Deckadance Mac version v1.2 Image-line

The other day, I told you about the new Mac version of Image-Line's Deckadance DVS. This info was kind of sort of gathered from sources but the real PR has arrived. So for the sake of completeness of info, here it is.

The official release:

Deckadance 1.2 will be the accent of the company’s participation in the NAMM Show

Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium
, January 10, 2008 - Image Line Software, the developers of Deckadance and FL Studio announce the greatly anticipated Mac OSX release of Deckadance (Universal Binary). Now all customers, Mac & PC, have access to one of the fastest growing DJ mixing software platforms in the market.

“Many professional DJs, producers and remixers use Macs as a preference platform, so the release of version 1.2 will make Deckadance a real proposition for them” commented Luis Serrano, the developer of Deckadance.

Open controller & timecode support: The Digital Vinyl System control panel has been redesigned and now comes with new and improved features, including an easy-to-use interface, a real-time signal spectroscope, and of course, the 'learning' feature that enables almost any timecode source (CD or Vinyl) to be used. There is also Vinyl timecoded control of decks inside Ableton Live and Live LE.

Improved Windows soundcard driver compatibility: Deckadance now supports DirectSound drivers in win32 platforms in addition to ASIO4ALL.

Native support: Deckadance 1.2 includes native support of the following controllers: Hercules Dj Console, Kontrol Dj KDJ500, EKS XP10, Behringer BCD2000/3000, M-Audio X-Session Pro, Allen&Heath Xone:3D, Vestax VCI-100 and Numark Total Control.

Editions: Deckadance 1.2 is available in two retail editions, Deckadance Club Edition (full) and Deckadance House Edition that drops the timecoded vinyl/CD transport control features. For hardware manufacturers that would like to bundle Deckadance with their DJ products there is a special LE Edition (contact Image Line Software for more details).

Download Deckadance 1.2 from Tucows. (That's the PC version)

Price: Deckadance Club Edition is US $179 and House Edition US $99. Both versions can be ordered from the FL Studio Web shop.

Image Line Software will feature Deckadance at this month’s NAMM show (Anaheim, California, January 17-20), where you can see the entire Image Line Software product portfolio, meet the management team and product developers. Image Line Software will be located at booth 6828 in Hall 1.

Finally! Why is everyone taking forever to make their stuff MAC-compatible?

Cause Apple likes to screw around with their APIs and generally break alot of apps when they upgrade their OS. Every developer I know about had trouble last year with their Mac versions because of the changes in Carbon. It broke alot of stuff, and delayed development just about everywhere. Things have smoothed out a bit and we're now starting to see development ramp up again.
