All new features and changes in DEX, a free update for all DEX 3 users, are listed below. Be sure to watch both tutorial videos for a walk-through of the new karaoke singer rotation list, singer/song history, and automatic filler music features. All included features can be used with the Party Tyme Karaoke Subscription service or with your own karaoke music or video library.

Also included are a few ease of use items such as being able to drag a song to position in the sidelist/automix list and a new shuffle option accessible via the sort menu. We’ve also addressed a few small bugs and improved overall performance to ensure even better stability.

DEX is PCDJ’s most complete DJ mixing software solution ever. While we’ve already made great strides towards creating the best all-in-one live performance software product on the market — we’re just ramping up!

    Looking good…But 2 things..
    Is there a way to adjust the volume of the background player?
    Is Dex3 eventually going to able to incorporate the Remote Karaoke Request system for Phone requests?

      Hi Jeff, thanks! I assume you would just adjust the volume level from your external mixer as you normally would. You can use a separate sound card or output (on a multi channel pro-audio interface) for the filler music player so you can send to an independent channel on your mixer (so you can adjust volume levels there). The filler music player uses the same perceptual automatic gain feature as the regular DEX 3 decks as well (so all songs will play at the same level).

      And yes, DEX 3 will eventually be able to handle remote singer/song requests 🙂
