Dmitry congratulations for this great job! :)

"Override mix with the previous track" works perfect, thank you very much!.

Here's a list of problems I was finding:
1-The preview does not work for streaming. (But if it works for the main output) The link to use is as follows http://musiconefm.com/Varios/Enlace (makes a redirect)
2-When the theme "Windows 10" is chosen the "interface theme" select "Windows". (I guess you should select Windows 10)
3-After changing the skin to "Windows", the remaining time and elapsed they are cut. (And also he does not have the power he had in RB 5.3, which I liked) See attached "Image 1"
4-Small aesthetic problem with the clock source. For some reason the font size is large and "Almost" is the text on the edge of the box clock. See image 2
5-Testing events appears this manually. A track this "tabbed" deeper into the playlist. Do not know if this is a mistake, maybe it is a new feature. See picture 3
6-Several problems with Sweapers in ADS scheduler. Tomorrow I will comment on this.

Thanks

Dmitry me some questions that arise. If then write this in the main post, you need not answer me.

-Now you can see the statistics RadioCaster in RB?
-I see improvements in downloading files:
 Now you can download files they need http authentication?
-As the new works DTMF "counter phase"
-Music Library: Check music tracks new check: long periods of silence


Now that the possibility of changing the color of the panels was added. It is very difficult to add the possibility of using two colors for each panel, or else a background image ?. For panels with two colors are great (see picture attached)

Thanks for reporting!

2-When the theme "Windows 10" is chosen the "interface theme" select "Windows". (I guess you should select Windows 10)
It does so only on Windows versions prior to Windows 7, otherwise it uses the standard Windows skin, only changing colors and fonts.

5-Testing events appears this manually. A track this "tabbed" deeper into the playlist. Do not know if this is a mistake, maybe it is a new feature. See picture 3
Yes, this was going to be a new feature (scheduled events grouping in the playlist) but it was decided to turn it off for now - it seems that it wasn't turned off completely :)

It should work if the site uses standard HTTP auth. If it doesn't work please send me a link to test.

Thank you for the new update. Was the mixdown feature included? Where you can mixdown the playlist into a single audio file. I had requested for it as a feature several weeks ago and you'd said you'd add it.

Several bugs in ADS Scheduler.
In a last test I appeared this error, generating events.
(Under the sweapers settings that perhaps has to do with this)
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]

On sweepers:
I am using a trial "find the best matching sweeper". and time is "5 minutes".
As you can see in the picture attached. 2 tennis insert which has a duration of almost 10 minutes.
In a list of the generated lists he had chosen the same song twice for filling. This should never happen.

"Use random sweeper" It also has the same problem.
I think there would be necessary to request an acceptance range to choose sweapers.
For example: Filter tracks lasting more than 3 seconds the needy and less than 2 seconds.

Of course to meet the time may be right to insert two sweeapers but should never be the same.


For testing I'm using a folder containing 3,000 songs, so this problem is ruled out due to lack of sweeper.

Thanks

It's now individual for each playlist, right-click on a playlist tab to see the option.

Thanks for reporting - looks like sweeper selection code is faulty.

As you can see in the picture attached. 2 tennis insert which has a duration of almost 10 minutes.
OK, I think the sweeper selection code needs to be reviewed. Thank you very much for the insights, please wait for the next update, sweeper selection should be improved there.

Hello. I have a couple of suggestions. Could there be a skip next song button or a next random song button? I have the playlist on random a lot and sometimes I don't want to hear what's coming up next and would like to skip it. Also, I would like to suggest more than 1 song in the "Coming up next" box.

The newest version has a couple issues that I see. The song times are completely gone under now playing and my "On Air" is cut off. - see attached

You can re-init the random sequence by performing any edit operation on the playlist, e.g. cut and paste back the track.

Yes, I also see the ON AIR is cut - will be fixed in the next version, thank you for reporting.

The sound level issue will be fixed in the next update - if level set below -30dB, it will kill the sound completely.

Sorry there is a problem of translation.
I meant to see the priority of each track from the API. The command API "playbackinfo" brings several track data such as the artist, title, etc. It would be interesting to also bring the priority of each track set.

On the other hand the other application is to modify the priority specified for each track, since some API command.
example:
Code: [Select]
http://IP:port?pass=1234&action=UpdatePriority&Value=5

Oh I also don't know if you addressed the plugins on music overlapping mic? In this version or not. VST's all crash and none will load at all I mean none.

The buttons will have text when you activate the Screen Reader mode (in RadioBOSS's View menu). You should deactivate this function.

It will use CPU while it reads track information for your playlist. This is done in the background and should not affect operation.

The plugins fix is in the development queue.

Regarding VSTs - some works fine with RadioBOSS, some are not, it depends on the plugins. At some point the VST bridge will be rewritten.

Every year the end of December, January and February go once a month to the radio.
(I am in another city)
Therefore radio remotely control it. (For the API mostly, but sometimes by teamviewer)
Therefore it would be very useful.

I am still using version 5.3 as Air. There will be some fairly stable to use version December 15?
I leave the radio on December 21 so I want to install 5.4 above, to ensure that there is no serious problem.

As it turned out, RadioBOSS's crossfading engine is not prepared for this kind of work - it operates with real time values, while during mixdown the time will become "compressed". This feature is planned for the future.

I do not know if this was reported:
RB plays an event from Line.IN followed by ID station.
The alignement is wrong?
Yes, this was going to be a new feature (scheduled tracks grouping) - it was turned off, but as I see not completely :) Will be fixed in the next update.

It had always been like this. In Shuffle mode it does not calculate start time.

It will be an update to this beta? :)
It should.

I leave the radio on December 21 so I want to install 5.4 above, to ensure that there is no serious problem.
The final release is planned for December 20. The stable enough version will be ready before that date.

- "Find the best matching sweepers" works great (even I realized that not always choose the same song, which is great, and is what earlier request)
I do not understand the operation of sweepers Insert random. Sometimes inserts a Sweeper and again two, but any duration.

i think the reason why the time is not showing is a video card issue when we test it on 3 diffrent computer with diffrent video card i notice it show good on the nivid video card better after update the drivers
EVGA GeForce was not playing fair it was up and down. Radeon video card was good as long as the card is over $120 we notice that most low end video card for desktop acted funny with RB as we Beta test 5.4

Dmitry. I thought it was fine, recently I found two problems with this  :(

Set a time of 15 minutes advertising block. I put several commercial distributed to several messages found in each block.
Then when I see the generated lists,the duration is no more than 10 minutes. and they have been used only two sweepers maximum.

This problem is strange.
In an advertising block Scheduler ADS always chose the same sweepers. (I mean for an advertising block sweeper was used the same forever.)
When I see the list of sweepers in RB, I see several of the same duration. (Attached image, In the images filling time is 5 minutes)
Or duration of sweepers is measured without cutting silence? (and thus is the only sweeper with the exact duration).
It really always use the same sweeper is very bad for the audience. (Every day at the same time the same song sound or sweeper)
So I thought in previous post establish an acceptable time difference parameter. So have many more sweepers available for each advertising block.

Anyway, it's working much better than the last beta :)

That's really odd. We test RadioBOSS on various configurations, form most cheapest computers and up to high-end servers. The issues sometimes occur when you use high DPI mode, some UI elements may become wrong sized or positioned. Can you please provide some screenshots when RadioBOSS didn't work correctly?

i stand corrected our tech guy here @ the station was testing Radioboss on old out dated computer that was in the storage closet lol the machine with high end outdated video work good but was respondng slow on xp and windows Me lol also windows vista was ok but choppy and slow responding but on our window 8 and 10 machine we did'nt have no issue with Radioboss running no error just the on air  image not there also the virtaul cable is working good one thing i do think need to be added but i will place that in the request section.we are using to twitter song post feature and it working also showing the song on the website is responding faster almost instant change when the song change. now that i think about is there away to start a sweeper at the start of a song or at the end on a song or voice over feature for psa or listeners station shoutout i don't think we seen how to use that we are new to this program we may need to finish reading the manual but get program

Hello. I have a couple of suggestions. Could there be a skip next song button or a next random song button? I have the playlist on random a lot and sometimes I don't want to hear what's coming up next and would like to skip it. Also, I would like to suggest more than 1 song in the "Coming up next" box.
You can re-init the random sequence by performing any edit operation on the playlist, e.g. cut and paste back the track.

The newest version has a couple issues that I see. The song times are completely gone under now playing and my "On Air" is cut off. - see attached
Yes, I also see the ON AIR is cut - will be fixed in the next version, thank you for reporting.


A random song button would be better than me cutting and pasting songs from playlists. That's not really a solution. The way I change to a new "next song" when in random play is by re-ordering the columns. Sometimes it works. A "shuffle" or "new random song" button would make it easier. I still would also like to see more than 1 song in the cue "coming up next". How about Next 3 songs?

Also, in the latest beta version, the song times are still completely gone under now playing and my "On Air" is still cut off. New thing, my clock in the top left corner is now cut off so I cant see the mins before the top of the hour. I really need these things. I went back to the 5.3.3.1 version until these things are working again.

Although not have permission to "Editing the playlist".
Users can drag files to the playlist from the file browser.
Thanks for reporting!

So I thought in previous post establish an acceptable time difference parameter. So have many more sweepers available for each advertising block.
Currently it allows 1 second tolerance when searching for sweeper. I'd suggest you to create another topic with this issue, and post all your setup and expected results there - it will be easier to work with.

if I set the mode to play only one song, the song is not removed from playlist. the option to remove the songs played is enabled. Works only when I play the songs throughout. My mistake, or a bug?
Do you refer to the "Queue mode" for playlist? If so, the tracks are removed after playback is completed (when track ends).

There is a bug in Event Manager.
From Scheduler Wizard is not selected as command or track/playlist the event I want.
In the movie clip you'll see better.

Confirmed. Will be fixed in the next update.

If you want to see what's going to play next, and also be able to change orfer, here's possible solution
- instead of shuffle, use menu command Playlist->Extra->Shuffle, it will shuffle tracks in the playlist, and as Shuffle mode will be off, tracks will play from top to bottom, and you'll be able to see what's up next (and change tracks when needed by dragging them
- if you want to re-shuffle the playlist from time to time, you can use the scheduler to do so: add event that starts the playlist and select "Shuffle playlist" option, also "Clear playlist" and "Do not delete tracks after playback" should be enabled too.

Also, in the latest beta version, the song times are still completely gone under now playing and my "On Air" is still cut off. New thing, my clock in the top left corner is now cut off so I cant see the mins before the top of the hour. I really need these things.

Yes, from your previous bug report we figured out that it happens because of high DPI settings you use. Will be fixed in the next update.

Hi Dmitry,

A long time since I did not update my wish list but it’s almost Christmas…
Do you plan to release a kind of beat matching feature like the “Automix” feature of VirtualDJ? I assume radios such as “I love 2 dance” radio (http://www.iloveradio.de/ilove2dance/) is using it. I think the beat matching mixing experience sounds really nice.

Will it be possible to set a playing duration of an inserted track or playlist. The idea beside this is to be able to play a 2 minutes content (either a single track or a playlist) for listeners that do not have Shoutcast adverts. At the end of the 2 minutes a sweeper will be played will ensure that listeners whit regular content and listeners with Shoutcast Ads will have a smooth transition at the end of the add break.

ADS Scheduler incorporates a feature that is very useful for this: the duration of the advertising block is established and the remaining time is filled with sweepers.

I'm just about to open a post with some ideas to improve this, some of the things that are important:
-It is necessary to choose different tracks is updated whenever ADS scheduler.
-if Great time to fill, Example 8 minutes. you should use several sweepers.

This mechanism is much more transparent than you raise and more tedious for the audience, since no track will be interrupted to return to the main transmission (although it is much simpler mechanism)

If you have ideas or comments about this I would love to hear it.

Automix Virtual DJ is not as good how are you mixing. (I love 2 dance)

I doubt something automated, you can create as good mixtures. Perhaps it is a tool Sigue Editor style but with capabilities such as managing Pich and stuff, and mixtures are set manually.

this can be done in radio boss but it alot of time and track editing you would have to set the cue mixing point of the song for temp or premit and to be honest you will have to make a play list to what your are requesting with the beat tempo and matching the mix point and everything to get the effect your requesting  can it be done yes!!!!!

To nelson & worldfamous704djs

   I am using the tracktool editor to place start, fadein, intro, outro, mix, fadeout and endcue points already. But there is no beat synchronisation and tempo adaptation. The segue editor can manually help but not for tempo modification.
The "Automix" feature gives amazing results it is worth trying it. It detects best position for mixing, adatps the tempo of the tracks, gets beats synchonised, does the mixing and smoothly get back to original track tempo. It's not like a human DJ but provides amazing results for an automated tool. With RB tracktool cue points to helps choose the mixing points it could even be better results.

Yes. The inserted event should last for 120 seconds from the start it is being played.
For Shoutcast Ads I need to play a sweeper to trigger the Ad break. Typically only listeners in USA, UK, France will hear a targated Ad break. Listeners from the rest of the world will hear the regular audio content. Shoutcast Ad Break last for exactly 120 seconds. I then need a clean way to get back to regular content for both groups of listeners. An easy way is to play the Ad trigger sweeper (2 seconds) than an instrumental track (or a minimix) and after 117 seconds interrupt it with a 4 seconds "landing" sweeper and go back to next track in the RB playlist.

The Virtual DJ Automix feature is really impressive. In addition the RB cue points it could really be great to have, at least for Dance radios. Not sure it could fit Jazz style radios  ???
Developping such a feature will definitivelly be complex I agree! Maybe it could be a licenced plugin that would be an extra paid option in RB!

I agree.
RB crossfader are perfect for 'normal' radio.
This would apply techniques DJ at a radio station. :)

It would be very interesting to see that software uses this station to implement this in RB.


I'm listening iloveradio:
-Channel "Top 40" of the station has crossfader "Conventional"

-The songs are all very similar BMP. (Even I think jingles)
This helps a lot to give your mixes so great.

Maybe I know not configure the virtual DJ AutoMix option, but does horrible things and makes it very clear that this automated.I Prefer RB simple mixtures that.
I used similar BPM trance music and did terrible things:
-Put down several seconds of silence at the end of some songs
-Other Songs framework starting points to 70% of the song
- Overlaps vocal of the songs
- Remove vocal and very quickly becomes apparent the transition. (Should remove the bass and leave vocal  a long time)

If it is as you say and mixtures are automatic, it is well above the automix algorithm that includes VirtualDJ.

Is it possible to prepare 2 minute tracks for this case? I'm not sure how time-limitation should be implemented. Will it just adrupt the event and start playing the next track? This would probably doesn't sound very nice...

The biggest problem here is beat detecting. Doing it automatically and reliably is not too easy... RadioBOSS has BPM detector, but its results are still too far from perfect. Anyway, this feature is added to the future developments list, I'll see what can be done to implement it.

Maybe I know not configure the virtual DJ AutoMix option, but does horrible things and makes it very clear that this automated.I Prefer RB simple mixtures that.
I, too, have big doubts that good mixing could be done automatically. Maybe slight tempo adjustment and shy attempts to position tracks relatively to each other to make their beats go together can be made, just as a little improvement to current mixing engine. There's a chance that mixing will sound better.

Post by: Christian on December 04, 2015, 06:16:39 AM
The "Automix" seems to be a very hot subject   ;D
That is true that at Clubbing Station (http://clubbingstation.com) we use extended DJ versions only and not radio edit. This would help the Automix by having a long intro and outro compared to radio edit version. We use the tracktool to place cue points that best sound for RB.

For the Adbreak request
Yes Dmitry using dedicated 120seconds prepared tracks is a nice sotution except it's a lot of work. Shoutcast Ad breaks are scheduled twice the hour. Even 200 prepared track library will rapidly be boring to listeners. That is why I was suggesting to use the instrumental tracks from our music library. All instrumental tracks are already identified by a special tag. This in used be the PlGenPro to avoid playing 2 instrumental tracks consecutively.

Playlist with voice track.
I would like to be able to generate playlist in advance to be able to record voicetrack during a single weekly session.
The dailly playlist at Clubbing Station is currently broken into 3 parts 1st part a less than 129bmp at night, 2nd part a "no repeat" during working hours not to play the same track twice and finally a 128bpm and over at the evening. Each playlist is generated in the background 10 minutes before it starts to exclude tracks that have been played for the past hours by the previous playlist.
This implies to generate a playlist just before it is played and cannot be generated in advance.
Now I would like to include voice tracks and do the recording during a single session for the week. Of course when recording voice tracks I would like to introduce the next tracks that are going to be played. Any idea on how to do that?

What about this solution: create another event that starts two minutes later, to simply performs the next command? It will terminate the current event and go to the next track. Of course overhead of duplicated events is not convenient, but for now I'm not sure when/if the feature to limit scheduled event duration is going to be implemented.

That means, that all playlists (first, second and third parts) should be generated in one go, so that repeat rules will work across playlists. Currently playlist generator can do it, but only create multiple playlists using the same preset. I think it can be extended to allow creating multiple playlists using different presets. Does it sound like a solution?

In my case there is a modular approach.
To make presets for every event in the year I need to make Categories for every hour and different playlist structure. Hour by hour (00:00 - 23:00) I make this huge work. If I do not save my presets in the next event of the year I have to make it from the beginning (spend at least five hours).


Why cannot copy one or two  Category from a Preset (hour or whatever) to another Preset? To make, for example, the same stupid 12-25 steps for 36 Presets (playlists) is a nonsense. Or why you and your team do not think a better way to do that?

Wise enough. There are no critical or medium-priority bugs open in our bugtracker. Even if something goes wrong, you can quickly install previous version, RadioBOSS can be upgraded and downgraded and all settings will be saved.
I'll install it in the morning  :)

I'm trying "Show Duplicate Tracks".
How often a sign "Too many track" appears, and scanning continues to accept duplicate tracks.
If it is not accepted, the playback stops.

I'm testing it in a playlist of 6400 songs.

Do you mean it always updates the current track info regardless if this optino is checked or not? If may happen only if you use the "Queue mode - Remove played tracks" option - when a track is deleted, it triggers info update.

Ctrl+E is equivalent to pressing the "Broadcasting" button on the toolbar, or enabling Broadcasting in settings. It doesn't check if there are any encoders exist or active...

In manual no information about it was added.
Counter phase means that it sibtracts right channel signal from the left channel singal. This will improve the detection quality, but the DTMF signal itself must be coded in counterphase in order for this to work (it depends on the station you retransmit, if they use counterphase, then you should enable it too).

The problem is in the tag editor.
Sometimes after removing a track (because it ended), the tag editor stops working.

I think the steps to reproduce the error are:
1 Activate the "Delete tracks after playback"
2-start playback.
3-Go to another tab reproduction in list.
After finalize the current track. The tag editor stops working. (clik to a song and not loaded in the tag editor as you can see in the picture)

RadioBOSS 5.4.0.2

Another bug:
In this case the amplification in the "File type"
I have established with amplification "+5 dB" for jingles.

In the output gain (in the plugins panel), I have established -5dB to avoid saturation.
So the content is reproduced -5 dB, except they do Jingles 0 dB. (for amplification)

Despite this I realized that from that updates to RB 5.4. jingles sound saturated.

Title: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta] - BUG?
Post by: pety on December 12, 2015, 03:27:46 AM
I have two USB Behringer sound cards:
Both of them use the same driver from Behringer.
I work with mixer for Live and Podcasting and UCA it's used for PFL (Preview).


The huge issue is that RB doesn't know which is the mixer and it does allocate input and output in control panel settings for UCA, not for X1204USB mixer.


How can be fixed that?


My solution is to use asio4all driver, but is there a way to avoid this?

If it happens for ASIO only, then try checking the "Keep channels initialized" checkbox in Settings->Inputs->MIC device.

The text is for screen reader software (so that visually impaired users can access the graphic buttons). You should disable this mode in RadioBOSS: click View menu and uncheck the "Screen reader" item.

The huge issue is that RB doesn't know which is the mixer and it does allocate input and output in control panel settings for UCA, not for X1204USB mixer.

That's really odd. You need to close Playlist Generator, then disable the Screen Reader setting, and open it again. Please let me know if it doesn't help either.

Dmitry. there were improvements in streaming from version 5.4.0.2?

There was a bug:
I had the buffer in 50 seconds.
When deactivated the internet connection, immediately continued with the next track (without waiting for the buffer is empty).

I did not have time to report it before. Now I'm repeating the test with 5.4.0.3 (on another computer) and this does not happen. (Works perfect)

You can confirm if I change something in the code? if not modify anything, I will test on the same computer to rule out any problems.
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: nelson c on December 14, 2015, 09:01:03 PM
Just repeat the test on the PC that had problems and still happening.

The pretend cuts disabling the network card.

The machine connected by WiFi still playing when I turn off the WiFi plate until the buffer is emptied. (The time that I have seteado about 50 seconds)

The other machine wired network continues immediately with the next track. (when manually disable the network card from Windows)

Perhaps this behavior is "good" because it runs out of network card. But I want to be ruled out by RB problem. The buffer is very useful because in case of a micro cut internet (very common here) continues to play without problems.
If cut to the minimum Internet RB discards the buffer and continues with another track, this is a problem.

Hello Dmitry.
Here Bug:

-I'm listening very distortion tracks that belong to a file type with +5 dB amplification.

The overall output is at -5 dB so in audio bars never go 0 dB. Although this sounds very distorted sound. If under the overall gain to -15 hear all lower, but the distortion persists.

Obviously the problem is when amplification is applied to a file type.

RB 5.3 sounded good.
Examples attached. (Set them in a file type with amplification +5 dB)

Yes, now it detects network disconnect and drops the stream immediately after disconnect is detected.

Perhaps this behavior is "good" because it runs out of network card. But I want to be ruled out by RB problem. The buffer is very useful because in case of a micro cut internet (very common here) continues to play without problems.
If cut to the minimum Internet RB discards the buffer and continues with another track, this is a problem.
When a stream is disconnected, then RadioBOSS will have to reconnect anyway. Now it just detects the fact of a dead stream faster than before.

The last version 5.4.0.3 is impossible selection italian language because not exist.

Yes, the Italian translation was removed temporarily, as it was outdated. Other translations that were not updated since RadioBOSS 5.1 - were removed, too.

Or the file "Rock 1.mp3" is the original?


If it is original, it is an original distorted track:

The problem is right file.

Title: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta] - Calculate Time BUG
Post by: pety on December 16, 2015, 03:16:32 AM
There is an error in Main Playlist.
RadioBOSS does not calculate the time (in real time) when add a new track in main playlist.
In that moment Line.IN was playing.


(http://s27.postimg.org/dzoj8cmz7/Serious_BUG.jpg)

The same thing for ordinary track:

Unfortunately the behaviour is the same for the other playlists (playable or non-playable):
So, i have to uninstall it...

There is a small problem with "no repeat two files of the same file type."

When a file is in between two tracks (and that file does not exist) this configuration is ignored.
RB 5.3 worked fine

pety, nelson c thank you very much for reporting those problems (next track title and incorrect playlist time calculation). It's essentially the same bug - will be fixed in the next update.

When a file is in between two tracks (and that file does not exist) this configuration is ignored.
RB 5.3 worked fine
Thanks for reporting this one!

Dmitry. there were improvements in streaming from version 5.4.0.2?
Yes, now it detects network disconnect and drops the stream immediately after disconnect is detected.

Perhaps this behavior is "good" because it runs out of network card. But I want to be ruled out by RB problem. The buffer is very useful because in case of a micro cut internet (very common here) continues to play without problems.
If cut to the minimum Internet RB discards the buffer and continues with another track, this is a problem.
When a stream is disconnected, then RadioBOSS will have to reconnect anyway. Now it just detects the fact of a dead stream faster than before.
Make new testing.
All satisfactory. RadioBOSS streaming is working perfect.  :D

Dmitry, I have a request.
You can add a "Do not save the playcount nor the last hour of reproduction". (The purpose is not to change the file)
When this feature is used in a test PC it is very useful.
Sometimes I work from a notebook with an external disk editing metadata. (Containing all the music from the main server)
Then I make a difference sync files but both are modified several times. (And in some cases it is a reproduction on PC testing.)

I just wanted to synchronize files to modify metadata and rating

Dmitry, here other problem:

If to start playing a track then continues with a file type "Overwrite crossfader" that mixing point is established, for more then a track is added, which does not have any type of file uses the crossfader that had the kind of archive.
Or if the file that contains the "file type" is removed.


In the example the default mixing time is 3.5 sec.
And the file type 0.5 Sec

As can be seen the mixing time is always the same.

You can turn this off in Settings->General->Append APEv2 tag to every file (uncheck).

I feel this version is laggy, Also there is bugs in the ad scheduler my ads don't play they are skipped. Also Radio boss is using 25 to 30 percent CPU? Oh I also don't know if you addressed the plugins on music overlapping mic? In this version or not. VST's all crash and none will load at all I mean none.
It will use CPU while it reads track information for your playlist. This is done in the background and should not affect operation.

The plugins fix is in the development queue.

Regarding VSTs - some works fine with RadioBOSS, some are not, it depends on the plugins. At some point the VST bridge will be rewritten.

Ok ill try it again I reinstalled so we will see how it runs. This program should not use over %30 cpu and over 1g of ram.

Depending on task it can be normal or not. For intensive operations 100% can be normal too.

It reads tracks in the background, and that eats some CPU (until all tracks are read). It does it as a low priority task, which means that overall PC performance is not affected. After all playlist is processed, CPU usage will be around 1% for audio playback. Do you see any actual problems with PC performance while RadioBOSS is running?

If it uses lots of CPU when you use plugins, then plugins is the cause. RadioBOSS can't control how plugins use CPU.

With this settings, it will always load the aux playlist. With nelson_c setup, it will only load it if the playlist window is empty (otherwise it will simply go to the next track).

I just saw that the actual mixing time is 1 second. (the red bar on the air panel is positioned one second before the end of the mixture)

But I is set at 0.5 seconds.

In previous betas it worked well.
Thanks for reporting, if it's a bug, will be fixed shortly.

Silence detector in the latest version does not load the auxiliary list.
Are you sure that the playlist is empty? It only loads aux playlist if the playlist is empty.

If it was completely empty (emptied because he turned the "Delete tracks when played")
According I can see in the log detector silence not active.
It's strange but in another pc test (which has the same configuration in silent detector) detects silence and writes it to the log

What I can see is that the list is then finished a publicity event. Perhaps this is the problem. (attached screenshot of the log)

I just realized that the list is terminated sooner by a problem because PLGen Pro.

It should generate a playlist 18 hours and see which has generated a list of 12 Hs.
(The list is generated on a networked PC and is issued by another PC)
Title: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta] Tha same annoying BUG
Post by: pety on January 03, 2016, 11:12:57 PM
Dmitriy, I am tired... I give up. This version (5.4.0.7) is for me a downgrade and still beta.
It happened again in this morning. I installed the new version and first thing I did was to test it feeding a playlist. Uffff...  :'( 

Ever never happened in older versions. Can you make a revision of code to see where is the problem? It is clear that something new was implemented in 5.4 version. This anything  new makes serious problems.

Dmitriy, another one, later today on my laptop:

It's a separate issue - you should check your playlist generator preset (perhaps the resulting playlist is shorted because of an error - try generating the playlist manually).
Silence Detector should detect the silence anyway... I've added it to the list of bugs.

This is a result of delayed track information reading (new feature of 5.4). This was done to reduce delays when adding tracks (especially large amounts). As it seems, it's not perfect yet, although our internal tests here did not reveal the problem. In the next version the problem will be fixed. The old code worked just fine, but it was slower...

If the position does not exist, RB returns totally empty. (which is not good or if this is a bug).

this always the way, is not a problem of the latest version

The problem is that when I want to get to get the first node, the application aborts me logically. Nor do I find the property to tell how many there are nodes and avoid this.

You should catch this case in uour program, e.g check for an empty response, or catch the exception.

Yes, indeed. Even when RB starts it works in background too much time.
I will reinstall it. I think it happened when I loaded profile from the previous RB (5.3) which is in Live.

Post by: djsoft on February 03, 2016, 01:06:49 PM
Yes, indeed. Even when RB starts it works in background too much time.
It reads track information to display in the playlist (playcount, start/end points, tags etc) - when it reads all the information, it will stop. The more tracks you have in the playlist, the longer it will take to read all the information. This is done in a very low priority, so shouldn't affect computer or RadioBOSS performance in any way.

I will reinstall it. I think it happened when I loaded profile from the previous RB (5.3) which is in Live.
Importing a profile shouldn't do any harm.

Hi Dmitry, if not attempt to solve this. But the problem persists in the latest version.

So is. (RadioBOSS was updated last night and today stopped working the bar intro)

You can not reproduce there ?.
I'm thinking that maybe only occur with some settings specified, such as I use to "Queue Mode"

Yes, it seems that it only occurs with specific settings and situation. When this happens, does it stop showing the intro bar at all (until restarted)? I also think couple of screenshots are needed when this happens, may be this will shed some light on what's going on.

This is very strange. Now it seems to be working well (without restarting the program).
When I wrote the post did not work at all, he had made a screenshot, but deleted it because I thought it was not necessary.

When it happens again I'll upload a screenshot.

Please let me know if you have more information about the issue. To fix this, the following information is needed: a screenshot and, when it stops appearing, does it happen permamently, or if you start another track, the bar appears again?

From the report it seems that it didn't completely froze. The bugreport means that UI stopped responding for at least 20 seconds. It looks like it "unfroze" after that, but the report window remained.

It "froze" when it was writing the current playback position (for the "resume playback" option). It can indicate faulty disk drive, or that antivirus blocked the write operation.

You can sort the events by the Run In column - this way you'll have events that are supposed to run soon at the top of the list.

Hello Dmitry,
I have a problem with the "Run" command in RB (guess permission)

I have a script that then drive it to generate playlists have to upload to FTP server.

For this task, after it was completed to generate the lists, a command autoit also called Run "Run (" UploadFTP.bat ")" is executed

When I run the .exe manually operating properly.
However, since the command reaches RB not open the CMD (If the lists are generated)
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: djsoft on April 16, 2016, 03:43:09 AM
Are there any error messages when you run the command?
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: nelson c on April 16, 2016, 12:04:27 PM
Any. CMD opens and closes instantly.

Just try running again as administrator RB It does not work


Attached here an example to reproduce the problem. (FTP data are erroneous)
It should be installed the program WinSCP

Create an event in RB running open.exe (Autoit is a script that only contains the code "Run (" subirwebporftp.bat ")")
in the subirwebporftp.bat file must be changed paths

you will see how RB opens and closes the CMD.
When running the Open.exe from the File Manager works correctly

My command at RB:
run C:\Users\Nelson\Documents\Creador.exe

Just I try again and discovered the following:
If I run the .bat directly in RB work.
It does not work when RB run an .exe and then this calls the .bat file (If it works opening this .exe from the file manager)

Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: djsoft on April 17, 2016, 02:17:25 AM
You can try creating a .bat file that calls "creador.exe" file - maybe it will work.
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: nelson c on April 18, 2016, 01:16:49 AM
Thanks for the idea.
Solve it by adding another event that runs an hour later, which executes the .bat

Maybe it is not a BUG but sure it is a different result for file types.
Let me explain it:

Track Tool from RadioBOSS playlist has my own (customised) list of File Type.

Track Properties from Music Library must have the same list of File Type as Track Tool from RadioBOSS playlist.

Right now, in this moment the bug is very alive in our RadioBOSS Live.
Do you know? I like so much the refresh function (calculation time) in playlist that I do not want you to fix this bug :)
But the bug exists. When I add some tracks in playlist or change the order of the tracks refresh function is activated and pause lose broadcast title.

If you cannot reproduce the bug I will make a video.

Title: Restart RadioBOSS BUG
Post by: pety on May 11, 2016, 05:19:41 AM
Very annoying bug: restart PC (RadioBOSS automation restarts) and RadioBOSS plays the playlist even if the playlist was stoped. The second strange bahaviour is that RB plays the playlist from the top.
Can be fixed this bug faster and to be release a fixed RadioBOSS? This bug is very very danger.
Thanks!

Hello Dmitry,
There are plans to improve the library command?

It would be very interesting to be able to search and RB return the results.
For example:
action=library&filename=Base&search=madonna&for=artist

With this you could have full access to program music!

That's odd... The bug never reproduced here. Please share any details on how this can be reproduced.

RadioBOSS crashed when activated Voice Track Recording
It crashed when it was redrawing the styled window (not related to voice track, just a coincidence). Style support doesn't work good on some systems, and there are also known bugs (e.g. menu problem in Aux player) - I reported this bug to Embarcadero (company who develops the IDE where RadioBOSS is developed :) ), when they fix this bug, RadioBOSS will have it fixed too. If this happens often - temporary fix would be to use the standard Windows theme for RadioBOSS.

Hello Dmitry, I found a problem.
Had the option activated "highlight duplicate tracks". (In a playlist with 4,500 songs)
She had constantly pressed the "down" key (for a quick inspection of duplicate tracks) and then the error appeared attached.
I also see another report in the folder that attach RB (I have no idea happened with this)

It doesn't allow starting one jingle multiple times, but you can start different jingles at one time. This is by design. The "Jingles" feature will not be improved further, as there's already more advanced feature - Carts.

But when RadioBOSS restarts it plays the track from the beginning for very short time then it goes fast to the point where was played the last time.

But when RadioBOSS restarts it plays the track from the beginning for very short time then it goes fast to the point where was played the last time.
I'm not sure how this is possible... I did a quick test and it plays fine here. Do you see the first track in the log?

For me resume playlist working - in 5.4.5.1 !
Now on .6.0 i`m not tested it

EDIT : Tested it - working like in 5.4.5.1 and no problem , it starts from where is stopped - no "beginning of the song problem"

XP here , may be problem is on WIN7 only ?!

I doubt this. "Resume playback" simply saves track name and position to a file, and when RadioBOSS starts the next time, it merely finds the track by its name and sets the playback position... It works the same on all systems.

When I create tags with Track Information in playlist and RadioBOSS play the next track all information in Track Information is replaced with the new one.
I really do not understand, why old bugs come back...
And they are a lot...

BTW. I am very busy this week but I will make a video with that serious bug "Resume Playlist."
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: djsoft on May 31, 2016, 03:05:29 AM
This is controlled by the option in the menu: View->Track Information follows playback. If this option is checked, the Track Information will be updated once the new track starts.

In one of the next updated it will be improved - the Track Information tab will check if tag edit is performed and will nor reset.

Dmitriy,
"Resume Playlist" do not resume last action in playlist.
I click stop button and close RadioBOSS.
I start RadioBOSS and it plays the first track in top. Which is a simple track or LineIN.

In 5.3.3.1 I used stop before close RadioBOSS to manually rebroadcast a local radio station by analog mixer.
And I shuted down the PC about 15-20 minutes.
After this short pause I restarted PC and RadioBOSS started with Windows. But it correctly load the latest command which was stop. So, I could manually start the ID station and the next track etc., etc.

In the latest version RadioBOSS do not take the latest command/operation which is STOP and it plays the track. Am I clear enough? You know that my english is poor... If it is not enough saturday I will make a video for demonstration. Thanks!

great news :D

I am sorry, I will make a more detailed explanation.

The situation is the following:
A daily play list is generated by Gen Pro PlayList 18 hours of music.
This is done by the scheduler and the music is in a network folder.
It takes a few minutes using the local network, which does not seem excessive. (I guess this analyzing metadata files).
Once completed this, starts to use the CPU and takes several hours (at least three) to complete.

It is normal to take more than 3 hours?

Do you mean it takes 3 hours to generate the playlist? It's not normal to me... The time depends on how many tracks are involved, complexity of the rules etc.
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: nelson c on June 06, 2016, 10:40:03 PM
So is.
Running manually takes 2 hours 40 minutes.
Can it be due to missing tracks in a category?
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: klinsoft on June 07, 2016, 03:41:43 AM
Why i not notice this behavour before ?

If my space is full , i found that RadioBoss tries to save every 5 seconds the playlist in the profile folder , even that Autosave profile is OFF ! When it do that(in normal way with available space) i found also a little freeze in the spectral indicator in the "On air" track panel, may be because i have a lot of songs (more than 35000).
Is this normal or is some BUG ? If you can emulate full drive , do it and you`ll see.

I`m not having full space for first time and old versions(even old 5.4 versions) are not doing this !?
If it`s a normal behavour , then make it as option to be choosed ON or OFF, because if space is empty, then RB plays the current track and than just stop, untill you close the message . Even that one time i have a total freeze and was forced to reload the program.

The log suggests that you have pretty complex no-repeat rules, and finding a track that fits all the criteria takes significant amounts of time. Sometimes, when it fails to find a track, it adds error message to the log.

You can try turning off all of the no-repeat rules, and run playlist generation. Then turn them on one by one to see which one introduces the lag.

There's not much can be done to improve that... I can advice you to run the generation by scheduler, 3 or 4 hours in advance, and then start the generated playlist using a separate scheduled event.

It will perioducally save the playlist if you have the Resume Playback turned on. We'll do something about the freezes it causes.

I now got it .
I enable the Resume playlist recently , and that is why i "see" this for first time

So, the only problem remains the error message stop the playback (may be it`s normal to show message). but it`s not normal to stop the processing i think

EDIT : , OK , more findings

When error message is showed , "On air" track line visualisation is freezed too( this is the line that moves from left to right)! no moving.
Times for the current track are freezed too (from beginning and remain time) on both sides of "on air" panel

Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: klinsoft on June 07, 2016, 11:37:00 PM
I checked it - no bug report generated for this . With error message i mean message that pops up as window for "Error writing file ... bla bla bla some path to the settings folder/XXXX.m3u"  And then all this objects are frozen(not moving or counting) + music stops after the end of current track.
If you click on OK, music continue and message continue to pop up too, untill you free some space on drive


If needed i`ll make a video to show, but i think it`s all clear - if Resume playlist is ON and no space available , this pop message makes thr program to stop automation (interupts the playback)

I also try with "Resume playlist" OFF and no problem with automation work, program is playing just well with no space available and no stopping after current track..

I think this "resaving" after every 5 seconds is extremely often and this writing to the HDD is it healthy ? Can this option be only saving the track position on exit and no writing  all playlist every few seconds ?  User can always save playlist via the File menu->  Save as..
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]

Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: klinsoft on June 09, 2016, 05:33:25 AM
There is NO Details . It`s just error writing file with OK , because of no space on HDD. Nothing more, but this message makes program to stop automate untill you close it - after 5 seconds it pops again. That is why rewriting playlist every 5 seconds is unneeded, i can save it whatever i need and want :)

On close you said it saves only track name/position , but it saves whole playlist too (when workig normally).

Please check the picture.
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: djsoft on June 10, 2016, 03:31:02 AM
Thanks for the information. It will show the message anyway, because as you say, there's no free space on the disk.

When you have the Resume Playback enabled, it also saves the playlist - in case RadioBOSS closes unexpectedly, it need to have a copy of the playlist in order to resume playback properly.
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: klinsoft on June 10, 2016, 06:50:01 AM
Ok, bu this copy of the playlist can be saved at start of the program (let`s say) .. and still if crashed, again will be saved

Also if option is enabled and if i save/resave/or it has changes.. i again will save it . So if option is enabled and i make a save - it again can make a copy itself . But every 5 seconds is not good .

So if you don`t understand me - i`ll say it this way:

1 Option enabled, then

 - at start of program, check if enabled - and make a "save copy" ..It can be edited or not (but will be saved)
 - If i make changes due to work of program and save (manually) the playlist, again to make it`s copy ( auto and additionally to my save)
 - even when i change any tag or something else - again with pressing the "save tag" or else - it auto make a save .

Tell me if i`m not doing anything and just program works without to touch it , why it writes same files again and again without any changes

I want to say that only if somethng is changed (and option is enabled) , so only then you put this routine to make the autosave.
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: djsoft on June 10, 2016, 09:49:44 AM
Yes, I think it will be possible to make it save the playlist only if it was changed - I scheduled this change the upcoming minor update (5.4.7.1).
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.4 [beta]
Post by: klinsoft on June 10, 2016, 11:04:48 AM

Good, I wanted to congratulate the excellent radio software that is RadioBOSS in which I use for my webradio.
I wish you would improve the resource now playing in xml that gives us the name of the song to our website, could improve in order to provide the xml document the previous song, the current song (which already has this feature) and the next song (which already have, but with some mistakes, since instead of the song name appears jingle name that will be used), loved having this function in RadioBOSS to be even better.

Good, I wanted to congratulate the excellent radio software that is RadioBOSS in which I use for my webradio.
I wish you would improve the resource now playing in xml that gives us the name of the song to our website, could improve in order to provide the xml document the previous song, the current song (which already has this feature) and the next song (which already have, but with some mistakes, since instead of the song name appears jingle name that will be used), loved having this function in RadioBOSS to be even better.
Thank you!
You can lead the list of previous tracks on the web site (store the history somewhere, e.g. in a DB). We'll extend the list of "Next Tracks" in the future.

How do you modify rating, using Track Tool or right-click menu in the playlist?
Only appears right-click menu.
Thanks for additional information, added to the list of bugs.

A cascade of Access violation when tried to overwrite curent playlist when generated a new one.
THis can be improved like:
- Check if current playlist is an active one. If YES, message: try to save (overwrite) the playlist in a non-active playlist.
Thanks for reporting. As for asking to overwrite, I'm not sure if it will work good, as you send the playlist from the playlist generator, and the request will appear in RadioBOSS window...

Unfortunately Playlist Generator Pro do not use tracks from imported Presets.
Is it in work?
Can you please provide a step by step instruction to reproduce it? Please also confirm what version do you use (there was a bug with imported presets in some of the previous releases).

I made a mistake. I created a huge playlist with few tracks... and of course it did not work.
I did it again and it worked.
By the way!
Great, great [Import categories] in Playlist generator. Finaly we have this awesome feature. Thanks a lot!


One more thing:


Can you make Import Presets Window a litle bit larger and panel separator resizable? Thanks!

Yes - I scheduled this improvement for RadioBOSS 5.5.
