If you wish to delete an existing Box, simply

  • open it and click on the “Delete Box” button,

2.4.2 Unlinking audio tracks of a Box

If you don’t want to include specific tracks in your Box, you can unlink one sound at a time by clicking on the icon "Unlink" the soundtrack selected:

Attachment:

Or you can unlink multiple soundtracks simultaneously by selecting the desired soundtracks and clicking on the button "Unlink” on the page top.

Attachment:
2.4.2 Unlinking audio tracks of a Box.png

As obvious from the term, this is only to exclude a soundtrack from a box. The soundtrack will remain in all other Boxes, as well as on the list of imported soundtracks -if applicable-
detailed in “My Files”.

To delete a soundtrack permanently from your radio, go to the section 6 My Files.

2.4.3 Transferring soundtracks from a Box to another Box

You can transfer one or more soundtracks from a Box to another one, in the same audio category -e.g. from a Music Box A to a Music Box B, but not from a Music Box to a Voice Track Box. You can also copy soundtracks from different Audio Boxes to a Playlist, except to a Podcast.

To do so, open a Box, select the track(s) you want to copy or transfer and drag and drop them to the selected Box on the left column. The name of the target Box will be highlighted in blue.

The following message will appear at the bottom, on the right of the Planner:

Attachment:
2.4.3 Transferring soundtracks from a Box to another Box.png
2.4.3 Transferring soundtracks from a Box to another Box.png [ 2.86 KiB | Viewed 13048 times ]

If you click on the message “Unlink From Source", you will indicate that you want to erase the soundtracks from the source Box.
In case you want to keep the soundtracks both on the source and target Boxes, do not click on the message and it will automatically disappear after a few seconds.


EXCEPTION: It is possible to transfer a soundtrack from any audio category, except from a Podcast on a Playlist Box.

2.5.1 Importing soundtracks from your hard drive



! IMPORTANT!

Whatever the type of music or sound item that you import into the Planner, the format supported is .MP3 - 128 kbps - 44.1kHz - Stereo.
ID3 tags are supported.

The maximum duration of a soundtrack is limited to 15 minutes.




Click on the name of a box that you have created and into which you want to import your own audio files, then click the "Upload" button on the page top.

Attachment:

Using the button "Add Files", select the files to import on your hard drive. You can import several files at a time.

Once your selection is complete, click "Start upload". A progress bar will show the evolution of the transfer to the platform. The upload speed depends on your Internet connection.

When progress reaches 100% for all files imported, wait a few seconds to make sure that the transfer was successful.

The page displays a green message with the list of imported songs on the platform.

A red message indicates an error when uploading that requires your attention. You will have to repeat the procedure taking into account the error displayed.

Below you will see the successful transfer page:

NOTE 1: The number of imported soundtracks is limited – the same for all categories:

  • 1,000 soundtracks for a radio which has been active for less than 3 months (first planning generated )
  • 3,000 soundtracks for a radio (first planning generated ) which has been active for more than 3 months



NOTE 2: These soundtracks are grouped in the "My Files" tab on the Planner, which will be discussed in more detail in Chapter 6 in this document.

2.5.2 Editing and validating imported soundtracks

If you have ID3 tags, some of these fields will already be filled in. If not, you will have to at least specify the name of the artist and the title of the track.

An invalid file will be flagged by a message at the bottom of your Radio Manager (1) page and by an icon to the left of the soundtrack title (2). (see below)

Attachment:
a.png

The icon on the left of artist name (3) indicates that the soundtrack is not available for inclusion into your radio program. (see below)

Attachment:
b.png

This icon may remain for a while even after editing and validating your soundtrack, this is the time required for servers to process the file. This time may vary depending on the number of soundtracks being uploaded on the platform.

Attachment:
2.5.2 Editing and validating imported soundtracks.png

By clicking "View Files" in the window (1), you will directly access to all non-validated files.

To edit a file, select it and click on the icon "Edit" that will automatically appear.

(1)
    You can import the cover of the edited title from your hard drive

(2)
    The fields "Artist" and "Title" are mandatory

(3)
    The other fields may help you either to access your tracks with more ease using the advanced search function (by using tag, style, year) or to enable your Planner to create your
    program coherently (based on tempo, for example).
    Some of these fields are only available for Music or Jingle files

Don’t forget to click “Save” after editing the soundtrack data.

Remember the icon on the left of artist name indicates that the soundtrack is not available for inclusion into your radio program. You can use it as soon as the icon has disappeared.

NOTE 1: On top we present the soundtrack edit page in the Music category.
These fields may differ depending on the Audio category into which you import the soundtrack. We will review this information when necessary during the different chapters.

2.5.3 Configuring the mix pointers



! IMPORTANT !
This option only works with the browsers Chrome and Microsoft Edge



The mix pointers are indicators that the Planner uses to determine how the track will link to the previous song and the next song in the reading list.

To access them, select a soundtrack and click on the mix pointers edit icon

Attachment:
2.5.3 Configuring the mix pointers.png
2.5.3 Configuring the mix pointers.png [ 9.47 KiB | Viewed 13047 times ]

This takes you to a page that allows you to configure the following mix pointers:


  • Fade In: This allows you to reduce the volume of the track at the start and to introduce the next song more smoothly.
  • Intro: This determines the point at which track 1 will have reached its nominal volume, considering it was at zero (0) dB at the Fade In point.
  • [/hr]Mix: Determines the moment at which track 2 begins to play.
  • [/hr]Extro: This determines the point at which track 1 will start to lower its nominal volume, considering it will arrive at zero (0) dB at the extro point.
  • Fade Out: This allows you to reduce the volume of the track at the end to link it with the jingle or the next sound or music track.

NB: The numbers shown in brackets are the keyboard shortcuts.

Attachment:
2.5.3 Configuring the mix pointers - 2.png
2.5.3 Configuring the mix pointers - 2.png [ 51.48 KiB | Viewed 13047 times ]

Each of these four values is represented during the track by a cursor that matches its colour. You can manually move the cursors using the mouse.
You will see the values in the colour field change automatically. You can also choose to manually enter numerical values in the colour fields.

The ‘Time elapsed’ counter tells you the exact current position of the reading of the track, expressed in minutes, seconds and thousandths of seconds.

Below you will find a more schematical explanation:

1 – Fade In
2 – Intro
3 – Extro
4 – Fade Out
5 – Mix

NOTE: It is not possible to edit the mix pointers of a soundtrack originated in the Radionomy database.

2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints

You can edit a Box by clicking the "Edit" button above the track list.

Attachment:
2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints.png
2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints.png [ 3.9 KiB | Viewed 13047 times ]

A fastest way to access the constraint editing page is to hover your mouse over the name of a box in the left column of the Planner "Audio" page and click on the blue icon.

Attachment:
2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints - 2.png
2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints - 2.png [ 7.5 KiB | Viewed 13047 times ]

This will take you to the Box edit page

Attachment:
2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints - 3.png
2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints - 3.png [ 71.12 KiB | Viewed 13047 times ]

Below you will find the details for the various functions available on this page:

Changing the Box name

You can easily change the name of a box by simply typing the new name in the first field on the top of the page and then clicking "Save"

Defining an Intro/Extro Box

You can determine a Jingle or Voice Track Box, or even a particular item if one of these boxes, which will be played before or after a title of your Box, every time an item is broadcasted.

If you don’t specify the item of the Intro/Extro Box to be broadcasted, then the generator will randomly pick one from the selected Box.

Don’t forget to click “Save” after completing the specification.

If the edited Box title should not have been broadcasted –e.g. to make up for delays in the planning due to advertisements or podcasts–, then this Intro or Extro will no longer be broadcasted.

Attachment:
2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints - 4.png
2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints - 4.png [ 10.47 KiB | Viewed 13047 times ]

In the image above, we defined an Intro "Jingles Music" Box and a specific soundtrack from this Box, "Radionomy - Jingle 5". This particular jingle will always be played before broadcasting a Box title. However, if no Extro has been specified, the sequence after the Box title will be the title normally scheduled to follow in the planning set.

Repetition constraints

Repetition constraints define the period –in minutes– during which an artist or a particular title will not be broadcasted again after having been scheduled for the first playback.

Attachment:
2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints - 5.png
2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints - 5.png [ 11.92 KiB | Viewed 13047 times ]

By default, the Planner offers “60-60 constraints”, i.e. the same piece will not be selected by the generator within 60 minutes after its original programming and the same will apply for the artist.

You can keep these constraints depending on the number of different titles and artists included in your box, or change them accordingly.

Don’t forget to click “Save” before exiting the page.


Example :
If you set limits of 360 (minutes) on an artist A in a box X, it means that if the generator schedules this artist from this box X in the planning, you do not allow it to schedule the same artist again in the next 360 minutes, even if the artist is in another box and / or other clock.

Think about it if one artist is present in different boxes as a constraint applied to an artist will impact the choice of the generator throughout the set period.

It is exactly the same for the titles constraints.

ATTENTION : Due to international broadcasting rules imposed on webradios, "Music", "Playlist" and "Fillers" boxes have a minimum repetition constraint on the artist of 45 minutes.



Broadcasting constraints

Broadcasting constraints allow you to cancel the playback of a Smart Box on specific days of the week or at certain hours of the day.

Attachment:
2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints - 6.png
2.6.1 Editing Box Constraints - 6.png [ 37.51 KiB | Viewed 13047 times ]

By default, broadcast constraints enable Box playback every day of the week and at all hours of the day.

You can cancel the broadcasting of a Box in specific periods by unchecking the boxes of your choice.

In practice, however, it is much easier to organize your Clocks and your Day Templates for a Box not be broadcasted at specific times or days. On the other hand, this option is more suitable for a particular Box item.

Don’t forget to click “Save” before exiting the page.

Resetting Box Titles Constraints

By ticking the box "Reset Box Title Constraints" at the bottom of the constraint edit page and then clicking on "Save" you will change the particular constraints applied to some Box titles to the default values.
