Beatport Link announces New Partnership: VirtualDJ
Beatport LINK, which is available now to trial free for 30 days, allows DJs to stream Beatport’s catalog of over six million tracks directly into DJ performance software. LINK has been designed to complement the core digital download store, and provide an additional revenue source for labels, artists and suppliers.
Subscribers of Beatport LINK PRO and Beatport LINK PRO+ have access to offline locker storage of 50 or 100 tracks, streaming audio quality higher than 320 Kbps Mp3, access to Beatport LINK Playlists, and the ability to search the entire catalog with DJ performance software.
In the next leap forward, Virtual DJ 2020 will integrate with Beatport LINK, allowing users the ability to create their own Beatport LINK playlists, and edit those playlists on the fly for seamless switching and swapping tracks, mid-set.
Both Beatport LINK PRO and Beatport LINK PRO+ are available with a 30 day free trial, and instructions on how to use Beatport LINK in Virtual DJ can be found here.
Beatport’s CEO, Robb McDaniels, commented, “With over 100,000,000 downloads, Virtual DJ is the most widely used DJ software in the world. We couldn’t be more excited to add this large and passionate community to the rapidly expanding Beatport LINK ecosystem.” Beatport LINK is currently also available in Pioneer DJ’s rekordbox and Pioneer DJ’s free WeDJ app on iOS. Further integrations with other leading brands are coming later this year.
