Touch and Feel Your Music
PRIME 2’s 7-inch 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 workflow 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-inch 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.

Never be caught out again for that elusive song request having literally the world’s music, exclusive playlists and curated content at your fingertips!

Pristine Audio – Powerful Connectivity

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.
Craft Your Mix
PRIME 2 has all the creative, hands-on features and power you’d need for any style of DJing, including 2 (100mm) line faders,
contour controlled crossfader and 6-inch capacitive touch jog-wheels with HD colour displays (showing song/DJ artwork plus
loop/track status info). With 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 (visualised on the main 7-inch display) plus Filter control for added
audio manipulation. 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.
Take Your Sounds Further
PRIME 2 will inspire even the most dextrous and creative energies inside your DJing mind. It brings 8, ultra-responsive trigger
pads (per channel) for hot-cue juggling, loops, beat roll and slicing plus a class-leading timestretch and key shift/sync feature to
radically change a songs tempo and musical key – ‘Open-Format’ DJing just got a whole lot more exciting, and easier!
Dual Microphone Power
Accept no sacrifice of your line faders, with PRIME 2’s two independent level controlled mic channels, both with XLR (¼-inch
combo) inputs. Double-up with a DJ partner or bring that enthusiastic bride or party-animal into the show, using the handy talkover
feature so you can get on with the serious business, of ‘fun’! PRIME 2 has both a mini and full size headphone jack input too, for those nights when you might...just might, forget your cable adapter!
Engine OS 2.0 now includes some major updates:
New look user interface
Built in lighting control for Philips Hue and DMX lighting with SoundSwitch.
Run your DMX lightshow directly from the Prime 4 once you have syncronised with SoundSwitch. You can also sync Philips Hue lights with the Prime 2 with no software or programming required.
New database structure with faster access, searching, analysis etc.
The database in 2.0 has been completely rebuilt to provide accelerated browsing, lightning-fast song analysis, enhanced system stability, and a significantly smaller database size. These new under the hood adjustments offer the user a streamlined experience when managing, browsing, and playing the music they love.
Ableton Link Compatibility
Users can now sync tempo with external hardware using Ableton Link over both wired and wireless networks. Once Ableton Link has been enabled, an orange link icon will be shown in the top right of the toolbar providing the number of linked devices, sync lead tempo, and phase meter showing the current beat position. When synced, the tempo will match the tempo of the longest playing device. The lead tempo can be adjusted from any device and all other linked devices will automatically follow.
Users can now assign a deck as a Playlist Player providing continuous playback with automated crossfading. The crossfade time can be adjusted in the Control Center settings menu. Playlist Deck is available for Prime 4, Prime 2, and Prime GO.
