PCDJ Dex Review

The Good: PCDJ Dex comes as a premium over its smaller brother PCDJ Red Mobile, the winner of our DJ software comparison. For the extra money, you get access to four decks instead of two, the ability to mix both music and videos seamlessly and the same great karaoke software. Get this full version if those abilities are worth the premium to you.

The Bad: The premium price level might place it out of reach for some DJs.

The Verdict: PCDJ Dex gives you complete control of all media, allowing you to mix and match both music and video. Combine that we access to four decks and it is easily the most complete professional music mixing software solution.

What makes PCDJ Dex great DJ software?

PCDJ Dex is the best professional DJ mixing software out there for Mac and Windows. It allows both the novice and pro DJ to mix music and music videos seamlessly and even host karaoke. These last two features really set it apart from the other DJ programs in our comparison. True it comes at a premium, but if you are a pro wanting to go that extra mile, then PCDJ Dex is the way to go.

PCDJ Dex, for both mac and for pc, gives you as the DJ full control of your media, allowing you to push the mix much further than before. Blending tracks has become easier than ever using the beat-grid based automatic beat mixing, giving you that confidence to focus on other aspects of your mix. And as Dex offers no-latency playback; hot cues, loops and all playback features it is arguably to most complete solution out there for the most demanding DJs.

Dex, being a full-fledged professional music-mixing program, can be controlled by keyboard or mouse or one of the 60+ supported DJ controllers. This, the fact that is easily controlled by both novice and pro, and all features of PCDJ Red Mobile make any DJ using this DJ program elevate to levels of their game.


Why choose PCDJ Dex as your DJ program?

Seasoned DJs that demand all functionalities available today swear by PCDJ Dex. Whether it is the best solution for you, is perhaps most easily explained by why PCDJ Dex is not the winner of our review.

The answer is simple; most aspiring DJs do not require all the extra functionality that comes at a premium over PCDJ Red Mobile. In order for you to decide which solution is best for you, ask yourself the following:

  • Is video mixing software an important addition to you?
  • Do you want 4 decks rather than 2 at your disposal?


If the answer to either or both of these questions is yes, then PCDJ Dex is a great full version DJ solution for you. If not, then keep the extra cash in your pocket and choose PCDJ Red Mobile as you music mixer of choice.
