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!

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)
- fixed multi-touch bug
- minor bug fixes and optimizations
Ratings and Reviews
Audio splitter failed
So I have a iPad 6 generation to lighting to camera usb to powered usb hub with a scarlet 2i2 and a Ddj-sb3 when audio spitter is turned on sound cuts to main speaker and headphones other wise VERRY NICE APP SUPPORTS THE CONTROLLERS YOU LOVE! I will give it 5 * when audio splitter doesn’t crash the sound thank you for this BOMB APP!
Very good app
Long time user of PC DEX which is a great program, was glad to get this iPad app. I really like this app, easy to use. One problem that I have with it is that it doesn’t store cue points. That is a big issue with me since I use cue points in live services. In order for me to use this app, I have to set up all cue points all over again for each session. I will continue using the app hoping an update will fix this. I gave it 5 stars because I love the other functionality and ease of use. One other problem, when I search for a song, it finds the same song multiple times in the search results, even though the song is only stored in one location in iTunes.
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.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
