The official public release of DEX 3.16 is ready for download!
DEX 3.16 is here and as always, it’s a free update for DEX 3 DJs. Learn more below and download and install the update from the DEX 3 support page.
DEX 3.16 brings new karaoke-specific features and extensive optimizations and bug fixes for both the latest macOS’s (Catalina and Big Sur) and Windows 10. The two most notable feature additions that should have KJ’s crooning are the built-in KSR (Karaoke Singer Request) system that allows you to host your karaoke songbook online so your singers can view, search, and make requests from their own mobile device that are sent to the DEX 3 karaoke rotation list, and the new Karaoke Singer Scroll/News Ticker.
After extensive public testing on the PCDJ User Group, DEX 3.16 is ready for live performance. We suggest DEX 3 customers update to 3.16 today!
