I’m using V6.3 build 4499. Is it possible to simply switch layouts, please? I’m thinking of a different layout for normal recording/streaming and voice tracking, whilst retaining all the other settings and database.
do you want to change it within a session or do you prefer different mAirList sessions for the different productions?
Thanks for a quick reply. I would use different sessions.
I think the Multi Instance Manager could be helpful.
You can use it with only one instance too. Only the config files will be different; in your case the
I’ve looked at the tutorial, but it talks of creating a different rootfolder, so wouldn’t that give you different databases etc. Maybe there is a simple (like me) command line switch?
No, the database can remain the same (by the way, there is no need to install he database in the config folder - it can be stored in any folder on your HDD).
The Multi Instance Manager is a kind of GUI of a mAirList start command line.
Thanks, I’ll look in to that.
I’ve followed the MultiInstance manager and have it working.
I found when setting up the first instance, I used the default config template. It did not copy (there maybe others) the skin.ini file. My solution was to overwrite the first instance config folder with the default one; and that solves the issue.
The window title and Icon instructions don’t seem to work…but it’s not a big issue.
Edit. Names can be changed in MultiInstance manager
I have been able to get this working well, thanks. However, I’ve been trying to replicate this on a 14inch laptop, and have found the VT GUI to be a bit on the big side. Is there any ini file I can edit for the VT GUI please (yes, I have looked)? Or should this be a feature request?
Unfortunately, this is not possible.
Sorry to have no better news for you.
When u use the multi instance manager, why not create one instance for vt? you can create a complete new skin for that if you like. but indeed not for the database appllication.
For 2 radiostations wich broadcast from one location, I have created several skins for several studio’s
Studio 1 has a playout skin for the main radio station.
Studio 2 has a playout skin and a seperate voicetrack/ pre production skin for the main radiostation, but also a playout skin for the 2nd radiostation.
The 2nd radiostation isn’t live radio so no studio was neede. There is a seperate pc in the server room wich has a playout skin for this 2nd radio station.
Studio 2 normally shows the voicetrack/ pre production skin but we can switch to the playout skin for station 1 or 2.
you can do a lot using the multi instance manager (or the zipped installation option, wich also is possible if you don’t want the multi instance screen to switch.)
Thanks RuVo80 for the information. Yes, I agree the multi instance manager is very versatile, and I have indeed created a VT option.
