Review: Deckadance 2 :
Childs IV on Sep 30, in Review 0 comments. But, beyond that, I really feel like the layout and placement is extremely well thought out. So, if you hate reading through the whole thing, and just want to click on a picture and find out what a function does.
Very quickly, I discovered that the time-shifting of Deckadance 2 not only sounds good, but its implementation is extremely formidable. Just push the sync buttons on the decks that you want tempo-matched and Deckadance 2 takes care of the rest.
Again, before moving on to other parts of the application, the sound is extremely good. Especially the time-stretching algorithms. The frequency range of my music is ingeniously preserved, along with the transients.
I really want to give Image-Line some credit on this. Of course, where would the fun be without some FX. I was particularly impressed with the FX mixers ability to have the FX be applied to either hi, mid, or low frequencies. Deckadance 2 also allows the usage of VST plug-ins. However, AU is apparently missing. And, with the handy, little editor buttons, the graphic portion of your VST plug-ins become readily available. Though, once I started to press a few buttons, everything appeared and was just fine.
And, quite a few of them, I might add. In fact, it goes well beyond simple stutter effects and also affords you gating, ducking, scratching effects and more. This grid-based, drum pad-like system is also crazy easy to customize.
This contextual menu also allows you to determine which effects will be one-shots, loops, or Re-trigger. You can even design your own effects. Deckadance 2 also features a very handy, simple DJ Sampler, just the way you like it. Sample pads are available, with a very easy to use record and playback interface.
Simply record and then drag the sample on to the pad of your choice. Samples, can of course be looped, re-triggered and one-shot.
Review: Deckadance 2
In this particular area of Deckadance, I was kind of hoping for a few more features. Specifically, Pan controls, as well as Level controls for samples. And, maybe some way to dedicate effects to samples specifically, rather than having to go through the master bus. Keep in mind, these are just icing suggestions. Not a deal breaker, by any means. I was really impressed with Deckadance 2. One thing that has always impressed me with Image-Line is the way that they are constantly adding new features.
Deckadance 2 is no different in this regard. Recently, with version 2. So, if you have a MIDI controllers laying around, and have some coding knowledge, you can even get your controller in on the action.
Or, just wait for someone else to do it on the Image-Line forums. Give it a try and see if it might set your club sets on fire. More articles by this author.
