I’m VERY happy to say I’m loving my MCX8000 more after the updates to Engine Prime. For the first time, I went TOTALLY standalone for a gig last night and the night went flawless! From what I have noticed so far, the BPM’s are on par with my Serato Library. I did have several tracks that the BPM was incorrect in Prime, but it was also incorrect in Serato. This was something that I didn’t notice until after the export to USB.
THE BIG QUESTION: How do you update a track that has already been exported to your USB?
HERE’S THE ANSWER: This process will capture all edits and revisions to a file (BPM, Metadata)
REMOVE THE FILE FROM YOUR USB: In Engine Prime, go to the DEVICES window, on your USB find the file to be edited, RIGHT CLICK the file and and choose ‘Remove From Collection’. Do this for each file that you will be changing.
Run ‘EXPORT TO MCX8000’ (this will remove the file information from your USB).
Drag the file back to the USB drive
Make the necessary edits to the file.
Run the ‘EXPORT TO MCX8000’
The edits will be saved to your USB and appear when you load it onto your MCX8000.
This process has worked for me and hopefully for you too.
Big thanks to the DENON DJ for working hard to get this right. I can now say that the MCX8000 IS A GREAT STANDALONE player. It doesn’t have all the ‘bell and whistles’ of a Prime 4 has but it is a bonafide option if you want ot play without a laptop. #ChangeYourRider
