Today, Beatport and Denon DJ have officially launched the long-anticipated Beatport LINK integration with all Engine OS products.

With an upgrade to Denon DJ Engine OS v1.5, Denon users can access Beatport LINK’s streaming service via Wi-Fi directly from their Denon DJ hardware — no computer or USB stick needed.

That means DJs can play nearly any track from Beatport’s entire catalogue directly through their Denon DJ gear running Engine OS, including all of Beatport’s charts and playlists, as well as from their own LINK playlists. Beatport LINK also provides Engine OS with BPM and key info, so DJs can see critical track information while browsing for tracks in Engine OS without first loading or analyzing. By providing beatgrid, waveform overview, and other performance data, a DJ can perform any track instantly upon placing it in their deck.

Engine OS v1.5 also features a new BPM detection algorithm, a new Quick Source Menu for faster music source switching, new microphone capabilities for Smart Consoles, as well as a number of additional usability improvements and stability enhancements, for near limitless performance possibilities.

Denon DJ Engine OS-powered products include SC6000, SC6000M, SC5000, SC5000M, PRIME 4, PRIME 2, and PRIME GO.

Additional software and hardware integrations as well as some new exciting features are expected to be rolled out throughout the remainder of 2020 and into 2021.
