The public release of DEX 3.6 VDJ mixing software is now available for download.

The latest iteration of our top solution for professional DJs that mix all types of media is ready for download.

We popped the hood and tinkered with a few core components, such as the refactoring of the ‘loading engine’. This allows DEX 3.6 to support more audio, video and karaoke file variations, and loading tracks to the decks has been sped up as well. Many underlying performance improvements have been made to ensure more responsiveness while mixing than ever before.

Freshly added in DEX 3.6 is ‘video link — providing the ability to automatically load and play video clips and VJ loops when mixing only audio tracks. ‘Video Link’ benefits DJs that wish to transition seamlessly from mixing music videos to audio tracks, while still providing visuals on the mixed output display for the audience.

DEX 3.6 includes the latest Pulselocker music subscription service SDK, providing various upgrades in performance and search. Search-as-you-type is now enabled when searching Pulselocker’s massive 44 million track library, and results display quicker than in previous versions.  Various bugs were fixed in the Pulselocker SDK, including a couple reported errors when syncing tracks to your local hard drive for offline use.

We’ve swatted a few annoying bugs as well, including a memory issue present when playing music videos for long periods of time in succession and an issue prevented certain supported file types from loading into the decks. Some users were also reporting the inability to re-set the auto-out cue point for automix, which has also been addressed in DEX 3.6.

What’s New, Changed Or Fixed In DEX

  • Updated and enabled Pulselocker 1.2 SDK
  • New ability to load and play video files without an audio stream/track
  • Search-as-you-type Pulselocker search enabled (no need to manually press <Enter> key)
  • New ‘Video Link’ feature that allows you to automatically play videos and VJ clips with audio tracks
  • Automatically configure audio for controllers (if the controller script implements it) + setting to disable/enable it
  • New controller actions and notifications for sampler (very easy to add normal/instant/stutter mode + led blinking to sampler leds on the controller)
  • Video tab panel added to settings
  • Completely refactored the file loading system (including multiple bug fixes)
  • Fixed loading of MP4 files that are actually audio-only (some MP4s with album artwork were loaded by mistake as video tracks)
  • Fixed reported crash when analyzing/loading tracks with silence only (no audio)
  • Fixed microphone problems with various DJ controllers
  • Automatically enable On-Air when Talk is used
  • Multiple performance optimization’s

      Hello Keith,

      This would be one of two things – one, in options under the audio tab the incorrect output device is selected (most likely the case). Or Two, you have dead links in your library (if you can’t even LOAD a track to the deck that would be a bad/dead link to the physical file so the path has changed since they previously worked).

      Let us know! Thanks

    Does this update solve an issue I have of moving from history to other folders and back to history, when I go back to history it brings me to the beginning instead of where I left off at? It should remember where you left off when bouncing around from folder to folder instead of starting at the beginning.

      I don’t think that was ever reported as an ‘issue” per say – as when you jump from any list to list it returns to the top. It’s a good feature/change suggestion however – and I suggest (if you haven’t already) putting in into the wishlist forum for DEX 3 HERE

      I can see how this would be useful for some, indeed. So please place the request in the wishlist forum to share with the DEX 3 user community. Thanks!
