Rekordbox 6 and CDJ 350

Does Rekordbox 6 work with CDJ 350s.

 

I have tried it on PC and MAC and can not get Rekordbox 6 to connect to my CDJ 350s.

I have been using version 5 with no issues.

@Joey > The CDJ-350's were released before rekordbox had a performance mode, so they never came with a license, thus the need to buy it if you wanted to use it.

Nobody is taking away your paid software - you are welcome and eligible to continue using anything you already own. If you have a rekordbox 5 license, you can keep rekordbox 5. You're not being forced to upgrade your software OR hardware.

Any software you've purchased was to use that version of the software. If you buy Ableton Live 9, you have to pay again for Ableton Live 10 - you don't get it for free. Same with rekordbox 5 to 6, the only difference is we changed to a subscription model to better serve our customers through updates and new features regularly.

I have just answered my own question. 

Basically Pioneer have decided that people who have supported them from version 1 of the software are no longer important to them, unless they pay a monthly subscription.

I bought Rekordbox when it first came out. We have put up with good and bad builds in the past during the growth of the software. We have put up with pointless features being added alongside some really good things. It just seems that now my hands a being forced to buy new equipment, as you are taking away the basic functionality we purchased the software for. 

All it does is make the Denon range of products look even more inviting.

@Konstantinos > They are, they're just not hardware-unlock devices to activate rekordbox. They were never sold with a license for rekordbox 5, so that functionality is not available free in rekordbox 6 either.

Yeah, i have a monthly subscription in order to use them in performance mode. 
So what should we do in order to use cdj 350 in rekordbox 6?
I ve already cancel my previous subscription, should we get a new one for the newest edition of rekordbox?
