Denon Prime 4...
Topic: Denon Prime 4 Mapping - Page: 1
I see that Denon Came out with an amazing new product called the Denon Prime 4... I will not purchase unless I know Virtual DJ has done the mapping for it... Could you let me know if this is in process, and what features will not work with virtual.....

The SC5000 have been out for 2 years and still aren't supported so I wouldn't hold my breath.

Besides, the thing was supposed to be available back in March, but as every week goes by, the shipping date slips further and further into the future.
Meanwhile, Pioneer just announced a new controller and BAM! it's in the shops already.

Been very quiet on their forum too from staff. Despite many repeated promises neither Prime or the SC units have had updates to fix some pretty serious bugs.
I love my MCX8000 primarily because it's so good with VDJ but I think I'd be pushed to buy from them again, which is a shame as I have bought their gear since the DN-2000F. Saying that Denon aren't really Denon any more, they have just kept the name like Mini.

I've moved over to Pioneer now. SX2 and RZ controllers. Keeping my eyes and ears open though.
It doesn't matter to me who makes the stuff, if it meets my needs and/or rings my bells then I'll buy it.
The Prime 4 does spark a certain something in me, but being stuck with the small screen and Denon's idea of a GUI is putting me off. I do like being able to change skins in VDJ when I need/want to.

They reallly could have offered a modular or skinnable UI but that's too clever for Denon.

IMO the smaller the screen, the more need there is to have it customizable to the users requirements.
I never got myself a Denon HD2500 because the screen was divided in two. It just made the ability to see artist & track info a nightmare. I got a Numark D2 instead, which used the entire screen. The screens on the Denon HS5500 were better but still a fixed layout and a PITA with titles longer than a couple of words.
If the screen layout was good enough, I would like to have a standalone unit...

The unit can hold a 1tb (or larger) HDD so even it's own software isn't compatible with the unit.
Denon are a big joke just now.

It's still a PITA that both Prime and VDJ databases (and even playlists) aren't transferable.
You have to treat the VDJ side and the engine side as two completely separate collections.

That sounds great! Are Denon working with Atomix on this?
If they are, I was just wondering if they will be adding the ability to import data from the VDJ database (as currently they're stating the usual Serato, Traktor, iTunes, Rekordbox......but no VDJ).

Maybe we're too used to VDJ being well put together but I feel Denon are making a mistake releasing this machine with Prime being so incomplete.
There is absolutely no way I could use that to create libraries for working with every gig.

I used vdj standalone last weekend because EP corrupted my library while updating a few hours before a wedding.
Any updates on when a mapping will be available?

With Denon everything takes months if ever at all so don't hold your breath.
Its a total embarrassment for a once great company to end up like this.
Using their decent hardware with Engine is like buying a Ferrari without an engine. I hardly ever update my memory sticks for the MCX8000 as it's a ballache and Engine keeps crashing..
I too lost an entire database due to corruption and it took days to rebuild it from scratch. I love my MCX but only with VDJ. Engine is unusable.
P. S I saw your post on the Denon forum but I don't sign in and reply any more. If you criticise in any way their staff disguised as Djs give you hell.

They'll eventually catch up to where we are now, but they'll always be years behind.

FYI, Prime 4 will be fully supported in VirtualDJ, including screen and screen-UI customization. However, there is still some road till that moment, so there is really no ETA as we speak.
Any progress to this topic? I'd Love top have VDJ as backup Form my Prime 4.
