Gibson Acquires Deckadance.
We would like to announce that Gibson have acquired Image-Line's Deckadance DJ music application and rights. Deckadance will be sold under the Stanton brand.
As the sale was a friendly and strategic move for both companies, Image-Line and Gibson will collaborate closely to create the smoothest transition possible.

Existing Deckadance customers find instructions in their 'my licenses' page on how to migrate the Deckadance license and account to Gibson/Stanton (on the Cakewalk site). 
We will continue to host Deckadance 2.43 and activation keys on our servers for the foreseeable future (deadline: 31 december 2016).

* Deckadance v2 OEM version bundled with a specific controller:
The Deckadance v2 OEM version you receive bundled with a controller will only work with one specific midi controller, the one of the bundle.

For example: if your Deckadance v2 OEM program was bundled with the Synq PCM1 controller, the pogram only works with the Synq PCM1 controller and not with the rest of controllers.
