Denon DJ Releases Engine 1.5 Software with New MCX8000

By  | 

Denon DJ has introduced the latest version of its Engine music management software with the rollout of the 1.5 version of the desktop utility.

The 1.5 update is optimized for use with Denon DJ’s new MCX8000 player/controller, but users with SC3900 and SC2900 media players can also take advantage of the software. Engine is equipped with a database creation function and can directly import Serato DJ hotcues, allowing for efficient music organization.


Look below for the key features of Engine 1.5.

Color Waveforms

High-resolution color waveforms, based on the frequency content of the music. Low/mid/high-frequency slices are drawn in Red/Green/Blue. This helps to visually identify the percussive elements and other sonic frequencies inside the music.

Key Filtering

Filters a collection by the Key information stored in the track’s metadata. DJs can select multiple Key signatures along with a BPM range to build crates and playlists that sound great together.

Serato DJ Hotcue Support

Users now have the ability to import Serato DJ hotcues from existing Serato DJ database by dragging any track with stored hotcue data from Serato DJ to the Engine Library DJs can then use these tracks with hotcues in standalone mode without a laptop computer!
