The latest Engine DJ release brings two new music streaming services to Engine OS standalone products, giving DJs access to millions of tracks without the need for any physical media or computer.

Engine DJ, a leading developer of cross-platform DJ software solutions, today announced the availability of Engine OS v1.5. In addition to TIDAL, DJs can now access SoundCloud Go+ and Beatport LINK streaming services directly from the hardware. Engine OS v1.5 also adds a new highly accurate 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.

Engine OS v1.5 is available today for users as a free and recommended update.

Highlights of Engine OS v1.5 are as follows:

SoundCloud Go+ Streaming Service

SoundCloud, the world’s largest open audio platform, brings a unique experience to Engine
OS standalone devices, offering the ability to instantly stream and mix SoundCloud’s one-of-
a-kind catalog of over 200 million tracks without the need of a computer. Using a
SoundCloud Go+ subscription, DJs can access their entire SoundCloud library, including
their own tracks and playlists, and liked playlists, albums and tracks from SoundCloud’s
community of over 25 million creators. SoundCloud Go+ offers both regular (128kb/s MP3)
and high quality (256kb/s AAC) playback options. As with all streaming services,
performance data such as BPM, Key, Hot Cues, and Loops are saved to the DJ’s source
drive and instantly recalled the next time the track is loaded. For more info on SoundCloud

Beatport LINK Streaming Service

Widely known as the ‘go to’ source for electronic dance music, Beatport LINK gives DJs
access to over nine million high quality tracks directly from the hardware – no computer
required. Once logged in, users can browse Top 100 playlists, latest tracks by genre, user
playlists and Beatport curated playlists. Beatport LINK provides Engine OS BPM and Key
information directly, which means that users can see vital track information in the list view
when browsing and searching for tracks without having to load/analyze first. Beatport LINK
offers both optimized (128kb/s AAC) and advanced (256kb/s AAC) playback options. As with
all streaming services, performance data such as BPM, Key, Hot Cues, and Loops are
saved to the DJ’s source drive and instantly recalled the next time the track is loaded. For

Note: Beatport Offline Locker support & Beatsource LINK service will come in future

New BPM Detection Algorithm

Built from the ground up, Engine OS 1.5 features a brand-new BPM detection algorithm. The
new analysis process is lightning fast and provides highly accurate results. When analyzing
music on Engine OS devices, users will find both BPM and beat grid downbeat placement
are far more accurate than previous versions. Engine OS enabled devices are still the only
standalone DJ hardware on the market that offer on-board file analysis.
Note: Tracks will need to be analyzed for the first time on a device running Engine OS v1.5
or re-analyzed in Engine PRIME v1.5 to utilize the new BPM and downbeat algorithm.

Quick Source Menu

Switching between music sources has never been easier, thanks to the new Quick Source
Menu. A user can now enable any subscribed streaming service (TIDAL, SoundCloud Go+,
Beatport LINK), connect multiple media devices and easily mix music between the sources
in a single session. The Quick Source Menu can be accessed from both the horizontal
waveform performance and library view on all Engine OS devices.

In addition, v1.5 brings the following notable enhancements:

• Ability to control Microphone Gate Threshold level (PRIME 4)

• Ability to record microphones (PRIME 4, PRIME 2, PRIME GO)

• Ability to disable crossfader (PRIME GO)

• Added Split Cue functionality and the ability to swap Split Cue channels (PRIME GO)

“DJs have never had access to such a vast and diverse array of music on standalone DJ
gear,” said Jason Stout, Product Marketing Manager for Engine DJ. He added, “A DJ can
literally show up to an event, connect and play virtually any track on the planet without any
physical media or computer. It’s amazing to see how far we’ve come from the days of
carrying crates of vinyl and books of CDs. We’re excited to lead the industry into the next
chapter of music medium playback history.”
