouTube, Facebook Live, Periscope, Instagram
and Snapchat. It also gives users the ability to upload a high
quality .WAV file to Mixcloud, SoundCloud and Dropbox.

All that being said, the app is only compatible with digital
send-return equipped DJ mixers. A DJ will have to be using the
DJM-TOUR1, DJM-900NXS2, DJM-750MK2 or DJM-450 for the app to

Download the app for free via the App Store now to use the app
for a 30-day free trial before the price goes up to $9.99. Find
