Introducing Engine DJ 2.0, a defining milestone in the ever-evolving evolution of software-driven solutions for DJs. 2.0 brings a wealth of new features, stability and performance updates giving DJs a more powerful, creative and reliable experience.
Engine DJ (OS) Highlights
Engine Lighting by SoundSwitch - Automatically sync music with DMX and Philips Hue lights. The dedicated Engine Lighting GUI provides on-the-fly control for various lighting FX, all via the touchscreen.
Ableton Link Compatibility - Easily sync tempo with external hardware both over wired and wireless networks.
New Database - The database in 2.0 has been completely rebuilt to provide accelerated browsing, lightning-fast song analysis, enhanced system stability, and a significantly smaller database size.
Updated User Interface – The 2.0 interface has been redesigned to provide a more intuitive and creative workflow. The layout and location of controls have remained mostly the same, but several visual adjustments have been made to improve the overall user experience.
New Playlists – Playlist and Crates are now combined into a single comprehensive list (Playlists), taking along with it the best
aspects of both list types. Packed tracks from removable drives no longer show as duplicates in the home collection.
Playlist Deck – Users can now assign a deck as a Playlist Player, providing continuous playback with automated cross-fading. The cross-fade time can be adjusted in the Control Center settings menu. Playlist Deck is available for Prime 4, Prime 2, and Prime GO.
New Onboard Clock – The new onboard clock offers automatic time zone syncing and aids in providing detailed History lists with the played track start time. All information subject to change denondj.com
Play History Upgrades – History lists from connected drives are now automatically added to the home collection and can be viewed from the new History tab without the drive connected. History lists also include the Start Time of when the track was played on an Engine OS device and can be easily imported as Playlists via right-click.
Streaming Service Upgrades – Streaming services have been expanded with track list preview, prepare list inclusion, and continuous playback with cross-fading via the Playlist Deck.
Denon DJ Prime 2 in the most powerful 2-deck, standalone DJ system available. Like all Denon DJ Prime Series devices the Prime 2 is powered by Engine OS ensuring lighting fast response with WiFi enabled music streaming without the need for a laptop. Designed and engineered for professional mobile, club and event DJs, Prime 2 is your essential DJ workhorse.
Touch Your Music
The central 7-inch touchscreen provides a high-definition, multi-gesture experience, just like using a smartphone or tablet. Navigate music collections, finger-swipe to load tracks, instantly search large music libraries and even rearrange your playlists and songs straight from the screen. Both vertical and horizontal waveform views are available to suit your preference and 'needle-drop' searching of a track is just a touch away. PRIME 2’s ‘Track Preview’ feature is accessed via the touchscreen allowing for pre-load auditioning of a song with no risk of accidently playing it to the crowd.
Access and play your digital music via the 3 x USB and 1 x SD inputs or install a drive in the internal 2.5-inch HDD bay for large terabyte music collections. Recording is covered too as Prime 2 is able to record directly to any connected media source, even the one you’re playing from. Any changes to track hot-cues, loops and performance preferences are also saved to your source media drive for instant recall at a later gig.
Standalone Music Streaming - Anywhere
Using your mobile data or either a venue’s WiFi or wired internet connection, you can stream music from TIDAL with its catalogue of over 60+ million songs just using PRIME 2 and with no laptop needed. Never be caught out again for that elusive song request having literally the world’s music, exclusive playlists and curated content at your fingertips! More streaming partners will be available soon.
Pristine Audio – Powerful Connectivity
PRIME 2 features Denon DJ’s renowned 24-bit/48kHz pristine audio quality and enough rear panel pro-connectivity to cover everything from a house party, a mobile gig, club or even mainstage event. Add PRIME 2’s StagelinQ connection into the mix and you’ll be ready for creating easy and dynamic lighting and video shows with SoundSwitch and Resolume control.
Craft Your Mix
PRIME 2 has all the creative, hands-on features and power you’d need for any style of DJing, including 2 (100mm) line faders, contour controlled crossfader and 6-inch capacitive touch jog-wheels with HD colour displays (showing song/DJ artwork plus loop/track status info). With expressive 3-band EQ, you can shape and blend your mix to sonic perfection then take the music into another dimension using PRIME 2’s dual-FX modules (visualised on the main 7-inch display) plus Filter control for added audio manipulation. With your media player, tablet or phone, add a third music source into your live show using PRIME 2’s dedicated RCA Auxiliary audio input.
Take Your Sounds Further
PRIME 2 will inspire even the most dextrous and creative energies inside your DJing mind. It brings 8, ultra-responsive trigger pads (per channel) for hot-cue juggling, loops, beat roll and slicing plus a class-leading timestretch and key shift/sync feature to radically change a songs tempo and musical key – ‘Open-Format’ DJing just got a whole lot more exciting, and easier!
Powered by ENGINE OS

With continuous firmware upgrades keeping you empowered with the newest, forward-thinking features, ENGINE OS will keep your music flowing expressively.
