Automatic weather announcements
Updating weather data
To update weather data, use scheduled event with the weather command, examples:
weather New York, US
weather Sydney, AU
(set this event to start every day at, for instance, 8 hours in the morning)

Automatic weather announcement using Text-to-Speech (to add TTS in the menu click Playlist->Extra->Add Text-To-Speech)
Today weather data
?temp - temperature (degrees Celsius)
?wind_speed - wind speed (meters per second)
?wind_name - wind description in English (e.g. "Light Breeze")
?humidity - humidity (percentage)

Weather data for tomorrow (the meaning for variables is the same as for today's weather)
?temp_tom
?wind_speed_tom
?wind_name_tom
?humidity_tom

Phrase example:
Temperature today is ?temp degrees Celsius wind speed is ?wind_speed metres per second ?wind_name humidity is ?humidity percent. Tomorrow ?temp_tom degrees Celcius ?wind_speed_tom metres per second ?wind_name_tom  humidity is ?humidity_tom percent.

If using built-in voices in Windows, better results are achieved if using Windows 8 or newer. Built-in voices in Windows 7 or earlier OS'es doesn't sound very good (unless you install a custom voice).

Congratulations for the work hard :)
These improvements are great!

Just to name a few that I love:
-Do not play two or more tracks consecutively
-Virtual audio sound cards included with the RadioBOSS package

a bug here installed version is the beta and it says that last version is 5.2.3

where is the virtual audio cable built in i didnt find maybe because i am having multiple virtual audio cables ? i like the idea and the startup options but what is the name of the builtin vac ?
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.3 [beta]
Post by: klinsoft on April 17, 2015, 02:02:38 AM
This is because beta versions are not included in the update check.
Program only checks for a release versions.

This is my guess.

pety, nelson c
Thanks! Please let me know of any suggestions or bugs. This release should be better than previous betas (it should have less bugs than usual :) ).

a bug here installed version is the beta and it says that last version is 5.2.3
The Check for Updates feature only checks stable releases, it doesn't work for betas.

where is the virtual audio cable built in i didnt find maybe because i am having multiple virtual audio cables ? i like the idea and the startup options but what is the name of the builtin vac ?
It's located in Settings->Playback, when you click the Change button, you'll see a "Virtual audio cable" button which allows adding and removing virtual sound cards.

Allow me to begin by thanking your for this superb update. Here are my initial comments

Quote
- A setting added to change highlight color for the playlist

Is there a way to change the color of the track that is playing as well? Currently the text of the track just gets bold. Is there no other way of increasing its prominence on the playlist? It would be nice if one could more easily identify/locate the track on the playlist that is playing at a given moment.

Quote
- Drag-n-drop tracks between the playlist tabs and the cart wall

There could be a bug here. Can move tracks from cart wall to playlist tab but not vice versa.

Quote
- Take into account the "Last played" tag

Awesome! Looking forward to testing this the next time I run a schedule. Hopefully this means when I'm creating a new playlist, Playlist Generator Pro will take into account when a track was last played so that if a song was scheduled in a previous playlist (and it played), then that song will not be included in the new playlist being generated because the no-repeat rules can now be respected across playlists (assuming there was a no-repeat rule in place).

It's planned, yes. I think it'll be included in one of this beta version updates.

You should start dragging a track by its icon, this way it'll allow to drag it outside the playlist.

Yes, this is how it's supposed to work. The Last Played tag works only for track no-repeat - for instance, it won't work for the "Do not repeat artist" rule.

I'm looking forward to testing this one, especially as it contains some functionality that I may have suggested, so well done Dmitry for listening to you usrs (so many companies don't even if they say they do!).

I was wondering about scheduling rule improvements, but I haven't finalised my thoughts yet (it's around those times when you want something to "not run")

What driver you're using for MIC (DirectSound, WASAPI, ASIO)?

Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.3 [beta]
Post by: nelson c on April 17, 2015, 09:36:47 PM
Here some problems I found:
-There is no preset for compressor (let alone one that acts as a limiter on the microphone)
-Sidechain compressor for microphones:
It's like microphone turns off every "X" seconds and is activated when I start to speak. but at the moment that becomes active, the first word is heard cut (in the beginning). (use WASAPI with the given buffer)
-The Downland command disappeared from the programmer
-Option "Set default" in the programmer does not do anything
-Sigue Editor: adjust the volume of each track does not work on pre-listening
-When are going to install a virtual card, if not is granted administrator permissions or when not accepted the certificate as a hardware manufacturer (I do not remember well which of the two), RB hangs.
-TrackTool: using next, Prev track, sometimes the program is minimized
-TrackTool: Problem with the zoom (see image atached)

Questions:
now can you do downloads of files that need username and password? you explain as?


Suggestions:
-Have as many items in the playlist popup menu, is very uncomfortable. I think that it was good as it was before.
-The "Stop" command on the menu popup (to so easy access) believe that it may cause errors. (insert a stop counselling)
-As well as be added the date field when he joined the library (for songs), I would like to a field with the date from the first time it is played
-In the PopUp menu the option "Remove points follows Editor" is disabled in songs that also produced no points. wouldn't it better to hide this option, rather than disable it when we have a song that it doesn't mix points marked? This aims to end that said before: a menu PopUp more orderly with fewer options at a glance. (turns out to be much more rapid access to a function, and more eye-pleasing)


This is implemented soon:
Show statistics when is encoded in another pc (with RadioCaster)
send and receive files from the API

Thanks for your help

This feature is implemented using the text-to-speech engine. The first post updated about how to set this up.

-There is no preset for compressor (let alone one that acts as a limiter on the microphone)
The presets are located at the bottom - see the picture attached.

-Sidechain compressor for microphones:
It's like microphone turns off every "X" seconds and is activated when I start to speak. but at the moment that becomes active, the first word is heard cut (in the beginning). (use WASAPI with the given buffer)
You need to have microphone on all the time when this feature is used. Does it always cut the first word?

-The Downland command disappeared from the programmer
As I recall, it wasn't removed from anywhere... Can you please give more details?

-Option "Set default" in the programmer does not do anything
It saves current option set as default option set. The next time you create a new event, it'll have those options.

-Sigue Editor: adjust the volume of each track does not work on pre-listening
-When are going to install a virtual card, if not is granted administrator permissions or when not accepted the certificate as a hardware manufacturer (I do not remember well which of the two), RB hangs.
Thank you very much for reporting those bugs!

-TrackTool: using next, Prev track, sometimes the program is minimized
To clarify, is it minimized, or closed completely? When you use those buttons, it closes the Track Tool and then opens another one with the new track.

-TrackTool: Problem with the zoom (see image atached)
What's wrong there? It allows zooming in wide range - it's by design. Or the problem is somewhere else?

Questions:

You can include username and password in the URL, e.g.:
http://username:password@www.example.com

Yes, you're right. In the next update something will be done about it.

-As well as be added the date field when he joined the library (for songs), I would like to a field with the date from the first time it is played
There was another similar request recently, I think RadioBOSS will keep a history of when a track was played (last 10 entries, I think). What is the "First time played" needed for?

This is implemented soon:
Show statistics when is encoded in another pc (with RadioCaster)
send and receive files from the API
Those features are in the queue to be added. API commands for file transfer should be added in RB 5.3.x or in one of this beta version updates.
Title: RadioBOSS 5.3 [beta] - Freeze2
Post by: pety on April 18, 2015, 07:35:35 AM
Dmitriy

I made a PC only for RadioBOSS (Windows XP SP2).
I use 2 sound cards. That mean that I use DirectSound driver. Anytime I make settings in FX or in Playback or Input RadioBOSS freeze and sound is looping as long as RB is freezed.

First time I saw that RB freeze on windows 7.

By the way! I do need Windows Mixer for MIC anymore.
Title: RadioBOSS 5.3 [beta] - Freeze3
Post by: pety on April 18, 2015, 07:47:12 AM
RadioBOSS freezed two times playing LineIN.
By the way! When I say "RB Freeze" that means that a period between 3-6 seconds and sound is lopoing. And RB continue playing normal after freeze period...
Title: RadioBOSS 5.3 [beta] - Freeze4
Post by: pety on April 18, 2015, 07:51:27 AM
The same annoying freeze when set a scheduler event.
In fact RB freeze almost anytime I make any settings...

There is nothing in the combobox from here.

The microphone is always on, only to notice that RadioBOSS sets it to "mute". (always being the button mic on. I guess to eliminate background noise) but is activated automatically when I start talking. in that moment always cut the first word (is enabled half a second later when he began talking)
Quote
-The Downland command disappeared from the programmer

The command does not appear in the list of commands from the controller (I do not mean the Wizard).
Maybe if the command downloand type works as before. (I did not try that)

This minimized. in a moment that I was testing this feature, the window of TrackTool is hidden and then not be showed more (left back of the RadioBOSS main window), and I had to maximize it.

To learn from the date it is playing a song. what you have in mind is really very useful. but I think that the ideal solution would be to see in that date be reproduced every time that came to the air (though in some way, perhaps already can with the report generator). but I understand that this is very complex or impossible mode is handled now (saving these data on each track). Maybe would be possible, if a database engine is deployed at some point.

I think the same as you.
For users in another language, this is useless.

Not achieve well understand as you pass values to variables.

I think what we need most is the following boxes:
-Read a text file (which can be of a meteorological station) or obtain data from any service like Yahoo weather.
Then with that select an audio depending on the data file, for example
Temp_25.MP3

In addition to this, I would like to issue daily rain (whenever it is greater than 0.0mm, if not say nothing)

If it saves each time a track was played, eventually it'll be a lot of information. Database engine is planned though, so I think it'll be possible in the future.

Current Track not Highlighted
It's OK on the screenshot (the current track is bold). Or did you mean highlight the track under mouse cursor? If so, check in the setting what color is set for highlight.

Hello, could give more information for:
- Remote Control API: insert after the scheduled events command
User manual is not updated yet... Use the &pos=-3 parameter to insert the track after scheduled tracks.

That's odd. Do you mean it also freezes when you add/edit a scheduled event?

Yes.

Oh, so weather announcements are useless for non-english speakers :( I was hoping it would be done the same way as time so we could make our own files in our language.
It will be possible as well. The problem here is that phrases will be simpler that using text-to-speech engine. If you have any example set of files for temperature, can you send it to us (support@djsoft.net) - I'll see what can be done about it.

There is nothing in the combobox from here.
It looks like the installed didn't copy the files as you updated your existing install... If you need, I can send you those presets, there are only two.

The microphone is always on, only to notice that RadioBOSS sets it to "mute". (always being the button mic on. I guess to eliminate background noise) but is activated automatically when I start talking. in that moment always cut the first word (is enabled half a second later when he began talking)
OK, will be fixed in the next update.

The command does not appear in the list of commands from the controller (I do not mean the Wizard).
Maybe if the command downloand type works as before. (I did not try that)
I'm not sure why it was removed. Will be back in the next update :)

This minimized. in a moment that I was testing this feature, the window of TrackTool is hidden and then not be showed more (left back of the RadioBOSS main window), and I had to maximize it.

database engine ? Soft will be involved with multi-gygabyte installs? It`s the only one that  not use these types of HUGE softwares for "shitting" the main soft. Don`t tell me it will be the Microsoft SQL installs or something like that ...
Please keep the soft simple and powerfull without external shit softs to be installed so it can work. I think it`s unnecessarily
Give some information on this ...

I have locutions of temperature, but in Spanish.
If it's let me know and sent it by mail. (the nomenclature of the files is the same)

It looks like the installed didn't copy the files as you updated your existing install... If you need, I can send you those presets, there are only two.
It is not necessary, it will wait for the next update. :)

This minimized. in a moment that I was testing this feature, the window of TrackTool is hidden and then not be showed more (left back of the RadioBOSS main window), and I had to maximize it.
Can you please make a video of this bug?
Ok, I'll do it soon

I have the following idea that can be very practical.
To move songs from one list to another instead of adding this option the PopUp menu is could drag flap tracks to the playlist (see image)

database engine ? Soft will be involved with multi-gygabyte installs? It`s the only one that  not use these types of HUGE softwares for "shitting" the main soft. Don`t tell me it will be the Microsoft SQL installs or something like that ...
Please keep the soft simple and powerfull without external shit softs to be installed so it can work. I think it`s unnecessarily
Give some information on this ...
The database engine will be a separate download for those who need it. Of course there's no intention to include it in the distribution.

I have locutions of temperature, but in Spanish.
If it's let me know and sent it by mail. (the nomenclature of the files is the same)
Spanish should do - please send them.

It's possible already: drag a track by its icon on another playlist tab.

Some time ago I thought like you.
Then when I learned to use SQL and query, I realized the amount of information that can be stored and of course then do very complex queries, as for example the date of every time that a song is played. Use alternative methods to save this information makes things very complicated.
Anyway this great idea to choose whether to work or not with SQL. the person that needs something "easy" you can do it well as requiring SQL you can use it.

remember what the automated sweeper in music , that's what's missing , sweeper amid cansiones , and is automatic for not having to always precionandolos that we want.
It is a very important obsion to the middle of songs, the program remember my frequency or station.

because the function that exists now requires me to be present to put pisadores.

Unfortunately when I add an event from playlist (INPUT 2) to play it at specific time RadioBOSS loads the playlist with INPUT 2, but it playes it from INPUT 1 (LineIN1).

Current Track not Highlighted
It's OK on the screenshot (the current track is bold). Or did you mean highlight the track under mouse cursor? If so, check in the setting what color is set for highlight.
Dmitriy
In all RB version the track wich is playing is bolded and highlighted too.
In current beta version track is not highlighted when track is playing. That produce a lot of confusion.

  • if you were selecting multiple tracks to do something with them, the selection was reset when new track started
  • when you right-click on the playlist item to e.g. call a Track Tool or do anything else, if a new track was started while the menu was visible, the operation was performed on started track (not the one you right-clicked on)
Is possible to make font larger? Becouse even it is bold it is difficult to observe it. So, bold and larger when track is playing? Is that possible? It will be great.

Maybe it only happens to me but I would rendorelo public to you to understand if and 'a program bug or just my problem.

Briefly, just make small changes to the playlist during running and everything is cleared suddenly, it happened to me two times, creating hardships the program of the Radio

I also saw that next to each command on Track Tools window is closed and reopened with the next song, very slow operation makes it difficult to jump, two song to go to change the third. It would be better to be able to scroll through the songs without closing the window Track tool at each step of the song.

I confirm during a playlist running on the scheduler, the time signal is added, after the execution of the time signal, the playlist is empty, and this' success now as I write, this forces me to reinstall the previous version.

Yes, this is how it works now. If you need to jump from first track to 3rd, it will be easier to edit first track, click OK and then call Track Tool for the third track (from the playlist). The next/prev buttons are suitable for sequential edits.

Do you mean that you need to activate and deactivate the microphone automatically when you speak? If so, this is already possible with the new sidechain option.

RadioBOSS settings:
 - Playback - Monitor soundcard (ONLY)
 - Input 1

Following this exact example I was unable to get the TTS engine to report this data.  Its simply reading the percent and variable names rather than giving me any values.  Perhaps I just do not have proper direction on implementation?  Is there a way to validate that the data is being properly retrieved?

Hello Dmitry.

About Sigue Editor:
The last beta, remains a problem with set the volume in the pre-listening.
Track number "1" works to level set perfectly.
Instead two track is not affected by the volume in the pre-listening, unless you change the volume level while already started ringing that track in the pre-listening.

Monitor works in operator room. When MIC is ON Monitor must be stoped.
Exactly the same principle is respected in the other versions and works very very nice.
So right now beta version doesn't function right. Monitor must stop when MIC is ON. Otherwise MIC will get the sound from two sources (Operator voice and Monitor Speakers) and the result is an annoying feedback. There is a principle here wich must be respected in a radio station.

If user wants NOT to hear the MIC on the monitor , then check the box and everything is OK. If he wants to hear what he speaks "quitely on the speakers" , then NOT check it.
As i realize right , Pety wants NOT to hear only the Microphone in the Monitor output? but the Music to go on , right ?

This is the situation:
 - In Live room there is Moderator (wich operates RadioBOSS, Mixer etc., etc.);
 - In the same room there are co-hosts;
 - There are Monitor Speakers in the room;
 - When Host and co-Hosts go in Live, then Monitors should be cuted when MIC is on. Becouse Microfons will capture the voices and Monitors too. That means an annoying echo (feedback).

Me too think that there must be an option for disabling (muting) the monitor when talking on the MIc.

NO!
This is not the subject.
Monitor must cut off ANY sound when MIC is ON as all other RadioBOSS's versions.
OK, I think it will work this way. But as I recall - none of the previous RadioBOSS versions worked this way.

There is an issue in 5.2.9.1 beta. Even today RB freeze and looping sound for few second (4-7 sec) when "manipulate" it. When navigate to another tab or LineIN is played or some settings. I looked to find any bug report but there is nothing.
Please open task manager and see CPU load - maybe it's high for RadioBOSS (more than 25%) or some other software eats CPU. Also check Settings->General->Priority, must be set to High.

PC (Win XP) - 3 sound cards (1 onboard, 1 on PCI and 1 on USB - a small Logilink).
 - Monitor and PFL seted;
 - Mic, Line 1 + 2 seted => all functionals.

So, there is possible to rebroadcast from two different sources (e.g. CNN and BBC).
Host and co-hosts can use MIC input (with a mixer through a sound card mic input).
All music, jingles, ads, sweepers etc., etc is played from RadioBOSS PLaylist.

Checked Record Voice track and works well. Except "Normalize" function wich doesnt work well.

If there is no hardware mixer, with VoiceMeeter Banana (needs administrator permission and restart PC) can use 3 USB Mics if PC has three USB available ports.

When using sidechain option, you should leave MIC on, and it will work automatically. Or do you need to quickly toggle the sidechain option itself?

in these days of use of your new software Beta, I have not encountered any particular bug, at least for the type of use that gets in my radio. Since you are in the development stage you wonder whether it is possible to add or change This  functionality '.
 -Be possible to move the schedule even with the filter inserted,
 - Be able to copy and paste into Play Generator Pro, the categories from one preset to another, this would    simplify the work given that many categories are the same, would remain with the same name and you could save in another PRESET in case of cancellation of a no longer used. I ask you,
- finally, the chance 'to automatically calculate before the airing playlist, start and end, especially in the vocal interventions short (less than 1 minute).
-  This does not happen now, or exclude (insert option in the setting) the possibility to exclude from the default mix interventions shorter than a certain time (eg 1 minute). I hope I explained myself. Thank's

Moving a track when a filter applied makes little sense, as it doesn't "know" where the track should really be after the filter is cancelled.

Can you please give more information on this? If you need it to automatically detect the intro/outro portions, I don't think it's really possible as it requires a deep analysis of the signal.

No I do not mean this in my radio programs are small inserts spoken between songs and the other. These interventions are updated periodically even if the file name remains the same, before the airing of the program playlist. These interventions very short, are often cut or rather fade out before the end, to solve problem I believe you can create an option that prevents traces fade for more 'short of a time that the user can' define. I hope I was understood.

Do not skip but as I explained to you is a very useful setting, which prevents fading in / out for more track 'court for some time eg 1 minute, I noticed, in fact, like that in the very short interventions voice them during the play selling mixed before the end, if you haven 'put this in the setting of the program?

Yes, but moving tracks in the list when the filter is applied is not possible (say, you move an event to a 3rd position, then you cancel the filter, and there's another event which also supposed to be at 3rd position... this is ambiguous). So I'm not sure it will ever be possible.

There's an option "Do not crossfade short tracks" in Settings->Fading - I suppose it's what you need?

- Fade out didn't work before "stop" command in the playlist
This seems better but not completely resolved.

If a track has a "Red line" at the end (I think it's the automatic mix line based on the crossfade setting) and a STOP command is added after this track, it will stop dead at the red Line.
If you use track Tool to set a mix point, that seems to work, and I noticed the auto line seems to disappear afterwards too, so it's a bit odd.

Dmitry a situation for which the new feature "Skip 2 or more tracks file type option" is useless.

We downloaded programs ready to issue that are divided into blocks, between those blocks inserted promotional radio station.

The format the playlist is as follows:

-Block 1 of the program
-Institutional jingle radio station
-Block 2 of the program
-Institutional jingle radio station
-Block 3 of the program
...

These programs are downloaded automatically from the internet.
Sometimes for reasons as a cut of internet, files are not downloadable then reproduces the following:

-file can not be played(block 1)
-Institutional jingle radio station
-file can not be played(block 2)
-Institutional jingle radio station
-file can not be played(block 3)
-Institutional jingle radio station
...

Then the listener only listening several institutional one after the other

Property not repeat tracks of the same type I thought that would be great to avoid that, but it does not work, because between each institutional there are files which can not be played (please see the attachment)

I created a schedule for when the ads come out of the break, playing a Jingle - Break Out, but it conflicts with jingle - Music Pass, which is already on schedule.

I also tested with Commercial, and is the same.

I used setvol command for LineIN2 llike: setvol 130
That's becouse LineIn2 didn't have volume amplifier.
After LineIN2 I used command setvol 100 to come back at default volume level.

But since those commands sound was corupted.
I reinstalled RB and every thing is right now.

Monitor OFF when MIC ON.
In Windows XP when I use this setting the sound become corupted.
It started when I used sotvol command.
The sound is like sea waves, fluctuant.
I made a lot of settings, but no fix. Only reinstalling RadioBOSS...
Can you please specify what sound becomes corrupted: main output, monitor or microphone? Also I think more info on the setup needed: sound cards, microphone, when the "setvol" command was used.
I used setvol command for LineIN2 llike: setvol 130
That's becouse LineIn2 didn't have volume amplifier.
After LineIN2 I used command setvol 100 to come back at default volume level.

But since those commands sound was corupted.
I reinstalled RB and every thing is right now.

I used right settings for both lineIn's. MIC and Monitor, plus PFL. All worked great, becouse i intensive tested.

I used setvol 130 for URL. I remembered. So, before URL I iused command setvol 130 and after setvol 100.
Sory, now I replayed in my mind exactly what I did...

I used setvol command for LineIN2 llike: setvol 130
setvol 130 will do nothing, as the volume will be capped to 100. So you can remove those commands (setvol 130/setvol 100).

Hello Dmitry.
The new feature, "Open Tab to drag a song that Tab Ensim" is very useful.
Would be very useful to also work with files from the Windows Explorer. (See screenshot)

Hi.
Follow the screen.
In red, the files "Jingle" play in sequence.
Note on the other screen , the feature is enabled.

Best regards.


Absolutely certain that the files were identified.
Even I tried other names like "songs - fast jingle," but did not recognize and played " jingle " in consecutively.
I created a schedule for when the ads come out of the break, playing a Jingle - Break Out, but it conflicts with jingle - Music Pass, which is already on schedule.
Inventor of the jumps the file, it plays two consecutive jingles .
I also tested with Commercial, and is the same.
Can you please make a screenshot of RadioBOSS's main window when it skipped the tracks?

Thanks. I think that's because you use the Track List feature (not directly jingles in the playlist). Will be fixed in the next update.

Please try creating a folder with files for which it doesn't read the metadata and try running the makelibrary command on it.
I'll check the files you've sent. But IIRC this problem was solved already in the past...

If it is a problem already reported before, but still it remains.
I think that it does not mention that the computer that generates the xml file does not contain music locally (read the songs on another pc with a shared Windows folder).
I just try the command with some songs that had this problem, but this time locally and use the folder instead of playlist and the file XML was created with the metadata of these tracks.

This is the command I use (R is a network drive):
Code: [Select]
makelibrary Buena.xml|"R:\Listas De Reproduccion\Varios\Buena.m3u8"

Actually it doesn't read tags from the old library, it re-reads tags for all added tracks. It also doesn't read the tag information contained in the playlist. This is to ensure that the database contains the most recent tag information.

The metadata could be empty if it failed to read a tag for a file for some reason (e.g. other program opened the file in exclusive mode, preventing RadioBOSS to open it). In this case, it parses the file name to extract artist/title information. You can try experimenting again using the network folder and playlist, to see if it fails to read metadata for some tracks.

Today the database I had the same problem (every night turns to generate).
I think it is because that at the same time in that pc is running a preset the PLG Pro which also uses the same playback list.

Everything works fine, except that today Monday yet are still playing those jingles.
is this the correct behavior? If so, is there any way to accomplish this without using an event for each reproduction which is needed?
Here attached a screenshot of the settings of the event.

In this case you need to set the limit on how many times it will repeat. When you set the limit, it will calculate the "Last play", so it should be pretty easy. In your case, if event starts at 17:00, repeats every 25 minutes, and you want it to play to the end of the day, the number of repeats should be 17.

If you do not set the number of repeats, then it will repeat event until 17:00 the next day.

OK thanks, I have enabled the option: maximum time in the list (10 minutes)-> delete.
What happens if the event does not play 17 times because I retired from the list for example twice? would the event run twice more in the next day?

Another question:
That reproductions counter is reset to 0 the following week?

No, it will only "try" 17 times, and it doesn't matter if the event was actually played. When you enter the number of repeats, it calculates you the "last start".

That reproductions counter is reset to 0 the following week?
It resets on the event startup time - when it's supposed to start the first time.

Hi guys!
I would suggest the possibility of choosing the audio file format for the announcement time.
In the current format (hr_05.mp3 + m_56.mp3) some time voices do not match perfectly with the voice of minutes, sounding too artificial for the automatic time announcement.
Being only one file (hhmm_0556.mp3) will not have this problem because the phrase is made without necessary breaks. Much more natural.
It's just an idea, which I think can contribute to RadioBoos.

Best regards.

Technically it's no problem, but in this case you'll have to have 1440 voice files (24 * 60 - every minute of every hour) in the folder... I'm not sure if anyone is ready to create such a set.

Ok.
It was just a suggestion!
In Brazil, many software give us the two option because we use a lot this format "whole" because it sounds much better than this format "broken", is very false.
I think it worth all this work, to leave the radio with a great quality!
We make every effort to leave the station with the best plastic, the greater the credibility, we believe.
Either way, the RadioBoos is very good.

Yes I have.
I can send you if you want, but are in Portuguese.
Here the spoken time is 12PM and 12AM and not 24 hours, but the clocks use the 24h format.
We do not talk on the radio "fifteen and twenty-five" (15:25) to 15:25.
We speak in Brazil "three and twenty- five" (3:25pm) to 15:25 .
I will try to explain!

To 12:25am, there is 0025.mp3 file, saying midnight and twenty-five.
To 12:25pm, there is the file 1225.mp3, saying noon and twenty-five.

As for the other hours, we say the same speech, only changes the file name.

Example - 0125.mp3 and 1325.mp3
We say - "one and twenty-five".

So we recorded lines from 00:00 to 24:59, then the lines from 01:00 to 11:59, copied and renamed, and will file for the afternoon, from 13:00 to 23:59.
I do not know if I was clear.
But programs here, give us the option of using the format 12PM or 24 hours, it uses up 1259.mp3 0000.mp3 files.
Thus, no files recorded in 1440, only 780 - 0000.mp3 to 1259.mp3.
I do not know if I was clear.
I can not explain it in English!
Sorry.
But if you want, I can send the files.

Best regards.

Currently RadioBOSS can't generate exact duration lists. You can use the sweepers (in scheduler) to avoid song interruption.

This problem already I was going on since the first beta 5.3 (although oddly, I think that less frequently).
Hard disk where all the music was malfunctioning,(sometimes took great time to find a clue) so this problem in RadioBOSS think was by the disk.
It makes a few days change this drive by a new one and the problem continued, so we rule out that it is a hardware problem.
This hard drive is the only thing that has changed in the system.

I installed RB in Live.
First of all. Track emphasizing background doesn't work. No background color assign to playing track (even after OS restart).

Title: RadioBOSS 5.3 [beta] - PAUSE BUG
Post by: pety on May 28, 2015, 11:42:54 PM
I usually use a pause by 5555 seconds in version 5.2.3.0.
In Beta version the same amount of seconds give me only one second.
So, this is a serious bug.

WinXP SP3

UPDATE

I will use it in this week-end in LIVE to test it in real time in a hard radio environment.

There shouldn't be any book icons... Looks like a glitch. Do you use antivirus software? It could be the cause.

Some other icons have different color
The gray icon means the track was played, and blue one indicates unplayed track.

I usually use a pause by 5555 seconds in version 5.2.3.0.
In Beta version the same amount of seconds give me only one second.
So, this is a serious bug.
Just tried on the latest 5.3.0.1, and 5555 second timed pause is 92 minutes 35 seconds.

We do not perform extensive testing on Windows XP anymore... I've just tried it on Windows XP SP3 Pro, and all features work as intended. I've also tested other reports: currently playing track, playlist icons, timed pause - all works. I suppose it's something with your PC?

I installed RB 5.3.0.1 as Stable version in my Radio Station, becouse this is the only way to test it in real time in a real environment.

Now emphisizing do not use background from settings. I use avast antivirus (it is a must have for us).

Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.3 [beta]
Post by: pety on May 30, 2015, 06:41:01 AM
The same thing for name of the tracks and/or tag name wich start with "$" and "@" character.
So, now is easy for you to debug emphasizing background function.

Maybe there are some other characters wich affect emphasizing function, but we used only these three...

There are few problems:
 - When I highlight a track for updating track info (tags), if in my playlist become active the next track, in Track Information area appear the current track which is playing, not the highlighted one.

So, this is not intended behavior for highlighted track. Highlighted function must keep in Track information area its info, even if other track from the playlist become active.

After testing this, I suppose that's because you use the # and @ characters as file type identifiers. In this case it conflicts with the file type's own background color.

I think I solved it. I added "line.in" as identifier in file type section and I assigned to it crossfades. Until now it works well, but I still monitor it...

If a track belongs to one of the file types, and that file type has its own background color, then there will be no "playing track background" used to it (it will use the file type color).

The problem is not in Windows 7. It doesn't matter if # or $ is in track name. Emphasizing function works great. So, I think that there is a problem of code in RadioBOSS for windows xp.

Another issue with emphasizing functionn
When a FileType is assigned (Commercial e.g.) emphasizing function also doesn't work.
This is in windows 7.

Post by: pety on June 07, 2015, 06:14:38 AM
The problem with background of FT is that it is white by default.
So, in this case background emphasizing function is useless.

To work (emphasizing function) than File Type background color must be "none" by default, not white.

Or, for more user control, both (FT and Emphasizing) must have "none" by default background color. That let me choose the right combination.
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.3 [beta]

When you open the color dialog, it has to select a color, event if it's "none". Please wait for RadioBOSS 5.3 release - it will have this bug fixed.

It always worked like this... Even if the playlist is non-empty, but there's no track selected, pressing the Play button will fade out the current track and then will play nothing - stop. If you use the Play button (or equivalent feature like double-click, or a hot key) then you need to make sure that the track is selected. Maybe you're right, but I'm not sure 'fixing' it worth the effort... it's just not how it's supposed to be used...

Do you use DirectSound or ASIO? If the former, then the delay (playback buffer size + input buffer size, with the default settings it is 600ms) is unavoidable.

I use Direct Sound in WinXP. Each 600ms or 300 + 300 ?
[/quote]
You can check buffer sizes:
Playback: Settings->Playback->Devices, check the Main and Monitor sound card (if used) - the bigger number determines the latency.
Input: Settings->Input, click Advanced, see the DirectSound Input Prebuf (default is 0.09 sec, which is 90ms).

You can reduce the latency, but you can't get rid of it when using DirectSound. Either upgrade to Windows Vista or newer, or use ASIO (ASIO4ALL if your sound card doesn't have native ASIO support).

There are few problems:
 - When I highlight a track for updating track info (tags), if in my playlist become active the next track, in Track Information area appear the current track which is playing, not the highlighted one.

So, this is not intended behavior for highlighted track. Highlighted function must keep in Track information area its info, even if other track from the playlist become active.
Yes, you're correct, a new setting will be added to control it.
Dmitriy, I do not find the new setting to controll it. Can you guide me?

WoW!!! Thank you so much for the compressor. I asked for this awhile ago and so happy to see you added this along with the dsp plugins for MIC ON ONLY. This helps out my staff and I might be able to eliminate the symetrix. One thing my djs have been asking for is a section similar to the jingles but in a tabbed box where the file explore/search/fx/ section is for sound effects. This would work just like the jingles where we could assign a # and just click it for sound effect. would need to be able to assign at least 50. Anyways thank you for adding the compressor and dsp for the Mic. I seen somewhere we could assign a sound file for mic on? I cannot seem to find this. Was this just a dream I had or am I over looking this function?

Thank you

Dmitry
There is a problem with right order of the days in Scheduler Week days column.
In our country first day is Monday (Luni).
The OS is set right. Monday is the first day of the week.
In RadioBOSS SCheduler, in Week days column the first day of the week is Sunday (duminica).
This is a mistake. See the image.

Tested on other two PC's with Windows XP. LineIN doesn't manage well the sound. The words are cut, there is noise background, crackles and long delay. RadioBOSS BETA do not process well sound on LineIN.
Do you use DirectSound or ASIO? If the former, then the delay (playback buffer size + input buffer size, with the default settings it is 600ms) is unavoidable.

openweathermap.org isn't the most accurate site for the temperature. It's often off by few degrees, at least for my city. Would it be possible to have a choice of few weather servers in the future?

Also I've scheduled a weather update at hour+2 minutes and temperature announcements at hour+3 minutes and a few times RB played the "TMP0" file. Was it a problem with the weather server or am I doing something wrong?
Currently openweathermap is the only weather source which can be used in RadioBOSS. In the future we'll add new weather sources.
For the TMP0 file, what was the actual temperature?

So far I've noticed it happening on 22 and 28 degrees

This is already possible if you activate additional work zones (View->Work zones) - you can add Cart walls there and have all the effects on screen: http://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/cart_wall.htm

I seen somewhere we could assign a sound file for mic on? I cannot seem to find this. Was this just a dream I had or am I over looking this function?
I'm afraid there's no such feature exists :)

A new feature suggestion:
I would like to see something like "Reload events" in the Planner, or a command "Load events".

It would be very useful to manage a RadioBOSS installation from another pc, then when an event is modified from another pc, the main installation load changes automatically.


Change is useful for repetitive replacing ads by DTMF:

On a pc of management studies-based advertising, are the changes that you want to with ADSScheduler. then these are replicated on the pc of each transmitter plant (which replaces advertising with dtmf) for this use folders synchronized as for example Droxbox.
Every two hours (for example), RadioBOSS events read again and should there be a change "loaded the new list of events".

About the temperature again: it's not a bug with certain temperatures, it's the weather server. Sometimes it can't be reached for hours and all the values are set to 0. When I open the site in my browser the data is there (but the temperature is usually off by a few degrees) but RB plays the TMP0 file

No. No error messages. But also no "Weather data updated." message. Here are parts of a log from the other day:

No. No error messages. But also no "Weather data updated." message. Here are parts of a log from the other day:
I'd suggest you to update the weather in advance, e.g. 30 minutes before announcement. As there's no error or success message, it means that it still sits in the mid-update state, while weather announcement event is already starting.
This will be improved soon. Probably it will skip the weather announcement if there were no successful weather data updates for this day.

I suggest Accuweather as good weather site
In the future we'll add some sort of a plugin system to handle different weather sources. It depends on the city you're in, one web site could be better than another.

I'm sorry for that :) It looks like the weather update wasn't successful (it returned 0 Kelvins, and after converting that to Celsius, it bacame -273 degrees). This will be fixed in the next update - it will not play weather announcement if it doesn't have actual weather data.

It controls output volume for the main playlist, MIC, "overlay playback" schedules. If you have jingles, cart wall or anything set to Main sound card, then it will control theirs volume too.

Here some problems I found:
-There is no preset for compressor (let alone one that acts as a limiter on the microphone)
-Sidechain compressor for microphones:
It's like microphone turns off every "X" seconds and is activated when I start to speak. but at the moment that becomes active, the first word is heard cut (in the beginning).

I am having the same mic cutting on first word issue.   Is there any update or advice to correct this?

Do you use Push To Talk, or you press the MIC manually? I'd also suggest to use the WASAPI driver for microphone.
