Playing tracks alphabetically in Auto DJ
« on: December 08, 2014, 09:49:27 PM »
After trying many pieces of radio playout software like Jazler, Sam, Radio Boss at great expense, I was surprised and impressed with this program and will be using it for a new station in 2015. There is one thing that is niggling me though.
When I set the software for auto DJ, it always seems to play the tracks in alphabetical order even though I have set the parameters for random. Sam and Jazler never used to do this and played random tracks regardless of alphabetical order.
Am I doing something wrong?
I have read the tutorials and everything else is working properly. It's only a minor thing but as I know it's happening it won't be long before a listener picks up on it. Can anyone help at all please?

I am using version 1.7.4.0  :ok:

Hi, Andy and welcome to the community.

The tracks are not loaded strictly alphabetically but it might appear so because they are imported using alphabetical sorting used when reading files from file system.
I suggest you add couple of rotation items with "Least Recently Played" and see if that helps.
