  • I'm a DJ, What Makes JukeANator So Special?
    In short, the navigation, selection, genre grouping and popularity listing features of the main user interface allow for quick addition of songs to the song queue. But, the real power of JukeANator Digital Jukebox for DJ use is in the Admin Screen, where the dynamic, multi-level priority song queue allows you to:

    1. Easily add/remove songs to/from the queue
    2. Load playlists of songs to the queue
    3. Save the contents of the queue a playlist
    4. Save all played songs, in the order with which they are played, as a playlist
    5. Randomize the contents of the playlist
    6. Move individual or groups of songs up or down in the song queue
    7. Move individual or groups of songs to the top or bottom of the song queue
    8. Interlace a group of selected songs (e.g. Movie soundclips) between regular length songs
    9. Increase/decrease the current song priority so that any new songs that are added to the song queue are added before all lower priority songs (to allow you to target placement of where songs should be in the queue)
    You also have a queued song count feature that gives you a total running time of all the songs that you have in the queue. The random play feature can also be used to pick songs or entire CDs at random, either from the whole jukebox or from just a particular genre. Back to top.
