DJ Software Update: DEX 3.0.1 Maintenance Release Launched

Our much anticipated DEX 3 DJ mixing software successfully launched 2 weeks ago, and now that the “core foundation” of the all-new platform is out our users can expect a flurry of updates including new features and dex301releasedtweaks monthly.

As with any new performance application once it’s in the hands of the public, with thousands of various configurations, machine specifications and DJ controllers — small maintenance patches are necessary to address any found issues, or to fine tune features for optimal performance on all platforms.

DEX 3.0.1 is now available for download.  Here are the notable updates included in the maintenance release:
  • Fixed slow searching bug (for MAC users experiencing a lag while using search / it’s snappy now!)
  • Changed max favorite folders to 128 (up from 32)
  • Added .divx extension support (files would play in previous release, but only if you changed file extension to .avi.  No longer necessary)
  • Various small bug fixes

For existing DEX 3 DJ software owners, download the patch HERE (will install directly over-top your existing version)

    Do we need to backup our favorite lists before installing the patch? In other words, will the patch wipe out existing lists?

    Ryan, Thanks for giving me the opportunity to use the pre-release of DEX3. I’ve used the full version a couple of times now and have to say that this program makes my nights so much easier. During the pre-release I had asked you if you could download from the internet while playing Karaoke, another words the karaoke video stays on the monitor while I download? Is this a setting in the DEX3 or a setting in the computer to make? Either way I’d appreciate any help. I know you said you don’t recommend doing this but I have a very fast computer and I only use it for DJing. So far I have had no problem downloading while playing audio files but just can’t figure out how to keep the video on my monitor when playing karaoke. Thanks again!

      Thanks for the feedback Verne!

      Since when you minimize DEX 3 it will indeed minimize the screen 2 video output, what you can do instead is shrink DEX 3 on your own display. If you double click the top bar on DEX 3 you will see that it positions the skin to where you can now grab a corner of it. If you grab a corner, you can drag and resize the skin to any size you want (really really small if you wish). This way, you can bring up your browser next to DEX 3 without minimizing it, and download karaoke tunes. We are looking at a way to enable the video to remain full screen while minimizing the app, this would come in a future free update.

    Hello ryan, you state that the update will simply install over-top our existing version and update it, it will not affect settings or our library. but update I had 2 icons: 1 for the dex2 and the second for Dex3. Therefore all my key points songs I have save on dex 2 were not uploaded on dex 3 (in other word the key points are lost on dex 3).
    Please how do i import songs without losing the key point).

    thanks for your helps

      Hello, sorry I think I’ve confused you! DEX 3.0.1 is an update to DEX 3.0. It will indeed install right over-top of version 3 and update it. DEX 3 is however a completely different platform from DEX 2, everything has been redesigned. It installs separately, and uses it’s own assets. It’s basically a new application, built from the floor up and the foundation for the next 5-10 years of future updates/development.
