Xylio FutureDecks Pro

Xylio has released version 2.0 of FutureDecks Pro, a DJ mixing software for Windows and Mac.

With FutureDecks Pro you can really mix your songs, nothing else needed but your imagination.
Beat-matching is just a click away and also are seamless beat-aware loops, effects and many other things.
All these thanks to a brand new audio engine.

Changes in FutureDeck Pro v2.0

  • High-quality time-stretching (you need to activate it from the cfg window – requires intensive CPU resources).
  • Pitch scaling/transpose (independent of tempo/speed) – used for harmonic/key mixing (use the FutureDecks tag editor to assign key values to songs that don’t have the key already set).
  • Whole song audio stripe/waveform on position slider.
  • Added Mix-In/Mix-Out (CUE In/Out) points used by AutoMix (can be edited just like regular cue points).
  • Auto CUE In/Out (automatically detecting mix-in and mix-out points for the AutoMix feature if they are not present).
  • Improved BPM detection and beat-matching (sync).
  • Import the whole iTunes library or only distinct playlists (works with both normal and smart lists).
  • Skin Designer application (released for Windows only at this time).
  • Video window remembers position/screen and fullscreen mode.
  • Hide mouse cursor when video is full-screen.
  • Settings rework (all XML now).
  • Cleaned up DirectX, fixed quality (as good as in OpenGL now), fixed aspect ratio when in full-screen.
  • High-quality video setting for both DirectX and OpenGL (consumes more resources if activated).
  • Better detection of external controllers.
  • Browsing and loading songs directly from the controller for all Hercules controllers.
  • New hardware controllers supported: Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2, Reloop Digital Jockey – IE2 (partial support).
  • Changed loop controls name (“In” is now “In/Out” and “Out” is now “Exit”); the functionality remains the same.
  • Automatically pausing the track when reaching end.
  • Increased tempo/speed maximum range to +/-50%.
  • A lot of small bugs and critical errors fixed, much more stable.
  • Speed improvements.

FutureDeck Pro v2.0 is available to purchase for $99 / €79 / £59. The upgrade is free for those who purchased v1.x after August 1, 2009.
