Transport And DJ Mixer Controls
DEX 3 makes it easy to mix everything. The DEX 3 user interface and transport controls work much like CD Decks and include advanced mixer controls much like you find on high-end physical DJ mixers.
Use a traditional 2-Deck interface (skin) with or without video mixing controls, or layer in your mix with one of the included 4-Deck DEX 3 skins (or Download A DEX 3 Skin). BPM grid-based beat-sync, smart looping, key-lock, hot-cue points, filters and effects all work flawlessly whether you’re mixing only music or performing a music video mix for your audience.
Advanced Media File Browser With Search, Playlists And Automix
DEX 3 includes an advanced media file browser for all your music, music videos and karaoke files. iTunes playlists are also imported automatically so you can start mixing immediately.
The included library filters allow you to view only the file type you want to work with, and the fast search feature displays results as you type. Create custom playlists or generate lists from directories on your hard drive. The ‘History’ list can be filtered by date so you can go back and re-use a previous mix set. Album art and color coding makes it easy to find the song/s you’re looking for. New “List Mode” allows for a more traditional column-style layout. Playlist playback automation is built right in; engage Automix or Shuffle Play if you need a break.
100+ Compatible DJ Controllers
DJ Controllers provide hands-on tactile control over DEX 3, allowing for more creativity while mixing. Over 100 DJ controllers from popular DJ equipment manufacturers are supported, which means zero-configuration required so you can get into the mix right away. Use multiple DJ controllers at once — DEX 3 will even detect when a controller is connected in real-time. Your DJ controller isn’t included in our supported list? Use LEARN to map it easily yourself.
When you press a button, twist a knob or scratch a platter on your DJ controller DEX 3 will react immediately, without latency.

The effect controls DJs have come to expect are present, including wet/dry, BPM sync, and varied parameters per effect.
The effects section can be swapped out with the press of a button for a Sample Player, which allows you to load up 8 sound clips of your choice that can be triggered and played over-top the mix. Choose to BPM sync your samples to the master player for seamlessly drops.
