DEX for Mac Public Beta | New Optimizations for macOS Catalina


A public beta of DEX for macOS is available for download, now with further optimizations for macOS Catalina. 

As we announced in previous weeks, DEX 3.15 (and up) now support Beatport LINK and Beatsource LINK. Support for the two DJ-centric streaming services means DEX 3 DJ’s can access and stream millions of tracks from premium artists and producers from within the DEX 3.15 browser.

This new public beta is specific for macOS and includes a number of under-the-hood tweaks and optimizations for macOS Catalina. Specifically, DEX 3 version should manage larger music/video/karaoke libraries more efficiently, and manage resource loading better overall. What does that mean for DEX 3 macOS Catalina users? A smoother overall experience mixing during live performance and speedier searching.

Be sure to review this blog post for all the details regarding the new Beatport LINK and Beatsource LINK beta support built into DEX 3.15 as well as the new key detection/key mixing features.

Since DEX for macOS with LINK streaming support is a public beta, if you run into any issues you can share them with the user community on the Official PCDJ Facebook User Group.
