Denon StageLinq

Last Updated Aug 5th, 2022.

Now Playing supports Prime Go, Prime 2, Prime 4, SC5000 and SC6000.


Starting Now Playing

Start with your Denon DJ turned off. Turn it on, wait for it to boot up, then start Now Playing.

Now Playing should detect StageLinq and start up.


Recommended Setups

Prime Go / 2 / 4 / SC5000 / SC6000 + X1850 / X1800

For SC5000 / SC6000 we recommend you plug your players into the back of the X1850/1800 mixer. Then connect the PC port to the same router or hub that your computer is connected to so everything is on the same network.

Go into SettingsStageLinq

For best results enable mixer position. Set the minimum play time to between 20-60 seconds and the minimum volume to 60-90 percent depending on how you like to mix songs.

Open format, hip hop DJs who mix quickly seem to like how shorter minimum playtime feels (20-45 seconds)

House, techno, trance DJs who mix longer like a longer setting (30-60 seconds).

SC5000 / SC6000 without a Denon Mixer

Go into SettingsStageLinq

For best results disable mixer position. Set the minimum play time to between 20-60 seconds.

House, techno, trance DJs who mix longer like a longer setting (30-60 seconds).


Mixer Settings

If you have the mixer setting is enabled you can adjust when Now Playing updates based on your mixing style.

PLAY TIME:

Play time adjusts how long a song needs to be playing before Now Playing sends an update. The Cue button doesn't count toward the play time. Only the Play/Pause button does. We like 30-45 seconds. You can set it to as low as zero.

MIXER POSITION:

When using a Denon all-in-one or Denon mixer the volume is effected by your crossfader and the up faders. Meaning, if the up fader is all the way up and your cross fader is in the center the volume will be 100%. If you move your cross fader 1/4 the way to one side, your total volume will be 50% (as shown in the picture).

At the bottom of the settings screen Now Playing will show you what the percentage volume is.

CROSS FADER BYPASS: 

Important: For Prime GO / 2 / 4. Even if you disable the crossfader Denon still sends Now Playing data. Meaning, Now Playing still gets affected by it even when it's off. Unfortunately, there's no way Now Playing can ignore it until Denon makes a change to how the hardware sends data.
