Track Section/Phrase Analysis

The main addition to integrating rekordbox is being able to see the different sections of a track.

Rekordbox detects verses, choruses, breakdowns, bridges etc (you can also manually mark them in rekordbox). These markings are imported into DJ.Studio, and are displayed clearly on the timeline, with colored sections for each part of the arrangement.

Using these cue markers makes it super easy to rapidly arrange songs at the perfect moment.
