Rekordbox DJ software is coming to iOS and Android, meaning DJs will soon be able to plug their DJ controller into their phone or tablet, and DJ from that device rather than using a laptop.

The feature is coming in “early 2023” according to Pioneer DJ, and will definitely work with the DDJ-FLX4 entry level controller, that was announced today. We’d expect it to also work with other recent Pioneer DJ controllers, although at the time of writing do not have confirmation of which ones.
From preparation to performance
The Rekordbox mobile app already allows DJs to audition and prepare music, and is particularly useful when used in conjunction with Dropbox and the Rekordbox Pro cloud music feature, but Rekordbox becoming a fully fledged mobile DJ app is big.

Here are some screenshots of what the new app will look like:
Bye Bye WeDJ?
We assume this will spell the end of Pioneer DJ’s existing beginner-level WeDJ app, which was presented as the app to use with the Pioneer DJ DDJ-200 controller. Presumably, that controller will work with the new app when it arrives.
- This “reveal” was part of the PR for the new DDJ-FLX4, and the screenshots above are from the FLX4 manual. We’ve asked Pioneer DJ for further info – we’ll let you have it as soon as we do.
