The Main Interface
Note: The Function and Tool Windows change their display depending on the settings selected. Keep an eye on the Hint Window , as shown above. The Hint Window will display a short description of the interface features as your mouse is placed over them (no need to click). For more detailed explanations you can select the Tool Window 'Help' tab.

House Edition (limited) - The House Edition does not support VINYL / CD deck control.
2. Upgrade House to Club Edition by visiting the Image-Line Store . Digital Multiplex lighting control (DMX ) is planned for a future release and will be an optional extra feature. More information on Deckadance and other Image-Line products is available in the Product Information section of this manual or at www.image-line.com . I don't need the manual! If you read nothing else then you should read this section. A great way to learn how to use Deckadance is to experiment with it. Click on the HELP button just below the master cross-fader and hover your mouse over anything that looks like a control, and some that don?t. Keep an eye the Hint Window and the Help tab on the Tool Window to see descriptions. Finally, controls often have different functions for a left or right-click, so give anything that can be left-clicked a right-click also.

Using the ASIO4ALL Advanced Settings This section explains how to use the ASIO4ALL settings. NOTE: ASIO4ALL is a generic ASIO driver that works with most soundcards. If ASIO4ALL doesn't produce any sound we recommend that you work through all the steps below including the Troubleshooting section. highlighted dark-blue). It is a good idea to set all devices you plan to use to the same Buffer Size. There are two advantages: Speed: ASIO drivers (in general) allow lower CPU overhead and shorter buffer length than the standard Windows (DirectSound. WDM Driver). You can adjust the buffer length for each selected device (in this case the Creative SB X-Fi is selected. 3. something that is not possible with standard ASIO drivers.SETUP Audio ASIO4ALL (PC Only) For PC users the Deckadance installation includes a 3rd party ASIO driver ASIO4ALL .
