They can keep yesterdays way of djing to themselves. They don't even mention VDJ in their pathetic starting menu, just Pioneer, Serato and Traktor. I'll pay attention when they start selling mp4.

Some info from the comments:

Beatport LINK: $14.99/mo, 128kbps AAC, 0 offline tracks.
Beatport LINK PRO: $39.99/mo, 256kbps AAC, 50 offline tracks.
Beatport LINK PRO+: $59.99/mo, 256kbps AAC, 100 offline tracks.

I'm not crazy about 256 AAC but I guess it's pretty close to 320 KBPS LAME.

It's pricey at the top tier.



That’s crazy just to “rent” tracks?!?!

No Thanks, I’d rather spend that buying the tracks so I can keep them forever.....

If you have online access, you would have a much greater selection. The offline tracks are in case you lose wi-fi.

However, if VDJ's implementation of BL is like their SoundCloud one, then

1. you will not be able to use the tracks professionally
2. you will limited to a couple hundred online tracks too

The devil is in the details which we don't have yet.

thanks for sharing this even it's AAC 128 is a dealbreaker i got a 30 day trial and will analize that bit rate . I wonder what cut producers get from beatporty pro

Oh wow, that's a surprise. The info I read yesterday was saying it's $14.99 (no mention of other tiers) and that you could cache tracks.

So you only get low bitrate files and no offline mode - unless you are prepared to take the big jump up to the next tier.

That will put a lot of people off. The professional working club DJ shouldn't have an issue with it though. They'd spend a lot more than that per month on buying stuff.

I won't be using it, as they're too niche. Unlike Pulselocker they don't cover pop and chart music.

Ouch, that pricing does suck. Deezer and Amazon MP3 FTW for me
