Good day experts,

I have a small hobby on the side that I have enjoyed for many years using SK Jukebox.
Here is a description from the publisher of Sk Jukebox on what it is:


"SK Jukebox is designed to be used in arcade cabinets, but there are many features that can help the program suit your needs. Key remapping, Full screen or Windowed, Customize Fonts & Colors, Hide or Show mouse cursor, Animate Album Browsing, Display Album Art."

The publisher is no longer supporting or even answering question about the software, and is even discontinuing development on it because it was just a fad of his. Needless to say I was bummed out because as a hobbyist, when I have birthday parties and other great events that require music , Sk Jukebox was the life of the party in that any body could be the DJ in selecting albums , mixing albums with specific songs on the playlist , and much more.

In my fifty years of living I have spent nearly 20,000 dollars on my own music , and have converted all of it to mp3's. There's no better feeling than to bring my Sk jukebox to a party and people just marvel at the genre's of music that I have the includes  Rock, Pop, R&B, Gospel, Rap, 50's, 60,s, 70's, 80's, 90's , and 21st century selections.  Every chance I get, I take advantage of the Time Life offerings of music from yesteryears.

Now I am in a quandary. I have successfully used Acronis backup to image my several 1 terrabyte of music to brand new drives, because as we all know , drives will eventually go bad.  Yes, I have an expensive hobby, but its worth it. My problem is I cant find any software out on the market that even comes close to the old SK jukebox.

I tried media monkey, but the interface was not intuitive or fun like SK Jukebox.

Please, please, please , if there are any hobbyist out there that know of the free or paid software that has touch screen capabilities ,that will allow even the party goers to choose the music based upon what I have available, you would have my lifelong gratitude.

I want something unique and fun , with an interface that is intuitive. Thank you in advance for the answers I anticipate receiving.

Regards,
Regis
