Title: Start song during current ID based on songs intro time.
Post by: jdown077 on July 06, 2020, 06:21:22 PM
I posted this in the support thread with no response so I'm assuming the feature does not exist.

Basically what I'm looking to do is have a song start during/after an ID based on its intro time. So for example, an ID starts to play prior to a song that has a 4 second intro. This means that the song would start with 4 seconds left in the ID. If the song intro is 10 seconds, it would start with 10 seconds left in the ID (or at the same time as the ID if the ID is less than 10 seconds in length). And finally, if the song has an intro of 0 or no intro set, the song would wait until the end fo the ID to start playing.

Hopefully what I'm looking for makes sense! It sounds super tight on-air and I find it's what sets some stations apart from others, especially Top 40/CHR.

Any help and insight is GREATLY appreciated!

I don't have a definitive answer, but some kind of query logic in the rotation might get you closer. Search for previous posts on that to explore possibilities.
