If I have a video/video loop made it could be used in overlays correct? Then you can just engage the overlay and continue to play background music at the same time. If not I am not sure how else to do that.
Doing some research I think I have answered my question. It looks like it can be done in overlays.
Thank you Ryan.
1. I will play with this and see if it works like I think and hope. It sounds like it will.
2. Does it also auto delete?
3. I was using spreadsheet mode.
I have loaded this new version. Some questions. I know that it is for Karaoke.
1. Can you use the case play in music mode to play background music at a wedding?
2. If you can does it grey out the songs?
3. I noticed that when you click on the history list the date and the time you played the song is gone.February 6, 2018 at 10:52 am in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #16469
How about a pop up reminder of what the color tags are for. Example I use red for explicit songs, would like to move mouse over the color red and have a memo pop up that shows explicit. That way you have a reminder of what you used the color for.
Thanks Ryan. It was a long time ago and I just must have read it wrong. It would help me out, but I am probably the only one. Will have to check out the PAG settings and see how I have it set. The only time I would use the remembered gain would be with my sports computer. I have some songs that I want to boost up or down when announcing.December 18, 2017 at 11:01 am in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #15960
It sounds like we are thinking the same. Just using different terminology. When I say playlist I mean the one on the right that will auto load. If we get auto delete on load from there like I am hoping, then it would be beneficial.December 16, 2017 at 12:35 am in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #15956
Would people be interested in a search history? I did a middle school dance and it would be nice to look at what you searched for, so you had a record of music you may want to get.
This is just a question as I have not had time to load and try 18.104.22.168. With the right click to unload a deck does it go back into the play list if that is where it was loaded from? If not that would be nice.
I have learned to always back up as I have had this happen. But I believe that it is machine related. I have two computers that I try hard to keep identical. If I lose it it only happens on the one (same) machine. It has never happened on the other one. And it has happened at least twice to me.
I have submitted a ticket for the database loss on my main computer.
When I get a chance do you want me to send a ticket of what I remember happening when this crashed from the upgrade?
Also when it started up after the first crash I lost all the user info. I have had to start rebuilding that as i can now. Just a word of advice to everyone ALWAYS back up your database before updating. I will also have to turn in a ticket for losing my database on one of my other machines. I had it backed up and restored it but it did happen to me Wednesday night.
It is WASAPI. Just using the internal card. Don’t have the ASIO option and not sure about direct sound.
Got it rolled back now will test and run it tomorrow. You can go to your download folder and just reinstall the version that you want. That is what I did. When I try to upgrade again I will do it smarter and will turn in a help desk ticket if i have problems again. Will also take better notes.
Ryan, I have not turned in a ticket as I do not have time to go thru and sort this out at this time. It is my 3rd computer that is just for sports announcing. I updated to get the tracks to grey out and did not have time to test. When I can I will send something in but will be at least a week or more.
Yes I need to go back to 22.214.171.124. I updated my sports computer to 126.96.36.199 and it crashed twice and lost all my data (user lists, cue points, etc.). Have never had a problem with 188.8.131.52 and don’t have time to trouble shoot and make it work at this time. Let me know the proper way to remove and go back. Thanks James. P.S.this is for DEX 3 not karaoke.

Yes that is correct. I knew it was on the list, we will get there. Like everything once you get used to a way to do it, it becomes easier to do and not make mistakes. So it is not bad to do now.
To me it is not a big deal, would make it a little easier for some things. My big one now that you have 3.9 out is the delete on load from the side list. The grey out after 20 seconds is sweet.
It must be something in the two main ones I use as they are set-up the same. I have a third one that i use for sports that is different then the other two and it lines up correctly. I will send in a ticket tonight when I get home.
I am using 1920×1080 also. If I use the color button to the far left, first one in the bar it is a deeper blue and when you click it, all the letters turn and stay red. Cyan is yellow. Skins are the Dex 3.8 skins. Do I need to submit a support ticket? I did not think that it was that big of a deal, but there must be something going on.
Thanks again for that info. I will do some more research tonight when I get home. When you click the say, the artist it sorts alphabetically. Then if you click again does it return it to the previous order or do another sort? Just trying to figure it out, so it can be used to my advantage if needed.

Thanks for the answer on the field sort. knowing what it does now does not bother me if I can’t turn it off. How do you chose which way you sort the field? Maybe a little video to show and explain. I will check the skins when i get home, but I have had the on screen access to the text image and video overlays for some time.July 11, 2017 at 6:08 pm in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #14140
That was the problem on the scroll bar/button. It does not have to be off by much to not work. Thanks.July 11, 2017 at 4:14 pm in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #14130
I also would like the ability to drag and drop a song where you want it on the side list from a user list. Also would like the scroll button/bar on the side list to work like the other lists. I want to be able to just click on it and drag the bar/button, now you have to just use the scroll wheel and that is harder to control when looking at your list. Also delete song from user list if manually loaded, not just when you use auto play. And songs don’t grey out until they have played for 10 seconds. These are little things I know but those type of things are what really makes the software go over the top.
I found out you have to submit a help ticket and ask them to reset your license. In case anyone else is wondering.
Ok, I will say that it was not my intention to turn this into a trouble shooting thread. More then anything this started out of me venting my frustration at what is going on. I am sorry that it morphed into more. I will attempt in the future to state that I have a support ticket or you can say this should go to support. Now if we are going to talk about doing double the work that needs to also happen on the troubleshooting end. I have been getting at least 2 people working on this issue and one day person 1 asks for the specs and I provide them and then person 2 does not read above and get on board with the problem and asks for specs that I have already supplied. Bitch over I will move on.
I have been running both computers today for over 4 hours. Straight audio no video. 1st computer (Main) just running in auto play. Started at 512 or 11.6 ms ran for a little over 45 minutes and dropped out. I have to go to the numark panel and bump the latency slider to get the sound back. Moved the latency slider to 1600 or 36.3 ms about 2 hours later the audio dropped out. Did the same as the first time to the slider to get audio back. Ran the latency to 4096 or 92.9 ms (it will not go any higher) and after about a hour and a half the audio dropped out. This time it came back on its own but dropped again after only seconds and I had to again bump the slider to get audio back. Shut it down after that.
The second computer (Backup) I started the latency at 1024 or 23.2 ms. This computer i was working and playing with. I am more then likely going to get JammText and have been playing with the video section. I want to be able to put up a few loops and make some odds and ends overlays and put up my logo. I clicked on the video setup and the extra screen button and lost my audio. Got it back by moving latency slider and tried it again and it kept playing, but dropped out two or three minutes later. Fixed the audio by the slider and set it to 2144 or 48.6 ms. Kept messing with it and it has played with no drop out for at least a hour and a half. Shut it down.
I will copy and paste this in my support ticket also.
I did read the whole article. The Scarlett just has a lot more then I really need, but if that is what it takes to solve my issues then I will be looking at them and maybe even going with a DJ controller.
The one I have is one of those you are talking about. Well lets see if it is the latency. What dj controllers seem to be the most trouble free and popular?
If I do end up going with different sound cards, what ones have seemed to work the best?
I am not mixing videos and have run it at a higher latency. Still had issues. How high on the latency? Will test that tonight.
At this point it is starting to look like it is my sound card. I run the program for 3-4 hours using the realtek drivers and the headphones output. I did not have any audio dropouts. Will get to really test again this Saturday when I do my basketball games. If it is my sound card I will get different cards, what cards do you suggest?
The numark card (DJiO2 set at 5.8 ms or 256) is and I am using ASIO (It does have WASAPI but not using). Adjusted latency higher and still had drop outs. Not seeing a way to attach file here. I have a doc that has all the specs on it so I don’t have to retype all the time. Will copy and paste.

Well that sucks for me. What I would really like to have is 2 identical computers for weddings, proms etc. Then i would need one for sports, is there a way that I can do that with the license i have now? I would need another computer obviously.
I attached a file with the list of all my specs on my help ticket. Can you look at it there? If not I will attach it here tonight when i get home. Also I have a question on how to uninstall and reinstall if needed on the general forum. Thanks. Also going to try at the suggestion of your support team to set it up with the computers audio card and not my Numark card and see if I am still getting dropouts.
Well maybe I am wrong on it having the nvidia card. I guess I looked at so many when I bought them I thought it had it. This is from HP’s site
HP Pavilion 15-au023cl (ENERGY STAR)
Intel® Core™ i5-6200U with Intel® HD Graphics 520 (2.3 GHz, up to 2.8 GHz, 3 MB cache, 2 cores)
12 GB DDR3-1600 SDRAM (1 x 4 GB, 1 x 8 GB)
Intel® HD Graphics 520
1 TB 5400 rpm SATA
Do I need to look at different machines?
Both computers only show the Intel HD card. Went to HP website and I am downloading the nvidia drivers. Wont install “can not find compatible graphics hardware”. But according to HP site it is supposed to be on my machine. Will continue to work at getting it installed.
I went through the video above and do not have the right click option to run graphics. They are windows 10 home versions. How else can I get there?
Thanks don’t have time to update to 3.7 today before my gig, will do it tomorrow so it is done for my gig Friday. Always trying to keep track of what I have done, but can be tough for exact details when you are doing much. Will make sure that it is using the right graphics.

Bought two at the same time and have done the same things to both.October 12, 2016 at 12:27 pm in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #10204
I would be fine with a manual button that I had to push, I understand what your saying about the real time writing. Did not know about the ticket support will start using that in the future.October 12, 2016 at 12:02 pm in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #10202
Ryan, I did not miss your point. I think you are missing my point. I don’t want to go any farther then this on here as it is a wishlist topic and needs to stay on track. Would be more then willing to discuss my point with you on something other then a wishlist. Again as I said in my previous post I posted the info on the crashes in the support topic (another crash) as I thought that would be the correct place to post that, not the wishlist. Will be happy again to answer questions the best that I can in that post.October 12, 2016 at 9:40 am in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #10140
Ryan, that info is posted in support forum under another shutdown. If it shuts down because of a write disk error what’s the difference in shutting down between that or clicking on the save button. You’re still shutdown. Some of those things like 2 and 3 should be done fairly soon.October 12, 2016 at 12:40 am in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #10138
8. Auto database save every 15 minutes. This is after having it crash after an hour and a half and losing a lot of work.
I have to come on here and tell about another shutdown. Just spend 1 and 1/2 hours setting up a folder for a event tomorrow, clicked on the x in the search box. It went red and I got the spinning circle and the message pcdj is not responding. Lost everything I had done for 1 and 1/2 hours setting cuepoints etc. Using 220.127.116.11. We have to get this under control.October 11, 2016 at 6:35 pm in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #10136
I have a number of things to either reopen or bring up new.
1. Still want the ability to play from 2 lists.
2.The remove from playlist on manual load.
3.The played song notification after 15 seconds of playing, not when it is loaded to a deck.
4.Right click to copy back to the playlist from a deck. So if you want to take a song out and play something else, but still want to use the song in the deck.
5. When you take off autoplay have it automatically recenter between the decks.
6. A way to turn off the art work I don’t care about it and would rather see the number of the song.
7. I would like to be able to change the playlist numbers from count up to count down. I would like to be able to see how many songs I have in the playlist and see that number at the top. Since there is no total time counter like red 5.2 this would be nice for me as I can at least rough in what kind of time I have without having to scroll to the bottom all the time.
I will probably have more in the next little bit as I do a couple of more gigs.August 15, 2016 at 6:26 pm in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #9053
Really want the copy back to side list and having it grayed out after it has played for 10,15 secs. Also want to be able to stop auto play like Ronzo has suggested. And another vote for being able to nest lists in a list. As in having a wedding list and then being able to put in event, background ect.July 25, 2016 at 1:48 pm in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #8827
Yes that is something that I use quite a bit. What about the copy back to sidelist? Like red 5.2?
Played the two songs again and nothing. As I was typing this it dropped out again. I went to latency and dropped it to 128 instead of 256 and it started playing again. Using a numark DJiO 2 sound card set to ASIO, it defaults to 256 sample rate, latency 5.8 mS.July 23, 2016 at 2:56 pm in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #8818
Still want the ability to choose a folder and just be able to play out of it. Not have to keep the sidelist full all the time.
I have upgraded to 18.104.22.168 and so far that seems to be working. As I am running it and testing I have had two sound drops. Everything playing fine and no sound. Then it just came back. I will play the two songs again just to see if it is the songs.July 23, 2016 at 2:31 pm in reply to: DEX 3 Wishlist – What Features Would You Like To See Added? #8816
Would like the ability to clear a deck of the song that is in there and leave it empty. load and unload. Would like the ability to change the history order so the most recent one you loaded is at the top. I also would like to be able to right click on a song in the side list and if I have not played the track in the deck that I am going to load it into be able to copy the unplayed track to the sidelist. This is like red 5.2. Couple of minor things I am seeing. Thanks.
I got it solved. I played with the sampler and did not assign a bpm to it.
