Engine Prime V1.2.1 Update (with MCX8000 support)


#1

Dear Engine Prime users we are excited to announce the launch of V1.2.1 today!

Engine Prime Software Update 1.2.1:

New Features:

  • MCX8000 DB export support. Engine Prime now supports one directional database conversions to legacy MCX8000 format.
  • Playlists are now re-arrangeable.
  • iTunes, Traktor and Serato parent crates/folders are now draggable to the Collection.
  • Serato playlists now show up in their original Serato order.
  • iTunes and Serato library import speed is now faster.
  • Importing tracks that have artwork is now faster.
  • Album art now takes up less space in the database. All new tracks added to the database will take advantage of this. To apply this improvement to all tracks, select all track in the main collection and then right click and select Re-import track information.
  • Loop controls now default to Auto / Jump for quicker navigation through tracks.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where searching could end up only searching within the previous search results.
  • Fixed an issue where packed track information could not be resynced to the main collection.
  • Improved stability of importing files.
  • Fixed an issue where importing a Serato library that contains files on external drives would create a useless Engine Prime library on the root of the system drive (Win only).
  • Misc improvements and fixes.

Is it necessary to delete old database?

Does Serato Import speed increase with time?

Like when one needs to do an incremental update of recently added tracks to Serato

Or is it still all or none? Engine Prime does an entire Serato library purge prior to updating crates and tracks.

I started a refresh at 20:02 and just 1/3rd done. 63k tracks in Serato library. It’s 22:14 now.

The Serato Library refresh took about 6 hours btw.

Hellow guys, i´m making tests but someting just don´t work fine. I prepare a music list place it in engine prime latest version 1.2.1, make analyses, than creat a CRATE , create a PLAYLIST, move all to usb disk, it´s fine formated in fat32, is small one only 32gb. My MCX8k is updated with firmware 2.0. when i goint to use usb in engine mode. Nothing was showed in my mcx. no CRATES no PLAYLIST. i just can acess the files when i chose folders and search for the file. but no information about the track no BMP no samples no cue no waveform.

Whats the cause for that?

Did you click the “Export to MCX8000” button?

Please watch my video here for the complete preparation process.

Did you enable MCX compatibility in the Prime options and convert the DB?

This is a new step as explained in the video that’s in the MCX8000 firmware release thread.

finally everything works but I do not understand why if I create a playlist on the usb keeps me the order, instead in the crates I see the tracks in alphabetical order instead of in the order of the playlist?
