I'm attempting to do a promo for my station, so that no song repeats from 9 am to 9 pm. I know I can create an ordered playlist for that, but to do so, I am assuming I would have to manually rearrange the order of the songs each day, so the songs would not play in the same order as the previous day. Is there any way I can set up a playlist to play songs randomly where the same song does not repeat in a 12 hr period?
This is accomplished using separation rules. Settings -> Separation Rules. We now support (as of this writing) up to 48 hours.
The way the separation rules work are that if you have Artist separation set to 3 hours, and title separation set to 3 hours, the same track from the same artist won't play within 3 hours.
Say you have an artist separation set to 4 hours, but the title separation set to 2 hours, that means that another track from another artist with the same track title can play after the 2 hour time frame, and any track from the original artist can't play for 4 hours.
Does this help explain how it works with LiveWebDJ?
Thanks, yes those are clear. I had wanted something like artist and title separation both around 45 minutes, but didn't want an individual track to repeat in something like 12 hours.
