“We’ve gone well beyond creating simple DJ Mixing Software. DEX 3 is live performance entertainment software designed for today’s versatile Mobile DJ, and a great fit for venue installation,” says Digital 1 Audio’s General Manager Ryan Sherr. “The value in having one software, one robust product, that provides all the tools a DJ needs to perform with music, music videos, and host karaoke, with or without one of the 100+ supported DJ Controllers, is tremendous. In DEX 3.11 we’ve fine-tuned karaoke support, including support for the Party Tyme Karaoke Subscription service, which provides in-app access to over 15,000 HD quality karaoke songs. Karaoke hosts will also enjoy the benefit of being able to pre-adjust the key of karaoke tracks when adding them to the singer rotation list.” Sherr Continues “we’re most excited about bringing to DEX 3.11 is support for ‘Shaders’, which can now be added to DEX 3 to create beat-aware on-screen visualizations. Shader support adds to DEX 3’s already rich set of video mixing features and allow DJs to display stunning on-screen visuals when just mixing audio tracks.” DEX 3.11 also adds polish to existing features with various under-the-hood performance improvements.

  • Here are notable features and/or improvements included in DEX 3 version 3.11:
    Added Visualizations (using ShaderToy.com shaders) – DJ can add new shaders from ShaderToy.com, rename, remove them, etc
  • DJ can pre-adjust key / apply key change in the karaoke singer rotation list
  • DJ can add tracks from History that have a singer name and key change to the karaoke rotation list (the saved Singer and Key change will be used)
  • Added “Always show shaders on top of everything” setting (Video preferences tab)
  • Automatically hide/show shader in case the deck does/doesn’t have video – DJ needs to select “0 singers” in the Karaoke preferences or have an audio-only track playing if they want to see the shader; or, can simply use the new “Always show shaders on top of everything” setting

DEX 3.11’s manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $179.
The optional in-app commercially legal Party Tyme Karaoke Subscription is free to try for 7 days and $99.99-a-month thereafter.
