Deckadance v2 Deckadance v2
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).
