Forget about Engine 1.5 completely.
Use Engine Prime.
You have two options
- Option A (The Manual Way)
Open Virtual DJ and Engine Prime side by side, see if you can drag your crates/playlist from VDJ to EP.
You may need to manually create the crates in Engine Prime.
Eg if you have a crate called “Top 40” in Virtual DJ, Make a crate in EP with the same name.
Copy the contents (drag) of VDJ Top 40 to EP Top 40.
Rinse and repeat till you are satisfied.
Everytime you had new tracks to VDJ you will need to repeat the steps so that engine prime can see the songs.
With that said, you will not have hot cues, loops that were created in virtual DJ in EP with that method. You will have to do all that again manually.
- Option B (Automated way & Mac Only)
You can look into using a third party app to do this as well. Use Google to search for “dj conversion utility”. Its a swiss army tool that can help.
This should transfer your cue points, loops, …not sure about beatgrid.

You may want to start a feature request if there is none already, requesting Virtual DJ support for Engine Prime.
Please search the forum first to see if such requests is already live.
Last lastly, you need two apps for the process
