- Denon DJ Prime 2
The Prime 2 DJ Controller
Denon DJ is a company that has been designing and manufacturing audio equipment for more than 30 years. They have always focused on the needs of both professional DJs and music enthusiasts, so it should come as no surprise that they are releasing their latest innovation: the Denon DJ Prime 2 a step up from the smaller Prime Go. This state-of-the-art device features two decks, a built in mixer with four channels, eight performance pads for track selection and FX control, USB ports to connect your laptop or phone to play tracks from other sources such as Spotify or iTunes, an internal sound card to save you money on external sound cards, 3 inch full color touch screen interface with intuitive graphics user interface (GUI), one year free subscription of Serato DJ Pro Plus included, and lots of other features.
The first thing you will notice is that this device is huge, but it's not just a big slab with some buttons. The Denon Dj Prime 2 has been designed to look good in any setup; whether you are playing at home or out on the road performing for crowds. There are two decks (one per side) so there is never any need to worry about switching from deck A to B if one song finishes while your finger was pressing pause on deck B. To load tracks onto each deck all you have to do is press "load" which brings up an intuitive search feature where you can type in keywords then select them by sliding left/right or tapping on them.
The Dj PRIME 2 is powered by Engine OS and has been designed for use for professional Mobile, Club and Event DJs in mind. As a 2-deck standalone smart DJ console goes, it sure crams in a lot, including negating the need for a laptop computer.
