Denon has announced the brand-new Prime 4, a powerful, four-deck DJ performance system. It has numerous features that will appeal to DJs looking to mix between a huge library of tracks, filter and effect them, and cut, loop, and otherwise manipulate their music.
The Prime 4 gives DJs complete, tactile control through four decks and a 10″ touchscreen, where you can access, edit, and effect your tracks, all without a computer.
You can load a huge amount of music onto the Prime 4 and record your sets through any of the four USB ports, an SD drive, or a built-in 2.5″ SATA drive bay. You can use any of these channels to record your sets.
It features eight performance pads that can be used to split measures, create rolls, slice, or loop with quantization. Prime 4 brings advanced time-stretching functionality, real-time pitch-shifting, and easy key-matching.
The unit’s four channel line faders each have a three-band EQ. You can add textures and character through any of the 13 included effects, and there’s a dual-function sweepable effects and filter control. Through the USB ports, you can also add a keyboard controller for added versatility.
Additionally, Denon has created what it’s calling the “world’s first” independent Zone Output, allowing you to play a playlist in a separate room while performing on a main stage.
