Beatport LINK - a new subscription music streaming service for DJs
Beatport LINK is a monthly music streaming subscription for DJs, similar integration than Soundcloud and Tidal in Serato.
Beatport LINK put's Beatport's extensive electronic music catalog available to stream audio (AAC 128kbps and 256 kbps quality) into their Pro DJ software platforms of choice.
Users can test new tracks with their existing collection and save the tracks in a locker or purchase the tracks they want to keep for offline use. In addition, they can use the features provided by their software and hardware setups (ie. effects).
This product is intended to audition music and complement to professional/club use. If the user wants to DJ in the club he can use the offline locker plan or alternatively purchase the file (purchasing of the files is encouraged to ensure stability as in this type of environment isn't consistently reliable).
There are three plans available which are;
1. Beatport LINK: 128 kbps AAC for $14,99/month with no offline locker
2. Beatport LINK PRO: 256 kbps AAC for $39,99/month with a offline locker limited to 50 tracks
3. Beatport LINK PRO+: 256 kbps AAC for $59,99/month with a offline locker limited to 100 tracks
Additionally the full Beatport CLOUD service is included in Beatport LINK subscriptions which unlocks unlimited re-downloads of previously purchased music and greater control of track previews with a needle drop feature.
This is a huge development from Beatport, which is one we are excited to see how it develops.
