Denon DJ Virtual demo

Introducing the Denon DJ Prime 2 - a compact and portable all in one DJ system. 

Based on the ground breaking Prime 4, the Denon DJ Prime 2 has many of the same, popular features in a more mobile friendly form factor.

Engine OS 2.0 now includes some major updates:

New look user interface

Built in lighting control for Philips Hue and DMX lighting with SoundSwitch.

Run your DMX lightshow directly from the Prime 4 once you have syncronised with SoundSwitch. You can also sync Philips Hue lights with the Prime 2 with no software or programming required.

New database structure with faster access, searching, analysis etc.

The database in 2.0 has been completely rebuilt to provide accelerated browsing, lightning-fast song analysis, enhanced system stability, and a significantly smaller database size. These new under the hood adjustments offer the user a streamlined experience when managing, browsing, and playing the music they love.

Ableton Link Compatibility

Users can now sync tempo with external hardware using Ableton Link over both wired and wireless networks. Once Ableton Link has been enabled, an orange link icon will be shown in the top right of the toolbar providing the number of linked devices, sync lead tempo, and phase meter showing the current beat position. When synced, the tempo will match the tempo of the longest playing device. The lead tempo can be adjusted from any device and all other linked devices will automatically follow.

Playlist Deck

Users can now assign a deck as a Playlist Player providing continuous playback with automated crossfading. The crossfade time can be adjusted in the Control Center settings menu. Playlist Deck is available for Prime 4, Prime 2, and Prime GO.

Previous Engine updates include:

Adds support for BeatPort Link and SoundCloud GO+ streaming services, improved BPM analysis, recording of the mic channel and ability to adjust the gate settings for each mic input.

The new quick source menu lets you load different sources on to either deck so you can mix between USB and SD, Tidal to Soundcloud, SD to Beatport and more.

Support for Dropbox linking to access tracks in your personal cloud storage from anywhere.

Support for Beatsource LINK streaming service

Track preview: listen to a track without having to load it to a deck.

Reads variable beatgrids prepared in Engine Prime 1.6.

Prime 4 is now fully supported by Virtual DJ 2021 with a Pro license. Browse tracks, trigger samples, control stems and stream directly from the software. No setup required yet huge customisation possible with the comprehensive setup options.

Free 3 months soundcloud go+

The player controls have 6 inch touch capacitive jog wheels with built in display to show the track artwork and information, as well as the 8 performance pads, 100mm pitch slider and dedicated loop control. Each deck has its own FX controls with 14 onboard effects to chose from.

The two channel mixer features 3 band EQ as well as filters for each channel, easy to use track browsing with the large dial and losing buttons or use the 7 inch multi touch screen.

Way better than the XDJ RX2!

Stop what you're doing, cancel that Pioneer XDJ RX2 purchase and listen in! Having used a Pioneer XDJ RX2 at various parties I was absolutely dead set on getting one and selling my old Numark NDX 900'S and M6 mixer. I loved the fact it was all in one, portable and to own my first piece of Pioneer gear was a tasty prospect. Then a sound technician friend suggested Denon gear and I had a look, the Prime 2 is comparable in layout, up on features and down on price, it was like £300 cheaper. The pots feel quality, the pitch sliders have a nice throw to them and the platters feel great. The fact you can put your own logo in the middle adds to the professional feel! The screen, although not as big as the Prime 4 is crystal clear and sharp, the qwerty keyboard is so handy for searching for the perfect track and the ability to make playlists on the fly and organise by camelot key is great. The unit is made of metal and strong plastic and feels very high quality to use, higher quality than the XDJ RX2. Unanalysed tracks are scanned, loaded and analysed ridiculously quick, I didn't even analyse my USB for about a week because I didn't need to. All in all its a great unit, the Engine Prime software has some kinks but once you work them out it's a good program for organising and analysing. A lot of my DJ friends who play out on Pioneer are now converted to the Denon range, it's better value and more innovative and they really enjoy using this. The Pioneer units seem old compared to this, from track analysis to features and workflow.

What can I say about this, apart from its amazing! Very easy to set up, guide books are brilliant, engine prime is easy to set up and use, itís easy to to transfer your music from any platform. The controller is the most solid Iíve used, great quality all round and very easy to use again.It streams music straight to the unit, a massive bonus. You donít need to spend mega money on a laptop and controller now. This kit is awesome. If you have reservations, donít, you wonít be disappointed. Worth every penny.

Perfect Compliment To The Prime 4

With my laptops going end of life, I had to look at a solution to act as a backup unit to my Prime 4. As I already use Engine Prime, the Prime 2 was a perfect fit for my need. Without any additional transfers of music I can easily add an internal SSD and use my existing USB SSD drives as back ups to easily swap from the Prime 2 and Prime 4. The Prime 2 layout is slightly different to the Prime 2 due to it's size but this really does pack in a lot of features for the money. You wont get better than this for value considering its a controller and laptop player in one unit. One outstanding feature is the needle drop and pre-play feature which the Prime 4 does not have (yet). As ever were great with handling the order and delivered on day of release :-)

Great Bit of Kit

Lovely bit of kit and very very happy with itÖ 😁😁😁😁 Iíve had many Denon Units over the years and love the build quality and ease of use. A great feature is that when youíve played a tune it turns the listing to green (memorises whatever USB/Memory Card you use) and stays like this until you physically switch off the unit (resets!) The only negative thing I can say is that the Xtra USB ports are on the back which make it a bit of a mission when working and figuring out all the features as the Instructions donít tell you too much! Hopefully Denon will realise this from feedback and sort these minor things out.. 🙏🏻👍🏻

Excellent upgrade

So obviously at the time of purchase and review we were still not allowed to get folk dancing so this is based on my time learning it's functions at home at use at 1 wedding fair. I had already bought an SSD to put in it before purchase so this was ready to go as soon as delivered, I found the software easy to navigate on the touch screen and after a few Google/YouTube searches the setting up of playlists and continuous play was ideal for the fair (and for future weddings during the meal).

Denon Prime 2

Unbelievable cracking service. What a mean DJ player this is!!!!!! So glad I choose the Prime 2, quality product. Had a XDJ RX a couple of years ago and I think Pioneer need to watch the opposition. So easy to use, and took my old Rekordbox USB straight away. Very happy and once again delivers top notch again. Thanks guys.

Prime 2 and broken software.

The prime 2 unit is a nice bit of kit but the software for "Prime-Engine" 1.5.2 is a complete let down in my opinion. after spending days getting used to the file structure which is complicated and not very well explained. I find that playlists disappear when trying to sync between laptop and and the prime 2 unit. And Denon are now saying they want you to use a Dropbox service to get it working in a fashion.

Quality piece of kit!!

As part of the development of my business I have now upgraded to this beast of a deck, its been a long time coming!! The Prime 2 is an all in one unit that allows both static and streaming audio and comes with a great range of options and tools. I am still going through the instruction manual to get the best out of this unit. For a mobile DJ this is a great unit to have, I would certainly recommend it.

What a great piece of kit! Pioneer who?

What a great piece of kit this is. Took the jump from having Pioneer CDJ 800s and 400 mixer as outdated. Decided to go with the Denon Prime 2 over the XDJ RX2 or XDJ RR because this thing basically out does in and more in every category regarding tech and functions. I know Pioneer gear is regarded industry standard but getting this will not affect your ability to use use pioneer all in on controllers or pioneer CDJ Nexus series. Would recommend to anyone who needs a home set up.
