Categories and Category Levels

See Also: DJ-Serv integrated scheduler

See Also: Creating a new category

Categories are used to perform logical ordering of your library audio items in the Dj-Serv Library, and the Dj-Serv Scheduler.

Example of a category names: 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s (if you want to categorise by decades)

Equally, you might want to categorise by mood, genre and so on...

Examples: Easy, Medium, Hard.

More Examples: Rock, Pop, Indie and so on.


Category levels are like sub-categories within the main category. You use them how you choose, but they always have a number,
not a name.

Example: You may have a category called 80s. Now obviously all your 80s songs will go in there.

But you may decide to be able to quickly differentiate between 80s songs that were massive hits, and those that only made the charts for a week or so.

In which case, put the massive hits in 80s, level 1 and the lesser hits in 80s level 2. All the 80s songs are still in the 80s category, but you know that the biggest tunes will be found in 80s level 1. 

Or, you can differentiate further, with the top 10 80s hits in 80s level 1, the top 20 hits in 80s level 2, the top 40 in 80s level 3 and 80s album tracks in 80s level 4. You decide.


Audio Items may be in many categories, (Eg both 80s and ROCK) but may only ever be in one category level.

You can quickly assign audio items en masse to a category by dragging and dropping the DJ-Scheduler window. Or, you can do them individually in the Audio Properties Editor.
