Don’t put music on the netbook, use usb stick plugged into players. Engine is designed to be used (when linked with players) as a display, not as a poor man’s DJ software in HID mode.

i totally agree about “no dj software”

but if you use an usb-stick in one of the players engine will not display BPM etc. an YES , on the stick is a target database. hint?

Hallo,

Is Engine 1.5.2 working on windows 7 ? On the box of the MCX8000 and website there is written that engine is working with windows 8.1 and 10, so not with 7 …

What’s the difference ? Is it working ? Anybody that can give me support please ?

Engine is only used to prepare an usb stick with music for example or do you use it like serato ?

Kind regards !!!

Have you tried setting the filters in Engine? I can see on videos on YouTube they have this view: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gINt6CxEf9A


#6

seems to me that in the YT-vid not the target-database is in use?


#7

Can anybody confirm Engine runs on Windows 7?

  • and if not that is my criteria to buy a Denon Controller or not - as im not intersted in putting Windows 10.

Why do you think they don’t use Engine prepped usb stick in the video? When I look at the video from 11:00 he scrolls through his playlists.

I’m running engine on windows 8.1 and I have crashes all the time, too. I don’t see a reason why I should put the files on a usb drive. Searching for tracks on the PC so much better than using the tiny screen of the sc3900. Plus I haven’t even got to prepare a drive since engine crashes every few minutes analysing the files.

What I don’t understand is that there was a time when engine worked just fine. It was a few years ago when version 1.5 wasn’t released. It sure was not the best software, but al least it worked. I then upgraded to 1.5. still no problems. Now after taking a break from djing and reinstalling windows on my PC it’s all broken.

You do know you can put files on usb stick on players AND use Engine on laptop & ipad for browsing & loading those files instead of the tiny player screens?


#11

I’ll try it out, but it still means that I need 2 weeks to analyse all my files and it’s nor clear weather engine will crash less this way

I run Engine on a Windows 7 PC (64bit) and it works… like the rest sometimes it freezes (whenI work fast importing songs or so) but when I wait it always works again.
