PRIME 4 launched with a 2/4 deck vertical view giving DJs an intuitive way to see their tracks playing. An update swiftly followed expanding this to toggle between vertical and horizontal and now Engine DJ has added 2 new views giving DJs more ways to monitor their mix.
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.
