By "different ads" we mean an audio file that replaces the standard one on a specific day or period, for example on Christmas day or in the week of Christmas we can broadcast an advertising different from the standard one. To add different ads we don't even have to use MB SPOT, it is sufficient that the standard advertising is normally programmed in MB SPOT as explained here: MB SPOT - ADD A CUSTOMER AND PLAN A SPOT and that the different advertising are stored in the same folder as the main advertising and that they are named with a certain method.
ONLY MB STUDIO PRO supports differentiated ads
To automatically broadcast a different advertising, it is sufficient to store in the same folder as the standard advertising, an audio file with the same name followed by a double cross ++ and followed by one or more of these temporal values:
date of broadcast day in ddmmyy format (EX: Maurizio++251222.mp3 will only air on December 25, 2022)
name of the day of the week or several days of the week in ddd format (first three letters of the day sun++mon++tue++wed++thu++fri++sat) (Ex: Maurizio++sat.mp3 will be broadcasted every Saturday)
start date++end date in the format ddmmyy for example 030922++280922 (ex: Maurizio++030922++280922.mp3 will be broadcast from 2 to 28 September 2022)
It must also have the same extension as the main file (e.g. .mp3)
From the MBStudio \ License menu it is possible to enable or disable the automatic installation of updates.
When a new update is available MB STUDIO downloads and installs it automatically between 3 am and 5 am (MB STUDIO must therefore be running at that time). The installation involves a brief interruption of the broadcast and takes place at the end of the song currently on the air (to avoid an abrupt musical cut that would be unpleasant to the listener).
If, on the other hand, the version is NoLicense MB STUDIO downloads the update but installs it only at the next restart of MB STUDIO or Windows.
Only minor updates are installed by this method, for example all updates from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 are installed automatically, but when a major version change occurs (for example from 8.70 to 8.71) it is still necessary to proceed with the manual installation (due to changes in the database that cannot be done automatically)
