Denon Prime 4. Denon DJ Announce XDJ-RX2 Competitor

Denon Prime 4. Denon DJ Announce XDJ-RX2 Competitor

In a clear shot fired to to the Pioneer DJ RX2 Denon DJ has launched the first 4 channel standalone DJ systems will utilise Denon’s Prime Engine software for preparing and performing sets. The music management software is pretty darn powerful, with the ability to import your entire collection from iTunes, Serato DJ Pro, Native Instruments’ Traktor Pro and Rekordbox. This includes your playlists, crates, folders, cue points and loop information within the tracks.

The bonus here is that the Prime 4 will analyse your music data internally, so you can read a waveform and set cues without a laptop in sight. Truly standalone.

Usually a system with this amount of features would be tethered to a (quite powerful) Laptop, speaking of features ........

The Prime 4 will analyse your music data internally, so you can read a waveform and set cues without a laptop in sight. Truly standalone.

In another break from the norm, Denon DJ have made the layout of this system asymmetrical! Previous controllers, such as the MC7000 and MCX8000, featured a layout which mirrored each side; this left the pitch fader placement inverted as well as the play/cue buttons and the loop controls. The Prime 4 doesn’t burden DJs with the issue of hitting the wrong buttons due to unfamiliar placement, as the layout emulates having a pair of standalone decks each side of your mixer.

Denon Prime 4. Denon DJ Announce XDJ-RX2 Competitor

This is clearly Denon DJ’s version of Pioneer DJ’s XDJ-RX2, an exaggerated version. The physical size of the unit is only 9.7kg, so the dimensions are pretty much on par with the XDJ-RX2 give or take 5cm extra depth for the huge screen.
