What is DeKstasy?
We all love spinning records, that's why we're DJ's, but let's face
it, keeping two tracks perfectly synced isn't always easy. Think how much
more you could do creatively if beat matching wasn't something you had to
devote your attention to. Think what you could do with 3 or 4 turntables
playing at once, all in perfect time. Maybe throw in a 303 or an 808
running off that same beat, through MIDI. And wouldn't it be nice not
to have to carry every record you might want to play at that gig tonight?
DeKstasy is for all levels of DJs -- it's easy enough for a beginner to use,
and rock solid enough for that 3-hour sunrise set. Don't be fooled by the
fact that this is free software. This product was conceived and created
primarily for live performances. Using your existing mixer and output
hardware (or the standard onboard Macintosh output), the software replaces
the functionality of your turntables and records with a slick interface
and digital audio files. With DeKstasy you can:
Encode and import tracks from Audio CDs or records, or simply import
Analyze a file's BPM and create an exact beat signature for TRUE
Play tracks on four virtual decks, all at once and all perfectly synced up.
Automatically beat match to any external audio signal -- makes
tag-teaming a breeze!
Easily loop sections of playing tracks, all live and in real time.
Carry around hours and hours worth of music, all on your laptop;
a 20GB drive will give you over 200 hours of music encoded at high quality.
Visually set up the mix without worrying about the synchronization of
the tracks, allowing you to stay focused on the mixer and not on the decks.
your tracks into virtual Crates and Albums.
With DeKstasy, we have concentrated on making the simple tasks easy,
while still allowing the pro to access sophisticated tools like a beat
signature editor, automatic synchronization to external audio source,
MIDI out, audio device channel control, and more.
Why are we different than all those other software DJ
Support for up to four stereo channels of output using any OS X
Built to be crash proof.
True automatic beat finding, and powerful tools to ensure perfect beat
MIDI sync output, so you can mix in the output of other hardware
(e.g. a 303) or software (e.g. Reason) and mix in YOUR OWN BEATS!!
Real-time waveform display, so you can see where you are in the song,
when that break is coming up, when the mix is over... you get the point.
