We’re exited to announce that Beatport LINK and Beatsource LINK support has been added to DEX 3.15.2. 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. Search on-the-fly, create playlists, and access curated playlists created by DJs all over the world — all from within the DEX 3.15.2 file browser. Whether you’re a Mobile DJ that needs the latest and hottest music to fill every request, or a Club DJ looking to mold your sound with the latest electronic tracks, Beatport LINK and Beatsource LINK have you covered.
Beatport LINK, the leading source of electronic music for DJs, includes over nine million tracks. Mix tracks from Beatport’s huge catalog, access curated selections from artists and labels, and create your own instantly ready playlists. It’s the most powerful record collection on the planet, available anywhere — even offline* (*with LINK Pro and LINK Pro + subscription options).
Beatsource LINK is your source for multiple genres of music, and a great option for Mobile DJs that also take requests. DJ any type of event with their expansive catalog of open-format music. Whether it’s a house party, festival, corporate gig or wedding, you’ll be covered with Beatsource. Just like Beatport LINK, you can also download tracks for offline playback with a LINK Pro or LINK Pro+ subscription.
What does this all mean for DEX 3 DJs? It means you can mix and match your collection of tunes with the massive multi-million song catalogs of two of the best new streaming platforms for professional DJs. LINK is your link to music.
Also included in the DEX 3.15.2 public beta are a number of new key detection options and key color coding for easier visual key matching. DJs now have 5 different ways (notations) to view Musical Key. More on this and how you can make use of it during your mix sessions in a future blog post.
Since DEX 3.15.2 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.
