I just want to add my voice to others calling for Engine to actually monitor and update folders. I don’t want to have to manually drag everything from a folder to a crate, when the crate could just be linked to and refresh the content from the folder.
I really want to love this laptop free performing, but some things seem so much more difficult and probably shouldn’t be. Prior to using the SC5000s, I’d just connect my drive with my newly added tracks and hit refresh. Boom, all the new music in my library is where it belongs, shows up in a search, etc. Having that functionality in the library management software would be at least one step closer to meeting the convenience of DJ software solutions.
Another thing that isn’t so much a feature request, but under the hood performance issue. Prime is super slow when you rename tracks. My workstation at home that I use it on is a souped up computer 4K video editing workstation, all high performance SSDs, 64gb ram, gobs of processing and video power. Yet if I change the name of a song in Prime, it takes it like 5 seconds or more to update. At first I had my music on my media server, which is connected via 2 Gigabit network connections to my router, and it was slow. I blamed the server, and moved everything to an internal SSD. Turns out, something in Engine Prime just makes file renaming a time consuming task.
