Track usage on Advertising and News

Post by hdradio » 25 Jul 2014 12:10

I have a campaign that has 4 different audio files.
I create a schedule for this campaign.
What if I want to play
1. All 4 files sequentially on each time. (I can reorder the list).
2. Same as 1 but in random.
3. One file at a time Random chosen. (I suppose this is "random" mode)
4. One file at a time. Next file the next time etc and loop to the first on last file. (is that sequential mode ?)

Each campaign (when assigned to an Advert Slot/Overlay) always picks exactly one single audio track from the list of available tracks (being assigned to the campaign).
As such by default 3. and 4. do apply; yes, that is the difference between Random and Sequential.
However, the sequential mode is not persistent; meaning its state is lost when the advert lib is being reloaded or ProppFrexx being restarted.
1. and 2. be achieved by downmixing your tracks to a single or multiple new audio files and then assign those files to your campaign.

Is there any possibility to add the persistent option to a future version ?

Yes, I'll take a look at it...
