From the cool-tools-for-DJs department, the team behind the subscription streaming DJ service Pulselocker has completely redone their application, with a focus on making the experience more streamlined and simpler to use – no more awkward Mac-only native application that stores and syncs tracks. Instead the relaunched service is a standalone application (“Pulselocker Sync”) reminiscent of Dropbox – with even a similar icon that lives in your menu and the status of your “Lockered” tracks.
At the same time, the service’s library has grown significantly – now claiming more than 4 million tracks, and we heard from our contact at Pulselocker that they’ve just signed with a major rights agency (Merlin) that will double their library and give access to loads of missing content.
In terms of price, the plans have been restructured - so $9.99 will get you unlimited on-demand streaming and a 25 track locker / $14.99 for a 75 track locker / $24.99 for 150 track/ $34.99 for 300 and $59.99 for 1000 tracks. Prices are per-month. All tracks are priced at $/€/£ 0.99 for the first 6 weeks after launch.
