Is there a program or a way to translate mp3 from another radio automation ( not MB Studio ) to MB Studio and get all information like Intro and refrain points? Also the other way back to the other automation?
We receive sometimes mp3 music from another station. This would save much time for us.

Problem is a standard, so I am not aware of any programs that would allow that. Now if you bought a song package it usually comes with a CSV or tab delimited file for all the songs that some broadcast packages or music scheduling software allows you to import.
This is a file that was created by the distributor of the music package and the scheduling software is usually more than the cost of MB Studio.

There were several standards developed like Cart Chunk Data for radio automation that used the tag data, but those are special tag fields for that or a field that is comma delimited to be read by automation if I recall correctly.

You say other radio automation? Every automation system uses its own database scheme for intro, outro, refrain, etc.. They are stored as MDB, DAT, etc.. It is not stored in the MP3 tags that I know of other than ones that utilized Cart Chunk Data and is Wave format.

I have exported song data from automation to a CVS file and imported that into a spreadsheet and used that data to help enter information into new automation system. That's the only method I know of, but that's just my thoughts.

There are simply too many variables and no standard that I am aware of to do such a task.
