From this panel you can control the volume (Vol + & Vol -), fade a song out (Fade Out), Hard Cancel, (Cancel Song) and switch off the Jukebox. On touch the “Off” button you will be prompted to confirm the “off” command, if you have accidently pressed the “Off” button, this affords you the opportunity to countermand it. (see below)

The Control Panel also allows you a shortcut to the “Autoplay” Manager” without having to go through the “Set-up” panel.

Coin mode & settings

  • Free Play – Paid Play mode: Allows you to change Jukebox to Free Play or Paid Play with one touch.
  • Autoswitch – program the Jukebox to switch from Free Pay to Paid Play and back again automatically. Can be programmed for different days of the week.

Enable DJ Station: ads an extra module to front screen. DJ Station is great for hosting Karaoke evenings or controlling the music played in your establishment by allowing you to select/de-select, change play position & sort by genres/categories/artist/titles etc in real time.

  • Clear Playlist when off: Jukebox will automatically clear all songs cued up before closing so the system starts fresh the following day.
  • Confirm Shutdown: Jukebox will ask you to confirm shutdown (in case someone has accidently hit the “off” button – allows you to cancel if you wish.
  • Maximum Songs on Freeplay: Allows you to limit the maximum number of songs which can be chosen & cued up to play. Also known as “Anti-Hog” feature ( eg:stops someone from cuing up 50 Slim Dusty songs!)

Autoplay Manager:

  • Sets automated play – as background music or as foreground (dance) when no-one is selecting songs.
  • Prior to setting time periods and music genre this setting must be ‘enabled’ at the top
  • To avoid restricting the songs that meet the criteria at any one time it is highly recommended that only one of either Year OR Genre OR Beats per Minute is selected at any one time – the relationship between each Group is ‘and’ therefore songs will only play if they are 1970 AND Country AND 70 bpm etc if these are ticked thereby reducing the total available increasing the likelihood of some tracks repeating.
  • Multiple time periods can be entered provided they do not overlap (a system cannot play two different styles simultaneously)
  • Style of music can be set, delay between tracks, and overall playback volume (100% volume means 100% of whatever the system is currently set at not what the system is capable of).
