For nearly 18 years now PCDJ products have been used by professional Club DJs, Mobile DJs and Karaoke Hosts in over 57 countries. We’ve built our brand and reputation as leading edge providers of live performance products.
Back when the Digital DJ revolution began, PCDJ offered two completely free DJ mixing software products in PCDJ PHAT and PCDJ Broadcaster. With over 3 million downloads and around 400,000 hours of use of our free versions over a short period of time it was clear — everyone wanted to mix music; they wanted to be the DJ.
Built using the same underlying technologies found in big brothers DEX 3 and DEX RE, DEX 3 LE is user-friendly, free DJ software for beginner DJs. DEX 3 LE may be equipped with less overall features than PCDJ pro editions but it’s no slouch either, with functionality beyond many of the pay-for DJ software on the market today.
DEX 3 LE is a great solution for a beginner DJ to learn the basics of mixing music digitally on a computer. Not designed to be used with a DJ controller like our pro editions, you can mix efficiently with only a keyboard and mouse — use the LEARN feature to map keyboard shortcuts any way you deem fit.
Some of the more advanced features found in our free DJ mixing software are Beat-Grid based Beat-Sync, Automix (autoplay), Effects, Automatic Looping, Hot Cues, Automatic Gain Control, Scratching, support for your own music files (all formats), iTunes and Pulselocker — an in-app subscription that provides access to unlimited music right inside the DEX 3 LE browser. If you want to jump start your Digital DJ career or just want access to pretty much every song known to mankind, Pulselocker with our free DJ software make for a perfect pairing — just add your computer and you’re ready to start mixing just like a pro!
