About Rivendell with Rivendell

In this episode I talk about the Rivendell Radio Automation software whilst using the same software to play music and sound. This show was recorded "as live" and unscripted. I need a bit more practise as I'd like to use a similar setup to do my own podcast show. Did a bit of normalising and amplifing as the levels weren't that great (another thing to practise)

[42:34] Note Odd thing happened, I thought the bed music had bypassed the recording when in fact it had just bypassed the mixer so it played full volume. Again, more practice needed.

Stuff I forgot to mention: Talking about multiple tracks in Carts, you can set each track to only play under certain conditions, such as time or day of the week. RDPanel is an appilcation which is a large version of the sound panel in RDAirplay, great to have on a second monitor. Logs are playlists which can be saved and loaded an can be generated just by playing music in Airplay or building them manually in RDLogedit or automatically with RDLogManager. Rivendell can manage more than one radio station if needed and share the same DB.
