Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium Image Line Software, the developer of FL Studio (formerly FruityLoops), released the newest version of its DJ mixing software Deckadance with many improved functionalities for the best DJ performance.

Deckadance 1.5 is available for MAC and PC and gains a new audio engine with an amazing high quality of the sound. Version 1.5 now supports batch beat-analysis of the songs (reducing load times/CPU load during a performance) and time-stretching/compression technology. DJs can enjoy new playlist design with variable font sizes, view modes and the ability to import iTunes playlists.

To aid setup, the input and outputs of the program now appear as stereo channels making installation and routing of audio inputs/outputs more intuitive. Finally, users can choose between "Auto" or "Manual" beatgrid analysis modes, on a song-by-song basis, according to their preferences and the complexity of the source audio.

The newest release of Deckadance 1.5 also provides:

  • Native support for the last generation of midi controllers (Vestax VCI-300, DJ-Tech Kontrol One, Stanton SCS-3D, Hercules DJ Control Steel, EKS Otus, Omnitronic MMC-1, DJ-Tech DJM-202)
  • Improved seek waveform that shows the start and cue points
  • OpenGL render engine for Windows
  • Unicode support for playlist/browser items
  • Beatgrid move via mouse over the waveform
  • Improved DVS engine when elastique time-stretching is disabled, etc.
  • Option to switch between the old and new sound engine by the improved interface of the setup panel
  • Fully compatible with Open Labs DBeat portable DJ instruments
