Deckadance 1.8 is now available for Windows and Mac OSX.

 

Big news is the new Song Manager:

 

 

 

The Song Manager is designed to help organize your songs easily and quickly.

 

Song Manager Features

 

- Manage 50.000+ in your music collection without slow downs using a open format database (sqlite).

- SM categorizes music files in your computer making them accessible through numerous search/sort features.

- Importing tracks into Song Manager doesn't copy music files.

- Simple search and advanced search via subsets of metadata fields (filters).

- Create playlist to organize effectively your tracks. Sort, re- order, reset original state, export to html/m3u and more.

- Create smart playlist that auto-update based on 'rules'. e.g.: "top 25 most played dance genre songs with bpm between 120 and 140".

- Fully customizable layouts: hide/show, re-arrange, (auto) resize of the metadata view columns.

- Edit track tags/metadata (title, artist, name... etc.) via inline editing.

- Cover art (resizable) display.

- Supported formats: mp3, acc (m4a), wav, aiff, wma, flac and ogg.

- Cross platform (win/mac) with full drag/drop external support.

 

Other notable changes & additions

 

- New Recording engine with threaded streaming to disk.

- Added supported controllers (Hercules DJ Console MK4 & American Audio VMS4)

- Added SNAP to the closest beat in the waveform for loops, cues, waveform seek and start position.

- Added DVS run-out protection with auto engage and visual feedback.

- Added Lead In function in DVS section.

- Improved DVS behaviour for large audio buffer sizes.

- Incremented to 30 seconds the minimum playing time to mark a song like played.

- Added right click over played state to reset it.

- Removed clear played state of tracks when automix is enabled.

- Updated minihost look and added song manager start button.

- Added downbeat and start position keyboard shortcuts:

  > DECK A->Downbeat: "ctrl+t", Start Position: "ctrl+y".

  > DECK B->Downbeat: "ctrl+g", Start Position: "ctrl+h".

- Added "key slider" and "key slider inverted" to the midi learn commands.

- Incremented decks buffer size to 15 minutes.

 

Deckadance has the widest support for MIDI controllers in the industry.

 

DD 1.8 supports the following brands: Allen&Heath, American Audio, Bheringer, DJ-Tech, EKS, Hercules, iCon, Kontrol-DJ, M-Audio, Numark, Omnitronic, OpenLabs, Percussa, Reloop, Stanton, SYNQ, Vestax, Nintendo Wii & General MIDI .

Here's a simple, but effective, method for adding presence to dry drum or other percussive sounds. Something the FL Studio Guru learned waaaaay back in the day when the 128 Kb was still considered adequate RAM for a sampler.

 

 

 

 

Enjoy!

If you set a Downbeat Marker before dragging your sample to the Playlist FL Studio will align that marker with the grid.

 

If the project tempo is the same as the sample then you are all done. If not, just click on the Audio Clip menu (start of the audio clip) and select 'Detect tempo' and select the project tempo to match.

 

 

The sample used in this Top Tip is one of the entries in our *** David Latour remix competition ***, open to all registered FL Studio owners, we have cash prizes and iTunes fame to be had for the lucky winner, and cash plus other prizes for the runners up. More details & sample pack on the FL Studio Remix Contest page.

 

To enter: why not surf on over to this Looptalk thread - Image-Line Remix contest #2! and upload your remix, give it your best shot.

 

Closes: March 31st 2010

 

Regards Scott
