Playing features

AllPlay has been integrated through the firmware upgrade 3.0.15. This platform makes wireless and audio devices (phone, tablet, local server, or the cloud) work together, allowing to use two different music services (and control the volume) on different Gramofons at the same time, or the same song on a group of several Gramofons.

The latest firmware upgrade (3.1.9) implemented a new playing feature to skip tracks using the LED button.

This article explains how to use these features.

 

      1. Music sources
      2. Multi-streaming and grouping
      3. Skip tracks using the LED button

 

1. Music sources

Here we will explain how to use these features using AllPlay Jukebox as an example.

To be able to stream music to your Gramofon, you can use any of the music service apps listed here

AllPlay Jukebox app is available on iOS and Android, which is AllPlay dedicated app.

Once you are connected to the WiFi signal of the Gramofon (home WiFi cloned signal for Gramofons configured via WiFi, or Gramofon_XXXXX signal for Gramofons configured via cable) open the app, and you will see a list of music options appear. 

Note: AllPlay services can take up to 2 minutes to detect your Gramofon.

 

Music on this device

When selecting this option, you will access all the files containing songs on your device (smartphone or tablet). Click on one of them and the songs list will appear.

Then click on the song you wish to stream, and select the play option Now, Next, Last or Cancel.

 

Note: if the device gets disconnected, the music will stop playing.

Music on the network

If you have a DLNA server installed on your network (computer, video game console, etc.), when selecting this option, the name of your server will appear on-screen and you will be able to access the music files it contains clicking it.  

Then click on the song you wish to stream, and select the play option Now, Next, Last or Cancel.

Music services

When selecting a service, if you don't have the app installed on your device, you will be invited to install it. Once the app is installed, you will be able to stream the music of the selected music service from the AllPlay Jukebox app.

Important: you can use any of these music service apps independently from AllPlay Jukebox. AllPlay Jukebox only offers a view of all the music services compatible with Gramofon.

Click on the links below to get more info on the music services you can use on your Gramofon:

 

Note 1: As AllPlay does not work with other platforms than iOS and Android, the Gramofon only works with the music services offered using iOS and Android, regardless of the other platforms the individual music services support.

Note 2: The grouping and multi-stream features are not available for all music services.

If you have any question related to a music service feature/use, please contact the corresponding music service directly, clicking on the links listed above.

2. Multi-streaming and grouping features

Here we will explain how to use these features using AllPlay Jukebox as an example.

    • Multi-streaming

You can use different music options on different Gramofons at the same time, and control their volume independently. This is possible using the apps of the music services you want to use, or stream locally stored music on your device or on your network.

Compatibility of music options used simultaneously on several Gramofons:

 

Music on the device

Music on the network Music services

Music on the device

Yes Yes Yes

Music on the network

Yes Yes Yes

Music services

Yes Yes

Yes*

* As long as you use different music services: you can't stream two different songs from the same music service and device to two different Gramofons.

 

    • Grouping

If you own several Gramofons, you will also be able to group them (at least two units, and up to ten) to play the same song on all of them. As for the multi-streaming feature, the grouping feature is also available from some of the music services compatible with Gramofon.

To do so, make sure you are connected to the WiFi signal of the Gramofon (home WiFi cloned signal for Gramofons configured via WiFi, or Gramofon_XXXXX signal for Gramofons configured via cable).

When opening the app, the main screen appears. Tap the button "Group" of one of the Gramofons you wish to group.

The list of Gramofons will appear. Select the Gramofons you wish to group and tap "Done". You will then see the group you just created with the names of the Gramofons forming it.

3. Skip tracks using the LED button

Skipping tracks is available only using services using playlists, with available tracks. Indeed, you won't be able to skip to the next song if the track playing is the last of the list, or if you're listening to a radio.

With firmware version 3.0.15, you could use the LED button to pause/play music while streaming simply pressing the button once shortly. The LED color transition would then be: green (if you play Spotify) or light blue (if you play any other music) > purple/pink > green (if you play Spotify) or light blue (if you play any other music).

 

Now (with firmware version 3.1.9) you can also go to the next or previous track. To go to the next track, simply press the button twice shortly. The LED color transition would then be: green (if you play Spotify) or light blue (if you play any other music) > purple/pink > green (if you play Spotify) or light blue (if you play any other music).

The manipulation is a bit longer to go to the previous track. Indeed, you need to press the button twice, but the second press should be long (instead of the first one, short). You should maintain the button pressed until you see the LED go white. At this moment you'll be able to release the button and listen to the previous track played. The LED color transition would then be: green (if you play Spotify) or light blue (if you play any other music) > purple/pink > white > green (if you play Spotify) or light blue (if you play any other music).
