Highlights of v1.6 are as follows: Dropbox Personal Cloud Integration (Engine PRIME, Engine OS) Adding to its industry-leading standalone streaming capabilities, Engine OS takes one step further, giving DJs access to their music collections on Dropbox. DJs can now sync their Engine PRIME collection to Dropbox and then access it remotely on any Engine OS device from anywhere in the world. DJs can also access Dropbox music folders directly on Engine OS hardware without having to use Engine PRIME. Both workflows offer Engine users free access to their music stored in Dropbox.

To celebrate this integration, Dropbox and Denon DJ are giving all Engine OS users a free 6-month 25GB space boost. Register your Engine OS product today (denondj.com/register) to unlock this exclusive promotion. For more info on Dropbox and their storage plans visit: www.dropbox.com.

Beatsource LINK Streaming Service (Engine OS) Music streaming for open format DJs has arrived with Beatsource LINK. Working with top record labels and pro DJs around the world, Beatsource LINK provides a variety of music and playlists curated specifically for open format DJs. From any Engine OS device, DJs can browse, search, and play Beatsource LINK’s extensive collection without the need for a computer. As with all streaming services, performance data such as BPM, Key, Hot Cues, and Loops are saved to the DJ’s source drive and instantly recalled the next time the track is loaded.

Flexible Beat Grids (Engine PRIME, Engine OS)
Engine PRIME v1.6 now has the ability to manually create dynamic beat grids for songs with multiple BPMs. Users can now place various tempo anchors to assign BPM values to different sections of the song. This functionality is essential for transition or multi-genre tracks that have intentional tempo changes. Engine OS devices running v1.6 automatically detect tracks with flexible beat grids and apply BPM changes to keep everything in perfect sync.

Dual-Waveform View for Layers (SC5000/M, SC6000/M)
One of the most innovative and powerful features of the PRIME Series media players is the ability to play two tracks from a single deck. Engine OS 1.6 features a brand new stacked waveform view that makes mixing between layers easier than ever. DJs can now see Track Info boxes, performance pad feedback, and two horizontal moving waveforms for each layer, all available in a single view.

Track Preview (Engine PRIME, Engine OS)
The ability to preview a track directly from the library is now available for all Engine OS devices including the PRIME 4. DJs can tap the album artwork from the tracklist to quickly preview without having to load the track first. Additionally, users can tap across the track title to ‘needle-drop’ audition different sections of the song. This is an immense time saver when browsing for the next song, especially in the most critical moments of the mix. In addition, v1.6 brings the following notable enhancements:

  • Added Retrigger option for Saved Loops
  • Various rekordbox import improvements including retaining Hot Cue colour, importing Hot Cue Loops as Loops, and retaining Date Added field (Engine PRIME)
  • Improved collection navigation behaviour & double tap to load

Download and full release notes are available on the Official Denon DJ Website. “The ability to access and play music from your own personal storage cloud has never been possible on a standalone media player, until now,’’ said Jason Stout, Product Marketing Manager for Engine DJ. He added, “Our Development team anticipated this day through thoughtful product designs and we’re delighted that we’re able to provide these new capabilities as free updates to our users.”
