  • Amongst some bug fixing, we have added a few new features to CoverJock 2016. Below is a list of new features.

File Explorer Tab

New to CoverJock next to the Search Music tab is File Explorer. This is great addition for users to locate music directly from the file system.


You can right tap or click on a folder in the left list, from here you can; insert the whole folder of music to the live playlist, add the whole folder to a new or existing playlist, as well as add it to a dancer's music collection.


You can use the right tap or click on the file list as well, enabling you to multi-select files/folders and add them to a new or existing playlist or to a dancer's collection.

Manage Dancer's Music

Another great addition is the Manage Dancer's Music. This is where you can manage all the dancer's music in one place, see who has the most music or no music in their collection.


In the dancer's tab, tap or press the hamburger menu and select Manage Dancer's Music. This opens a list of dancers on the left with their music collection on the right. Above the dancers is a list of sort options; Dancer name (A-Z) or (Z-A), and Track Count (0-100) or (100-0). From here you can add, move, delete tracks just like you would from the dancer's profile.

Locked screen widgets

When CoverJock is locked, you will now see some pre-set information widgets. These include: a time widget, stat widget, drive usage widget and a data widget. They are useful to identify if a drive is running low on space, how many tracks the dancers have selected and so on.

New popup menus

On many of the screens in CoverJock you will see a modern touch you would find on smart phones today, these are called "hamburger menus" - this is simply 3 lines. By clicking on the menu it opens up loads of hidden functions. These can be found on dancers, playlists, broadcasts, soundfx, promos, options and the playlist editor.

Bit rate sound quality

Ensuring the sound quality that comes out of CoverJock is essential. We worked on adding an option to only allow high quality tracks to play. This was based on the bitrate of each track. The idea is the higher the bitrate, the better quality of the track is. This option is found in Options > Music > Music Quality.

Intelligent song selection

CoverJock now incorporates an intelligent song selection for the dancer’s music. One of the issues was a dancer dancing to an Country song followed by an Hip Hop track wouldn’t sound right, but the main point was the tempo of the tracks being as close to each other as possible.


CoverJock can group the list of music by genre, then does a flip sort on each group. For example is the dancer has Country and Hip Hop tracks, it would have the Country first then sort it from the lowest tempo to the highest. It then sorts the Hip Hop tracks from highest tempo downwards. This ensures the tempo of the track is as close to the next track as possible.

Playlist enhancements

There is new hidden feature for the playlists. If you double click or double tap on a selected playlist in the right hand panel, you now see an additional screen with a couple of smart options on.


The first is a slider to set how long each playlist will play, this means you can play for example 2 hours from one playlist then 1 hour from another and so on giving your music selection structure. This only comes into effect if the shuffle playlist IS NOT checked.


The second slider allows you to set how many tracks play from each selected playlist. This only comes into effect if the shuffle playlists IS checked. So for example if you have Playlist1, Playlist2 and Playlist3 selected you can play 4 songs from Playlist1, then 2 songs from Playlist2 then 1 song from Playlist3. This offers flexibility to play your music how YOU want.

Enhanced menu on live playlist

We have added new options on the right mouse click menu found on the live playlist. These include Edit Genre Groups in the Genre sub menu, Create New Playlist in the Add to Playlist and Create New Dancer in the Add to Dancer sub menu.
