SoundCloud Announces Partnerships With Native Instruments, Serato DJ and more for live mixing directly from Soundcloud’s catalog.
This is the first time ever that DJ, via their mixing software will have access to the biggest collection of music in the world.
“Until recently, digital workflows for DJs were limited to downloads and physical media, but streaming workflows are the future. SoundCloud is committed to empowering creators with the best tools and resources to grow their careers, which is why we are excited to partner with these leading companies to help DJs take their workflow to the next level. Through these partnerships, DJs will have the largest, most diverse streaming music catalog ever assembled instantly accessible within the tools they use every day.” – Kerry Trainor, Chief Executive Officer, SoundCloud.
To support this brand new feature, Soundcloud has also announced that Soundcloud Go+ now support the high quality streaming at AAC 256 kbps. Subscribers can opt-in to high-quality streaming by going to their SoundCloud settings under “streaming quality.”
SoundCloud Go+ gives listeners access to 190 million tracks from more than 20 million creators around the world, with offline sync, no advertising, and high-quality audio streaming–all for $9.99/€9.99 per month.
Unfortunately, Soundcloud Go is only available in a small number of countries: Australia, USA, UK, Ireland, France, New Zealand, Canada, Germany, and the Netherlands. We hope that his new tools for DJs can kick off the rollout of Soundcloud Go, at least, in the entire European Union.
Integrations with Native Instruments, Virtual DJ, DEX3, Mixvibes, and Hercules will begin rolling out in 2019, with the Serato integration rolling out in a forthcoming release. Details regarding each integration will be announced at a later date.
