I’m SLOWLY getting all my music over to an Engine Prime external SSD, but I have to say it is quite a chore.
I’m mainly a Hip Hop/R&B DJ but really open format. The BPM’s can range from 55 to 130 for the vast majority of my collection.
When selecting update Serato Library, I noticed (After the fact) that many crates did not come over and did not have existing music in them.
On import crates, many of the crates just don’t fill in with music. I really only notice this when trying to find certain songs on the unit itself and noticing they are missing from the normal crates.
I’ve had to go through and manually compare all crates with the number of songs to make sure.
However, EVEN MORE TROUBLING… some songs have completely the wrong BPM on them, not double or half as standard .
Get it on the floor, DMX should be approx 95 BPM, whereas EP is recognizing it at 62.79 for some reason.
At the Club, Jacquees ft. Dej Loaf should be 92 or so, EP is showing 61.33.
Now when I’m on the P4 and sorting my songs by BPM, they can’t be found to put in the mixes at those BPM’s.
I can’t find a way around this issue, other than connecting drive back to a computer, searching for the song, Manually editing the BPM and trying to edit the grid.
Denon, I know this is a topic request as well but can you at least put TAP TEMPO on the unit in the next firmware update.
Now I’m not confident about finding the songs that took so long to curate with the correct BPM and Keys.
Both Mac and PC 2 TB Samsung SSD formatted in exfat. Serato (main software) Mixed in Key and Platinum notes.
