Newest version enables direct import of NI Traktor playlists, instant-doubles, enhanced BPM analysis, custom music organization and the ability to transfer significantly larger libraries across Prime network.

Cumberland RI, USA (June 18, 2018)—Denon DJ, a leading manufacturer of premium DJ products and solutions, today announced that it has released their new V1.2 firmware update for the SC5000 Prime media player and Engine Prime music management system. The new V1.2 release adds dramatically greater capability and flexibility to an already cutting-edge system, delivering a DJ experience unequaled in its ability to quickly import, access and organize music in any way imaginable.

Highlights of the new V1.2 Update are as follows:

Import Native Instruments Traktor playlists, songs, loops & cue points
Giving a “laptop free, Traktor experience,” this new feature makes the user’s painstakingly curated NI Traktor collection directly accessible within Engine Prime v1.2. A quick and easy Traktor NML export makes it simple to elegantly place Traktor playlists, songs, hot cues and loops at the DJs fingertips in readiness for selected collection export to the SC5000.

Instant Double tracks between & within SC5000 players
A favored and essential performance feature for turntablists and scratch DJs, the new ‘instant doubles’ feature duplicates the current playing track at an identical timeline position on a 2nd networked player, or same unit’s 2nd layer

Enhanced BPM analysis range & downbeat detection
This brings a wider range of tempo (BPM) tracks and music genres into an enhanced analysis environment (from hip-hop to drum ‘n bass) in one selectable range. Improved downbeat detection makes sure Engine Prime catches the first downbeat of a DJ’s songs even more accurately.

Increased Playlist management options
The DJ’s music collection can be organized and exported for playing on the SC5000 with more customizable arrangement, navigation and workflow options for not only playlists, but crates too.

Larger Drives/Collections across network
DJs can pack significantly larger music collections without limits, now accessing their content quickly and more efficiently across a group of networked SC5000s.

Immediate Track Cue/Play on analyze
DJs can now perform instant cue-plus-play operations, in addition to the SC5000’s ability to analyze any track’s metadata inside the unit.

“This V1.2 SC5000 and Engine Prime update has added multi-layered creative and professional performance options for our #PrimeTribe DJs,” said Paul Dakeyne, Director of Creative and Brand Marketing for Denon DJ. He added, “ The ability to directly import Native Instruments Traktor playlists, ‘instant-double’ tracks effortlessly, the enhanced BPM capabilities and music library organization options create exciting new possibilities of workflow and performance for Prime DJs.”
