Various UAC optimizations
Regular dialog windows are now movable even if a user doesn't have the 'AllowMoveWindow' right.


Script-Line action 'LoadFolder' enhanced
So far the 'LoadFolder' script-line action was loading ALL audio files contained within the given folder and the 'Count' parameter was ignorred.
This has now been changed - so please check your scripts!
Now the 'Count' parameter is evaluated for the 'LoadFolder' script-line action and defines the maximum number of files to use from that folder!
This allows you to e.g. query the 2 newest files from a given folder and as such offers more flexibility.


Output-Mixer 'Source PLM Mode' added
A right-click on a peak level meter of a mixer-channel now lets you select a 'Source PLM Mode'.
The default is to show the Output level signal as today. The new modes allow you to also show the SND2 level or to automatically switch the mode depending if SND2 is active or not.


MIDI mapping enhanced by 'Zones', MIDI Mackie Control Universal support added
The GPIO MIDI mapping has been significantly enhanced.
Beside adding a new Data1 comparision operator a new 'zone' concept was added as well.
This allows you to either trigger a control-command as today or alternatively set an internal zone.
As such you might group your midi mappings into differnet zones.
In addition great effort was made to fully support the Mackie Control Universal protocol.
Please see the User Manaual Appendix for details about Mackie Control Universal support.


New control-command macros and functions added
Various new control-commands an macros as well as functions have been added.
Especially the new macro functions allow much greater flexibility when defining control-commands or when using macros within scripts.
Please see the User Manaual Appendix for details about the new control-commands, macros and functions.


Script-Line option 'ForceLibraryHistoryCheck' enhanced
If the "Global Song History" check can never be satisfied for a certain script-line, this so far returned the last found track anyway.
This was effectively changed with this version when using the 'ForceLibraryHistoryCheck' option. If set for a script-line, it will now skip this script-line (instead of taking the last found track).
However, this might lead to 'dead' Air segments, if none of the script-lines satisfy the history check and all lines are skipped!
Here is the effective descision table of the related flags:

Code: Select all

            SCRIPT-LINE OPTION                 ||               INTERNAL ACTION
-----------------------------------------------++---------------------------------------------
                    |                          ||   Perform     |    Global     |  Skip Line
SupressHistoryCheck | ForceLibraryHistoryCheck || Library Check | History Check | if not found
--------------------+--------------------------++---------------+---------------+-------------
      not set       |         not set          ||      yes      |      yes      |     no      
        set         |         not set          ||      no       |      no       |     no      
      not set       |           set            ||      yes      |      yes      |     yes     
        set         |           set            ||      yes      |      no       |     no      

Program Scheduler menu item 'Create Playlist Template...' added
So far the 'Playlist Template Wizard' could only be invoked from the 'New' menu in the main ribbon.
You might now also invoke the 'Playlist Template Wizard' directly from within the Program Scheduler.
Just make a right-click on an existing program entry and select it from the context-menu.


New Program overlay type 'Overlay End Time Fixed' added
A Program Scheduler entry might be defined as an overlay type (which is not to be mixed with an Overlay Scheduler entry!)
An overlayed program suspends a currently running program and resumes it once finished.
So far the 'Overlay End Time' type resumed a suspended program, once the defined program end time was reached in a soft manner - after the last track was fully played out. In the new version this type was now renamed to 'Overlay End Time Soft'.
A new type 'Overlay End Time Fixed' was added to let the suspended program resume exactly on time - any currently playing track of the overlayed program will be faded out and stopped at that time.


New 'Limit Segue' mixing settings added
The mixing per media type settings have been enhanced by new options, which allow you to take greater control about your automatic segues (see general settings, section 'Mixing/Fading' and click on the 'Mixing per Media Type...' button).

Limit Segue to: (Mixing Time)
If checked the mixing/segue time will be limited by the following options - else mixing is carried out independently per track.
Note: These limits are ONLY used during AutoPlay within the DJ Players of a Playlist and ONLY in case the previous track doesn't already contain a manual Next cue-point yet!
Max. Overlap dB: Limits the segue time for a previous track by calculating a position at the start of this track. The previous track is allowed to overlap up to this position.
Min. Segue: Defines a minimum allowed mixing duration. If the position calculated by the 'Max. Overlap' option results in a shorter segue, this minimum value is used instead.
Max. Segue: Defines a maximum allowed mixing duration. If the position calculated by the 'Max. Overlap' option results in a longer segue, this maximum value is used instead.
Use Ramp1 as max. Segue: If checked, the Ramp1 cue-point will in addition limit the max. mixing time.
In any case, the limit options will adjust the Next cue-point of the previous track once a track is loaded to a DJ Player!

Limit to Ramp1
If checked, the Ramp1 cue-point will limit the max. segue/mixing time.
Note: This limit applies even if the 'Limit Segue to' option is disabled.

Segue Length: (Minimum/Maximum)
Defines the minimum and maximum allowed segue/mixing duration in milliseconds.
Min. Segue: Defines a minimum allowed mixing duration. If the position calculated by the 'Limit Segue to' option results in a shorter segue, this minimum value is used instead.
Max. Segue: Defines a maximum allowed mixing duration. If the position calculated by the 'Limit Segue to' option results in a longer segue, this maximum value is used instead.
Note: These settings only apply, if the 'Limit Segue to' option is enabled

Force Adjust also for Tracks having a Next Cue-Point
The previous track's Next cue-point is ONLY adjusted in case it doesn't already contain a Next cue-points yet (this to prevent, that a manually defined Next cue-point is overwritten by the limit definition)!
If this option however is enabled, the previous track's Next cue-point is forced to be adjusted, even if already set!

Limit Next at AutoPlay only
If checked the Next Cue-Point will only be adjusted according to the Limit settings (see 'Mixing per Media Type...') AND if AutoPlay is active.
Deactivate this option, if you want to apply the Limit options (to adjust the Next cue-point) also in case AutoPlay is turned off.


New Find options added ('Immediate Search' and 'Check History')
Two new find options have been added:

a) 'Use Immediate Search' (see general settings, section 'More Stuff', group 'Find Window')
If checked, an immediate search is performed whenever you type in anything in the find expression field - else the search is only executed once you hit the enter key.
Note: An immediate search never searches within the Explorer Paths and only fires after you stopped typing for around 1.5 sec. You must at least typed in 2 characters before the immediate search is performed.

b) 'Check in Find Results' (see general settings, section 'Scripts/Scheduler' and click on the 'More Global History Options...' button)
Defines if the result entries of any search and find operation should be checked against the global song history.
If enabled any matching find result entries will be colorized.
Never: The find result entries are not checked against the global song history.
Trackname: The track name of the result entries will be checked against the global song history (no extended check is performed).
Full: Each result entry will be fully checked against the global song history. Caution: This setting might significantly slow down your search operation!


Default volume level for Overlay-Player added
Additional default volumes have been added in the general settings, section 'Player Settings' by clicking on the 'Initial Output Volume...' button.
E.g. for the Overlay and MODStream-Players.


Showing (offline) Streaming-Listener count
When you are showing the 'Listener' count for the streaming servers within your 'Network Streaming Monitor' it will now also show the listener count for servers not being connected/online (so far it only showed the listener count for connected/started servers).
Note, that in the offline mode (to either update the song titles or to get the listener stats) you MUST use the admin username/password (and not the source username/password)!

Hi Bernd.

It look's like it will only work if the server have the same ip-address and port.
I have a test server (SC1), same ip, same port
Here it work.
Then our official streamserver (SC2), there i send to a different port than the listeners connect.
Here it not work.

Please provide more details about your streaming server config settings within ProppFrexx.
Also see above, in offline mode you need to use the admin username/password.
The ip/port has nothing to do with that and needs to be configured anyhow correctly!

Output-Mixer 'Source PLM Mode'

Hi Bernd,

Thank you for adding this. I run in to 1 problem. When I switch on "SND2" with the fader 100% closed I donnot get a meter reading. If I move up the fader just enough not to be -999 it works perfect.

Hi Bernd,

I e-mailed you the setting of one of the channels in a print-screen.

I am currently testing the new midi commands and the levelmeters work, great!!
Currently I am using the example command from the manual: EXEC_SEND_MIDI_MCU level|0|${mixerlevel}

However (sorry) I do have the following to think about :)

- The meters always show the "pre fade" signal. Is it possible to have them switch like the normal meters?
- Is it possible to adjust the macro to "calibrate the meters"? (to make the first yellow led to match the 1 orange of PF)
- When the track plays all is good. When the track stops the meter "hangs" on its last position. (it does not fall back to 0)
