I’ve always hoped Denon would have a stronger presence in the DJ world, especially after the In Music take over. I’ve had various gear through the years and I’ve always dreamt of a stand alone system. The Prime 4 was or should be a killer, I haven’t tried it because 4 channels is over kill. However, I did try the the Prime 2 but I wanted the portabilty of the Prime Go. I don’t know why all three systems couldn’t be battery powered. Any I now find myself with a Prime Go and it suits my needs almost perfectly. I’ll thank you Denon for that. As for software it’s shocking. I want to manage my music in one system and I can’t. I want smart play list and smart crates. I don’t want to use Rekordbox or Serato or some other software. First off I had problem transfer my Rekordbox play list over fully intact. Rekordbox, handles my large collection built up over years and does it very well. Engine can analyse tracks much faster but what’s the point in speed if most of the beat grids are off. I’ve streamed lined my collection down to the bear minimum of around 66K of tracks. I transfered around 10k of tracks into a main crate with the Intention of creating play list within the Prime Go on the fly. No such luck! I’ve found the tracks won’t load in to a deck. The Prime Go reboots when I try to load a deck. I have to drop track in to a prep list to play them, so that shows the files are fine so I’m baffled why they won’t play from the crate.
Denon so much needs sorting out. Time is money for you and we the DJ’s but we don’t have investors backing us
So, would you believe it. I write this post and bingo the drive or should I say the Go starts working as it should. May be they needed to get acquainted, go out for meal or something but it seems they’re working together. Still things need to work much better and faster @DenonDJ
