PlayoutONE - Disconnecting Music 1 To Work Remotely
This Post Applies Only to PlayoutONE and Sync-Harmony Automation Systems Of all the automation systems that Music 1 works with, our tightest integration is with PlayoutONE and its sibling Sync-Harmony. Any change to a song card in Music 1 is immediately reflected in PlayoutONE. If a new song is imported into PlayoutONE, it automatically imports onto a Song Card in Music 1. In order to do this, the Music 1 and PlayoutONE databases need to be on the same computer or network. If the (station).m1 library file is moved to a different computer, when Music 1 is first started it will begin searching for the PlayoutONE data. In a few seconds, a message will appear saying it is unable to locate the PlayoutONE database. You may then click the cancel button and Music 1 will not ask for it again. The finished playlist files that are run and saved on the second computer are then moved to the folders on the automation system computer.
If your station is using the PlayoutONE or Sync-Harmony automation system, for more info about the ins and outs of this, contact Steve or Neil at the Music 1 offices in the US, or Dave at the PlayoutONE office in the UK.
