I have a gig tonight in a bar, and the only equipment they have there is an MCX8000 controller.
I’ve spent this week finding out what that is and how it works, have downloaded Engine Prime and copied all my playlists over from Rekordbox and formatted my stick and put it all on. Should be good to go, right?
I saw that the MCX8000 is only compatible with an Engine Prime formatted stick from firmware 2.0 onwards. So I asked the bar if they’ve updated the firmware since 2018 but they don’t know.
So, I’m planning to take the firmware on my stick so I can update the firmware for them and then plug in my stick and play.
MY QUESTION: If I put the firmware in the root directory of the same stick with all of my music on, will that be a problem? Will I still be able to use that stick for playing off afterwards, or would it then only be good for updating the firmware?
Many thanks in advance for any help with this.
