Does Engine 1.5 play AIFF files? I was djing at a small festival over the weekend and I used my 8000 exclusively with Serato. Another performing dj wanted to use it with USB. I told him to prep his USB via Engine 1.5, he is a Rekordbox guy, so he transferred his new tracks (all original productions btw) to a new USB stick.
We popped it in and it says unsupported format. I didn’t have the chance to start checking bit rates and what’s nots I just pulled the stick and he used Serato.
I think engine 1.5 should be culled. Its such an irritating software.
All attention is being given to Prime now to the detriment of 1.5, Denon is putting its eggs in the Prime basket.
And my fear now they might be working on an MK2 8000 or 8000 Prime Controller which will work with the Engine Prime.
There have been no movement in updating Engine 1.5
I wonder what sales/adoption figures are for the new Prime hardware. Controllers are more ubiquitous than decks and they even get good second hand value. I for one have 3 different controllers.
I previously owned CDJs which I sold.
Now I understand how older customers feel. But I’m not mad so long as Serato works with the 8000 then I’m golden.
