GUI and hardware in harmony

rekordbox dj’s GUI is perfectly matched with the layout of hardware, including the new DDJ-RR and DDJ-RB, to give the most effortless, intuitive software performances yet. The FX, waveform, players, sampler and browser mirror the hardware exactly, and you can choose from a 2/4-deck horizontal or vertical view.

Split-screen for enhanced browsing

  • Split the GUI into 2 screens – one for browsing and the other for the performance features.

  • Add pre-set and personalised tags with a single click, and use them to refine searches and find tracks quickly.

  • View up to 5 playlists simultaneously to move tracks between them more intuitively.

  • Select track characteristics, e.g. key, BPM or genre, to view other tracks with similar characteristics. Plus, use the Match feature to assess this against well-matched mixes you've already performed.

  • Bookmark playlists and playlist folders to easily find tracks even within complex sets of folders.

  • Load a sample sequence onto a deck to scratch it and manipulate the sound as if it were a track.
