OK DJs, here’s your chance to provide your list of features you would like to see added to DEX 3 RE!
We will check these forums often for your feedback and suggestions.
Bombs Away!March 22, 2016 at 2:49 pm #7325
Hi ryan a few things i would like to see added to RM3
1: when the database is made it would be handy to have one database for music and a seperate one for Karaoke
so if you had to change a hard drive for what ever reason or do an update and reorganisation it would make life a lot easier? Or get the database to recognise duplicate files, debs karaoke & sax & Dotty does that is there a reason PCDJ dont ?
2: A seperate side list for music & karaoke? so have the music in a play list that will auto load from the play list but just have the karaoke as a drag and drop option ?
3: A video window like Dex 3 to view the karaoke song thats playing in the interface, that way KJ doesnt have to leave his post when singing and is in full control of the operation.i like dex 3 but i find it too complicated and cluttered for my likingMarch 23, 2016 at 6:09 am #7334
I’m so glad you guys are opening up a discussion on a wish list for the PCDJ products. We have emailed each other on this wish a few times so now I’m hoping that the “coding gods” will grant it this time.
My #1 wish is it have Red3 search songs by “Date Added”. When I update my music every week with iDJPool I’m uploading 20-30 songs or sometimes I will miss a few weeks of updates and load 50-60-70 songs at a time and it would be great to search all the songs I recently added in Red3 without switching and going into iTunes especially when I haven’t put them in a playlist yet.
Thanks again and I’ll be looking for an Red3 update soon…… wishing really hard.
Best to you,

I wanted to check in to see how the wish list is going and although there are only 2 “wishes” I’m wondering if they will become a reality soon?
I look forward to hearing for you soon.

While there’s only two posts, there are a few requests 🙂
The wishlist forum is here for development to review and people to share their wants, of course. However, we will not post timelines publicly, or tip our hat to exactly what’s coming and when. Just know that these items are not going unnoticed!
ThanksJune 10, 2016 at 8:12 am #8268
I would like to be able to sort or move my play lists. Either alphabetize or drag them.
I like the idea of the sort feature by date added as wellOctober 25, 2016 at 12:48 pm #10386
I know that you can record mixes from Dex3, but would it be possible to record Karaoke too? I use a Dynacord MP7 mixing desk which I could send back to my laptop input with the music and vocals mixed together but would Dex3 accept this?February 11, 2017 at 1:23 pm #12154
Has been a long while since I’ve visited PCDJ forums. Glad I found the new version, too.
As always I also appreciate a wish list.
As another poster suggested I would love to be able to sort my user-created lists (folders/cases).
As many have said since the feature was removed I would really like to be able to auto-play from any list/folder and not just from the side list. it is just not “DJ friendly” when you want to auto-play while you prep a list of requests, other songs, etc…
Thanks for asking!

I was reading your reply below from another post and I would find it very helpful if I could determine if I was seeing multiple “old tags/links” versus multiple versions of the same file (song). However, I certainly don’t want to delete all the user lists I have created.
“The issue is that the search cache/internal database are ‘hidden’ and will still contain the old tags/links from the duplicate files. We are working on a recurse function that will automatically address this, but for now you would really have to delete the DB file from documents -> PCDJ-DEX3 -> database (inside that folder). This will clear out everything from the database list, to user lists and the internal database and search cache. So you would be starting with a completely fresh empty browser.February 11, 2017 at 1:33 pm #12158
One more wish:
More (frequent) forum participation from all the PDCJ users out there!
And how about a way to delete forum posts I’ve created?
Ooops! That would be two wishes wouldn’t it? How about a hope and a wish? Dream and a prayer?
PMBFebruary 11, 2017 at 1:44 pm #12161
I still have the scrolling issue that Ryan and I tried to troubleshoot a long while back. If I don’t get the far right column in just the right place and then lock it when I go to drag the side bar in any section it responds like I’m using a touch screen and dragging the list down rather than trying to drag the scroll bar down so the list moves up (you know from the first song to the 100th song not vice versa).
PMBFebruary 15, 2017 at 8:14 am #12211
hi ryan trust you well, its been a very long time iv just purchased the new software and that seems really very good thank you
just a few comments that would be very handy. being able to change the background colour and font colour.
and iv just run out of user list space, need a few more ta, or as you did in the original red 5.2 have 70> then abba>northern> etc?
can the slide toggle thats semi clear, can it have a colour? im struggling to see it or find it
i have dex re here on test at the moment with just one user list selected, its not moving down the centre list as it plays a track, it just plays the same two songs over and over, am i doing somthing wrong?
is there a way of moving the user lists up and down so the ones youre playing at the time e.g. 70s can be put to the top instead of say 2017 music. and maybe colour the active one. i have just spent the last three days loading it whith music its nice to see it will handle many thousands. im so impressed with the new version i just have a these few niggles that may or may not be me thank you bernieFebruary 17, 2017 at 7:55 am #12247
Ryan, are you out there? You usually respond pretty quickly to posts with questions.
PMBMarch 26, 2017 at 7:28 am #12668
hi iv been using the new dex3 re (220.127.116.11) for a month or so, i have a couple of issues 1) i find it difficult to read being white txt on black, black text on a light background is so much easier to see and maybe a point size or two bigger, 2) when its played down the play list how do i make it move to the next list over? or how do i make it play tracks from the main list (middle one) instead of just playing the last 2 tracks it loaded off the play list over and over till it get manual input?
couldnt find any help on these issues
thank bMay 12, 2017 at 9:12 am #13224
I know this has been mentioned before, but is there any development on adding Songbookdb to Dex3 so that requests are automatically loaded to the playlist?
I am a huge fan of Dex3 and Songbookdb. Having the 2 working side by side would be perfect.

First of all, congrats on the release of 3.8, i am very impressed with it. Coming to improvements for the next version.
1/. When I am VJ’ing and then going to karaoke I dont want the track to play till i am ready. So a dedicated mix now for karaoke button would be useful that would end the current playing track cross fade to the waiting karaoke and STOP…waiting for the next press of play to continue….people are notoriously slow when being called up and other things come up from time to time, The other way would be a button that allows current player to run but cross fades to karaoke player but not starting the karaoke track. That way when set on external mixer you can continue to play music till the singer is ready to go…and hey presto no gaps….I already do this by leaving the current player running but it would be nice for the cross fader to fade and display the karaoke so that potential singer can see it on the screen…i havent been keen on using the karaoke setting on pcdj as it shows the order of singers and means you cannot change it so easilyMay 21, 2017 at 8:51 am #13395
So I wanted to repost to see if Dex 3 RE will ever have the option to search songs by “Date Added”. When I update my music every week with iDJPool I’m uploading 20-30 songs or sometimes I will miss a few weeks of updates and load 50-60-70 songs at a time and it would be great to search all the songs I recently added in Dex 3 RE without switching and going into iTunes especially when I haven’t put them in a playlist yet. I have created a few “Smart Lists” but they aren’t as helpful as a “Most Recent” list.
Love to get a few ideas from you or other posters.
Hope to see it happen one day

a few ideas for a wish list
i was trying to compile a special play e.g happy birthday, a fanfare, first dance, etc. and the 10 or so must plays as well as a general play list, it got to be impossible to add the special requests and general plays for several reasons mainly it keeps wanting to play the track id just added this is awkward when its for the first dance, so i was thinking it would be a great idea if red had 3 scalable columns instead of 2. along with a bigger font or an adjustable one and how about changing the background colour. next: have all the artists names in say purple as a permanent or something that stands out. it would be a good idea if the user folders were movable. at the moment i have to create the folders in reverse order, but to be able to move them if im playing say a 60s night i can put that folder at the top instead of 12 down and keep scrolling for it, it would also be a good idea to add a button that opens notepad it would save me having a bit of paper up against the screen or some way of making notes would be very helpful, also if the push wheel auto scroll mouse function was activated. but above all i would like to see black text on a light background with a scalable font or font options or just a bigger font. i am so struggling with the font issue, i seem to spend more time trying to read the titles than read the audience, i would hate to go back to the old red version.
oh yes while i remember, in the play list when i right click to load a track to either deck or use the load button, it fails to remove it from the play list it then will load it all over again in the other deck and plays it and if i dont remove it manually it will keep on loading it again and again.
cheers bernMay 26, 2017 at 8:09 pm #13498
This may seem very simple to some, but I would like to see a small clock added to keep track of time. This can be useful when your doing a wedding or other event that goes by a schedule.August 6, 2017 at 1:20 pm #14512
I would like to see the version column put back. As was in the red mobile. as i said before. i bought the Dex, have had it for over a year but still using the red mobile. I know you said the Dex is your own development, but to redesign something and just drop thing people got use to is not good. then for you just to say use another column is also not what i wanted to hear. i am looking for another DJ software to use as i don’t know what you will suddenly drop when you produce a new software. new software is good but removing things we got use to is not good. I have to switch between Red and Dex. Dex for karaoke and red for DJing. as a reggae DJ, reggae has lots of riddim track. same riddim different lyrics. I use the version column to group them together. giving different name to different riddim.
I once praised your software but find it had to know.

hi ryan i would like to see and auto save or a save button so its like most other programs that saves automatically as they go along rather than save when its closing down its a bit of an inconvience adding track whilst your at a gig and cant save it. and some way of locking off protecting the track listings make then read only, twice iv deleted an entire list by accident because it wasn’t clear which column i was on, so thinking i was on the play list i deleted it and it turned out to be the list i was working on. oops. i would also like to see a way of adding a cue point to tracks so it will alway go there when clicking cue. same as in red. and the usual better colours, black on white, bigger fonts, requests list e.g a wait list as per the original red turn it on turn it off, some way of adding temp notes
bernSeptember 10, 2017 at 4:33 am #14887
hi ryan is there a way of making the track entries protected so you can’t accidently delete or remove the track entry from the list? i find it difficult to tell which list is working and i accidently remove a track from the list so now ive no idea which song/s were removed. and can you make an auto save, thanksOctober 3, 2017 at 3:17 pm #15112
I would like this version to have the key change added for Karaoke tracks.
Then this would be perfect for me.
ThanksNovember 26, 2017 at 6:00 pm #15662
Hi Ryan, I’m not so sure this should be a “wish,” as it seems more like a bug, but perhaps there is some positive aspect to this implementation I am not understanding. But i believe that when you turn autoplay off, the crossfader should return to the middle. If there is indeed some advantage to having it stay 100% on the playing deck when autoplay is turned off, then perhaps there could be an option for one or the other.November 26, 2017 at 6:03 pm #15663
Hi Ryan, It’s a rather small thing but it sure would be nice if when you hit the “X” to clear the search box, the cursor automatically came up in the search box to start typing.December 2, 2017 at 5:16 am #15774
hi ryan subject wish list: a few ideas
i would like to see
an auto save: because iv had a few instances where iv been making new playlists and something goes wrong
bigger fonts or adjustable font size not by much variable by 2 to 4 point sizes might be good
different coloured text and background
and auto: update might be good
be able to move the play lists up or down ( column on the left)
being able to leave it to play from the main playlist as well as being able to have a like a wait list. so in essence when its run out of track in the play list (far right) it will then start playing from the centre list so theres continual music and not as now it just plays the same two songs over and over till its got new songs. a bit awkward once in a while when im away talking to clients and it takes longer than expected. or like now i just want some music so i can leave it to play.
or add a wait list aswell with a toggle button
make the scroll bars permanent or more visible.
i think that will do for now.
i must say i do like this version its on a par with red
thanks bernieDecember 4, 2017 at 12:50 pm #15800
i have another idea can you make the clock the same size as the word DEX on the left corner and maybe swap them over put DEX in the middle? and what about some way of writing notes e.g notepad so they stay on top so they can be read when you have a bride and groom, birthday etc dedications etc.

i have a comment do you think you could fix this issue? when i load a track from the play list (right column) if i load the track manually ( click the top button or right click and load deck> it then dosen’t remove it from the play list, if i just let RE load the track it will then remove the track from the list. are you aware or this?
cheers bernieJanuary 10, 2018 at 11:45 am #16135
Here’s a couple for ya. Is there a way to search by BPM? If not will it be added. Next I would love to keep my Karaoke list separate from the rest of the music when adding tracks to the right.
Note: I am running into an issue on my Mac. When I clear the search bar with the x. It freezes up the software. It won’t let me do anything except hard restart of the software.
ThanksMarch 15, 2018 at 12:11 pm #16889
Ability for DEX 3 RE to clear (or turn off) Auto Mix when the program is closed.
Current Behavior: When I manually stop Auto Mix by stopping the deck that is currently playing and then close the application, Auto Mix stays “on” and when I relaunch the application, it immediately begins playing whatever was in the Auto Mix from the previous session.
Thanks!! (And fingers crossed!!)April 7, 2018 at 5:04 am #17269
hi ryan, do you think we could have a fix for the the fact that when it runs out of tracks in the play list it just plays the same two songs over and over and over, instead of swapping to the next recordcase over. can you fix this please. also can you fix the movement of the recordcase’s so they can be moved up or down depending on the type of music thats being played im having to keep scrolling up and down to find the right case e.g. 70s that is a some way down the list from the current chart list at the top. im sure you know what i mean. (when we had red 5.2 you could move the cases up and down) and can we have a separate play list that can be turned on and off so i can store the bride and grooms requested music separately from the main play list they get really upset if there song is played by accident before there first dance ta. and maybe an option to increase the point size and a some way to high lighting artist names, it already does purple on a search so its relatively easy to do, or maybe a customisation package, skins etc would be a useful add on. but i must say it works very well, but its a struggle to read the screen at time.
and is there a way to add a cue point or put a movable cue point on a track and keep it there instead of having to re cue the track every time i need play the track? in essence i load the track and it automatically loads at the right place?
thanksApril 30, 2018 at 2:50 pm #17604
Another plug for this one – I have quite a few User Lists (Playlists) that I imported which loaded alphabetically because of the way I brought them in. Now that I’m adding new ones, they end up at the bottom of the list and I have to scroll down to access when I’m doing a wedding, for example, where I’ve created a list for specifically. In addition, there are some playlists I want at the top just because of priority. It would be great to have this flexibility by either being able to manually drag lists in order or rename so that they resort alpha-numerically.
And while we’re on the subject of playlists, when I access a playlist and it displays in the main list (search results), if I right-click and select Clear List, it also removes the songs from the User List. I didn’t want to delete the songs in the User List, I just wanted to clear the display. Is it supposed to work that way? Kinda bummed because I added a bunch of songs at a gig the other night to one of my existing playlists and lost my work 🙁May 1, 2018 at 2:51 am #17609
can we have a border at the bottom of the window because if you use a left/right scroll bar its next to impossible to select the tracks under the scroll. and some way of being able to move the playlists up and down so i dont have to keep scrolling up and down or when i add an new play list it only goes to the bottom what a pain when im wanting to play anything other than todays music. new at the top working my way down through 15+ different playlists. i have the free version of red as well and its all coloured up how about adding some colour to the text and play lists? thanks
bernDecember 11, 2020 at 5:44 pm #28155
Large Monitor Support! I spend most of my time at a rather large (49″) monitor, but if I want to launch DEX 3 RE, I have to make my laptop screen the primary display because DEX does not know how to render to a larger (or maybe just secondary) display. Seems like DEX has been around too long to have this very basic limitation still there. Very frustrating.

Is there a way to rip cds like on Red?
