SoundCloud Go+ Streaming Service

SoundCloud, known as the world’s largest and most diverse platform of digital music, brings a unique and personalized experience to Engine OS standalone devices without the need of a computer. Once activated, DJs can access their entire SoundCloud Library including their own tracks, created/liked playlists, albums, liked tracks, play history, followed artists as well as SoundCloud’s own curated playlists. SoundCloud Go+ includes 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 Go+.

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 includes both optimised (128kb/s MP3) 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 more info on Beatport LINK. (Beatport Offline Locker support & Beatsource LINK service will come in future updates.)

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.
