This year’s NAMM was dominated by Denon DJ’s Prime product launch. Alongside their three products Denon also announced an updated version of the existing Engine software. However owners of the MCX8000 controller found themselves being concerned about what this recent launch meant for them.
Owners of Denon DJ's flagship MCX8000 controller now need not worry about being left behind as the company develops new software for its latest SC5000 prime media player. This reassurance follows the company being rather quiet among MCX8000 owners since the Engine Prime software was announced as not compatible with the Engine software version that their units use.
Those who were worried about Denon DJ's announcements in regards to its new Engine Prime platform would mean that MCX8000 owners would not get much-hoped for improvements to their software and Paul Dekeyne, Denon DJ product manager released this statement:
“We want to reassure our loyal and invested Denon DJ MCX8000 users that we are absolutely continuing to support this product. Engine’ desktop software is currently being updated by our Development Team to incorporate DJ performance features, plus the music-management workflow capabilities of ‘Engine Prime’.
This recent statement seems to indicate that Denon DJ is planning to develop Engine the MCX8000 and Engine Prime for its "pro booth" equipment line.
