Engine Prime 1.5 Update Adds New Sync Manager and BPM Detection
Today Engine DJ software announced its largest feature release to date, Engine Prime 1.5. As a free and recommended update for current Engine Prime users, v1.5 adds new Sync Manager, BPM detection algorithm, track preview, and batch editing for track metadata. The latest features are meant to help DJs spend less time preparing music and more time in the mix. Read about the new features below.
With the new Sync Manager feature, you can now select multiple crates and playlists to export to any connected media device with a single click. This makes transferring music simple and fast. Sync Manager also shows you how much space is needed for a transfer, as well as the amount of space you have available on the device.
Additionally, performance data such as hot cues, loops, and beat grid changes made on Denon DJ Engine OS hardware can be synced back to the Engine Prime collection.
BPM Detection Algorithm
Engine Prime 1.5 features a brand new BPM detection algorithm that analyzes music faster and more accurately than in previous versions. It’s important to note that for existing Engine Prime users, your tracks will need to be reanalyzed in v1.5 to use the new BPM and downbeat algorithm.
The track list in v1.5 features a new column for quickly previewing tracks without loading them to the deck. Track preview playback is activated just by 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 1.5 can now be done to multiple tracks simultaneously. You can 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.
Engine Prime 1.5 also adds other enhancements such as improved beat grid editing and user preference support for the Denon DJ SC6000/M, Prime 2, and Prime GO. With a new website dedicated to Engine DJ software, we’re excited to see if Engine Prime may be coming soon to other hardware outside of Denon DJ products. Perhaps we’ll see the software brought into other brands under the InMusic umbrella, such as Numark and Rane.
