Rekord Buddy 2.0, the Mac software that lets you sync your track collection, playlists, cue points, and metadata among Traktor, Rekordbox, and Serato DJ, is now in public beta. To register, you’ve got to purchase the app (US$54.99), which will get you the beta version as well as the final full release when it goes live. There’s no actual release date for the final version at the time of this writing.
We reviewed the original Rekord Buddy app over two years ago, and found it to be a useful tool for those wanting to migrate from Traktor to Rekordbox, with Rekordbox being just a music library organiser at the time. Now that it’s a full-on digital DJ solution and with Pioneer DJ creating new gear specifically for Rekordbox DJ, the Rekord Buddy 2.0 beta couldn’t have come at a better time.
