Digital 1 Audio, a long time designer and distributor of software products for professional DJ's and entertainers, announced a much anticipated release of PCDJ DEX 2.0, your leading MAC and Windows based DJ software for professional disc jockeys.

This major upgrade boasts many new features and performance upgrades, while undergoing a design overhaul to simplify the DJ's in-use live experience. The most notable additions to PCDJ DEX 2.0 are the new and much improved sound engine quality and the ability to mix music videos, with all the same control and versatility you typically have with mixing audio files.

"Client's and patrons have grown accustom to it, and DJ's today need to offer the complete audio-visual experience." says Digital 1 Audio's General Manager Ryan Sherr. "It's no longer as simple as just blending a couple tracks, it's about being creative with the full gamut of media we now have at our disposal. PCDJ DEX 2.0 is our solution, offering audio, video, and even karaoke mixing ability. Our task was to introduce all this great functionality while getting back to our roots in a sense. Over the years we've allowed ourselves to become too influenced by requests, trying to make DJ software for everyone, sometimes allowing us to lose sight of what attracted you to PCDJ in the first place over a decade ago. DJ's wanted an easier way than traditional DJ hardware, and we provided that. Sherr Continues "We've made it our goal with PCDJ DEX 2.0 to simplify use and navigation. I don't think we've had an easier to use DJ software release since PCDJ RED 5.2, and that's really saying a lot considering all the new features at the core of DEX 2.0. One item we really focused on was audio fidelity. Simply put, DEX 2.0 just sounds better. We're all really excited about the direction we're heading with our 2.0 software line."

PCDJ DEX 2.0 for MAC or Windows is our all-encompassing professional DJ software that's simple enough for the novice, but feature rich enough for any seasoned DJ. Look no further, PCDJ DEX 2.0 does it all - whether you're mixing audio, video, or even karaoke files DEX gives you full control over your media allowing you to do more in the mix than ever before. With our ultra-accurate automatic beat-mixing, your songs will always stay in sync, allowing you to focus on the other aspects of your mix. Since DEX 2 offers no latency playback; loops, hot cues, and all playback controls are as responsive as possible, whether you're using a keyboard and mouse or a DJ MIDI controller. So load up DEX 2, import you tunes, and cue up your imagination - DEX 2 is the total entertainment solution, accept no compromises!
