Question: What if an artist's music is available on Spotify but not on Pulselocker?

Also: To utilize this with something like Spotify, I would have to pay for a Spotify Premium Account $9.99, Pay another $19.99 for the Pulselocker Professional, and also $4.50 or $3.00 for Soundiiz, per month? Thats a minimum $33.00 per month before tax.

This is peanuts compared to how much we spend on actual music to own from multiple record pools, retail, & other music outlets.

DJ A Live is right. A DJay who has Spotify is not willing to spend additional 20 $ for Pulselocker.

The better solution is that Serato support Spotify as Algorithm DJay Pro and Virtual DJ does and push Spotify to offer a DJ licencing Model similar to Pulselocker.

Serato already has a Spotify app for iPhone and know how to integrate Spotify.

Better? yes. Solution? Not even close. It is not a solution because it is not possible. Neither Djay Pro nor VDJ have licenses for commercial use so in theory a professional DJ should not be willing to go this route. Keep in mind neither offer support to play music saved to the computer's HDD which Pulselocker DOES offer. Furthermore VDJ does not actually offer support for Spotify they merely hack onto the system. Further research can get you up to speed with this if it is something you'd like to farther pursue.

A.) Again not licensed for public (commercial) use
B.) Again does not offer offline music support
C.) Is for iOS only.


Do NOT get me wrong I would personally love to see Spotify support but I will not sit here and say Pulselocker is not effective. There have been MASSIVE improvements with the search features as well as availability and the way results are displayed. If there are specific issues with Pulselocker by all means let it out. We can discuss them one by one if need be. Again $20 or $10 a month is nothing compared to what we make and if you do not see the value in this I am afraid none of this matters anyways. A fraction of the monthly expenses of record pools and streaming solutions etc.

At the end of the day keep in mind Serato is a speed bump when compared to Spotify and there is just not enough gain for Spotify and MUCH to lose when weighing out changes to their policy and let there be no confusion it is indeed Spotify's policy that is preventing this from becoming a reality.

Is it possibile to buy Pulselocker for just one month, convert all playlists d musicand after that use serato with the local converte songs?
deejdave 10:01 PM - 1 September, 2017
I think you are mistaking the word "convert" for the word download. To answer what you are meaning to ask though obviously you can not pay for one month, download all the music you want and keep it forever. Why would anyone keep paying if this were possible. If you pay for one month you can however use all the music you would like both streaming and downloaded locally for the month you paid for assuming you purchased the Pro tier.
