Releventful Playlist Management

In Releventful you can allow your clients to select their preferred songs straight from their portal. Once their song selections have been made, you can use our Playlist management tool to create and download the event playlist.

Releventful REMIX® Song Scanner

Releventful REMIX® Song Scanner is a tool that will allow you and all of your employees to scan your entire song library on your laptop or desktop computer.

What does the REMIX® Song Scanner Do?

The REMIX scanner will scan your main song directory (you'll tell us where it is) to get all of the song names and file paths in your song repository.

The REMIX service will then automatically match your client song selections to the songs you have in your song repository to create your M3U playlist files to use in Serato, iTunes or your tool of choice.

What the REMIX Scanner does NOT do

The REMIX scanner will NOT take any files off of your computer.
