    Hello, and welcome to the forum!

    DEX 3 does NOT work with Songbookdb ‘Directly’. It’s not integrated with DEX 3 like it is with Karaoki. We plan to release a natively supported remote request application for DEX 3, but it will be of our own creation – not SongbookDB. We’re likely about 2-3 months out from completion at this time.

    If you signup for SongbookDB directly from their website, and not from PCDJ.com, you will receive a different version of SongbookDB. You CAN use it alongside of DEX 3 to accept remote requests – but you will then have to manually search for the song in DEX 3 and manually add it to rotation (that’s really the only difference when you use songbookDB as a standalone application).

    You can make DEX 3 smaller on your own display so you can see the songbookDB remote request app next to it – here’s how to resize the DEX 3 Gui:

    It would be great if you could add paste capability into DEX. Would make searches and adding singers much easier from SongbookDB. All you need to do is click on the song or the singer’s name in SongbookDB and it copies the info to the clipboard.

    Copy/Paste — Easier said than done. DEX 3 doesn’t really ‘interact’ with the underlying OS. Unlike other DJ software, DEX 3 runs in it’s own environment much like a game does (which is why there is ‘one code’ that can be deployed to Windows and MAC, and we do not have to maintain separate versions). This means we literally had to write every feature/function – even items like ‘drag and drop’. For example, it was only recently that we added the ability to drag files from explorer/finder into the browser — a 4 week project. Copy/Paste from a third-party application would have to be written from scratch. Others have requested it and it’s already in our big to-do list, but I don’t expect it soon.
