Futrure Decks...Gotta Love it!!!

Was messing with this DJ Program Future Decks from Xylio last week with my Hercules Control Mp3 E2. The Mapping (especially the scratch pad) is tighter than the Version of Virtual DJ I own. Seeing as I already own 4 Dj software already and have home improvements to pay for im quite reluctant to shell out ca$h. But boy its kinda hard not to.

Here Is what you get for your money

- classic DJ setup with 2 decks, pro mixer and playlists
- fully manual or automatic mixing (one-click beat-matching)
- video mixing (including pitch, break, reverse, scratch on video)
- timecoded vinyls/CD support
- seamless intelligent looping and "skipbeat"
- automatic BPM detection (grid like) with batch-mode function
- vinyl simulation including scratch, pitch, reverse play, brake
- separate headphones output and song pre-listening
- support for VST effects and AudioUnits, eqs, filters
- analog input for microphone/turntables/CD-players, Talk-Over
- controllers supported natively (zero-configure):
  Behringer BCD2000/3000, M-Audio Xponent, Reloop DJ-IE2, Vestax, all Hercules
- additional MIDI IN with LEARN - assign knobs/switches to fx parameters
- advanced support for external mixers
- pitch scaling for harmonic/key mixing
- advanced auto-mixing including Mix-In/Mix-Out (Cue In/Out) points
- perceptual automatic gain
- sample player (sampler)
- record your mixes to WAV or AIFF
- KeyLock (MasterTempo) with on/off selector, gradual pitch bend
- ASIO/CoreAudio low-latency support
- browsing system with unlimited lists, disk explorer, database, iTunes support
- load the whole song in RAM memory for instant access
- audio-cd support on Win/Mac (intelligent cd detection/loading)
- can read mp3, m4a, wav, aiff, ogg, cda, mpeg, avi, mov, mkv, wmv and more

Itunes playlists are supported as is Video mixing. Its not as well known as Tracktor or Virtual DJ but for £59 its tempting as the full features of Virtual Dj pro are only available when you shell out £200+

Like I said i've been going crazy with a demo version and it even got the thumbs up from the wife so once I get my hands on this then i'll give it a proper review. Make sure you try it out though here
