    Default the Deckadance 2 speculation thread

    Holy cow! The abandoned child crashes the party much? I cannot wait for some more previews of this, it looks like they've tried to beat Traktor at their own game, which is a pretty risky business strategy!

    Can't believe there isn't already some talk about it on these forums. Also with it shipping with the CMD line, it's going to be cheap to get into. This has potential to be a real game shaker by the looks of its functions (individually edited sample banks?! Isolated FX!?). Although I do remember Deckadance to be rather unstable and slightly laggy compared to Traktor/Serato.

    Anyone else know/figure out/hope for something?

    I completely agree, the new features look extremely promising!



    The 16-pad Sampler feature looks like Deckadance's answer to the Traktor Remix Decks. If they work well and are compatible with any MIDI controller..... wowww goodbye F1!

    Edit: just caught the end of the video... unfortunately the CMDs will only ship with the LE version of Deckadance. Bummer.

    Don't forget the DVS support with pretty much any soundcard with RCA's and virtually any timecode you care to mention.

    I really do hope its snappy its what really turned me off V1 .. well that and the piss ugly windowesque GUI of v1

    I'm hoping the price would drop quite a bit seeing as its now $99 for a Audio2 + Full version of traktor.

    Damn I really really wish the CMDs came with the full version of Deckadance 2. Only including the LE version makes it less enticing to switch from Traktor. Then again, I understand the reasoning behind it... the CMDs are designed for and being marketed to beginners, who won't need all the advanced features right away. Still a bummer, especially since it was originally reported that they would be bundled with the full version!

    I have to say, the fully mappable 4x4 pads is a beautiful Idea. No complex mapping needed, its honestly a cross between ableton live and traktor. Looks like great stuff.

    That looks really nice, might try it out
    And built in gross beat and sampler, might be the new traktor/serato for fl nerds (like me)

    Watching that video, I'm actually scared for the stability. And gutted about LE shipping with the CMDs, if you buy two or more you should get the full version, it is modular after all.
