Pioneer DJ just announced a new version of its Rekordbox music management software. Now at version 4.2.0b, the latest update is a patch that fixes issues with Rekordbox 4.2.0, which was released just over a week ago, including an error that caused the software to crash when used with a CDJ/XDJ player via Pro DJ Link.
Rekordbox 4.2.0 introduced the new Rekordbox Video add-on, which lets users mix with video and images. It was launched in conjunction with Pioneer DJ’s new flagship DDJ-RZX multimedia controller, which comes with three onboard touchscreen displays that show track data, waveforms, and videos.
For those of you who updated to Rekordbox 4.2.0 and have been having problems, this is the fix you’ve been waiting for. If you’ve not updated yet, you may want to sit tight and wait for any more errors to be reported before you install the latest 4.2.0b update, just to be safe.
• Rekordbox 4.2.0b is now available as a free download. Check the Rekordbox site for more details.
