Denon DJ Prime Series

Denon DJ isn’t one to rest on its laurels. Taking feedback from its ever-growing community of Prime users, Denon DJ has just released Engine PRIME V1.5.0.

This update is focused on making your Denon DJ PRIME machine and Engine PRIME software the most efficient combo since Run-DMC and Adidas. So, how has this been achieved?

Watch this video, and read on to find out more.

Sync Manager

Transferring music to a media device is both simple and fast thanks to the new Sync Manager feature.

The Sync Manager window enables users to select multiple Crates and Playlists to export to any connected media device with a single click. It also indicates the space needed for the selected Crates or Playlists, as well as the available space for the selected media device.

Performance data such as hot cues, loops, and beat grid changes made on Denon DJ Engine OS hardware can also be synced back to the Engine PRIME collection.

New BPM Detection Algorithm

Engine Prime V.5’s new BPM Detection algorithm is lightning fast. Plus, it gives the most accurate results in Engine PRIME’s entire history.

This new algorithm has been built from the ground up. V1.5 gives users both BPM and beat grid downbeat placement that are the most accurate representation of their music possible. When this is combined with the new Track Preview feature (see below for more), this is truly the fastest and most complete version of PRIME to date.

Track Preview

Wouldn’t it be great if you could effortlessly preview tracks when managing and preparing music?

 In v1.5, Engine PRIME now features a new column for quickly previewing tracks without loading them to the deck. Activated by just clicking on the overview waveform in the track list, the preview waveform column is scalable and provides hot cue markers to help users quickly identify tracks that have already been prepared.

Metadata Batch Edit

Editing track metadata information in Engine PRIME v1.5 can now be done to multiple tracks simultaneously. Users can now select a group of tracks for editing, click the field that needs updating, and apply that change to all selected tracks. Batch editing from the track list is intuitive and a big time-saver when it comes to tidying up various sized music collections.

These are just the highlights to this huge Engine PRIME updated from Denon DJ. For the full release notes, consult Denon DJ’s website, and then make your Prime hardware the most efficient and high-speed machine yet.
