DJ DEX turns your iPad into veritable DJ software console that rivals features found in top professional DJ applications.

Get touchy with the intuitive interface or plug in a supported DJ controller for tactile hands-on control over features like BPM sync, interactive waveform displays, pitch/tempo control, scratching, seamless automatic looping, automix, and effects. DJ DEX also supports mono split output so you can easily monitor each deck in your headphones just like a traditional DJ setup.

DJ DEX is not a game – it was created using the same technology found in DEX 3 Pro for macOS. Whether you use DJ DEX as your go-to solution for DJing events or as backup you’ll have the features you need to create tantalizing mixes that keep ’em dancing. See for yourself and take it for a spin today!

Key Features:

+ 2 DJ DECKS and a Mixer
+ Hands-on manual mixing or hands-free automation
+ Pitch/Tempo Control
+ BPM Snap-To-Beat Mixing
+ Seamless quantized looping
+ Automatic Beat-Grid based BPM detection
+ High-Quality effects (Flanger, Echo, Cutoff filters, etc)
+ Interactive waveforms that allow you to scratch, pitch bend, reverse play, backspin, etc
+ Library browsing and search
+ 6 hot cues can be set per deck, with cue-play
+ Record your mixes
+ Free updates!

DJ Controller Support:

+ supports multichannel audio controllers
+ almost 100 controllers supported (from Pioneer, Numark, Denon, Hercules, American Audio, Reloop, Gemini, Akai, Vestax, etc). No configuration needed, but you do need the iPad Camera Kit connector or a Lightning to USB adapter to connect the controller to your iPad. You must use DJ Controllers that consume very little power (so that the iPad can power them) or have their own power adapter.

Optimize for performance:

+ Turn on “Flight Mode” when doing live mixes
+ If you need both speakers and headphones preview and you don't have a multi-channel audio interface or controller you can use a special inexpensive “splitter” that splits the headphones output so that the left channel will go to the speakers (master output) and right channel will go to the headphones (monitor)

The Real Just Jeff

Two stars for layout. This crashed in the middle of a practice performance which is unacceptable at any level. The purpose of having mixing software is to play non-stop music. Yeah it's only ten dollars I get that, but I won't bet getting anymore. Save your money.

Need improvement on searches, specifically artists, fix the crashes.
Maybe put an already played list or lessen the color of the song's font, but leave the option open to play again. Haven't seen that yet except for my Other PC software.

Bottom line; FAILED !

UPDATE March 04,2013

Have been waiting patiently for an update as tech support appears to be very interested in this program. Sorry to say the crashes continue and there have been no resolutions to an ongoing problem. Not much use from a disc jockeys perspective. Sorry told you I would bump up the stars but cant do it when there hasn't been any improvement. Time to put this app to rest.

Not there yet!


I have & have used almost all of the respectable DJing apps, and this ranks as average. While it has some very good points, the app is unfortunately brought down by a few bad ones.

The waveform grabbing is a great feature, but as soon as you let go, the song takes off playing even if the song was paused. Now this is great for scratch simulating, but not so much when you are trying to precisely set a cue point. And speaking of cue points...
The cue point creation & management is an absolutely dreadful system. Lastly, the pitch fader range is to wide, & the pitch bend is way to sensitive.

The bpm detection & sync are both top notch, so all the DJs who cannot beat mix manually are in luck.

I will keep checking back with it as it is updated, because I really think it can become one of the better apps. It is just not there yet.

Changing my review


I dug into the program and noticed that the ability to switch between playlists/artists/songs/albums etc. was at the bottom of the song selection list, so I'm deleting the original review and posting this instead.

I've used PCDJ products for years, so it was nice to have this as a backup to the real program. That said, I do have a few quibbles:

1. If you accidentally hit the main button while working in the program, it shuts down. Need to have an option that would prevent this, perhaps using the orientation lock switch.
2. Sliders aren't as responsive as I would hope - they tend to shift back and forth around the spot you want them to be.
3. An "auto-mix" button would be nice.
