Myriad: Setting Players to Preview Mode

Using Myriad Playout v4 I found myself wanting to pre-fade the next song without it affecting the backtiming or dashboard for what was playing on air at the time. I wanted to use the fader I was going to be eventually playing the item on air from. In order to achieve this I have used the Myriad Command language to force players into and out of Preview Mode.

Below is a pdf of how I did this. Enjoy

Myriad Tutorials online

The project I have been working on over the last few months with my friends at Psquared is now online.

These are tutorial ‘how-to’ videos on their application. You can find them here and they will also be uploaded in time to my webpage here.

From the start of 2010 I hope to begin tutorials on Autotrack, their music scheduling system.

Hope you find them useful for your station.
