Pro Tip: How to Seamlessly Download New Tracks to DEX 3 or LYRX for DJs and Karaoke Hosts

Importing Downloads into DEX 3 or LYRX automatically

Today, I’m diving into a common scenario that DJs and karaoke hosts face: the need to quickly add new tracks to their playlists to fulfill on-the-spot song requests. We all know that despite the vast libraries in DEX 3 and LYRX, including streaming options like TIDAL in DEX 3 and Party Tyme Karaoke in DEX3/LYRX, sometimes the exact track your crowd is demanding just isn’t there. So, what do you do when the built-in options fall short, and you find that perfect version online but dread the hassle of adding it to your set without a system reboot or tedious manual upload?

Fret not, for the solution is simpler than you might think, turning this daunting task into a slick, seamless process. Let’s walk through how you can keep the party going without skipping a beat.

Downloading Tracks into DEX 3 or LYRX

Step 1: Get Set with Google Chrome

First thing’s first: ensure you have Google Chrome installed on your Windows or Mac computer. This is going to be your gateway to quickly downloading new tracks directly into your DEX 3 or LYRX library.

Step 2: Nest and Set

Before we dive into Chrome, make sure you’ve got a specific folder nested under favorites in your DEX 3 or LYRX. This little organizational trick is going to be a lifesaver, trust me.

Step 3: Chrome Configuration

Now, let’s tweak Chrome to make your life easier:

  • Open Chrome and click on the three dots in the upper right corner – that’s your menu.
  • Hit “Settings” and scroll down to “Show advanced settings”.
  • Find the “Downloads” section.

Step 4: Direct and Download

Here’s where you make the choice:

  • Click “Change” to pick a new default download spot – this should be the folder you’ve nested in your DJ software.
  • Or, select “Ask where to save each file before downloading” for full control over each download. Remember, consistency is key to keeping things streamlined, so always save to the nested folder.

Step 5: Wrap It Up

Finish off by closing the “Settings” tab. You’re all set!

That’s all there is to it. Now, whenever you find yourself needing to download a new track through Chrome, it will automatically save in your pre-selected, nested folder. Jump back into DEX 3 or LYRX, click on your favorites, and voilà, your fresh track awaits, ready to be unleashed on your eager audience.

Remember, keeping your library fresh and responsive to your audience can set you apart in the dynamic world of DJing and karaoke hosting. With this simple setup, you’re not just playing music; you’re curating an experience that feels personal and spontaneous. So go ahead, embrace those on-the-fly requests, and keep the party lively and engaging with your newfound, seamless track-adding skills.
