There’s a new Player in Town!
The Denon DJ SC5000 Prime represents a real paradigm shift in DJ Technology, right here, right now. This groundbreaking digital DJ Media Player has a high definition, hi-contrast display that enables multi-touch gestures for the ultimate in latency-free, tactile track navigation, load and playback. The SC5000 is also the world’s first DJ Player capable of on-board music file analysis, really empowering you with its innovative dual-layer deck capability and an 8-inch rugged jogwheel with central display that displays either current playing track or custom artwork.
Engineering & Performance Innovations
Powered by a dedicated, multi-core internal processor, the SC5000 runs ‘Engine Prime.’ This latest version of Denon DJ’s music librarian software is onboard the unit, offering you direct access and and convenient performance features, so you can be at your creative best.
Unique on the SC5000 is its bank of eight multifunction trigger pads that deliver unprecedented creative expression for your hot-cues, loops, slices and roll playback – all safely locked down by the SC5000’s insanely accurate beatgrid analysis. Up to four SC5000 Players can be LAN networked for synchronised data transfer between units, plus you get enhanced BPM and FX possibilities using ‘Engine Connect’ protocol to work with Denon DJ’s new X1800 Prime, 4-Channel mixer.
Customisable DJ Tech
Once a USB drive or SD card is inserted, the SC5000 remembers any previously entered DJ preferences, ensuring that from within the ‘Engine Prime’ eco-system, the unit recalls every one of your performance preferences and settings. This includes any previously performed track cue points, loop regions, playback history, preparation folders and of course any live, on-the-fly, track analysis. Like we said, the SC5000 works with you and gets out of the way!
Visual customisation is highlighted by your choice of main primary colours for the SC5000 Prime’s 8- inch (touch-capacitive) jog-wheel LEDs, in addition to using your own DJ brand logo or selected track artwork on the beautiful central display. On the SC5000 touchscreen, elegant zoom-in and zoom-out of the big, beautiful track waveforms brings you to the pinnacle of musical timeline visualisation.
Audiophile Routing Beyond Expectation
The SC5000’s unique dual-deck playback facility makes the unit literally ‘2-decks-in-1,’ and with dedicated outputs for each layer, brings you imagination-driven, music playback possibilities with the ultimate in sonic and mix control. The audio outputs are 24-bit/96kHz for the very highest sound quality, and of course the SC5000 Prime plays all uncompressed audio formats, including FLAC, ALAC and WAV, plus all popular compressed music files. The Denon DJ SC5000 Prime returns you to ‘The Original Artform’, bringing back passion and creativity alongside performance transparency, with the blindingly fast DJ technology that you deserve.
7” HD Multi-Touch Display
Engage in a new visual performance workflow with the SC5000’s amazing, latency-free HD touchscreen. We make it easy to navigate through crates, playlists and your up-next ‘Preparation Folder’ tracks, while organising your music by category and getting lightning-fast search results using the on-screen, alphanumeric keyboard. All your vital DJ performance info is viewable, such as BPM, musical key, loop-lengths and bar/beat counter etc.
Plus with a new swipe-right to load feature, dropping tracks into the mix is a totally perfect experience. The large, tri-coloured (frequency split) waveform (drawn at 55 frames per second) can be viewed zoomed in or out with a finger pinch-gesture and shows clearly that essential beatgrid positioning throughout the track. Add this to the full-track waveform overview, for both layers (A&B), and utilise the coarse or fine adjust needle-drop touchstrip to jump to any position in your song.
Dual-Layer Deck Switching
A terrific innovation in a single Pro DJ media player, the SC5000 Prime is armed with not one, but two actual deck layers, controlled by one unit and capable of beatgrid locked synchronisation. The rear of the SC5000 has dedicated audio outputs for these layers (A&B) offering some incredible options for creative and forward-thinking DJs – you can drop an instrumental on layer ‘A’, with an acapella playing on layer ‘B.’ Or, how about looping a breakbeat on layer ‘A’ as your set end track, while handing off to a fellow DJ who’s scratching a sax sample over the top of the mix on layer ‘B’ – the possibilities are endless!
Central Colour Display
At the center of the SC5000’s highly-responsive and touch-capacitive 8-inch jogwheel is our new HD circular screen. Each time a tune is loaded to the player that contains album or track artwork, it’s displayed in the stunningly beautiful central area. In addition, (great for branding when the film crew is on stage with you), you can lock in custom DJ artwork, overriding the track artwork feature, for the ultimate in DJ tech customisation. Of course, all other important DJ data such as deck status, time duration and loop region lengths are displayed too.
8 Expressive Control Trigger Pads
Imagine having the creative power of using amazing laptop-based (3rd party DJ software) performance features such as creative loops, rolls, hot cue juggling and slicers – without the laptop! The SC5000 unit has eight highly tactile and responsive trigger pads, which (with the safety net industry-leading accurate beatgrids) gives you the freedom and confidence to perform astounding audio tricks, cut-up and remix tracks and reinterpret your music collection using this single media player alone. Add additional interest to more minimal tracks or conversely, re-energise an already massive club hit, rephrasing different sections to custom build the dance floor energy as only ‘you’ feel it. Creative DJ’ing has just entered a whole new dimension!
