Music Won’t Go In The Hour
If you’re pre-recording a show you may occasionally come across a really weird bug where music will sit outside an hour.
Not to worry, there’s an easy(ish) way to get around it, it just involves digging into menus a bit more than you may be used to.
First, delete the dodgy hour. Right click on the hour’s purple markers and press Delete. It will panic and say “Do you REALLY actually want to delete this? Please no”. Ignore its pleas and continue clicking Yes.
Next, go to Log, Add Hour To Log. Under there, click Add Hour from Carts
This will open the normal “Select Date” dialogue. Enter the hour at the start of your pre-record, select the right date and press ok. You will have to do this again later for the second hour.
Next, it will pop up with a really odd looking Audio Wall browser. This is more or less a list of what you see on the left hand monitor.
Double click “1”, or Top Of Show (in orange), to select it.
Great. Now, just type “1” into the next dialogue (not 10, otherwise it will insert 10 sweepers in a boring order), and press ok.
That’s it! In the log you should now have an hour starting with the TOP OF SHOW sweeper, just like when you normally plan a show. You will have to do it again to add your next hour of music, but just leave the other hours non-existent so that they can be filled later on with playlist music.
Be sure to change the hour mode to Auto, not LiveAssist or AutoFade. And don’t put stops (red squares) anywhere in your pre-rec.
