Engine DJ 2.0 Engine – the latest and greatest
The latest firmware update is here, bringing with it onboard lighting control for standalone devices, wireless Ableton Link connectivity and a whole host more! With every update, your Denon hardware evolves and with Engine DJ 2.0 you’re at the forefront of DJ technology. The OS 2.0 engine now includes Ableton Link connectivity for all Engine DJ OS compatible devices – available via WiFi or a wired connection. This makes Denon the world’s first manufacturer to incorporate Ableton Link into standalone DJ hardware.
Building on the success of SoundSwitch, Denon have created their own custom lighting control in the form of ‘Engine Lighting’. This new OS embedded lighting control is accessible directly from your hardware, eliminating the need for external controllers or connecting to a computer. You can connect to the onboard lighting control via DMX for DJs on the move or via the Phillips Hue System if you’re at home.
The new and improved database has been recoded from the ground up, providing a lightning-fast workflow, smaller database sizes and improved stability. The control for streaming services has also been expanded with Preview, Prepare, History and Playlist Deck parameters you can use to audition and navigate between songs in your online music library.
What's new in Engine DJ 2.2
Continually seeking to improve the user experience and functionality of your performances, Engine DJ 2.2 introduces a range of new features and fixes to the most powerful DJ software available. Introducing Active Loops, an intelligent way to save loops and automatically activate them when your playhead enters the loop region, allowing you to recall your favourite sections in an instant. As simple as pressing hold your left Parameter button and saving to a pad, it couldn't be easier to instantly recall your Active Loops. More accurate performing is enabled through the increased Jog Wheel sensitivity, with a reduced sensitivity level named 'Min'. Perfect for intricate performances, this can be saved as a default setting to your Engine DJ device for automatic loading along with Nudge sensitivity in your User Profile.
Now featuring a built-in metronome with three volume levels, you can map the beats of your songs with even more accuracy, with the metronome playing every time your playhead passes a beat marker. Improved light arrangements are possible through the ability to invert pan and tilt your moving head DMX light fixtures in the Engine Lightning section of your software. By no means the complete list, Engine 2.2 features several fixes to loading and operating times as well as small bugs in the system. A comprehensive breakdown of what's included in this free upgrade can be found on the Engine DJ website.
