That i saw, I’m referring to a unit similar to this running Serato DJ instead of say Denons software as this is.

Also interesting inmusics play with making dedicated hardware for all of ones music needs without needing a laptop.

MPC for music creation, the new APC controller for loop based music, and this Denon unit for DJs which I’m sure at some point will be able to talk with one another.

This was a answer to my question of how the laptop will be phased out somewhat, the new question now in my opinion will people buy in.

I almost shed a tear to this comment! LOL. Maybe Serato waits to implement a feature and/or technology until it is an absolute must have?

That way of looking at things is ‘for now’ over, will have to wait until being conservative about things cycles back. Immediacy is the the rule and whoever provides will be who gets the dollars. It is a slow shift but it is the shift that is occurring. Also the fact that so many new types of customers with more and more small specific incremental needs are happening as well.

Speaking of being behind, edit button when. Came to mind after posting that, that is just one of the millions of ways to look at things, either way someones gonna sell and someones gonna buy and that will never end.

Laptop will soon be a thing of the past. Take my word for it.

True standalone controller/mixer will have own onboard processor and HD.

You can install a SATA 1tb drive in this thing that’s crazy!

Man, we're really getting close to the no laptop days. This is exciting.

I agree we're almost there...to be honest if the Denondj Sc5000 M's played nice with my Rane 72 i would've been there already i'm sick of carrying a laptop but this thing with a 1tb Sata drive sounds like a very very good move.

This looks dope but how easy will it be to keep your library sync'ed to your laptop?

"Another industry ‘world’s first’ is Prime 4’s independent Zone Output, empowering DJs with the ability to send a full playlist of music to a completely separate room or location, all while the DJ rocks the dancefloor in the main venue. "

Wow

Yeah, this thing checks all the boxes for mobile, wedding and bedroom controller DJs. A fuckin' beast!! I have a full setup of A&H, CDJ, Ableton, MK5s, etc.. and even I am drooling over this thing.
Gio Alex 11:05 AM - 18 January, 2019
They thought of almost everything. Beast for sure! Only 20 lbs too.

21.34 lbs 😉

But 28.68" × 19.59" x 4.08" / 728.47 x 496.82 × 103.63 mm

This thing is bulky !
Djkom 1:07 PM - 18 January, 2019
Also wonderinf why Denon hasn't kept sc5000 layout on the prime4.
Bigger jogwheels and linear pads are better IMO
Djkom 1:19 PM - 18 January, 2019

on board key shifting was the one thing these standalone units were missing for me. Hopefully, they implement it via firmware for the SC5000s.

Unit is way too big and unruly for me and I'm fine with using my laptop still, but I could see this being installed in smaller bars/lounges and probably wouldn't complain if I saw one of these.

The harddrive bay is pretty cool, but I wonder if you have to unscrew that pannel and use an enclosure everytime you wanted to load it up with tracks, or if there's a way to do it using just the onboard Engine OS.

Yeah, I was curious about that myself.

I have the SC5000 and when you connect the player to the laptop you can actually see the hardrives/USB sticks connected to the 5000. Could be same thing for the Prime 4.

Thats why it's got USB 3 port at the rear...for speedy transfers...I suppose. The SC5000 had the same USB 3 port as well.

I was also able to use regular USB 2 cables with the USB 3 port...

Next up is a dual rane 12 and 72 with a fold up screen similar to this and the laptop will be gone.

That would be amazing but with 10” platters instead of 12

Agree on the 10" platter...and Serato inside instead of Prime. That would be dope!
dj_soo 9:41 PM - 20 January, 2019
I’d prefer a standalone version of the 72s that are compatible with the Twelves and hopefully the Nines if that ever becomes a thing.

With the possibility of an upgradable serato app/ New serato release software updates inside the standa alone unit to be upgraded via firmware

Gotta be real interesting to have standalone serato

+1 but keep it 12" and drop the unneccessary extra weight.
