Update!

I tested if user can modify the dimensions of WZ's if try to change them, when he is not permited to {Modify UI Layout}. He can't. So, now I think that can access WZ's, becouse he cannot changes them.

There is a problem.
Look how I see. UI settings means WZ's too.
When I do not permit user to [Modify UI Layout] I understand WZ's too.
Is it possible to solve this?


Becouse when User do not have permission to [Modify UI Layout] he still can change WZ's.

Thanks a lot.

Dmitry, select a local path for"- Search: Select folder as search track source" and generated the report attached.

- Statistic relays to collect stats from different servers
With it is possible to see statistics when not using radioboss as encoder? (I use another pc with RadioCaster)

By what I see not is added the "hour of playback" in the command geyplaylist. Is it possible that you add in this beta? I saw two users seeking the same thing not long ago in the Forum.

he search engine's "file browser tree" shows only the first match. I think that should continue looking for coincidences whenever is push enter.

DTMF tone generator: very useful. It may be convenient that tones play alone. Without mixing with the track previous or next as it happens now.

Additional work zone (separate window) : This is great.

Various artists website for replay protection. How does it work? It is a collaboration with the string with blanks. (example " and " or "and")

If not are you searching with space can find false collaborations in the name of the artist. for example "Andy Gibb"

Sweepers: gap killer is taken into account.
great that this has been implemented. I'm going to perform several tests these days.

Yes, a bit later, the documentation is being prepared.

Yes, I agree. If a user doesn't have the UI Layout permission, then changing work zone sizes (now it's possible to resize the new floating zone) and turning zones on and off shout be disabled.

This is a good addition, will be implemented soon,

It supposed to work without crossfades - looks like a bug. Thanks!

It will only run on the 3rd Sunday of September, because 1st of September doesn't match the week filter.

It searches with spaces, IIRC, it will be checked further for the case you've mentioned.

Partially possible - use the "Start built-in encoder" feature and specify the stats server you want to use as Relay.

Yes, there's another command added: "getplaylist2" - it includes some of the playlist columns and works faster than "getplaylist".

Looling forward to seeing what API commands have been added.

Love the fact that the ON AIR indicator dims now if it's not connected :)

And great that the issue of next/previous track not playing if current playing is deleted (To be tested).

Currently "mixdown" feature is nearly impossible to implement as all mixing and fading is done based on real time. We have plans on major audio engine update and after that, the mixdown feature will be added too.

The new API commands will be listed in the updated user manual (currently we're working on it). By the way, the ON AIR was always dimmed when no encoder was connected :)

Really?! I hadn't noticed this I have to be honest! Any changes for what happens with multiple streams?

How do we obtain the updated user manual when it's ready, will you post a download link?

Thanks!

Hi. I commented a few things from the new version.

It's really useful to classify the types of files in a folder, so you avoid having to sort track by track.

One thing I asked on other occasions in the Progrador ad is to include a folder in rotation within this. Ie in a capeta have several tracks ad and each time a different sound. This is useful when you have several different tracks of the same advertiser.
I thought that by grouping them in the new version by categories this is solved, but simpletente is not to repeat the same ad in the same category in the same block. That can be done in the future?

Otherwise I'm testing this new version. Seguire looking to see that such things go.

Thank you.

Suggestion

Hi Dmitry,

thanks for give us the possibility to test the improvements of the new beta.
I have had installed it few moments ago, and I like to make a suggestion about the Additional workspace are.

At first, the german translation of "Additional" is "Zus?tzlicher Arbeitsbereich". So far it isn't implemented. :)

So let's go to my suggesstion (see screenshot)

1 - The title bar of the additional area doesn't contains any text. Maybe "Additional workzone" (or "Zus?tzlicher Arbeitsbereich" in german) would be an idea.
2 - By minimizing the main window of RB the additional workspace minimizes, too. For computers with multiple displays this isn't useful. Maybe you should make it possible to add a separate entry to the Windows Taskbar, so that the main window can be minimized independently (like the music library).

Have a nice day
Basti

It is red if one or more encoders are connected, and it's dimmed when no connection present.

It will be included within one of the next updates.

This is not possible yet, but it's planned for the future. The Grouping feature is present only to organize adverts in the list for convenience - it doesn't affect ads placement in the final playlists.
