Multichannel option in MB STUDIO PRO plays the elements on different outputs of the sound card alternately or depends of the type of object to play.. For example: having activated outputs 1-2 and 3-4 and activating the Multichannel option in cyclic mode the first element plays on output 1-2 and the next on 3-4 then again 1-2 and so on automatically and without user control. This configuration is tipically used in radio studios on 2 sliders of the external hardware mixer: during a speech operation, the slider of the element that is aired is lowered while the slider of the next element stay up so when clicking NEXT, the next element is already full volume. If the option "Suspend Multichannel during AUTOMATIC" is enabled, the output alternates when in PLAY or AUTOPLAY mode, while in AUTOMATIC mode the output continue on the last used output.
the other mode "depends of the type of object" route the audio according to the content (song, commercial, etc etc)
MB STUDIO 184.108.40.206 can post the current song title on your Twitter account passing through the sam-song.info service. To activate this service you must register yourself at sam-song.info and enable it to access your twitter account.
The Folders list is very important for the proper functioning of MB STUDIO / MB SPOT. In this window you have to add all the folders containing audio files that MB STUDIO must play. When an audio file has to be played, MB STUDIO will search it through this list of folders and if it is not found an error message is displayed. MB STUDIO search on such files also in the first-level subfolders: adding the folder C:\ Songs, the search will include subfolders like as C:\Songs\Dance, C:\Songs\Rock, C:\Songs\Miscellaneous, etc etc. More deep subfolders are not considered (eg the subfolder C:\Songs\Dance\years80 will not be included in the search).
Starting from version 8.59 MB STUDIO supports MID-STREAM TAG: one or more commands to run in specified points of the current playing audio/video file.
Common use would be to display the songs titles during rebroadcasted shows or overlap jingles to the playing file (overlap only on MB STUDIO PRO).
To set the position where to insert audio or text, open the prelisten window of any file or song, go to MidStreamTag section and add or modify MidStreamTag.
MB STUDIO save MidStream Tags in a separate text file located in the same folder of the corresponding audio/video file with the same filename but different extension .txt. If you share the audio/video file to other MB STUDIO users don't forget to share also the .txt file
Ex: for the audio file c:\chart\chart dance saturday.mp3 the MidStreamTag file will be c:\chart\chart dance saturday.txt
When the audio/video file play on any MB STUDIO the MidStream Tag will be executed so when reaching the corripsondig position text/titles will be displayed. If the Option "Display Tag" is enabled, text will output also to webcast Metadata, RDS encoder and WebExport. If the text is a song title and the song is present in the song archive, MB STUDIO will mark teh song as brodcasted to avoid retransmission before the distance rules of Setup\Songs
