I checked out Beatsource and decided to sign up for a 30 day free trial. I liked it because it said you don't have to have a internet connection and it goes way back. Not just to a lot of the garbage of today but I found a song by The Temptations called Stay and I looked up James Brown. There it was. It said on each song add. I will get with my partner to find out how to add songs I don't have to my HD. If I like it I will be using it at gigs where I get a request for a song I don't have to play at the event.

Evidently you don't understand what you're doing .. if you do not stay with Beatsource, you must remove any and all tracks that you obtained / received from them. It's a free trial .. not free music.

I understand clearly. It's a trial to get you hooked on their service. Many companies do that. Just like for example cable companies give you a discount price to get you hooked and later on the price goes up. By that time they normally know most people won't cancel the service. I've known some that keep switching from one service to another to get the special deals they have. Just need to find out when it says add, how to add a song to my HD.

When you click add, you're generally going to be adding the song to a playlist that you are creating. So you may need to start by creating a playlist first.

You also need to make sure you enable Beatsource in your DJ Software.

Then to download the file for offline use, you drag the song to your "Beatlocker"

This is how it works with Serato, I don't know about VDJ:

I assume (I don't know) that offline storage of Beatsource downloads may be rights managed. If so, you will need an active login or subscription key in order for your DJ software to load and play them. It's possible the files you download will not be accessible when the free trial expires
