I'm still testing FutureDecks at the moment and I found many bugs in this soft, the most are small bugs. I like FutureDeck but at the moment it's a high risk for us to use it in a Dance Mainhall.
One of the biggest problems: Many files are can not loaded in the player. The player give the message: "FILE NOT LOADED". BUT: This MP3 files are running perfectly in all other DJ Software and in any MP3 Player.
And I found the problem: When I cut from this MP3 files the first 3 to 5 frames
, then I can load this files in the FutureDeck Player. I use the tool "Dr. Tag" for cutting this "bad frames". After this "repair session" all it's OK.
But this is not the solution for the problem. We can't find and repair all this "problem files" It's not possible for us to check all new songs for the FutureDeck Software. The most MP3 files are have some wrong bytes. Future Deck must handle this files with more "coolness"!!! Any other players are doing this also.
The other problem: When we cut all our MP3 files, then we "cut" MP3 with correct headers too and after this procedure FutureDeck doesn't load this files
This is at the moment our biggest problem with your software.
The other things are not so bad but not funny. Your search engine is perfect, it's very, very fast. We like it. But the philosophy of the archivebrowser we don't understand. Please take a look on other DJ Software what are good solutions to build a good song archive for DJs. You can look at: BPM Studio or Ultramixer 2 and so on. A very good song archive solution in this software. Easy to handle for DJs.
