Creativity is Redefined with Engine 2.0 Software Update!

Engine 2.0 brings a new world to the DJ experience...

By | Published 14.10.21

Engine OS has a habit of being related to world-firsts - and the Engine 2.0 update is no exception. Upon launch, Engine DJ’s OS was the original operating system to support DJ hardware directly, and now with 2.0, it’s the world’s first software to support Wireless Ableton Link and Engine Lighting!

Featured across Denon DJ’s powerhouse PRIME series, featuring the SC6000, SC6000M, Prime 4, and Prime 2, Engine DJ OS 2.0 is truly set to change the DJ performance world.

Onboard Lighting Control – Engine Lighting

When SoundSwitch was introduced, DJs were opened to another level of immersion with the ability to automate their lighting shows and rigs into their setups. From Mobile DJs and live streamers, to those looking to start their lighting journey - SoundSwitch offers an accessible, affordable addition to enhance any DJ’s performance.

With Engine DJ’s OS 2.0, you can take this level of accessibility one giant step further with Engine Lighting. Engine Lighting is an OS embedded solution accessible directly on the DJ hardware to control lighting – no laptop required.

Let us repeat:

NO laptop required!

Mobile DJs using DMX can use the onboard lighting control, while home users can link directly with their Phillips Hue system. Controlling lighting in a DJ set up has never been easier!

World’s First - Wireless Ableton Link

Engine OS powers some of the most powerful standalone DJ controllers in the world including Denon DJ SC6000, SC6000M, Prime 4, and Prime 2. So why not further strengthen standalone capabilities?

OS 2.0 now includes Ableton LINK protocol for all Engine DJ OS compatible devices via Wi-Fi or wired connection. These devices are the world’s first standalone DJ hardware units are now able to use Ableton LINK to communicate wirelessly, opening a whole new world of creative possibilities for live performances.

All New Database

The most noticeable update in 2.0 is the interface and user experience, which has been redesigned and reimagined to give DJs a faster, more intuitive workflow. However, it’s under the hood where the most impactful changes can be found!

Both platforms have had completely new database code written from the ground up, giving each platform new possibilities. Coming directly from users, file analysis is even faster, searching is quicker, database sizes are smaller, and stability is even more improved.

This new database gives both Engine DJ OS and Desktop amore reliable, faster, flexible foundation that will continue to ever-evolve.
