DJ Software Creators Digital 1 Audio Launch DEX 3.4, a Major Update for Their Leading Mac and Windows Live Performance Mixing Software for Mixing Music, Videos, Karaoke

August 5, 2015 by Mobile Beat

“With each update DEX 3 is fine-tuned to meet the vast requirements of today’s versatile Digital DJ” says gI_124278_broadcastmix-coverimageDigital 1 Audio’s General Manager Ryan Sherr. “The 3.4 update introduces a few highly-requested features, most notably the ability to real-time connect (or disconnect) up to 8 DJ controllers, Windows 10 support as well as internet radio broadcasting.” Sherr Continues “Users of DEX 3 can now broadcast their mix show online using the built-in Icecast support. Internet Radio is big, and offers a platform for new DJ software users to hone their DJ skills in front of a virtual audience.”

Here are some of the notable features and/or improvements in DEX 3.4:

  • Revamped BPM detection engine: DJs can count on more accurate BPMs and beat grids, making sync and beat aware effects work more effectively;
  • Windows 10 Fully Supported: Can safely upgrade machine to Windows 10;
  • Icecast support: Can now broadcast DJ live mix online;
  • Scratch tab/panel on the 2-decks skins: New scratch tab displayed side-by-side waveforms for easy visual beat sync and scratching reference;
  • Loop points: Can now save and recall loops using a new loops/cues toggle;
  • Loop “Slip mode” setting: When exiting a loop in slip mode the track will continue as if no looping occurred (from the position it ought to be);
  • Auto-Cueing completely revamped:

Automatically detected mix-in and mix-out cue points (IN/OUT) – trimming off silence automatically;
Setting to use either soft sounds or percussion for the in/out cue points detection (can have it skip quiet intros, or start at the first audible sound);
Setting to utilize the new autocue when loading and for Auto-Mix;

  • Effects engine refactoring: Overall effects quality improvements and leveling;
  • Revamped Effects: Bit Crusher – Robot Delay – Temolo – And new redesigned High-Pass and Low-Pass Filters;
  • Various Samplers improvements: Includes Sampler play modes (normal, stutter, instant/momentary), recording, waveform, cutoff filter, monitoring (pre-listen);
  • DJ Controller Support: Controllers can now be detected using USB VID:PID also on Mac;
  • Automatic detection of arrival/removal of DJ MIDI controllers: Can now plug-in or disconnect DJ controllers DEX 3.4 is running. EXPLANATION: Able to start DEX 3.4 and connect or disconnect any (supported DJ controller) MIDI controller and DEX 3.4 will detect it on-the-fly. Can start DEX 3.4 without a DJ controller connected and then add or remove controllers (up to 8 at the same time) and they will be detected and start working automatically and immediately. DJ controller detection works on both Mac and Windows. This feature is really great if a controller hangs for some reason (user would simply power it off and then back on — or remove it and then add it back) ; alternatively, user may want to hook an additional controller (for additional control over features like the sampler);
  • Denon MC-6000 MKII DJ Controller is fully supported;
  • Numark Mixtrack Pro 3 DJ Controller is fully supported;
  • Search Change: When exiting search DEX 3.4 restores the last viewed list/folder;
  • Graphics rendering improvements: Graphics will appear sharper with very sharp on-screen text;
  • Drag & drop files from Explorer / Finder: Can now drag files from windows explorer directly into DEX 3.4 lists (current list or side list);
  • Various performance optimizations.
