Also, Prime 4 can access music files and media sources with no less than four USB inputs, one SD and also a built-in SATA drive bay.
Prime 4 empowers DJs to manipulate 14 on-board, pro-club DJ Effects, with three quick access parameter adjustments for instant gratification ‘in the mix.’ DJs can quickly access and manipulate single encoder, dual-function control too for Sweep FX and Filter, across all 4 channels. In addition, any DJ in any venue now has total command over impactful visual elements with lighting and video control via Denon DJ’s StagelinQ connectivity and Denon DJ partners Soundswitch, Timecode and Resolume applications.
Prime 4 features a metal build quality and 24-bit Denon DJ audio.
