Beat Navigator Pro is a cheeky add-on extension for Google Chrome that can save you a lot of money on Beatport Pro music purchases. Aside from pulling data like tempo, song key (in standard, Traktor, and Camelot notation), and track length,and boasting a built-in two-channel mixer (for figuring out if songs mix well together before buying them), this extension takes advantage of the fact that many songs are in the Beatport catalogue more than once.
If you frequent Beatport Pro a lot to purchase tracks for your DJ library, you’ve probably noticed that some songs are more expensive than others, especially if they’re new releases. What Beat Navigator Pro does is it checks if those tracks are available at a lower price (usually as a previous release), which can save you cash down the line.
As this is a Google Chrome extension, the only downside, of course, is that you can’t use it if you aren’t using Google Chrome (or if you don’t shop at Beatport).
• Beat Navigator Pro is available now at the Chrome Web Store. Find out more details at the Beat Navigator Pro website.
