After some more testing of the software i found that we can not control the volume in the Playlist, Monitor or Prelisten if we have the data base editor open. I was going to test other functions however the software just crashed. I did manage to push send on the error report

Yes, you have the database in the main window to build playlists. It does not make much sense to editor the database while you are on air. However this should be possible from another machine over the network.

Mark,

In the Sound Processor, I've saved a few presets, and when I load them they haven't been saved. Is there a particular way to save these as presets? OR, is this a future function?
Should we start with the individual elements in Default?
The more I play, the more I learn. Which means more questions. :)

Added: When I updated to 51, should I also have updated the Sound Processor? Would that make a difference in saving presets?

Good time...

For begin - I'm sorry for my English... I'm only leart language..
And many questions, i think, was discussed here, but a don't can read all topics((( it's very hardly for me now...

Also a wanna say "Thank" developers.. It's really good news... New version of DRS)))

I was began use this air automation with 2006 year.. when come on my first job))) and since - its better automation software for me... Maybe it factor did DRS2006 lovely programm))
And three yars 24/7/365 - DRS stable work - it's great...

Ok.. now about empressions of V4..
I tested only Demo version.. and don't know about realisation differeте functions in full wersion... and if ask silly questions - sorry...
I'm very sad about missed test period)))
sure, in this situation issues was less)))

- Interface:
New and interested.. When start V4 - understand - it's new roduct with classic DRS style and differents skin - nice... Some unaccustomed.. but 2-5 minutes and all understand)))
Great, what playing song can't rewind and play other song from playlist double mouses's clik.
But replase song with mouse - again unaccustomed.. but this new version and new type added and removed tracks from playlist...

Glad that sound stayed good as was))

I'm upset lack DRS Clock.. (as V2.x) but not critical... Exe file nice work without DRS setup))

- Database:
Great what V4 nice work and with FLAC files (read tags.. V2 not read tags from FLAC files)...
As i understand DRS2006 V4 also save information about files in special file... (Song Index.dat in work base folder)... and not record fade's information in audio file...
And question - earlier file path record with working folder...
for example at air PC i have work folder D:/Music Base/ and this way was pointed in Databasу Connector... All Informations record oin work files in DigatalData folder... And on other PC (editor or montage) i can copy this folder and work with DRS's base but patch the files (with audio files) was other (for example E:/RADIO AUDIO/Music Base or etc...) And all was work...
In new base i saw what programm show all patch (example: D:/Music Base/Artist Folder/Song.MP3)... If I'll use V4 I should have on all PC same file patch and folder?

About remove created categories in database i saw was write in other post. You also write about fixed this bug... but a don't found this function (V1.0.100.51)

In V2.x PRO Package was many great application - Playlist Editor, Autoplay Manager, On Air Analyzer... In full version of V4 - this application also include???
For air programming it's essential functions (also start miniplaylists in current time... programming each hours to a minute (wait end of track or cut him))...

A understand what tester know this informations... But can we see screenshots of this functions??? Or is it only in development???

I hope that a can correct wrote my thinks in you answer me....

Best regards, Vlad...

Hi,

I've been using DRS2006 with my students in a primary school setting since 2009 and have been very happy with the program. When on-air, it has been very useful to have a DJ Break as an entry in the playlist, but I can't see that it is an option in v4. I could possibly create a silent audio file and add it to the playlist, but it's not the most elegant solution. Any suggestions? What happens in a more professional setup - do the DJs just know where to insert a break and click on stop?

Regards,
Andy

Hi Andy,

you are right. We will add this. A work around at the moment is to make a silent file and a category "DJ Breaks" with a signal color (red). The files could also have different durations.

Mark,

Thanks for updating V.4! The auto update is a great feature. Also, thanks for fixing the 'Save' function in the Sound Processor. Works great! :D

Mark,

When using shuffle to try to build a playlist, it only fills the On Air playlist area. There are perhaps 10 songs or elements. The preview works great, but with jingles, etc. you get around a half an hour at a time.
Is there a way now, or will there be a way to build an hour or more?
