You’ve been asking for it.
And we’ve been listening. Here it is, the first public beta of DEX 3 Pro that includes a myriad of new karaoke-specific features that are surely going to have you singing its praises.
And you know what? This is only the beginning. The first in a series of DEX 3 Pro karaoke feature upgrades that will further our goal in making DEX 3 the true all-in-one entertainment software suite for today’s versatile DJ.
DEX 3 Pro has been equipped with the karaoke software basics for some time. But as the karaoke features have slowly grown, culminating in the inclusion of the Party Tyme Karaoke subscription integration, so have the requests for improved karaoke support such as a managed singer rotation, singer history, and more.
As you can see in the list of changes and updates below, DEX 3 version 3.10 is well on it’s way to becoming as robust a karaoke show hosting solution as it is for DJing and video mixing.
The new DEX 3 Pro version 3.10 is a public beta and a release candidate. This means while we’ve tested extensively in-house it still requires a bit more by the masses. You can download the update below and install directly overtop your existing version. If you feel the need to roll back to the prior public release you can find it here on the DEX 3 Pro support page.
Please be sure to check your email and/or keep a tab on this blog for more news regarding more karaoke updates for DEX 3 Pro (coming soon).
