Introducing DJM-REC App by Pioneer DJ

Introducing DJM-REC App by Pioneer DJ. Pioneer has just released a DJM-REC app for iPhone and iPad, which allows DJs to record and share high quality DJ mixes. The DJM-REC app can also be used for live streaming. It is very easy to operate. This app is however not available on android on other platforms.


  • This app is easy to setup and very flexible. Just install the app on your iPhone or iPad. Plug in the the USB cable into any DJM series mixer/Pioneer compatible devices. Using the digital send/return (usually on the top panel of the mixer).
  • The sound quality is phenomenal. This app gives you full control of the peak limiter in your DJM mixer. It also eliminates digital clipping with the tap of a button. Audio also can be recorded into a digital format via digital mixer hence completely getting rid of analog conversion.
  • With this app, live-streaming is super easy on all social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook Live, Periscope, Instagram and Snapchat. You can also get your mix uploaded and stored to cloud service such as Mixcloud and Dropbox.
  • You can easily create track-lists, with the fader information sent from the DJM mixer to the App via editable track time stamps.
  • Remix old tracks with high-quality  club-standard sound that can be easily remastered. Swipe the Loudness slider on DJM-REC to increase audio pressure and smoothly adjust the Sub Bass slider to create punchy, heavy, vibrant bass sounds.
  • Recorded sound on your iPhone or iPad can be input into DJM series mixers using the digital send/return feature.
