Pioneer Rekordbox gets new AI vocal cues

The latest update introduces auto playlist uploads and a clever new feature to help you avoid vocal clashes.

Rekordbox

Just six weeks after the announcement of Rekordbox 6, Pioneer have announced a minor update to their DJ software.

Alongside various minor tweaks, including the ability to automatically sync playlists across multiple devices, the update introduces a new AI-based feature to identify and display vocals in track waveforms. Displays will now give visual feedback on when vocals occur in tracks, helping you to plan ahead when mixing and avoid clashing vocals, or simply to time vocal drops more effectively.

Pioneer explain:

Vocal Position Detection – new algorithm with AI tech displays the positions of vocals

Never crash a vocal again. The industry-first music analysis algorithm in rekordbox, developed in partnership with Qosmo, uses deep learning to detect where vocals occur in each track. With a high level of accuracy, rekordbox ver. 6.0.1 displays the positions of the vocals on the entire waveform or the enlarged waveform so you’ll know when they’re going to drop – giving you an extra weapon when planning your mix.

Rekordbox 6.0.1 is compatible with all current Pioneer controllers and media players.
