DJ Software | New DEX Public Beta Available For Download!

DEX DJ and karaoke software update

Version of DEX 3 is now available for download!

Below you will find download links for a new release candidate (public beta) of DEX Like the previous and recent 3.10 public releases of DEX 3, also centers around karaoke functionality and is the first of 2-3 scheduled updates to further improve karaoke support.

We’re commitment to creating the most complete entertainment software solution; DJ software that is just as robust for hosting karaoke as it is for mixing music and music videos.  It’s abundantly clear from the feedback we’ve received from DEX 3 users that having all the tools necessary to host a professional karaoke show is important to them, which is and has been a driving force behind recent DEX 3 development plans.

Since version is a public beta and a release candidate we suggest you test thoroughly before using at your events. If you need to re-install the public release (version you can simply re-download and re-install from the DEX 3 support page. Be on the lookout for additional DEX 3 updates over the next few weeks.

We are having an open discussion regarding the new DEX public beta on the new Official PCDJ User Group on Facebook. Feel free to join and share your thoughts with the community!
