Great job!, I'm waiting for my serial to start trying :)

Then I need information to Automatic Teaser, Make backup of the database, etc.
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.6 [beta]
Post by: nelson c on April 12, 2017, 06:10:55 PM
That data is stored in the database?.
I imagine that the rating, custom fields, last playing (very useful, now the incremental backups will be much more already fast to not modify files when you play :D)

To add teaser click Playlist->Add Teaser. You can set Hook In/Out points in Track Tool, or let RadioBOSS decide what part of track to include in the teaser.

Database is stored in a single file, it's SQLite database - you can backup this file.

That data is stored in the database?.
I imagine that the rating, custom fields, last playing (very useful, now the incremental backups will be much more already fast to not modify files when you play :D)
Yes, if you switch to using database, all additional information (playcount, rating, gender etc) will be stored in database and music files will not be modified when played.

Some problems with Shuffle Playlist on ADS Scheduler:
-Doesn't work when using overlay player
-Mix the entire list (start and end blocks not is should mix)
Yes, I think this feature will be redesigned.

You can convert metadata from Music Library: clock Tools->Convert additional info... (be careful when you choose conversion direction).

Database is stored in a single file, it's SQLite database - you can backup this file.
Where is the DB stored? What is the name of the file? :)
It's one level up from the settings folder: i RadioBOSS click Settings->Open settings folder, then navigate to parent folder, you'll see tracks.db file there (there may also be *wal* files if you have RadioBOSS or any of its modules open - those are temporary files.

When I add a song to the list from the API, the GetPlaylist2 command does not display the metadata, nor the duration. Only the file name
The getplaylist2 command is the faster (way faster especially for large playlists) version of getplaylist command, but it returns limited data.

It returns track duration in the DURATION field and track title (according to title format) in the CASTTITLE field.

The feature will be redesigned to allow shuffling ads only, while leaving all other items in place. In its current state, it merely enables the "Shuffle playlist" in the event, and RadioBOSS does the shuffling.

What for are hooks?
Hook is a small (3-6 seconds) part of a track, just enough to recognize it. Hooks are used in the Teaser feature: Playlist->Add Teaser. It then creates a preview of songs that are coming up next, or selects the song you want to be in the teaser.
Here's the thread with more details on how it works and its purpose: https://www.djsoft.net/smf/index.php/topic,4815.msg23555.html#msg23555

RadioBOSS also features the AutoHook thing, where it tries (with variable success :) ) to select the "most recognizable part of a song" automatically, making Teasers easier to use. AutoHook only works if it's enabled and only for tracks with no HookIn/HookOut points set.

Great addition! :D

I tried it two or three times and in one the entire program freezes completely. (The window was open)
First the audio bars were locked and the program was silent after the opening jingle.
Then the program went blank and completely blocked without any bug report.

It could be that those tracks have long endings, also with lots of quiet parts in the middle... Please try testing again with the same tracks, and if AutoHook chooses bad hooks - send those tracks to support@djsoft.net to analyze.

Teaser:

Just downloaded Beta. 

Teaser function seems to have a 1 second silent gap between the Teaser INTRO and first tease.  There is at times a gap at the end of the teaser END.  Is there anyway to adjust this?

Also, whilst playing the Transition, programme crashed and infinite transition sound heard.

Hope this helps!

I second the request for the "Teaser" or "Coming up next" feature in RadioBoss.  Here is an example  https://clyp.it/1hkt2vob

The teaser comprises of elements :
Intro - "Coming up in the next half hour"
Transition - "Vinyl Record spinback"
End - "Stay tuned"

Using Track Tool, you would select a HOOK IN point and a HOOK OUT point as you do with START, INTRO etc.
The feature then plays the HOOK.

Intro - "Coming up in the next half hour"
HOOK - 1st song
Transition - "Vinyl Record spinback"
HOOK - 1st song
Transition - "Vinyl Record spinback"
HOOK - 2nd song
Transition - "Vinyl Record spinback"
HOOK - 3rd song
Transition - "Vinyl Record spinback"
HOOK - 4th song
Transition - "Vinyl Record spinback"
End - "Stay tuned"

There should be no gap. The only situation where we had gap issue here during the internal testing, is when hard drive performance and/or CPU performance is not enough (=slow) - in this case it did not have time to load tracks in a timely manner, as the teaser is created "on the fly" immediately after its playback started - it's not prepared before. The teaser feature performs the best on SSD drive and fast CPU (e.g. Core i5 or the like), it's even more important if you utilize AutoHook, it requires more processing power to automatically determine hook points.

Also, whilst playing the Transition, programme crashed and infinite transition sound heard.
That shouldn't be happening... Did you see any error messages? If there's an error message, please click the Details button and then "Send bug report" button. Without the bug report it's hard to tell where the things go wrong.

Noted! The gap occurs intermittently so I am testing to see whether it is "Intro Audio" file specific i.e. does one audio file have silence at the end?
I am currently using an automated playout system and trialed others with "teasers" scheduled with the very same audio files and it works perfect everytime with my current setup. 

Here is the a teaser working at its best using a different system. https://www.djsoft.net/smf/index.php/topic,4846.msg23769.html#msg23769

The autohook feature turned off.  5 tracks selected. 5 second duration. Shuffle off. What happens is the teaser at times misses the first song and acts as if shuffle is active.  Then you will hear the transition audio fire twice followed by infinite playing if any attempt to click out of the "loop?"   No error message displayed.  Bug reports sent during crash!

in the song that I attached usually take the end of the topic, when doing a fadeout, which is very bad. (But do not always choose the same autohook)
(10 seg the duration)

I think internally could have some filters to avoid these things:
Discard the initial 10% and 10% of a track. (to avoid fadein or fadeout that have themes, rests, etc.)
For tracks which have an intro and outro manual, autohook should be between the two

Currently RadioBOSS does not trim silence for jingles used in teaser - the next update will do it.

I am currently using an automated playout system and trialed others with "teasers" scheduled with the very same audio files and it works perfect everytime with my current setup.
It should sound the same in RadioBOSS, if you select the same hook points and use the same jingles.

If it works differently, can you please give some specifics on how it's different? You can also send your music files along with jingles so we can add it to our tests here and improve the feature.

The autohook feature turned off.  5 tracks selected. 5 second duration. Shuffle off. What happens is the teaser at times misses the first song and acts as if shuffle is active.  Then you will hear the transition audio fire twice followed by infinite playing if any attempt to click out of the "loop?"   No error message displayed.  Bug reports sent during crash!
How often does it happen? It doesn't appear to reproduce here... In the next version we'll add operation log for teasers, it will shed some light on what happens in its internals. Currently it's the first incarnation and system may need some tweaks to become reliable.

Think that not will understand what I say.
The problem here is that you jingles them radio, advertising, etc, should not be advertised by Teasers.
Ej "In the next hour you'll hear".
-Song 1
-Jingle(Skip)
-Song 2
It already does that: it skips tracks that are shorter than 50 seconds - it should cover all jingles, station IDs and the like.

I'm not sure - technically it's not that easy as mixing in RadioBOSS is tied to real time. I don't think that this feature will be added anytime soon - sorry.

-There is an error in the interface, start game to start, and end the start
-I can not do a pre-listening of the point (not button play)
-I would like a button "Copy point that has the intro"
-probability is used for that?
The Start/End switch specifies how the VoiceOver mark works: if set to Start, then voiceover will start there, if End - then voiceover will end there. Can you please specify what is the bug there?
Probability sets the chance for voiceover to play, 100% means always, 50% - voiceover will play roughly half of the time. This increases diversity.
There are no additional buttons like Play or Copy because as you see there's no much screen space available :)

I just realize that the problem is another.
When there is a normal between two types of files, is used an incorrect point of mixture. (see image)
It appears to be correct. If you override mix point, then detected mix point is ignored (the Override Mix setting has higher priority).

1 minute jingle seems sort of long to me... I think that would be possible, configurable filters for teasers will be added in one of the next updates.

I am doing tests with voiceover and the truth is that the new features are very good.
Just made missing a command that indicates to radioboss a schedule to be able to use the voiceover or to be able to indicate that it disconnects them.
This would be very useful if you wish to have announcer only in the morning, for example, and not at night.

On the other hand, I see that the reproduction of several ad tracks in the advertising programmer has not been included. Is this very complicated?

Hello, Help. I think I'm the only one who does not understand Automatic Teaser and hook points. Someone should make a video how to set it up correctly. Thanks you.

The Start/End switch specifies how the VoiceOver mark works: if set to Start, then voiceover will start there, if End - then voiceover will end there. Can you please specify what is the bug there?
Probability sets the chance for voiceover to play, 100% means always, 50% - voiceover will play roughly half of the time. This increases diversity.
There are no additional buttons like Play or Copy because as you see there's no much screen space available :)
I am sorry. There is no error here, I just thought it worked differently.

We need some way to listen to the selected point. (Although not through buttons) :)

I just realize that the problem is another.
When there is a normal between two types of files, is used an incorrect point of mixture. (see image)
It appears to be correct. If you override mix point, then detected mix point is ignored (the Override Mix setting has higher priority).
The track that continues, is not a file type
The selected function should only affect the mix of the track, at the end of this track that follows.
(Because the continuous track is also a file type)
The priority here should be the transition point of the file type.(In this case 0.5 seconds)
Or am I missing something?
Everything works fine, if after this track "That is not a file type" continues another normal track, but fails to have another type of file

The problem with the traditional intro is still present.
(If a voicetrack after the current track file type is inserted, it plays at the beginning)
Can you please provide more information and example of when this happens?
The new audio engine is not ready yet.
When I add a file type that is assigned to "Use as voicetrack", after the current track. This is played immediately instead of the intro of the song.

I have already informed you and I believe it is in the known errors and will be solved with the new audio engine.
What other characteristics can we expect with the new engine? :)

This is just my suggested actions and is not official instructions:

RadioBoss Teaser feature:

1. Create a folder called TEASERS:

2. Create three NEW folders in the TEASERS folder and label them:
INTRO
TRANSITIONS
END

3. Place your audio files (Sweepers) into the INTRO folder. e.g  "Coming up in then next have hour", "Stay tuned to hear these great hits".  Place as many as you like as they will play randomly at the beginning of your TEASER segment.

4.Place your audio files into your TRANSITION folder.  e.g a "sound effect or  record spinback"

5. Place your audio files (sweepers) into the END folder that you wish your Teaser Segment to end with.  e.g.  "your station id" , "Stay tuned" , "Coming up next"

6.  Now you have all your audio files in the INTRO and END folders and sound effects (or Voice) in your TRANSITION folder, remember where you have saved them.  You will need to select these folders from the Teaser feature in RadioBOSS.

7. In RadioBOSS, you need to use TRACK TOOL to insert the HOOK START and HOOK END into the song.

8. Select a song from your playlist by right clicking it and then select TRACK TOOL.  Once TRACK TOOL is open and you can see your song, look to the right for HOOK IN and HOOK OUT.   

9. Simply click on the part of the song that is most recognisable, (the chorus), and at the start of it press SET "HOOK IN" ti insert the part where the Hook starts. Do the same for the end of the Chorus or the part you wish to use and click HOOK OUT. 

10. Ideally you want to select about 5 seconds of your TEASE.  Do this for all the tracks that you wish to include in your TEASER segment.

11.Close the TRACK TOOL

12. On the RadioBOSS menu bar, select PLAYLIST and scroll down to ADD TEASER

13. It will ask you to input the path for your INTRO, TRANSITION and END folders. The rest of the settings is up to your own preference.

14. Hit OK and RadioBoss will insert "TEASER" into your playlist.

If you chose to play 5 tracks then the output should be as follows:

INTRO - "Your INTRO File sweeper"  e.g "Coming up in the next half hour on XYX Radio"
5 seconds of the "HOOK"
TRANSITION file 
5 seconds of the "HOOK"
TRANSITION file 
5 seconds of the "HOOK"
TRANSITION file 
5 seconds of the "HOOK"
TRANSITION file 
5 seconds of the "HOOK"
END file  "Your END Sweeper" e.g "Stay tuned to the hottest station"

Hope that helps

Yes, it sounds reasonable - we'll add commands to enable and disable voiceovers using the scheduler.

On the other hand, I see that the reproduction of several ad tracks in the advertising programmer has not been included. Is this very complicated?
It's in the queue to be developed and will be done in one of the future versions.

Hello, Help. I think I'm the only one who does not understand Automatic Teaser and hook points. Someone should make a video how to set it up correctly. Thanks you.
Cheshunt Radio did a very good job explaining how to use it. I'll add that you can also use the AutoHook feature if you don't want to bother with manually setting the hook points - in this case RadioBOSS will try to detect hook points automatically. Also none of the Start/Transition/End parts are mandatory, you can e.g. try it without using Transition, and results may be better sometimes (depends on the genre of the music).

Note that Teaser feature currently has a bug, and as a result it can hang RadioBOSS on some computers. Soon an update will be released to fix it, along with other reported bugs.

Everything works fine, if after this track "That is not a file type" continues another normal track, but fails to have another type of file
Currently file type setting "Override previous track mix point" has higher priority and it won't be changed. This setting allows to run commercials and be sure that they are not overlapped with music or jingle.

When I add a file type that is assigned to "Use as voicetrack", after the current track. This is played immediately instead of the intro of the song.

I have already informed you and I believe it is in the known errors and will be solved with the new audio engine.

Yes, this bug is on the list. As for the new audio engine, it'll provide some useful additions: fully featured players for Overlay playback, AUX players, fixing some odd bugs with mixing etc. Also lower CPU usage and more precise crossfading (currently it's +-100ms).

Exactly, that is the idea I have of this function.
In other words modifies the point of mixing of normal tracks, when it follows a track of this "file type"
But in the image that attached this by changing the point of mixing, the same type of file.

This example may be more easy:
-Music
-Jingle (file type)
-Music
-Jingle (file type)

with the option "Override previous track mix point", is should modify the mixing point by default, only in the music (for example the second song should apply this time to the mix, since continuous file type). But never change the time of mixture of the Jingle.
The image can be seen as the mixing time of the jingle, that should be 0.5, is actually 1.5

Currently there's no easy way to share the database on the network... We may consider adding a config option to set database file location, so that you can use shared network folder to access it (but it shouldn't be used for playback as network can create a delay).

(Because the continuous track is also a file type)

with the option "Override previous track mix point", is should modify the mixing point by default, only in the music (for example the second song should apply this time to the mix, since continuous file type). But never change the time of mixture of the Jingle.
The image can be seen as the mixing time of the jingle, that should be 0.5, is actually 1.5
any idea about because this happens?

So the "Jingle" here has the "Override previous track mix" set? I think you should create a separate topic about it and provide more details - it will be easier to discuss there.

It would be good to show the player when a VoiceTrack play.

If it happens again, please wait for the "freeze" message box to pop up and then send the bug report.

Are inserted automatically always this track is playing?
Yes.

What happens when using witch Teasers?
Teasers do not play voiceovers.

The duration in autohoot by default is disabled. (When you have the window and autohoot this enabled)

Yes, it's a UI bug - will be fixed in the next update.

We have plans on adding categories in the future, but generally RadioBOSS doesn't use Music Library much - it's mostly used for search, or for bulk tag editor. But using a library is not necessary at all...

The idea is to use Playlist Generator and create track categories there, usually based on folders. After you have this  configured, you just add new music tracks to folders, and playlist generator will use them automatically. This eliminates the need to manually "import" tracks to music library each time you add new songs.

You can find more information about Playlist Generator here: http://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/using_playlist_generator_pro.htm

Also, why not implementing the TUNEIN API, so that Radio Boss could send Metadata to TuneIn ? they will give you the code on demand... and it brings a lots of new listeners...

A speaker may speak about the intro and overlap with the voicetrack if you don't know that it exists.

Other software have a unique place in the interface for this, showing the time remaining for that start, and the opportunity to cancel it.
Would be very good to something like this
Do you refer to the new Voiceover feature?
Exactly :)

I'm not sure about this... You can double-click on text and copy-paste it to the necessary field. How often Intro and VO are the same points?
in our case it is exactly the same.
Therefore our intention to simplify this. (All our tracks have already marked the point intro and would have to migrate all this)
Or maybe add an option "use the intro points, if not this point"
of voicetrack"

Hello friends, I downloaded the beta version 5.6
By testing Ads Schedulers, I can not even program in groups yet. It would be great to be able to program by group and to randomly take an audio from those who are active within the group. I get new audios from clients every week and I have to reprogram them again. (Sorry for the English, google traslator)

Hello,

We are currently testing the BETA version in our studio. Getting the music files from our server works fine. No issues with the installation but some remarks to the graphic layout. We use the dark theme as our default. The music library and cross-fade editor are displayed on a second monitor. These windows are in a different theme. Is there a way both cross-fade and music library can be displayed with the same theme as the main windows ?

Dmitry, can you add an option to track tool for excluding a song from a teaser?
For sure, you can specify a song as a voice track, but this is a little bit senseless. :D


Edit: In relation to hthis (https://www.djsoft.net/smf/index.php/topic,4815.msg23881/topicseen.html#msg23881) the "Set" buttons need to be a few pixels more in length in the track tool ... think, 10 pixels are enough for german translation string.

Therefore our intention to simplify this. (All our tracks have already marked the point intro and would have to migrate all this)

It should use the Intro point as Voiceover point set to End? I mean, end the voiceover where Intro ends?

This feature (selecting one of the multiple audio files) is planned for the future updates. I think we'll add it in this beta, or in one of the RadioBOSS 5.6.x updates.

Making those buttons larger is a bit of problem (it will break the symmetry with Play and other buttons)... How does "Set" translate in German, maybe there are some shorter ways? We can also make font a bit smaller for it to fit.

Dmitry, can you add an option to track tool for excluding a song from a teaser?

You can set Hook Out before Hook In, or set only either of Hook In or Hook Out and it will effectively exclude it from Teaser :)

In relation to this issue of translations, in the Spanish translation (which is perfect), there are buttons where you can not see the whole text. I personally have solved translating them, but of course in each update these corrections are lost. On the other hand, nowadays areas of text that I can not find in the language files.

My question is, is there any possibility of agreeing with the Spanish translators to solve this? And in the same way, where are the rest of the translation files of RadioBoss?

I repeat again, so that there are no misunderstandings, that the translation into Spanish is perfect.

En relación a este asunto de traducciones, en la traducción en español (que es perfecta), hay botones donde tampoco se ve todo el texto. Yo personalmente lo he solucionado traduciendolos, pero claro en cada actualización se pierden estas correcciones. De otro lado, hoy zonas de texto que no encuentro en los archivos de lenguaje.

Mi pregunta es, ¿Hay posibilidad de ponerse de acuerdo con el/los traductores españoles para solucionar esto? Y del mismo modo, donde se alojan el resto de archivos de traducción de RadioBoss?

Vuelvo a insistir, para que no haya mal entendidos, que la traducción en español es perfecta.

I think the work should be made shorter, like "Set.", or just leave "Set" as it is. It's not easily possible to make a font a bit smaller for technical reasons.

My question is, is there any possibility of agreeing with the Spanish translators to solve this? And in the same way, where are the rest of the translation files of RadioBoss?
You can send us your modifications to support@djsoft.net, and we'll include them in the "official" translation files, so you don't need to redo this each time a new version comes out. In addition, you can also point out where the text doesn't fit, so maybe we can also extend the fields to make text fit (a screenshot of "problem places" will do).

Exactly, in our case where the speaker ends, the voice of the singer begins. This matches the intro.

I think you should wait for the next feature that is planned - Auto Intro. This will work similar to Voiceovers, but it will have selection rules (based on artist name, on comment etc) and will act at Intro point.

Could it be possible to implement a Level Parameter for each encoder instance ?
i explain : When you send many streams with many audio codecs, not all are sensible to a High audio level entering in the codec... AAC is stronger than, mp3 and mp3 than HeAAC+ v2 sbr... it could be an interesting thing to have a +/- 3 dB audio slider somewhere before each codec instance... opinions are welcome...

It shouldn't be happening - all encoders in RadioBOSS produce the same audio level. If it's not for you, can you please send screenshots of your encoder settings so we'll test it here.

Hi,

1. Minor thing in RB 5.6.0.1: the Tracks and Play time left labels appear to be overlapping the 1px frame (see attachment). Screen resolution on test laptop is 1680x945.

2. When using 'Insert stop' after it is 'played' it remains in the playlist when using it in Queue mode. This doesn't happen if the stop is programmed in via the ad scheduler, it runs the 'stop' then removes it from the playlist. Will the next version have it so a 'stop' is removed from the playlist after it is actioned?

3. With regards to 'Start time' if the playlist is currently stopped, all of the start time entries are blank. Is it possible to have it so the start time is showing even when the player is stopped? For example, incrementally increasing the start time each second the player is paused, and then it switches to what shows up now when the player is actively playing a track?

4. It is currently possible to drag a blank cart into the playlist. If it's played it shows up with an error in the log file saying 'unable to play' but otherwise doesn't interfere with the normal playback, the playlist skips over it and continues.

Some other bugs previously advised have been updated and appear to be working, thanks for providing these fixes.

Hello, I do not quite understand the role of the new "SQL Database" functions. How is this managed?

Personally I have the music in OneDrive and if I select File tag, OneDrive upload continuously updates the data and it is all day updating the files. On the other hand if I select Database SQL, this does not make the changes in OneDrive and it does not help me to have made a change in the music track so that the pc of emission (which I have in the sending center) is updated.
In version 5.5.5.0 I did not have that problem since I unchecked "Append APEv2 tag to every ..." and everything went well.
There is no way to do it the previous way?

It can be possible, but what is the purpose if this feature? By the way, when the playlist is not playing, you can right-click on a track and click "Calculate start time" if you want to preview start times.

4. It is currently possible to drag a blank cart into the playlist. If it's played it shows up with an error in the log file saying 'unable to play' but otherwise doesn't interfere with the normal playback, the playlist skips over it and continues.
Appears to be a bug - thank you.

I want to Report, that the hot key "Ins" doesn't seam to work for adding files from Explorer or other file Managers like Total Commander.
The INS key only works in the File Explorer inside RadioBOSS - it's not global and it will not work from other file managers, nor from Windows Explorer.

Dmitry will you be including the COMPOSER field in the report generator so it will autoamtically extract that data from the tag? 
Currently you can define your own custom fields (in Music Libray, Tools->User defined fields), but RadioBOSS doesn't read "Composer" tag field.

That's because file tag is modified, and therefore the file is modified and OneDrive updates it. Using SQLite database to store additional information will avoid that.

When you uncheck this option, the additional tag information will not be stored anywhere. If you select "Use SQLite Database" option is works as if you have unchecked the "Append APEv2 tag to every ..." option but instead of not saving tag at all, it stores everything in the database.

For timing out purposes. We have our presenters run adverts every 19th minute and 39th minute each hour, so if the player is stopped after a scheduled break, it would allow them to time their 'play' better for the next break. Our news comes in at xx:59 each applicable hour as well, so it would be handy for that too. They can see it and drag songs around at the moment to try and make the transition to the news more 'on time'. The intention is for the ad scheduler to populate the playlist 1 minute early, the current song to finish playing, and then the scheduled break runs after. We don't force it or anything like that. It was a feature on our previous play out system which is why some of our presenters have requested it. We do it this way instead of on the minute (e.g. xx:00) to prevent a song cutting off prematurely before the news or a sponsor gets put in, just sounds a bit better even at the moment when the timing isn't 100% on time.

Thanks.

Is it possible on log window, when press right mouse button, to be added "Add to playback queue" also ?
Just an idea. It`s  faster to see back songs there, instead to search with playlist search and again to add it
You can drag the track to the playlist from the log.

I can, but this leads to repeating tracks in the playlist  - double/tripple etc entries. In this case i must delete after "adding to queue" .

After the update in my test PC, RadioBOSS is hung when starting playback. (For what I see has to do with the database)
Yes, it appears that database fails under certain circumstances - should be fixed in the next update.

Now its not showing, But i notice when i am casting the response time to server varies. But when i reboot software, Well its pretty much instant. Why is this? Why does software delay time to server randomly, Witch should not do that it don't matter if i am casting for 5 hours 4 days should be instant always.
I'm not sure if I understood the question. What is the response time?

Also do I need to own VB-Virtual audio Cable?
VB Cable is free software, but if you find it useful, please consider donating some money to its author: http://vb-audio.pagesperso-orange.fr/Cable/index.htm

How do I add the Teaser Scheduler?
Please click the Wizard button in the event window, select "Automatic announcement" then select "Teaser".

I notice it lags more though but could be my focusrite. I just bought a Yamaha mixer and people say we sound amazing.

Some problems with Shuffle Playlist on ADS Scheduler:

-Mix the entire list (start and end blocks not is should mix)
Yes, I think this feature will be redesigned.
Is this already implemented? I would like to use this feature

If you add it to the queue, it can repeat as well... I'm not sure it should play tracks from the log directly, it's a bit odd :)

Hello again. Testing the Teaser I realized that also the advertising cuts that are between the songs (if there are any) are issued, but this should not be the case. Teaser should only detect the music tracks, or am I wrong?
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.6 [beta]
Post by: jopara on May 02, 2017, 06:46:17 AM
I answer myself, the advertising cut that is included in the Teaser is an advertizing that lasted 1 minute and two seconds. Adjusting that goes well, only that the rest of advertising cuts are not skipped and you only hear the effect.

The latest version (5.6.0.2) allows to skip file types, if advertisements belong to any file type. You can also exclude short tracks, set the filter to 70 seconds and that should do it.

also, when passing the mouse on the icon : you've got the title on air and the name of the station... Well i think the name of the station is not usefull, generally you know who you are and what's the name of ur station no ?
Instead i propose to have the number of listeners, that could be more usefull, and then no need to maximize SB layout to know ur audience... Just a proposal... Greetz

You can remove it from the taskbar - uncheck the "Place button in the taskbar" in Settings->General

also, when passing the mouse on the icon : you've got the title on air and the name of the station... Well i think the name of the station is not usefull, generally you know who you are and what's the name of ur station no ?
Sometimes multiple stations are broadcast from one computer, so it's a way to determine what instance it is.

Hello Dmitry
The first install on a fresh machine of 5.6 went ok then all of a sudden it would not play the music folder skipped everything. Sorry I didnt look for any faults or reports was too corrupted
Deleted that version reinstalled 5.5.5.0. Installed backup files
downloaded fresh 5.6 and installed over the top
after one week on local it is working fine very stable
Not sure what happened with first install of 5.6 but working much better with second setup
So far so good

When you can use database to generate a playlist on two computers that are in network:
Will it be necessary to read all the tracks, or can you assemble the list and apply the filters using the data stored in the database?
It would be a great improvement. It takes a lot of time to generate a playlist with 14,000 songs. (and counting I have a gigabit local network)

Only for priority rules currently.

When you can use database to generate a playlist on two computers that are in network:
SQLite database can't be used over a network. We tested it, and it's not stable enough (shared network folders lack some features that are needed for shared database access). For this, we'll introduce another database, e.g. MySQL that can be used over a network.

Will it be necessary to read all the tracks, or can you assemble the list and apply the filters using the data stored in the database?
In the future, it will use database only - no track reading. Currently it will read track tag anyway.

Thanks for the new Radioboss Version! :-)
The idea to implement Teasing in Radioboss is fantastic..but the way to handle that is not really usable :-(
What do you think about to handle that like *mairlist* I can pick music files to a container and after that i can work with a track editor to cut the teasing file. In Radioboss i can`t do that and i don`t have access to put music files on top or on bottom .
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.6 [beta]
Post by: djsoft on May 10, 2017, 04:56:05 AM
The purpose of automatic teasers is to be fully automatic - to eliminate the need of manual audio edits. You can adjust track part (hook) that will be included in the teaser - set Hook In and Hook Out marks in the Track Tool. Or let RadioBOSS automatically decide which part to use :)

Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.6 [beta]
Post by: djsoft on May 10, 2017, 06:16:13 AM
You can use the folder source (it's sorted alphabetically) and rename files to appear in the right order. Or place files in the playlist and make teaser announce "Coming up next" tracks in the playlist. Make sure Shuffle in the teaser settings is unchecked.

I'd like to note that teaser module is designed to be dynamic - each time the teasers are be different, to create diversity. Not to play same teaser, same songs in the same order, over and over again.

This won't be added to RadioBOSS. One of the reasons, as you mentioned - it causes problems when using screen reader software. But even without screen readers, it prevents selecting the search field using keyboard (up/down keys).

RB 5.6.0.3 Beta:

When window is minimized to taskbar and you want to reopen it, it takes approx 5 seconds until the window is visible and usable overall. The GUI doesn't run smooth in either way. (Same when you start RB from start menu.)

Post by: southernfm on May 14, 2017, 12:02:41 AM
Hi,

Thanks for adding in the 'last played' toolbox. A minor suggestion would be adding 'LAST PLAYED' to the song that is on the top of the list, and 'PREVIOUSLY PLAYED' underneath, so the presenter knows which direction the 5 tracks is going in the toolbox (e.g. top to bottom or bottom to top).

When we have our scheduled breaks populate our playlist (on 19th + 39th minute each hour) sometimes presenters want to put a 'stop' just prior to the scheduled break commencing. Currently, the stop is ignored and the scheduled break is advancing anyway.

I know the 'stop' can be added to the queue, but it is added at the very end. Is there any way that the schedule can be adjusted, without going to Tools > Playback queue and adjusting it there?

Ideally, we'd like the 'stop' to be recognised and adhered to prior to the schedule commencing. Alternatively, is there a way we can adjust the queue on the fly within the playlist? For example, we can press 'Q' when highlighting 'stop' and that will add it to the end of the queue. Is there any other button combination to make that stop go to the start of the playback queue?

As we have our current structure come in on the 19th & 39th minute (to play on/close to the 20th & 40th minute), this gives our presenters up to a minute to schedule the stop appropriately. Ideally we'd like a simple key combination (e.g. Shift+Q) to add the stop (or whatever is highlighted) to the beginning of the playlist queue. Unless such a key combination already exists I'm not aware of.

Thank you!

You can remove the queue mark from the scheduled event: Alt+Q hot key, or right-click and select "Remove from playback queue". This will allow "stop"command to work.

Dmitry,

Since this beta is forced to have an identifier for the file types. I use the location of the files as an identification for some types of files so this is useless. It turned out that I identified a file type that was not. As a solution could put any string at random but perhaps can be improved from RadioBOSS :)

Thanks

Yes, I agree. The identifiers are required anyway, without it assignment of file type from Track Tool will not work, for example. Currently RadioBOSS creates automatic identified "TypeN" (where N is a number), I think we can extend this like adding special symbols, to make sure this string will not appear in regular files.

Only happens with the previous listener board (which is the same as always and no drivers are updated or changed).
When I double click on a song to make previous listening comes this error.
The other sound cards work correctly (I use 3 different outputs in RadioBOSS)

This problem-giving output is the default output of the system. But the strange thing is that with WInamp and Aimp they work well (If it were for a virus)

You use the Default option and switch the default device in the system?

Yes, there were some changes made. You should use a different identifier: teaser=

I've been doing tests with several plates and it's the same. Cue output is not working properly. When I assign these sound boards to other channels they work well
(no matter if the sound card is marked or not as default on the computer, the same happens)

At each start of the program, once I enter the configuration and accept (without having changed anything) it works correctly.

Exactly, it doesn't play. Every time I want to play a song appears the showmessage that I attached. But nothing in the log.

Error message like this can appear when you try to prelisten a track, is it the case? Or you see an error message when you play a track in the playlist?
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.6 [beta]
Post by: nelson c on May 24, 2017, 01:56:44 PM
Always appears, every time you restart the program. Not only in the playlist, also if I try to make a preview in the search engine happens the same.
In the meantime the main player is working properly.

So it's a problem only with prelisten, and it goes away when you open settings and click OK?

Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.6 [beta]
Post by: nelson c on May 28, 2017, 12:24:52 AM
The name is correct, no error there.

As an additional data I can say that when the program does not play (because it was not entered yet entered the configuration) when trying to play it freezes a second the whole program before the error appears. After I enter setup and accept (without touching anything) it plays perfectly, and never freezes.

Does 37 error mean exactly?

I found out what the problem is. It only occurs when the same output is also used for the assistant player. If I put the auxiliary player through the master output, everything works properly.

I wish they could block access to the applications of the program by unauthorized people, this is done with the user control, however with the program closed or before logging into the system, it is possible to run the applications like the library, AdSheduler and all of them . I had already raised this issue in version 5.5. It turns out that user locking only works after logging into the program. I believe the solution is to not allow anything to run without RadioBoss being open.

When the preview is done from a point that is suppressed on track number 1, you do not hear in any time track number 1.
Thank you for reporting a bug!

Does it always happen? A sound capture should help, as well as end jingle that you use.

It was improved in 5.6, now it uses the last logged in user credentials when modules are started directly from the folder - if you login as user with no Ads Scheduler rights, then it will not start if you try "AdsScheduler.exe" from the folder. We'll consider changing that, and reset access rights when RadioBOSS is closed so that no modules can be started.

It happens all the time, only sometimes it's more noticeable.
Here attached a demonstration, (which amplify the problem to make it more noticeable) and the original file.

The demonstration is processed, because I found it very difficult to take the main exit but in the console without processing you hear this same noise.

Attached some settings that I have.
The teaser mix points are that they come by default

The same character appeared here in Portuguese. I changed the program to another language and then returned the previous one and restarted the program, so it showed normal, the other way was to set the same language twice, it also worked that way. One detail is that when you change language not all menus are changing at the time, it is necessary to restart the program. This was not the case in version 5.5. Apparently has a problem!

You could use the english translation files as they are, copy them in a seperate folder and translate them.
But notice: There are strings - like in german (and maybe other) translation - that aren't implemented in the translation engine yet.
You could write Dmitriy an email with missing strings. Until they are added you should be patient. :)

There are strings - like in german (and maybe other) translation - that aren't implemented in the translation engine yet.
All translation files are synchronized automatically, so if the translation string is missed in one of the translations, it's missed in all of the translations.

Good evening, I can make a report with the screens where there is no translation, when possible make the translations available. As for the Portuguese of Brazil, there really is a lot of difference in the words used, as well as in the way of understanding and expressing.

The program is not showing the number of reproductions of the songs.
If you add those songs to the playlist, do you see the playcount number in the Track Information box under the playlist?

The playlist usually shows the number of plays

Thank you, reports indicate no problems. How often does it happen, and does it happen with different artists?

This is the first time I've seen this happen. But if it happened I guess there's some problem :)

Do you mean that playcount in the playlist is also missing sometimes?

This is the first time I've seen this happen. But if it happened I guess there's some problem
This is odd... Playlist Generator is tested in automated way to find such bugs, and currently there are no known issues with artists repeating. If it happened only once, it can be some, sort of glitch... I think we should wait and see when/if it happens again. In this case, please send the preset you use with repeated music files.

After checking the option worked. I thought it worked as the column marking the date of last playback, in this I never needed to check the option for additional information and it works normally. Thanks for the tip! :D

If the option is not checked, it will read the data from the music library file, but this data can be outdated.

Good morning Dmitry, I have some suggestions for the program, who knows it can be implemented in future versions:

01- Let the file explorer have the option of choosing a specific workbook instead of just showing the whole file tree of the computer.

02 - If it were possible in the Ads Sheduler , also program a list track, type list of stickers (track list) in the middle of the commercials and not only in the beginning and end of block. This could be done automatically by choosing a sticker every 1, 2, 3, or more commercial, so that the program takes into account also the end of block.

03 - To work in network, that is to say having program installed in another machine outside the main studio, to update the programming, since when we are live it is difficult to interrupt to program commercials and other things. Usually this is done by someone else and not by the sound engineer.

I want to state that RadioBoss has been an excellent tool, much better than a famous program used here in Brazil. I think we will definitely use it when this final version comes out, for now we are using the trial version.

Thank you very much in advance :D

This is planned for one of the nearest updates, should be in one of the RadioBOSS 5.6.x releases.

This could be done automatically by choosing a sticker every 1, 2, 3, or more commercial, so that the program takes into account also the end of block.
This one is also planned, but it's more likely to be added in version 5.7.

Changing commercials does not require you to stop RadioBOSS. Usually we advice using any remote control tool for Windows (e.g.  Windows Remote Desktop) to control RadioBOSS from another location.

I think I was not well understood, I said networking in the sense of being able to program the commercials and other things out of the studio more while there are people working on it. Using a remote access tool like team veiwer and others is possible, I have to interfere in the computer screen while there are people working there, the idea is to be able to update the programming from another computer in the network, which also has a copy Of RadioBoss and, update the studio programming from this computer outside the studio.

It could be as simple as putting the files on a network drive and from Radioboss allow you to use a network folder for the playlists of ADSScheduler.

This would also be very useful for example to handle several plants, with different advertising.
Each station has a different folder. Then from a single PC the publicity of all the transmitting plants is configured.
Bone after setting, you should drag the playlists and ads, to the synchronized folder of that station

Would it be possible to add other commands to the cart wall as it already works Time Announcement and teaser? I would like to use at least some of them, such as enabling and disabling the voice track. I know I can run on adding direct commands in the list as well as in event scheduler, I believe it could be useful to streamline at some point.

This is already possible and it doesn't require any additions to RadioBOSS. I was thinking of a more complex solution, where you can "link" two or more instances of RadioBOSS and export data between them, and also make it work not only for local network, but using internet as well.

I have used the system as follows

In our station we use sound processing through a computer and not a physical audio processor, through it we also send the radio signal to the internet.
So we did the following, taking advantage of this computer that processes the sound of the radio, I installed in it a copy of RadioBoss and we generate all advertising programming from this computer that saves the generated lists in a folder that is in network (\\ publicity) . I do ADS Sheduler automatic update schedule for 3 times a day.

On the live studio computer;

We set up the live studio ADS Sheduler the same folder on the network that we chose for the computer outside the studio (\\ publicity).
We do the same programming in ADS Sheduler by exactly scoring the same schedules and inserting in them at least one jingle to generate only the marked blocks that will have content.

We do this by doing the following

First step: we generate the programming grid in the studio live

Step 2: We generate the programming of blocks with all advertising by the computer outside the studio, that replaced the lists and that are in the folder of the network (\\ publicity) already with all the programming of publicity.

 Thus, all advertising can be changed at any time on the computer outside the studio, without having to wait to finish a program that is being done in the radio studio as well as access from anywhere remotely.

Note: On the out-of-studio computer we dialed in the ADS Scheduler to launch the stop list events, since it is only for updating the advertising blocks, and I also dialed RadioBoss to work without a sound card.

Hello,

Upgraded the studio PC's from 5.5.4.0 to 5.6.0.6 yesterday. Whenever our scheduler imports a schedule to run, the first spot in the schedule plays twice before it moves on to the next spot.

For example we have 5 files that get brought up to play at x:19. The first file will play. the little (1) indicator (playlist queue) will still appear next to the first file while it is playing. Once it has finished playing, the (1) disappears, however the first file replays again. It doesn't matter what the file is.

The way we upgraded from 5.5.4.0 to 5.6.0.6 was to just install over the existing installation. All the profiles etc. are otherwise the same, all the settings haven't been adjusted.

Is there anything we should have done differently to that? Or is this a bug?

From the final version of RB appeared the following problem: (in the beta did not occur)
I have events with "maximum waiting time in the list", action play.
(with the option to send to the server the name of the event, that is not if it has to see in something but by the doubts clarifies it).
The event begins normally without the maximum wait time being fulfilled, and then while the event is playing, when the maximum waiting time is reached, the playback of the current track is restarted and writes in the log that the maximum waiting time is fulfilled in the list. (Obviously once the event started it should turn off the maximum expear time in list)

It basically came up with the (1) next to the first file that was due to play, played it, the (1) disappears, then it continues on.

I manually re-created the profile again, using the same settings that were configured previously. This seems to have resolved the issue for us.

I have some doubts about Advance on each generation
Works when I use Ramdon selection?
After you get to the end of the list, start again from the beginning?
When a list is generated in track select "In order" that happens with the rating that is used as a priority?

My question comes from the following. I'm reading several articles about music programming, and to get a "freshness effect" on the music, other software do this:
-Shuffle all the playlist and insert it into a queue.
-Take the first 1000 tracks (for example) and generate the whole week playlist with those songs.
-Create the playlist applying priorities and filter only with those tracks.
-At the end of the week these tracks are inserted at the end of the queue, and work with the 1000 tracks that were now at the top.

This function gives me the feeling that has a similar idea.

So these songs are now left to "rest", they sounded songs that long ago did not sound (because they were at the end of the queue). This is achieved by this "musical freshness"

Yes, this was a bug introduced in the release version of RadioBOSS - please download the latest update (5.6.0.7) it will fix the problem.

It basically came up with the (1) next to the first file that was due to play, played it, the (1) disappears, then it continues on.
We tried reproducing it here, but to no avail... A screenshot should help here.

It's intended to be used with "In order" selection, so that it will take the next track out of a set - e.g. when it's some sort of lectures, or series. When the end of the list reached, it will start from the first track again.

music programming, and to get a "freshness effect" on the music, other software do this:
Playlist Generator in RadioBOSS allows increasing priority for tracks that weren't on air for some time. You can also lower priorities for tracks that were played recently. This, combined with repeat protection rules and filters should provide enough "freshness" :)

I seem to have an issue with "beds"
If I voicetrack, RB behaves exactly as expected.
If I add a "Bed" to the voicetrack and create a new filetype "BED", the bed continues to play after the voicetrack has ended.  I tried a shorter bed and it starts to play again over the next track.
Ensuring the "treat as voicetrack" tick box is unticked, the bed still continues to play. regardless of whether I have ticked the box or not.
Am I correct that the bed should cease as soon as the voicetrack has ended?

Yes, the bed should only play when the track is playing. Please provide more information on the setup - we'll try to reproduce it here.

I have Two file types  VT - and BEDS and this is reflected in the filetype  identifier VT & BEDS
Voicetracks work perfect - Starts and stops exactly where I expect it to.

The BEDS filetype is the same as VT filetype except "Treat as voice track" is unchecked (Expecting file to play as a jingle where the BED stops playing as soon as the voicetrack stops). 

The BEDS filetype behaves like a voice track but when the VT stops the Bed continues to play over the next track. This happens whatever the length of the bed.  A Short Bed will recycle itself and continue to play over the next track.

On the screenshot I don't see that anything's playing. The (1) is not a problem - scheduler sometimes adds the first track of the scheduled event to the playback queue to make sure that it will start when needed.

The track plays, the (1) remains on the track while it plays the first time. The second time the track plays, the (1) disappears, but it is the second time it plays. It's in the log files as a double played track.

This is how it appears in the CSV

40011;News Intro;;16/06/2017 2:00:52 PM;;8
40011;News Intro;;16/06/2017 2:00:57 PM;;8
;40016 - NRN News;;16/06/2017 2:01:02 PM;;5
40021;News Outro;;16/06/2017 2:04:47 PM;;5

The news was scheduled to appear at 1:59:00PM. The schedule only has 1 'News Intro' 1 'NRN News' and 1 'News Outro'. Radio Boss plays the Intro twice then continues on. The first time it plays the news intro the (1) remains in the player, next to the 'News Intro' mp3. The second time it plays, the (1) disappears. In the past typically the (1) is visible up until the mp3 file plays and the (1) disappears straight away. At the moment, the (1) remains there, plays once, then plays again, the (1) disappears, then it moves on to the next file. It's double playing the first track/mp3 that is scheduled. 

Downgrading to 5.5.4.0 gets rid of the issue. I tried creating a new profile but that didn't seem to resolve the issue.

In fact, it is a similar error, I think what was lacking was detail to understand the problem. I am using the latest version 5.6.0.7. It's no use creating a new profile, I've done all the tests here and it does not solve. This error happens whenever the list is stopped, if we launch a scheduled event regardless of the type, it repeats, if it is a multi-action event, the program repeats the first audio and then follows the normal with the rest. In fact, any event launched from the event scheduler will repeat when playing if the list is stopped and we give play manually. I would if possible send a video to Dmitry.

Please post a screenshot of an event that does this, and also screenshot of player window - before and after an event is started. This is required to reproduce the problem here.

Also, to clarify when you say "Manual start" - does it mean that the event is started manually (the Run Now button), or that track in the playlist is started manually (using the play button)?

Update the bug was reproduced when the scheduled track is started manually from the playlist. It does not remove the track from the queue, therefore track plays second time. This will be fixed soon.

Sometimes it works as you can see towards the end of the Video but most of the time it does not work but continues to play the bed even though the voice track has ended!

It's planned for RadioBOSS 5.6.1, in the second half of July I think.

As a workaround, you can use the Next track button instead of Play to start the track - this will remove the queue mark from the started track.

Thanks but that doesn't suit our setup. If you have an early release version could you please post it here? Otherwise we'll wait til later this month.

Could be that security settings at your email provider changed. I suggest contact them about it, or read their user manual about how 3rd party apps can use their SMTP server - usually you'll need to enable 3rd party app access, or create separate login/password.

A doubt: The new audio engine will improve the precision of sigue editor? It is much the difference between the previous listening and the mix that really is played. I guess for the disk access times. If you want to keep the rhythm for example so that the song that ends and begins to cross in a coup, is impossible are a few milliseconds of difference that make the adjustment with the editor is useless.

Provisionally add a very useful setting configuration:
For example if it is known to take 50 ms to start the track compensate that time in the actual mix.

This is because of low crossfade engine resolution, that allows crossfade times to drift +- 50 milliseconds (sometimes can be even more). The new audioengine will fix this, yes. But its development is a lot of work so I can't say when it's going to be finished.

For example if it is known to take 50 ms to start the track compensate that time in the actual mix.
The amount of error is not known, it can be different each time, even when the same tracks are played again.

Playlist Generator in RadioBOSS allows increasing priority for tracks that weren't on air for some time. You can also lower priorities for tracks that were played recently. This, combined with repeat protection rules and filters should provide enough "freshness" :)
I am working with this a couple of weeks ago, combined with increase or decrease the priority according to the rating of each song. In the first instance the result was great, but now it is occurring an "unwanted effect" that is not how to solve.
When playing a track, the priority is lowered by 40% for the next 7 days (to have that "freshness effect"). Playlists are set at approximately 10 thousand songs of various rating. The problem is that now there are fewer high priority tracks (Before high priority was just having high rating), and therefore more low priority tracks are played than before and this is not good.

I had clues that came out once every few months (songs that are not well known but help just the freshness) and now play more often. This at one point is contradictory because the basic idea of greater rotation of high priority tracks is fulfilled to perfection and I am very happy with the result. Only now there are too many low-rated tracks. I'm thinking momentarily filter the tracks for rating greater than "2"

Any idea or thought is welcome
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.6 [beta]
Post by: djsoft on July 19, 2017, 04:21:29 PM
I'd suggest lowering the period, make it 2-3 days instead of 7, this way you will greatly reduce the number of low-priority tracks because they played recently.

Another solution, in addition to (or instead of) reducing the number of days: create cascading rules, for instance:

rule 1 - decrease priority by 10 for tracks that were played 1 day ago
rule 2 - decrease priority by 10 for tracks that were played 3 days ago
rule 3 - decrease priority by 10 for tracks that were played 5 days ago
etc.

The rules stack up if the track falls for multiple rules.

Example. In this case, if a track was played just now, it falls under all rules (1, 2 and 3), so its priority will be decreased by 30. If a track was played 2 days ago, its priority will be decreased by 20 because of rules 2 and 3.

I'm thinking of a simple idea but I think so far no software programmer of music implements.
Increase the priority of the songs whose metadata this content in news of a user-specified RSS.

For example yesterday died the vocalist Linkin Park, the producers took advantage of this moment to launch a new video of the band.

Then the music of the stations would become more appropriate to the "moment we are living". For example, the day of the arrival of spring can be like a manual music, which plays songs that in its title say "Spring".

This kind of thing better be done manually by station manager, I think... Analyzing news and prioritizing songs by it is a difficult task to implement (also news can be positive or negative), and IMO it does not add much value to the software.

You can make the station sound different in some moments:
- Set up start and end dates for some songs using Track Tool. For instance, you can have music that plays only ion Christmas and other special periods of time.
- Set up different playlist generator templates to use in different parts of the year.

Maybe a list of external words is useful (like a txt)
With the words to raise or lower priority.
Then the director of the station can load the most important words and the software does automate the task.

Spotify is arming lists based on the weather forecast, it is known that cloudy or rainy days like more Melancolicas songs. These new ways of programming music make things more interesting, only you have to identify each song with a state of mind.

He does a great job. There is a greater rotation of songs and the higher rating tracks are played more often as I wanted.
The music is far from being random beyond the categories. The last reproduction and the rating make things very interesting.

It's a great idea to make a guide on cascading rules! :)

Yes, RadioBOSS 5.6.1 is my current installation.   
Observation - The delay of 6 - 8 seconds seems to occur when the teaser follows my "Jingle" file type.  It works as expected when it follows a music file type.

I have attached the teaser log and have two short video clips to demonstrate the issue.

Also, Ticking or Unticking the "Sidechain Compression" (Right Clicking on MIC Button) in Mic settings "Menu", seems to have no effect regardless of the "Voice Activation - sidechain compression" checkbox being selected. (Bug?).

Thank you. The log indeed indicates some delay - we'll try to find what's causing it. Preceding jingle files should not have any effect on it... it must be something else. I think this will be resolved in the upcoming 5.6.2 update.

Also, Ticking or Unticking the "Sidechain Compression" (Right Clicking on MIC Button) in Mic settings "Menu", seems to have no effect regardless of the "Voice Activation - sidechain compression" checkbox being selected. (Bug?).
The MIC has to be turned on for sidechain to work.

If you refer to Playlist->Extra->Copy to folder feature, it only throws an error when copying the file is not possible by some external reasons: the file is inaccessible, destination drive is full, network folder where you copy to is read on etc. You should find the cause why copy fails and it will work. What is the error message by the way, does it give any clues on why it fails?

RadioBOSS 5.7 will cache tags in the embedded database to eliminate the need to re-read the tags from the music files. So if your music files are located on the network, generating a playlist will be much easier.
Caching has some problems too, e.g. if files tags are modified frequently, then the cache will not work.

The big problem with this is the "last play". I use this field to set priorities for rotation. With that idea, this feature will not work. Or at least it will only be updated at a certain time. What is the problem with adding an external database? Or is there a lot of work behind this?

The problem is how to map a record in the database to a file that is located on a network. When used on a local computer, it simply maps using the full file name. But with network drives paths could be different: you can use the network folder directly, or map it using different drive letters. All this will result in different file names.

The idea of working in network, part of which always the location of the files is the same for the whole network. If not, nothing makes sense.
All the Automation software I know working network works this way, this is usually accompanied with a NAS where all the music is stored. But when using a networked folder the location has to be the same.
These software allow you to import the songs to the database from a terminal other than the air terminal, and then the broadcast pc already has those songs available in the library.
If the location is different, not even Playlist Generator can generate playlists.
Currently I work in this way: An auxiliary pc generates the lists, and then that the air pc loads and reproduces. If the location of the files were different nothing would work.

If that's the case, e.g. a NAS drive has the same drive letter on all the computers that work with it, then it will work fine with databases.
Support for remote databases (opposed to embedded SQLite) can be added in RadioBOSS 5.7. It could use such databases to store tag and additional information. This will greatly reduce the time needed to load track source to the playlist generator.

Yes, this will be sped up too. However, caching will not work properly if the files are modified somewhere else, outside of RadioBOSS, e.g. some 3rd party tag editors. Some tools to manage the cache will be added to handle such cases.

Post by: southernfm on October 26, 2017, 08:24:20 AM
Just FYI, with how we do music synchronisation at our station with Radio BOSS, we have a master computer which houses all the music files we want. The master computer is where we add any music or update the databases etc.

There are robocopy scripts which run continuously on the master computer. An example script is this:

robocopy "C:\Music" "\\STUDIOBLUE\Music" /E /TS /FP /XO /NP /PURGE /LOG:"C:\Scripts\Logs\STUDIOBLUE-Music.log" /Z /MON:1 /MOT:1 /R:10 /W:30 /MT:64

With the /MON and /MOT flags, it scans the C:\Music folder on the master computer every 1 minute, for any 1 file change. If detected, it does a push to the studios (the blue studio in the example above).

All three computers which have Radio BOSS in our station use "C:\RadioBOSS" as their primary folder which houses everything. This folder is actually a symbolic link which points 'C:\RadioBOSS' to the applicable radio boss folder on each PC (e.g. C:\Users\Radio\AppData\Roaming\djsoft.net\RadioBOSS_1584329963).

We then always reference "C:\RadioBOSS" and playlists, databases, music etc. all works properly after the synchronisation is completed. This negates the need for network hosted databases.

The above script only does music, but we have different scripts which sync databases, music, playlists, and the ad scheduler.

It is a bit of a complex setup which I custom made to suit our needs, but the reason we did it that way is because local playback is always preferred for us. Network issues can arise and affect playback with network hosted files.

Just thought I'd share our set up for anyone facing a similar issue of trying to keep multiple computers linked with RadioBOSS.

It's a great idea. :) Reading of last reproductions through the Log is not only slow but also more complicated. (You have to type the name of the song).
The idea is that it can be easily seen with just a few clicks. Last 5 reproductions for example can be a good idea. It would also be useful to be able to see the first reproduction, to know from which date a track is broadcast.

OK - calculations in filters will be added in one of the future updates.

The queue for RadioBOSS 5.7 is already full, so no promises here...

Dmitry, I would like to be able to set a background color for each item in Playlist gen pro (as in file types). It would be a great improvement for the easy identification of the types of files in the rotation

Still issues with teasers not firing on time or not at all! It seems to work fine when the playlist is not changed and just left to play :(

Good idea, noted for the future updates. Thank you!

Do you use the latest RadioBOSS 5.6.2? If so, are there any error messages in the log?
