In the manual for the 3.0 update, the Prime 4+ is also listed alongside the previously available workstations.
I would like to switch from my old (notebook) system to Engine Prime and have therefore been waiting for the technically updated successor to the Prime 4 for a few weeks. Is a release date already known and does it also have, for example, a larger display and a directly adjustable sample player?
The Prime 4+ is going to be pretty much identical to the current unit, except the added Amazon Music service, just like the Mixstream Pro Plus. The manual indicates that.
it also have, for example, a larger display and a directly adjustable sample player?
No. Also, why an even larger display? 10.1" is plenty enough. What they should rather address is its (mediocre) maximum brightness. Since the same screen is found in the SC6000 and MPC X, it would make sense to coordinate those products updates. The same can be applied for other components, like CPU/RAM, internal storage, micro-switches, faders, knobs, PSU, etc.
Ive found the Engine UI to be one of the more usable ones outside out of all the players, CDJs are woeful in any type of daylight, as are most laptop screens, although the newest Surface laptops and Macbooks have much better screens than even 4 years ago.
This was taken last summer, some lunatic thought it was a good idea for us to host an all dayer on a town market square:) was messy to say the least.
Anyway despite the screen looking pretty bad in the pic, in actual use it did pretty well and i was able to find most stuff easily.
I thought the whole Prime 4+ was false information spread through social media as a gag because they had the Prime Go+ as well. LOL! I just looked at the updated manual and yes, the Prime 4+ is listed on the cover. I imagine it will offer the Amazon chip needed to use Amazon music as the SC Live units have. Be nice it if had rotating platters too.
