DJ Software Feature Spotlight | New Karaoke Features In 3.3.3
We recently launched free 3.3.3 updates to DEX 3 and RED Mobile 3 and Karaoke DJs will enjoy some of the changes and new tweaks.
Most notable is the change to the singers list/side list present in both our DJ software platforms.
Many of our software users expressed the need to inject filler music (bumper music) in between singers — and in previous versions of DEX 3 and RED Mobile 3 doing so would mean the next singers display (next three singers that are displayed on the singers screen 2) would not show singers below the audio tracks in the sidelist, otherwise truncating it. Now in 3.3.3 both DJ software platforms will display your next three singers when the deck is idle, no matter where they are in the list.
For Example, if your side list looks like this:
- Karaoke Song – Singer RYAN
- Regular Music
- Regular Music
- Karaoke Song – Singer ANNA
- Regular Music
- Karaoke Song – Singer MADISON
You would see Ryan, Anna and Madison displayed on the singers screen when the deck is stopped, even through there regular tracks in between them.
Another minor tweak that makes a quality difference is the background behind the singers on the next singers screen is now jet black, instead of grey — which we’re sure you’ll agree is more aesthetically on point.
In the video below I’ll show you how these new features work in DEX 3, and touch on another search feature Karaoke DJs will surely want to use.
I would like it if PCDJ DEX3 could automatically save the singers rotation. Also if it could keep a song record for each singer. Most nights singers come up and say “just throw me in for a song!” That works great with PCDJ Karaoki. Right now I’m using both PCDJ DEX3 and PCDJ Karaoki because of this. Does DEX3 already have singer management tool for this? Or is this something that could be added in one of the program updates?
Hello Treyva! DEX 3 doesn’t currently save any singer/song history data like Karaoki. But we’ll be looking into adding this later this year, among other karaoke features!
Do you think KCP will be available for Dex anytime soon? 🙂
“Soon” is relative 😉
We will look at it later this year. We have a music subscription service in mind for DEX 3 first and are exploring options for that. Check back at the end of June!
I too would love you to add saving the singers history, it is so helpful with my regulars saving me loads of time, it would be the icing on the cake. thanks gary
Hi Gary, this is on our “to-do” list! Look for it later this year. We have a couple major updates to get out between now and August, so it would be after then. Thanks!
I would like it if you made the it so when a regular song is playing it would continue to show the next singers. In your video you inputted three people but it only showed it once because you used the mix now button. If you can implement this my patrons would love it. Also if there was a way to only show the singers name and not the songs it would be a great option since some like to surprise others with songs.
Thanks Jay, that’s a good suggestion. I suppose if you’re just playing audio tunes between singers this would be the ideal method. When playing music videos the next singers won’t show however.
I’ll pass this along to development, thanks again!
