Next up, I have to pay a subscription login to use a mixer.
Software only works with web sign-in.. WHY?
REKORDBOX can now only be used after web-sign in. WHY??
What if you don't have internet but need to load tracks on your usb? What if you live in a country where internet is crappy, or you have to go to a cyber-shop because that's the only internet available in your island?
ANSWER: The monopolisation of market and making proprietary software "closed", so everyone has to pay, not only for the CDJ devices, but also for monthly subscriptions.
REMINDER: The software worked before recent versions, no need to sign in... why does it need that now then? Its obvs not a tech problem, it's a monopoly privatisation move. This issue is so important that Pioneer makes software not work/useless if not online or paying for subscription... to make up for profits. It's not enough to have +95% of the market in CDJ use and around 50% on mixer gear, nooo sir.... they need total control, online login, monthly subscription. Otherwise, sorry, computer says NO. This is the company's moves, that's what DJ's and enthusiasts that buy Pioneer's gear deserve. The consumer deserves more consumerism, more taxation.
You always had to login with your account to use rekordbox.
Which mixer do you have?
