Dave, I modified your post to fix QUOTE tags.

It displays Gray box when there's no artwork present in the tags (or it can not read it). If you have tracks with artwork embedded but RB doesn't read it, please send those tracks to support@djsoft.net

When artwork present you can click on a box to see it in a full size.

Having the "current" schedule as bold may be OK.
OK then :) One of the next updates will mark current event with bold.

The new crossfading seem to work really well   like it
Very good :) Do you use the default threshold value (-14dB) or changed it to something else?

Love the new encoder inputs, its great and works perfect :)
Great :) Let me know if you have any suggestions regarding this feature.

Is also a status indicator and a volume indicator provided on the main window???
Now you have a little bit control about external signals?
Volume control/indicator is located under the playlist. Or did you mean something else?
About external signal control, I'm afraid I didn't understand this part...

I realised what it was supposed to do but is simply is not doing it!

Ok I will settle for this compromise - will try again when we beta V5  ;D

Currently, it is set to the defaults but it is likely to be changed - bit by bit - until I get it right. tracks that suddenly followed by tracks with no apparent intro can be tricky. I doubt that we will ever get a perfect setting but will keep tweaking.

currently listening to a load of 1950s "Rockin' Girls" which tend to have no fade or fade out and that is not working too well so I may drop the DB down to -18 to see if that improves things. if you are up and about tune in to hear it  ;)

Crossfade

Dmitry - can you provide some more info on the crossfading?

If I un-check the mix point (Secs) does it purely work on the db level ?

Yes I know, but what I mean functional commands that bad.
I get the feeling that they are a back issue (for example -2 which should make -1)
Ah, OK. Sorry I missed that. This will be fixed in the next update.
This error also there are other things that do not work in the API.
No command works eg:
http://localhost:9000/?pass=1234&command=next (shows "nothing to do")

There is also a very important mistake when inserting a hint: when you want to insert after the current song, is inserted into the previous track (so the longer you reproduced).

Error ADS Scheduler:
Tildes are deleted: eg select another file and see that the tildes of the previous trade are lost.

Another thing about API: It would be nice in the XML besides the current song and the show also follows the previous song?

I like pety, also need the function to select and copy, but I'm very happy with the new Interfas of ID3 editor.
Only the panel where he looks very empty, will you add new things there?, If not, maybe would be good to incorporate a description text for each tab.

Another thing I would improve is the disposition of size in ID3 editor, when the screen is bigger but size should be available to show more characters in the editor (see screenshot)

I really liked the idea of ​​having two inputs Line-in, but gives sensacnon the latter is limited to be an entry for the webcast.
Would be nice to selecting desired input which when inserted in the list and the scheduler

I would also like to see "Balance, Frequency, Rhythm, Tone and reverb effects" as a dsp, I think this program is to removed

From the microphone, is incorporated in RB 4.9 A unique panel dsp?, Besides this compressor was removed (I used it in the microphone and very useful), I would like to see both the microphone, to the main output.

I would also like to use makelibrary from api

despite these things that were removed from RB (I'd like to re-enter), I really like the new version, there are several very useful and practical things that have been implemented.
Thanks for your great work

Unchecking Mix point will disable mixing completely.
Turning "Trigger mix point" on and off controls if you want to mix based on time or on level.

http://localhost:9000/?pass=1234&command=next (shows "nothing to do")
There was an error in the examples, parameter actually called cmd, not command.
So it should be
http://localhost:9000/?pass=1234&cmd=next

Another thing about API: It would be nice in the XML besides the current song and the show also follows the previous song?
Maybe this will be added too.

I like pety, also need the function to select and copy, but I'm very happy with the new Interfas of ID3 editor.
Only the panel where he looks very empty, will you add new things there?, If not, maybe would be good to incorporate a description text for each tab.

Yes, it will be improved to use more screen space.

I really liked the idea of ​​having two inputs Line-in, but gives sensacnon the latter is limited to be an entry for the webcast.
Would be nice to selecting desired input which when inserted in the list and the scheduler
If you have device assigned for Line2.IN a new item in the Playlist menu will appear: Add Line2.IN.

I would also like to see "Balance, Frequency, Rhythm, Tone and reverb effects" as a dsp, I think this program is to removed
Yes, those are currently removed. Maybe will be returned, currently we'll collect feedback. Same for Compressor.

I would also like to use makelibrary from api
It is possible using the "cmd=" syntax.

moh001,
I don't know what to say... This is a beta version and it is the first release with lots of changes - you can see it in the first post.
It is not possible to immediately implement everything people ask for.

how come you lie  , that's really bad
Your request is in the queue and will be implemented in one of the future updates. I don't know why are you "disappointed" - you asked for a feature 4 days ago. How many companies in the world implement requests in 4 days or less? Share their names with us.

Unchecking Mix point will disable mixing completely.

My current settings are

Fade in 1.0
Trigger mix -30db
fade out 1.5

Just loaded a playlist so that I can have a listen before it plays out later today.

I have noticed something strange. Crossfading seem not to work with long silence at the end of a track or suddenly just cutting

Looking at the tracks with Track tool I can see that all the tracks have the same start and end point although none are "set"

If I manually set them - everything is ok ??

Not seen this before ?

Regards
Dave

POSSIBLY connected with the above there IS an issue with the music library

Crossfading is currenly working fine on the playout machine but NOT on the production machine and I have been scratching my head for the last hour about this.

then it clicked

The music playing on the playout machine is from an existing un-modified database

The playlist I am playing on the "production" PC - the one with crossfading problems - is from a database created some weeks ago but had tracks added to it today.

I decided the delete the database and re-create it.

Following the initial scan I noticed that not all field were being populated properly - see first image - and a lot had no albums, year etc.

Hitting edit/update tags fixed this  ???  so the initial scan is NOT reading the tags correctly and requires a second scan to complete it properly - see second image

After creating a new playlist from the new database crossfading seems to work ALTHOUGH it is still failing to cope with extremly quiet intros and outros unless I manually mark these which is not practical

Hi Dmitry.

Thank you for all your work on this new version. There is much to test out and learn.

I seem to have a small issue with the font on the play out screen. I prefer to have a fairly large font size, but when I choose it, the playlist text becomes very 'congested.' In effect, I think it is trying to fit 18 font into a 12 font line.

Screen shot attached.

Is there a way I can adjust this, or is this a bug?

Thank you for your help.

James

Done some more testing and have found the following

It definitely takes 2 scans to read files data correctly

I have also noticed that even after 2 scans what is appearing in the Music Library Applications does not match what mp3tag V2.54 is seeing

See the 2 images A & B that show significant differences in the "comment" field - crucial for plalist generation.

When i tried to re-write the tags in Music Library it wouldn't and came up with an error - see image C
