Prime 2 Serato compatibility

Will the prime 2 ever be compatible with serato just like the prime 4 is? I think considering the price for the prime 2 this should definitely be compatible.

You need to ask Serato. It’s the software that need to support the hardware.

Hello, thanks for replying :grin: so is there any way of using any software that is compatible with prime 2 so that I can the decks as a controller to the laptop?

Virtual Dj works with Prime 2 already. But why to add a computer to already great system like that?

And he or she will be told that…they (Serato) are waiting for Denon DJ.

Serato support has always been at Hardware manufacturers request.

And this approach hasn’t changed since launch of Serato Itch and Serato DJ.

I will not be surprised if there are legal implications for supporting a product without explicit consent from the manufacturers. Especially if you are the market leader!

So it’s okay for the Poster to seek information here.

The S7 mixer recently announced is already supported by a new release of Serato.

This is a deliberate and calculated decision by Denon DJ not to bring in Serato for the Prime 2 yet!

All I know is that Denon released an SDK for developers, and Atomix used that to add support for the Prime series.

To me that implies Denon have invited developers to support their products. Serato presumably used said SDK to add support for the P4, so it seems to me that the ball is in Serato’s court.

Like i said in a previous post, this is not Serato’s modus operandi.

They want a seat at the table, get a cheque…

SDK or no SDK

Serato may well want money from Denon before they add support - but it’s still them that have to add it, not Denon.

The original question was:

The answer to which is - the hardware is already “compatible”. Denon “unlocked” the Prime series (expect the Go) for use with software a long time ago.

Simplest solution at this time - use VDJ instead. Use of the software via the Prime screens is better for a start.

So I know it’s possible to link beat port, sound cloud & Tidal via the prime 2 which is great, however it’s not possible to record any of them through the decks so how would you create & record a mix that you are able to put out on social media and show others your work?

Also I have just attempted to use the laptop with the decks and a message has come up saying “The following peripherals did not come online during boot” can some please Help with this?

Buy and download music you intend to use to profit from, even if it is just for exposure on social media. There is a legal reason why you cannot as should not use streaming for that and gigs.

If you now start the console in standalone mode, does it work?

Usually when this message appears it is not good news. Sometimes it is solved with a firmware update (better if done via USB key), other times the console must be sent for repair to Denon technical assistance.
