DJ Software: DEX 3.1 Free Update Available For Download

The DEX 3.1 DJ Software update is now ready for download – a free update for all existing DEX 3 customers.

This update focuses on strengthening many of the core features, and includes many performance improvements in addition to a few new features.   The MAC version is now full 64bit compliant with improvements to the DJ controller engine.   A couple of the more anticipated updates are to the browser, where you can now use “List Mode” for a more “Excel” style layout, versus the “Word” style used in previous versions.  Songs will also not “grey out” when played during a session.

You will also receive new “DayTime Skins“, which are easier to see on daylight condition, and both skins have upgrades to the VU meters.

Here’s a list of all updates included in DEX 3.1:

DEX 3.1 Version Updates: 

  • Extensive performance optimizations and stability improvements
  • Added list-mode (table-like display mode) for current list/sidelist
    * To change between normal and list-mode right-click on the list and select “Toggle view mode” from the popup menu
    * You can: change columns order, hide/show columns, re-size columns, lock sorting or re-sizing, sort by clicking on the columns (and revert the sorting by clicking on the “No.” column header)
  • Added daytime skins (and also modified master VU-meter color for the original skins)
  • Added compatibility with iTunes 12
  • Tags support greatly improved for both reading and writing (you can now edit tags for: mp3, m4a, mp4, wav, aif, flac, ogg, wma; note that most video files (except for mp4) don’t support tags so no tag editing is possible on mov, mkv, cdg-zip, au, etc)
  • Changed functionality: you can also scroll the lists by dragging them from the right side (very useful for touch-screen users); drag-&-drop still works if you drag a track from the left side; (left 75% drag&drop / right 25% scroll)
    Improved controller engine on MacOSX
  • Loaded tracks are “greyed out” (session only)
  • Search improvements (includes fixing a search cache issue)
  • For skins designers: jog-wheel artwork now possible (spinning or not, you can also use a mask for it)
  • On Macs the app is now 64-bit (MacOSX 10.7+)
  • Known issues (to be addressed in next release):
    On some AMD-powered graphics cards (AMD APU ones more specifically) the interface might not load ok

      Paul, if you just have DEX 3/2 closed, and install DEX 3 (demo) than it will pick up the activation of the previously installed release – and open in full version mode. Should be that easy!

    I like your software it uses less resource than serato…only thing ur lacking is u need to have them wave graphs up and down in middle like serato that shows diff colors on drums, high hats, snares etc makes it more smoother to mix

      Thanks! Some of our skins already support “vertical waveform’s” – so basically, that’s due to the design of the skin. We will probably add a “scratch mode” to the default skins soon with vertical waveforms.

      Frequency colored waveform’s will also be included in a future update to DEX 3.
