Feature Requests - What would You like to see?



Yeah ! Denon DJ are really slow ! 8 months to make the future firmware update 1.04 for the SC5000 ! i read that Engine prime update & X1800/SC5000 are coming in june… but the forum are quiet with low interaction, it’s not a good thing in my opinion


It is getting ridiculous. But we are promised by Paul that june would be definitly awesome on the update side. And since it is almost mid june, i feel like cartman waiting for the new wii. Still much pleased with the hardware but the support on updates for basic reliability and fixes on the Library issues for example are way below expectations by now. Sad.


Agree - the players are fine, but the Engine Prime software is very buggy. It’s infuriating to use!

Surely smaller, more incremental updates could have been rolled out?


I’m curious. If you four think the SC5000 is fine as it is, why are you posting in this thread? Do you believe Denon spending resources improving the SC5000 firmware may be delaying improvements to the Engine Prime analysis software that your require?


So are you saying, I have to have a feature request to post in this thread? Fine here is my request. I request to have updates at a steady rate for the hardware and the software and since there seem to be a lack of updates and only promises. I now consider updates for the prime series as a feature.


I suppose they have to update both hardware firmware and engine prime software simultaneously especially if they add some new features to Engine Prime…SC5000 has to know how to translate those new extras.

  1. Can Denon please allow/enable/improve the Engine Prime software to use music stored on HFS formatted external hard drive. I don’t understand the limitation. I tried the recommended ExFat it’s just too slow on Mac and inefficient compared to a cloned HFS copy.

  2. Proper flexible dynamic beatgrid with keyboard shortcuts that makes sense. Hybrid of Serato + Rekordboxdj beatgrid editor will be a killer feature.


Idea: Toggle Cover Art

This is more for the desktop software than the players, but here it goes. Make it an option whether or not cover art is added to the EP database. This way someone like me, who uses a fixed logo on the centre screens, isn’t adding a lot of extra bulk to the database file for no reason.



Generally cover art should be stored in the tag of the file, so shouldn’t impact the database size at all.


Since you have already talked about creating a new crate on the fly by saving the prep list, I would like to add one feature:

it would be great if one could move tracks up and down in prep list. That way one could sort them after putting together a new “crate”. I would really love this feature as it is much easier this way then adding every track in the right order and starting all over if you want to swap out a song at the beginning! Maybe an extra field in front of the tracks only seen in the prep list which allows you to move the tracks by holding down the field and going up/down with your finger.


I thought that too, but I remember reading somewhere around here that cover art had an impact on the database size. Hopefully just something I misread or misunderstood!


Instead of the Momentary/Trigger setting for the Hot Cues in the settings, perhaps have two modes for the hot cue button.


Any ideas how to implement that on-the-fly? The shift+hot cue appropriately deletes it. If you can think of a good way to do it, the setting for it could simply flip-flop the default.


Bluetooth (=RF) is already onboard, so the hardware already exists. In principle any Bluetooth remote (even a $3,50 selfie-keychain) could be used as a remote control for these players.


Shift+performance pad deletes the hot cue. I’m talking about the Hot Cue button itself. It could flip flop the default, similar to how the Loop button has two modes.
