You can now mix SoundCloud tracks directly from your Denon DJ hardware

Tired of carrying your laptop around or searching for your USB at the end of the night? Well now you can travel light and worry-free because Denon DJ is the first-ever hardware partner to join SoundCloud’s growing roster of DJ integrations — making SoundCloud’s massive catalog available to the majority of DJs around the world. 

With Denon DJ and a SoundCloud Go+ account, you can start mixing with SoundCloud’s 200 million-plus tracks directly from your hardware. Here’s how to get started: 

  1. First, make sure you have a stable Wi-Fi connection.
  2. Use Denon’s touchscreen interface to log in to your hardware with a SoundCloud Go+ account.
  3. You’ll be shown a pairing code on your screen that you need to enter here via web to activate your device and confirm authentication.
  4. Your saved playlists will import automatically and you can search, mix and stream from SoundCloud’s massive catalog on the fly — while utilizing the full suite of Denon DJ’s performance tools.

Pro tip: Create “crates” on your SoundCloud account that you can access from any Wi-Fi-connected Engine OS-powered Denon DJ device.

In addition to accessing this growing list of DJ integrations, SoundCloud Go+ gives you offline and ad-free listening to SoundCloud’s entire catalog and the ability to stream in high-quality audio. A Go+ subscription supports creators — when you subscribe, you financially support the millions of artists who are starting and growing their careers on SoundCloud.
