I think it's a good idea. Just as this function is useless. Forget to say that filling sweets should not be mixed either. (Always at the end)
Some problems with Shuffle Playlist on ADS Scheduler:Yes, I think this feature will be redesigned.
-Doesn't work when using overlay player
-Mix the entire list (start and end blocks not is should mix)
The feature will be redesigned to allow shuffling ads only, while leaving all other items in place. In its current state, it merely enables the "Shuffle playlist" in the event, and RadioBOSS does the shuffling.
What for are hooks?Hook
is a small (3-6 seconds) part of a track, just enough to recognize it. Hooks are used in the Teaser
feature: Playlist->Add Teaser. It then creates a preview of songs that are coming up next, or selects the song you want to be in the teaser.
Here's the thread with more details on how it works and its purpose: https://www.djsoft.net/smf/index.php/topic,4815.msg23555.html#msg23555
RadioBOSS also features the AutoHook
thing, where it tries (with variable success
) to select the "most recognizable part of a song" automatically, making Teasers easier to use. AutoHook only works if it's enabled and only for tracks with no HookIn/HookOut points set.
