Ok I’ll be the first to say it …how much! :astonished:

Well I was going to grab one of these to control the second layer of my SC5000. But at £600!! …I might as well look out for a 2nd hand SC5000


Yes, quite expensive. I was hoping they were also compatible with Prime 4, but they are not.


Nice review!!!


$900 in Canada! despite the cost to manufacture one of these, that price is just too high for a single control surface. Second hand SC5000 is definitely the way to go considering I paid $1299 for a brand new SC5000.

Cool add-on to the Engine setup but not worth the price IMO. Sorry :frowning:

*when I say single, I realize I can control another layer/deck in a software but it is still “hands on one deck at a time”.

–Same store in Canada selling the LC6000 for $900 has the SC5000 on sale for $1199 :expressionless:

“Performance Expansion Controller”

Now DJs can have pecs :wink:


Can’t you use it for later a, or does it only work for layer b?

Only for layer B. The top screens (default A-B) can be switched to B-A, to match the placement of the LC to the SC, by holding Shift+Layer for a few seconds.

let’s give them some time :wink: if they’ll manage that, 'll buy me 1 fo sho!

I was more concerned about mixer routing. I’d prefer to have the LC’s on the outside and have the mixer layout match. Logically, it’s easier for your mind to go A-B-B-A instead of B-A-A-B. Maybe in a future update?

Also, Engine OS does not currently remember your later swap setting in dual layer mode. So you need to swap the layers every time. It’s actually why I stopped using dual layer mode on the players. I want to just power up and mix.

I saw some expected questions about a motorized version in the YouTube comments.

Flex move by denon will be to allow the Rane Twelves to control the layer B…that will be some move.


Unusually for me, I’m going to defend the pricing on this (at least the UK pricing).

SC6000 is currently retailing for £1200-1300 so the LC6000 is less than half which I think is about fair.

Not personally for me though as I have no problems with 1-deck mixing and have 2 SC5000’s anyway but I don’t think the pricing is too out there.

I’ve had a few hours to mull this over, & I don’t think i’ve changed my opinion.

I really like the product, & it’s pretty much everything I expected it to be. It would be fantastically useful to me both as a 2nd layer controller & if they ever certify it (fingers crossed) a Traktor controller with my Z2 mixer.

Unfortunately I think it’s overpriced by about £200 for what’s essentially a box of switches & a jog wheel.


That. Currently have a Rane Twelve mk2 sitting alongside my mixer just begging to be used with my sc6000m.

That is a little high. It will probably reach here by sept/oct time.

Wow, I expected it to retail for like $500 to $550…$700 is pricey for a controller. Ughh, I’m torn. I REALLY want one of these, but I just don’t feel it’s worth half the price of a full unit. I’ve already made my calls and the cheapest I could get it for was $630. That’s still too expensive in my opinion.

It can reach here next year for all I care…At $900 it is a hard pass for me :joy:

I think this controller is gonna do well just because it’s a missing link in the controller market.

Looks like algoriddim is getting a lot of attention nowadays and I like that inmusic now makes hardware working with iOS dj software.

Quite expensive here in Australia. $1250. I can get a brand new sc5000m to partner my sc6000m for $1500. Easy choice based on those prices.
