The main interface consists of four important elements that help you find, sort, categorize and play your music. Starting at the top left you'll find the active player, where you can see which track is currently playing and which track will be played next. The artist's biography is automatically displayed to the right of the active player.
To the bottom left are the Stream and Active Lists. The Stream list is composed of tracks found in one or more genres or personal playlists added to the Active List. The music mix is therefore very dynamic and fully customizable by adding or removing musical genres.
Use the stars to set your ranking for the track currently playing. By clicking the timer next to the progress bar, you can switch between elapsed and remaining time displays. The play button turns into a pause button while a song is playing. Click it again to resume playback.
The stream list shows you the current song queue, in chronological order. You can rearrange the songs by dragging them within the list, remove songs by dragging them to the trash bin to the bottom left, or play a song instantly or as the next track.
Use the shuffle button at the top of the Stream List to completely rearrange the selection.
The active list can contain genres and custom playlists. Songs from the lists you add to the active list will be automatically selected for the Stream, or current song queue.
The search can be used to browse through our entire music collection. To narrow down the search results, you're able to choose between searching for specific artists, song titles or for search queries that are found in the song's complete description.
Add tracks to your own playlists directly from the search or from the Genre selection menu. You can browse through, edit or remove your playlists, and add them to the Active List or Agenda
The Genres are divided into main genres and sub genres. You can browse through each genre's content, add a genre to the Active List for immediate inclusion in the Stream selection, play individual tracks in the selected genre or add them to your own playlists.
Choose a radio station from the list to play the online feed. The Stream list will be paused while the online radio station is playing and will resume playback once the radio is stopped.
Select a playlist or genre to play at a certain hour of the week. Using this, you can make a complete weekly planning for your music genres at any time. Use the globel On/Off switch to enable or disable the Agenda-functionality.
With the Agenda disabled, the Encore player will play tracks from the Active List.
Use the lock to disable all functionality while the music keeps playing. You will have to login using your username and password to unlock the player again.
