Thanks to Pioneer DJ it will now be a hell of a lot easier to record DJ sets on your iPhone or iPad. With the DJM-REC, and any of the company’s compatible DJM mixers equipped with a send/return feature, you can record a live mix using a USB cable.
The app can also work as a simple live-stream tool, letting you broadcast over YouTube, Facebook Live, Periscope, Instagram and Snapchat. The recorded mix (a WAV file) can be quickly uploaded to MixCloud, SoundCloud and Dropbox.
The small catch is that the DJM-REC is only compatible with some of Pioneer’s mixers. The very least you’ll have to fork out is $US699 for the DJM-450 if you’re not fortunate enough to already have the right mixer.
At the moment the DJM-REC is only available on the US App Store, but watch this space — it’ll be a lifesaver for DJs who forget their portable recorder.
