Since Denon DJ announced the 6000 series of players and a refresh of the mixer, are we going to see a vast improvement in Engine Prime to accompany the new players? They’re nice, they’re shiny, they’re probably amazing considering the hardware has always been amazing, but there’s no point in getting excited for these players if the software is still lagging far behind its competition. We still need:
-Better beat grid analysis -Flexible beat grids -Better library organization -Ability to organize crates how we want -RGB waveforms (preference) -A better phase meter (preference) -Smart crates -Better GUI, especially when moving Playlist around
I like new hardware, but it’s meaningless without good software. You’re three years into Engine Prime and the competition is still leaving you in the dust. Put your focus elsewhere.
