Is it possible to have a hotkey e.g. ‘F1’, which effectively does the following? - PLAYER 1-1 START/STOP PLAYER 1-2 START/STOP.
So essentially it will jump to the next item. Say if Player 1 was playing, and Player 2 is loaded, then pressing F1 will start 2, and stop 1. Of course, if Player 2 is playing, then the opposite happens.
You can connect multiple commands using a semicolon. Just type:
PLAYER 1-1 START/STOP;PLAYER 1-2 START/STOP
In v3.0.12 (and later), you can also use “PLAYLIST 1 NEXT” to start the next player and fade out the current one. That’s the same effect as clicking the “Next” button in the toolbar introduced in that version.
Ah right. I’m on V2 at the moment, so I guess the stop dead effect will have to be used!
Of course, I thought of a way around this, by having an “always fade out” option on the item. I only need this for news bed switching really which will have quick fades.
This script may be a good reference for you, I used it with a v2 setup.
[code]// mAirList Remote Start/Next Script
// by Charlie Davy - August 2009
// This script can be run when you press a remote-start button on your mixing console
// It either starts the player if in ASSIST or issues a NEXT command if in AUTO.
// You will need a separate script for each player - and change the GetPlayer(0) value
// ie: 0 is the first player, 1 is the second and so on
