djDecks has finally reached v1.00
This release is based on the djDecks DX version that has been in beta for quite a while now, so this means that it will also play video and karaoke, allow video effects, text overlays and picture slide shows.
Besides that, the browser, playlist, autoplay and search features have been improved, the audio engine is more flexible (allowing you to mix multiple asio/directsound/wasapi devices) and controller support has been improved too (besides midi, HID and OSC are now also supported)
This skin is created by djDecks user Tintin and offers different styles for each dj. There's a mixer view to use the internal mixer, a video view to mix videos and a vinyl view for using vinyl control.
The skin can be downloaded for free on the djDecks forum.
djDecks DX has been added directly to the download page along with djDecks For Mac and regular djDecks.
Although some features are still missing in djDecks DX, it can now do most things that regular djDecks could, and more such as support for the Pioneer CDJ-2000, CDJ-900, Numark Mixdeck and Hercules DJ Console 4-Mx. It also works better with audio cd's, has a more flexible audio interface selection and can also play video files and display picture slideshows.
This release brings initial support for the Reloop Digital Jockey 2 controller, improved support for the DJ-Tech i-Mix controller, and some improvements to the VCI-100 and Denon controllers.
It also brings improvements to the smart playlist feature and faster search-while-typing.
As usual there's also a number of bugs that have been fixed.
The development of djDecks For Mac is also going pretty well, so feel free to try it if you like, and post your experiences on the forum.
I'm pleased to announce the first public beta version of djDecks For Mac.
It is compatible with most of the currently available djDecks Skins, it also works with vinyl control, it supports a few midi controllers, but more to come soon.
If you are interested in trying it out, read more on the forum!
A Mac OS X version of djDecks is currently in development.
Registered djDecks users can apply to participate in beta-testing through the djDecks Forum.
Most of the core functions are already working, but beta-testing is still useful to find out what is still missing.
With this version, various tag database problems have been fixed, support for Monkey's Audio files and MP4/M4A files has been added. It also adds some harmonic mixing tools such as key reading, showing current camelot scale, and changing key.
You can now also create custom beatgrids for automatic beat-matching.
Check the download page for download and a full change log.
This version brings support for the EKS Otus and the Stanton SCS.3d DaScratch. It also introduces a new tag database, which improves browsing speed and allows for dynamic playlists (based on queries) to be created. As always there have also been various other fixes and improvements.
The new version brings great improvement to the tempo control algorithm quality, giving better sound quality when using key lock. It also fixes various bugs, and adds support for the Denon HS-5500 and Allen&Heath Xone:2D controller

Recently, the djDecks skins site has also been launched, where users can submit their own djDecks skins.

The djDecks website has been moved to a new webhost a few days ago. Because of this some functions of the website may not have been working correctly, but everything should be working again now.
In this release various bugs have been fixed, FLAC tags can be saved, MIDI controller support has been improved, a bit-crusher effect has been added and some playlist improvements have been made.

This new version adds more features for the BCD2000 controller and improves support for the Hercules DJ Console, EKS XP10 and DMC1/DAC2 controller. The Vinyl Control algorithms have also been updated for a more stable pitch and lower pitch drifting.
Picture browsing support has also been extended. It is now also possible to browse your files by pictures, and both the file and directory browser can show the pictures in 2 columns.
Browsing in general is also improved with a new database to store tags for faster browsing and searching. It is now also possible to quickly preview tracks from within the playlist or filebrowser before loading them.
Various bugs and issues reported since the previous release have also been fixed.
As always, you can download the new release from the download page
Another new release. As promised, the Behringer BCD-2000 controller is fully supported in this version (check the documentation for more info).
Other improvements are in the automatic mixing mode, sound quality improvements, better vst effect support and better vinyl control pitch stability. Another new feature is that you can record from an external input directly into a deck, which makes it possible to scratch over a mic input using vinyl control for example.

It has been a long time since the previous release, but v0.72 is finally here. This release almost completely closes the gap between ASIO and DirectSound output modes, so now all modes have WaveForm overviews, real seamless looping and more.
Support for VST effects has also been greatly improved, and a new 'filter' effect has been added to the default effects.
The Hercules DJ Console Mk2, and the Hercules DJ Control MP3 are now also fully supported.
Besides that, various bugs have been fixed, performance is improved, and lots of improvements to the vinyl control plugins have been made.
To download the new version, and for a full overview of all changes, check out the download page.
There was not enough time left to add support for the Behringer BCD2000 for this release, but expect a new beta version in one or two weeks with support for this controller as well.
I wish everyone a happy 2006 and lots of (djDecks powered :p ) parties!
Due to some bugs in the initial 0.70 release, a bug fix release (v0.70b) has been put online today.
The 2 major fixes are id3v2 tags not being saved and a problem with some directsound modes.
Besides this, some other small improvements and bug fixes have been made.
It took a bit longer than expected, but it's finally here. This version adds initial support for the EKS XP10 controller, adds new looping functionality (halve/double loop length, move loops) and works perfectly with MsPinky timecoded records again. The tag cache system has also been improved making browsing faster. Various bugs have been fixed, and some performance improvements have been made for ASIO modes.
The next release will focus more on VST effect functionality, and will improve DirectSound mode to bring it closer to ASIO mode in terms of functionality and sound quality.
It has taken some time, but it's finally here. Some of the new features include support for FLAC files, better Audio CD support, improvements for both DirectSound and ASIO modes, higher sound and effect quality, various Vinyl Control improvements, initial support for VST effects and a better playlist/browser.
In the next version, the playlist window should be fully skinnable, the effects will be extended, and hopefully support for the Behringer dj controller will be added.
This new version again brings a lot of improvements and new features.
The vinyl control has been extended with VirtualDJ and SSL records, pitch and synchronization are more stable for all supported records (FinalScratch, VDJ, SSL and MsPinky)
FinalScratch, VDJ and SSL can now also be used withouth phono pre-amps by using the new callibration feature.
Other improvements include reading of wma tag, improved column mode for the playlist and library, autoscroll option for tag fields, and various bug fixes.
For future versions a lot of new features are still planned, such as more advanced looping options, improved effects, VST effect support, better support for hardware controllers and multi-soundcard support in ASIO modes (currently multiple soundcards are only supported in DirectSound mode)
There was a problem with the download server the past few days, but the download link works again now.
djDecks v0.66 will be released officialy soon
Yet again a new version has been released.
Most issues with the new skin have been resolved, and the new 'chiron' skin is now the default skin.
There have been a lot of improvements for FinalScratch and MsPinky digital vinyl, and a lot of fixes and improvements to the behaviour of the effects.
With this release, we have been working hard on the skin. There's a new skin system, and it's capabilities are shown in the new skin that's included (select it in the configuration). Thanks to Chiron for his excellent skinning skills.
There are a lot of small things fixed in this release, and some improvements, mainly for the ASIO output mode.
The FinalScratch plugin has also been improved with this version.
As promised, this version fixes the bug that was in v0.62. I've also done some code optimization on the drawing code.
If you are interested in FinalScratch support in djDecks, please visit this website for more information.
It appears that there is a bug in v0.62. The bug resets the speed of the playing song when loading a new song in the other player. It only happens in DirectSound mode (not in ASIO mode).
The fixed version will be available this weekend.
This new release adds WMA playback, ASIO in and output modes, cd playback and support for the Hercules DJ Console external controller.
As always, you can download it on the download page.
Another new release. Scratching/reversed playing has been improver, panning keeps volume level, oddsock 2 plugin can be used for streaming, there are some updates to the effects, the DAC2 and DMC1 external controllers are supported and of course some bugs have been fixed.
You can download it and see a full list of changes on the download page.
Finally a new version. This time, most of the changes are bugfixes. Other new things include a better quality equalizer, 48000Hz output setting, mousewheel support and changing tempo without affecting pitch.
Go to the download page to check it out!
This new release adds both shoutcast and oddscok support (see the included documentation for more details)
It now correctly reads and writes vorbis tags for ogg files.
There is a 0dB limiter on the main output to prevent clipping, and some bugs are fixed.
Head over to the downloads to download it.
The new version is finally ready!
Some multi-soundcard issues have been solved, the bpm detection has been improved, the manual has been updated and more than 10 cue-points can now be stored per song.
Check out the download page for a full list of changes!
It has been a long time now since I've updated this site, and it has been offline a few weeks due to webserver problems.
Anyway, I am working on the new version, and one of the new features will be that storing and loading cue-points will be very easy (and up to 20 cue-points per song can be saved).
Because a new version of the fmod sound library has been released, I first have to test that thoroughly to see if it's stable before I release a new version.
djDecks v0.57 has been released today.
The main new feature is of course the multi-soundcard support, and other new features are a new dsp effect (gapper) and azerty keyboard preset.
You can download it in the download area.
Comments and suggestions are of course still welcome!
I have some great news for you all!
First of all, the next version of djDecks will support two sound cards.
If you want to get a mail when the new version is released, just add your email to the mailinglist.
The other new thing is the djDecks forum, where you can discuss djDecks, or request new features.
Check it out
Another new release today!
This one mainly fixes some small (but annoying) bugs, and also adds a mode for people that want to use an external mixer with djDecks.
New version can be downloaded from the download page (see there for changes too).
This is the first shareware release.
