Playlist Generator Pro - priorities explained
Priority based track selection depends on Playcount, Date last played and Rating. For instance, tracks which were not played for a long time and tracks with high rating can be boosted in priority, therefore they will appear more often in the generated lists.

Each track has a base priority of 50. Priority is calculated internally based on rules defined. Priority value of 50 means the track has an even chance to be included in the playlist.

Priority values range from 0 to 100. 0 means the track has very low chance to be in the playlist, while 100 means the track's chance is 3-4 times higher compared to priority of 50.

Priority rules are defined in Category properties, Priority tab.

When I click teh speaker by the mp3 file or song in play list I get an error here is the error.

Error playing file (code 37:"No Description") Please Check Priestien Device Settings.

ON AIR now shows actual server connection state: I don't see the status all i see is Default On Air like before hmmm but i can change the grey speaker image that's interesting.

Love the idea of Prelisten and Delete icons in the playlist.  Would it be pushing it too far to have a Segue Editor icon?  Thanks.

There is no vertical navigation in Notepad.
I put a text for my Live Talk Show and I cannot navigate in it.

There are not alocated all keyboard shortcuts for RTF Editor:
CTRL+A etc., etc. I cannot save my text in my personal Folders.
This is not what I asked for...  :-X

I do not need a Note for track....

Other problems:

can not enter numbers in the Notepad. only works 0
font size and font either

an old bug but I never reported.
Moving the cue player:
Change the position of the cue player, then change song from the list, and
the form reappears a second position (in the first case of default)

Nice features! Especially for the PlGen pro. I will also test the encoding emprovement.

I have a question: I am looking for a command line tool to edit APEv2 tags.
I need to edit on a linux server the "rating" information of the pm3 files. Does anyone has an idea? Alternatively a windows command line tool could do the job if wine compatible.
Another option would be a RadioBoss (or TrackTool) command line option to modify taging :)

Editing tags is a bit buggy IMHO it won't save our edits. DSP effects disabled every time I use my mic and I have to enable them all over again kind of annoying and VST effects not working at all I tried a stereo effect by flux and not working.

This means that Prelisted device is not configured properly. Click Settings->Options, open Playback and click
'Change...' button for the Preview device.

It will be darken out if no encoder is connected to a server, and it will be lit up when there's at least one connection.

Maybe this will also be added. I think if we add Segue, then Track Tool icons also has to be added...

You need to configure sound card for Prelisten, otherwise it won't work (usually second sound card is used for Prelisten).
What about tag issue - can you please give more information?

You can bulk-edit tags in the Music Library - can you please specify why command line tool is preferred? I think we can build such a tool.
