Playlists are a useful way to organize your digital music... if you have only a few hundred songs. Once you have thousands of songs, it becomes a chore to modify playlists to suit changing tastes / moods. Also, playlists become completely impractical when you have to suit the musical tastes of various household members. JukeBx changes this. It builds playlists in the background that it creates based on how you, and up to nine other users, rate the song. This enables you to hear the songs you love regularly, and the ones you don't like as much less, while still giving you the variety that rebuilding playlists every day would give you. You can even set JukeBx to rate the songs for you by monitoring your playing habits! Up to ten programmable patterns can be set so everyone can hear music they like equally, or unequally if you set it that way! For example, you can set a pattern that will select 5 songs in a row that you like followed by one your partner likes. JukeBx can be set to use a database that is stored at a remote location and allow you to hear music the way you want it in any room with a networked computer. Multiple copies of JukeBx can use the same database when configured this way and JukeBx can buffer networked songs so once the list is built it can be inderpendant.

JukeBx supports most media files, including most video types, and songs can be imported from playlists or directories. JukeBx can also be used as a playlist generator if you like another player but dislike it's selection ability. JukeBx even includes a Media Filler mode for portable music players which will fill up a directory with a set amount of music.

In addition JukeBx supports offensive song filtering, minimum rating play mode, variable start and end time, ID3 data importing, selectable full screen video, cover / disc image viewing, file type filtering, customization of the user and pattern names, minimize to tray, database browsing, file play count, auto-play, 10 song back, 100 song anti-repeat, anti-artist repeat, and auto minimize. For the advanced / daring users, it is possible to modify some of the values that JukeBx uses to select songs and, for example, change the weightings of the song ratings.

Feature List

  • Virtually unlimited song indexing. (Approximately 4 billion songs maximum.)
  • The window is fully resizable and the program can be controlled via the taskbar, and even when minimised to the system tray. It can also be set to be on-top of all other windows.
  • JukeBx supports MP3, WMA, WAV, MIDI, ASF, MPG and WMV file types. Video files can be shown full screen.
  • Playlists are built as a song is playing, allowing you to see what is coming up. Songs can be removed or skipped.
  • Relevant images (JPG, GIF and BMP are supported) for each album are shown in the JukeBx window while the song is playing. These can be set for by copying images into each album folder.
  • A list of songs that are associated with the current song can also be shown. These can be based on either artist, song name, album or description. Clicking on any of these song names will make them play

  • Each song can be rated from 0-10 for up to ten users. Each user name can be personalised. Alternative, the "users" could be the same person, but with ratings for different moods/situations.
  • Lists can be made for a single user or, by using one of the customisable patterns, for up to ten people with different likes/dislikes.
  • Patterns allow you to generate lists for users fairly, or un-fairly. In addition. this function can be used for other applications. For example;
    • Alternating between two people
    • Make one in four songs be one your children like. (Or vice versa!)
    • Play a comedy song or short every ten songs.
    • Make a radio station and play an "oldie" every five songs and an advertisement every ten songs.
  • Patterns can be named for easy identification.

  • The last 100 songs are remembered to avoid playing repeats. (This feature can be disabled)
  • The artist of the last 20 songs are remembered to maximise song variety. (This feature can be disabled.)
  • Low rated songs can be set to not play via a "Minimum Rating" feature.
  • Partner/parent/friend/kid unfriendly songs can be avoided using the Offence control function. (The Offence Rating for each song must be individually set for this function to work.)
  • File types can be individually selected for playing and/or importing.
  • JukeBx can be set to automatically play when started.
  • The current generated list is saved when JukeBx exits and resumed when it is restarted. (This feature can be disabled.)
  • JukeBx can be set to pre-build lists when it is paused. The number of songs it prepares can also be changed.
  • A special network mode is provided so multiple copies of JukeBx can share a single database. This enables you to use any computer in the house to modify ratings and see the results reflected in the rest of the house. This mode makes a local copy of the database to increase access speed and to reduce conflicts.

  • Even the way that JukeBx sees ratings can be tweaked so it works just the way you want. By default songs rated as "2" are played twice as much as songs rated as "1", and songs rated as "3" are played twice as much as songs rated as "2" and so on. But this can be changed so, for example, have a constant difference of 2 (1, 3, 5 etc), or they can be scaled in-equally so songs that are rated less than 4 have a extremely low chance of playing (1, 2, 4, 8, 100, 200, etc.)
  • JukeBx can automatically import files from a selected directory or playlist. Recursive directory searching is supported.
  • Several database function are included, including ones to delete missing songs, restore all ratings to default, duplicate ratings between users and to export the database as a playlist.
  • New databases can be created or existing ones selected via this window.

JukeBx Media Filler

  • JukeBx can be used to fill external storage devices with songs selected the same way as the main program. This can also be used to fill portable players that do not require using special software. (Apple iPod players and older Sony players are examples of devices that will not work.)
  • While settings are initially derived from the base programs current configuration, many of the settings can be customised for just this function. This allows you to, for example, have videos enabled with the main program, but disabled for the filler.
  • Each file can have a number pre-fix to allow them to be played in the order they are selected.
  • Several fill sizes are supported, and JukeBx can automatically empty the device prior to filling.
