INPUTS & RECORDING
The Denon DJ Prime GO offers 2 Microphone inputs (connections at the rear panel) and various controls at the top-right panel for both of them. Both Microphone inputs are not part of the USB Audio Interface, and cannot be included in VirtualDJ Audio setup. None of the Mic controls of the device will control mic-related VDJ actions or GUI buttons and vice-versa.
The Prime GO offers an AUX Input (connection at the rear panel) and a AUX LEVEL knob at the top panel to control its level. This input is not part of the USB Audio Interface, so cannot be used in VirtualDJ Audio setup as Line Input or DVS (timecode) input. The signal of this Input will be directly routed to the Master/Booth output.
The signal of this input will be available (and heard to Master output) regardless the mode (Standalone or Engine) the Prime GO will be.
Your mix can be recorded with VirtualDJ, but without the signal of the 2 Microphone Inputs or the AUX input. A future firmware (Engine OS) update may offer a dedicated recording input to include both software Mix and hardware inputs.
The Denon Prime GO can operate either in Computer mode (using VirtualDJ or other supported DJ application), or in Standalone mode using the integrated Engine OS. However there is no back-to-back operation or an easy changeover between the 2 modes, as you will need to "close" one system first, before you "open" the other one.
A smooth transition between the 2 modes can be achieved though. While in Computer mode, you have the ability to connect an auxiliary audio/media source to the AUX Inputs and control its volume with the AUX Level knob at the top panel Then while this source is playing, you can switch from one mode to the other without notice.
