Image-Line has updated its DJ mixing application Deckadance to version 1.14.

Deckadance works either as a standalone program OR as a VSTi plugin inside your favourite host. Deckadance itself can also host any VST compliant softsynth or effect.

You can control Deckadance (Club Edition) using most (if not all) existing midi controllers & timecoded vinyl and CD systems.

Check the featurelist for more details on Deckadance Club, House and LE editions.
