Engineering & Performance Innovations

Powered by a dedicated, multi-core internal processor, the SC5000 runs ‘Engine Prime.’ This latest version of Denon DJ’s music librarian software is onboard the unit, offering you direct access and and convenient performance features, so you can be at your creative best. The SC5000 doesn’t stand in the way of your creativity—it works with you and gets out of the way!

Unique on the SC5000 is its bank of eight multifunction trigger pads that deliver unprecedented creative expression for your hot-cues, loops, slices and roll playback – all safely locked down by the SC5000’s insanely accurate beatgrid analysis. Up to four SC5000 Players can be LAN networked for synchronized data transfer between units, plus you get enhanced BPM and FX possibilities using ‘Engine Connect’ protocol to work with Denon DJ’s new X1800 Prime, 4-Channel mixer.

Customizable DJ Tech

Once a USB drive or SD card is inserted, the SC5000 remembers any previously entered DJ preferences, ensuring that from within the ‘Engine Prime’ eco-system, the unit recalls every one of your performance preferences and settings. This includes any previously performed track cue points, loop regions, playback history, preparation folders and of course any live, on-the-fly, track analysis. Like we said, the SC5000 works with you and gets out of the way!

Visual customization is highlighted by your choice of main primary colors for the SC5000 Prime’s 8-inch (touch-capacitive) jog-wheel LEDs, in addition to using your own DJ brand logo or selected track artwork on the beautiful central display.

ENGINE PRIME MUSIC ANALYSIS & MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE

Engine Prime

Entirely new and written from the ground up, Engine Prime is Music Analysis and Management software for optimizing your music library, file navigation and playback experience on Denon DJ’s SC5000 Prime media players. Supporting both Mac and Windows operating systems, Engine Prime is power-packed for fast and easy database creation, full integration with iTunes and Serato DJ collections plus advanced track editing and performance customization. Full support as well for all popular compressed and lossless music file formats, including FLAC.

Import & Analyze

Once your tracks are imported, Engine Prime performs incredibly accurate beatgrid placement, calculating the song’s harmonic musical key (displayed in either Camelot or traditional style), plus it brings in track artwork, BPM and all other metadata. The tri-color, high-definition waveforms are accompanied by a full track overview, helping you to easily add quantized hot-cues in addition to (manual and auto) loop regions along the timeline.

Create & Organize

Engine Prime empowers you with a fast, easy method of creating your own custom Playlists and Crates, to match your DJ style and performance workflow. Even if your digital music library is pretty much limitless, Engine Prime can help you fine-tune and organize by genres, styles, dates, moods and tempo’s etc.—putting you back in control to simply play and have fun!

iTunes and Serato Collections

So you’ve spent months, maybe years making iTunes playlists—and perhaps as much time creating hundreds of hot-cues in Serato DJ? Fear not! Engine Prime has your back. With full iTunes and Serato DJ integration, you can choose to synchronize (and continually update) those precious iTunes playlists, plus when adding your Serato DJ files, Engine Prime imports those all-important hot-cues you’ve labored long and hard over.

Edit & Customize

Engine Prime is a comprehensive offline editor for your digital tunes. Beatgrids can be edited or adjusted easily and with the ability to add custom names (and colors) to both hot-cues and loop regions, with any downtime spent productively prepping those memorable moments in your live gigs that follow. Once you’ve created your custom collection, export to either SD card or USB thumb drive, plug into the Denon DJ SC5000 and you’re sonically armed and ready to rock the dancefloor!
