Denon DJ Prime 2 is a 2-deck, standalone smart DJ controller with Wi-Fi connectivity. It’s designed and engineered for professional mobile, club and event DJs. Powered by Engine OS, this portable DJ controller doesn’t require a laptop. Its powerful processor can analyze music files internally, and on the fly. The Prime 2 features a 7" multi-touch, multi-gesture screen, extensive media source connectivity, 6" jog wheels with color display, plus expressive EQ, FX and creative workflow controls.

Prime 2's 7" touchscreen gives you a high-definition, multi-gesture experience, just like using a smartphone or tablet. Navigate your collection, finger-swipe to load tracks, instantly search through large music libraries and even rearrange your playlists and songs easily just on the screen itself. Change things up by flipping your waveform playback view from vertical to horizontal and also select and monitor a number of other essential DJ work ow features at the touch of a finger. Via the touchscreen you can also access Prime 2's Track Preview feature, for pre-load auditioning of a song and needle-drop searching through its timeline.

Access and play your digital music via the 3 x USB and 1 x SD inputs and even large terabyte music collections using Prime 2's built-in internal 2.5" HDD bay. Want to record your DJ set for an important gig? No problem—Prime 2 has you covered, able to record directly to any connected media source, even the one you’re playing from. Any changes to track hot-cues, loops and performance preferences are also saved to your source media drive for instant recall at a later gig.

Using your mobile data or either a venue’s Wi-Fi or wired internet connection, you can stream music from TIDAL with its catalog of over 60+ million songs just using Prime 2 and with no laptop needed. Never be caught out again for that elusive song request

Prime 2 features Denon DJ’s renowned 24-bit/48kHz pristine audio quality and enough pro-level connectivity to cover everything from a house party, a mobile gig, club or even mainstage event. Add Prime 2's StagelinQ connection into the mix and you’ll be ready for creating easy and dynamic lighting and video shows with SoundSwitch and Resolume control.

Prime 2 has all the creative, hands-on features and power you’ll need for any style of DJing. It features two 100 mm line faders, a contour-controlled crossfader and 6" capacitive touch jog wheels with HD color displays. Each center on-jog display shows track artwork and critical track information. With filter control and expressive 3-band EQ, you can shape and blend your mix to sonic perfection then take the music into another dimension using Prime 2's dual-FX modules, which are visualized on the main. With your media player, tablet or phone, add a third music source into your live show using Prime 2's dedicated RCA Auxiliary audio input.

The Denon DJ Prime 2 controller features eight tactile trigger pads per channel. These ultraresponsive pads let you actuate hot cues, loops, beat roll and slicing. A class-leading timestretch and key shift/sync feature lets you radically change a song's tempo and musical key. This feature makes open-format DJ sets a lot more exciting, and easier to accomplish.

Thanks to two independent level-controlled microphone channels, you won’t have to sacrifice either of your line level faders at events where you’re using microphones. Each mic channel features XLR/TRS 1/4" combo inputs. Double-up with a dedicated emcee or bring that enthusiastic bride or party animal into the show with the handy talk-over feature. Prime 2 has both a mini and full-size headphone jack input too.

Prime 2 has Denon DJ's ENGINE OS under the hood to take care of lightning-fast operations during your DJ performance. With continuous firmware upgrades keeping you empowered with the newest, forward-thinking features, ENGINE OS will keep your music flowing expressively. ENGINE PRIME librarian software (Mac/PC) is your music library and set preparation tool which syncs your other music collections, including iTunes, Serato DJ, Traktor and rekordbox. Using just Prime 2, you can also import a full rekordbox collection direct from a media source, internally analyzed (including playlists, hot cues and loops) within the unit itself—all without a laptop.
