Much like a jukebox, customers can purchase additional credits to make requests on the Rockbot system. There are 2 types of ways for a customer to make a request: Shuffle Picks or Song Picks.
DJ Users are given 2 free shuffle picks per day when they check into a participating Rockbot venue. (Note: 20 free shuffle picks are the most you can bank at a time.) Additional credits can be purchased and used towards shuffle picks.
There are 2 main ways to select a shuffle pick:
- A DJ User can select an ARTIST they would like to play and then the Rockbot algorithms will select a song from that artist.
- A DJ User can select a PLAYLIST they would like the Rockbot algorithms to select a song from.
A song pick is similar to selecting a song on a jukebox. DJ Users can search an album, artist, genre, or playlist and select a specific song of their choice to play.
If a DJ User makes a song pick or shuffle pick and then needs to leave the venue prior to hearing their selection, they must CHECK OUT of the location to be reimbursed for their credits. Upon checking out, all previously selected songs or shuffle picks will be removed from the queue.
Fellow DJ Users can vote on the songs in the queue for free. The votes and other activity on the system automatically influence the stream of music so that engaged customers will hear their favorited songs on every visit.
