It’s a big day for DJs and their hard drives.
SoundCloud has officially announced DJ software integration from Virtual DJ.
The partnership will make SoundCloud’s catalogue available for high-quality streaming, allowing users to collect and mix tracks directly from the site within Virtual DJ. Currently, the DJ software integration will only be available to SoundCloud Go+ subscribers.
This may seem like a small step, but if successful, it could shift the paradigm for DJing, with streaming now becoming a viable medium—alongside digital and hard copies of music—to spin. The news follows on the heels of the integration of AI-assisted DJ technology for music platforms like Spotify, but allowing users to control how their tracks are mixed could finally convert DJs to streaming.
