Denon DJ, a leading manufacturer of premium DJ products and solutions, today announced the introduction of the latest version of its exclusive and revolutionary Engine dynamic music management software. Engine 1.5 is a desktop software utility for managing music files used with Denon DJ media players.

This latest 1.5 version is optimized for use with Denon DJ’s new MCX8000 player/controller, but Engine also supports the Denon DJ SC3900 and SC2900 Media Players. Equipped with a database creation function, Engine 1.5 can import Serato® DJ crates directly. DJs can have confidence that this is an advanced management system that organizes their music efficiently.

Here’s a closer look at some of what makes Engine 1.5 so unique:

Color Waveforms

High-resolution color waveforms, based on the frequency content of the music. Low/mid/high-frequency slices are drawn in Red/Green/Blue. This helps to visually identify the percussive elements and other sonic frequencies inside the music.

Key Filtering

Filters a collection by the Key information stored in the track’s metadata. DJs can select multiple Key signatures along with a BPM range to build crates and playlists that sound great together.


Serato DJ Hotcue Support

Users now have the ability to import Serato DJ hotcues from existing Serato DJ database by dragging any track with stored hotcue data from Serato DJ to the Engine Library DJs can then use these tracks with hotcues in standalone mode without a laptop computer!

Extensive Collection Support

Engine 1.5 supports a massive amount of tracks: up to 100,000 in a single collection. There’s Playlist support for up to 1000 tracks per playlist and crate support for over 500 crates with 7 sub-crates, all in a single Engine Library or Engine Target USB.

Drop the music onto a flash drive [Engine Target]:

DJs can easily drop their lists directly onto their flash drive, just by plugging the flash drive into the MCX8000

“Our latest Engine software is a leap forward in the development of DJ music management,” said Ross Goodwin, Product Manager for Denon DJ. He added, “DJs that are free from the restrictions of a laptop still need to play the right music at the right time to engage directly with their audience. Engine 1.5 delivers that capability and establishes an exciting way for DJs to organize and connect with their music library.”
