Denon DJ Division is doing something great to give back to the DJ's that have made them successful throughout the years. Introducing the new Denon DJ July Madne$$ Rebate promotion for DJ's in the United States that are looking to purchase a Denon DJ MC6000, MC2000, or SC3900 Digital DJ players. This promotion only lasts until the end of the month, so act fast if one of these controllers are on your DJ wishlist.
The Denon DJ SC2900 is the new jog-wheel based multi-media playback DJ device that shares almost all of the same features and functions of the Denon DJ SC3900 which we reviewed last year. The Denon DJ SC3900 was a definite success for DJ’s who wanted the closest vinyl-feel possible, but still gave the DJ options to play music using various forms of media or computer/tablet connectivity. It only makes sense that Denon would now focus its efforts on appeasing the DJ’s who want a CDJ-like jog wheel feel.
Last week, Denon DJ has announced the new update V.1.1.0 of their new Engine software which will make for a more enjoyable experience when using it in conjunction with the SC2900 and SC3900 Multi-Media players. Hot off the heels of the announcement, Denon has sent us a new Denon SC2900 for a full written and HD-Video review. The SC2900 is essentially the jog-wheel version of their SC3900 Multi-Media player which has an actively spinning platter with a true vinyl feel. The jog wheel has a multi-color LED ring around it to give the DJ key indicators during playback. The SC2900 has four on-board hot cue buttons, loop controls, separate start/stop adjustment knobs, Slip-Mode, and easy to use browsing controls. The Full review will be completed shortly, but watch the unboxing and first impressions video to see the unit fresh out of the box.
The Denon DJ Engine Music Management Software gets a new update with some cool new features to make using the Denon SC2900 and SC3900 an even more enjoyable experience. With the new Engine V1.1.0 software update update for PC/Mac and iOS there is also a new Firmware update for the Denon SC2900/SC3900 players which will make the user experience more fluid and accurate. Check out the new features and the update link after the jump.
Just a few short weeks ago, the folks at Serato released the new Serato DJ Software upgrade packages for the Numark Mixtrack, the Denon MC2000, and the Pioneer DDJ-Ergo. Users of these controllers can now upgrade from the bare-bones Serato DJ Intro to the full-featured Serato DJ for the cool price of $199. Serato has now released three new videos that shows each of these controllers in action with the Serato DJ software to show potential users some of the new features that come with the upgrade. Check out the videos after the jump.
The new Serato DJ software (which is basically the new replacement software for Serato Itch) now provides a true upgrade path for people who are using the low-level Serato DJ Intro software with their Digital DJ Controllers. Serato DJ Intro software has a limited number of DJ functions, but DJ that own the Numark Mixtrack, Denon MC2000, or the Pioneer DDJ-ERGO now have the option to upgrade to the full Serato DJ version with much more control over the playback options and lots more features at your fingertips.
The Denon MC2000 is the new compact DJ controller which is full of MIDI controls for your favorite software, a solid-metal build quality, all in an affordable package that DJ's are sure to love. Check out our full HD-Video and written review after the jump to see if the unit is good enough to take the cash out of your wallet.
