Hybrid Scheduling System

M1’s scheduling algorithm was designed for inter-active, fix-as-you go editing. The traditional music scheduling algorithm was designed for editing to be done after the software had filled in the entire day, flagging formatting and rules problems that need attention.

With just a few settings changes, you can use a hybrid scheduling routine that will have M1 making choices and over-riding minor rules problem slots when it has to, and stopping for inter-active edits when unbreakable rules problems are encountered. This system can retain M1’s solidly reliable song rotation and content control even as it reduces daily scheduling/editing time by more than half.

How can I schedule syndicated programs, like my weekly Oldies show? Typical syndicated show may have 5 segments an hour and maybe it is a 3 hour show; so, 15 segments. In M1, create one Category for it. Add 15 Cards, each with the approximate length of the segment, each with the specific Cart /… Continue Reading

It’s quite easy to install formatting and music flow rules that simply don’t jive with the content of the library.  This video demonstrates something I’ve often seen with new M1 start-ups.  M1 is designed to deliver the same number of spins for… Continue Reading

Tempo Rule Problem

M1 is so consistent with its song rotations because it doesn’t ever ignore any of your set Clock rules. Rather, it bird-dogs problems, pointing them out for you to make the important editing choices. As a Music 1 user, you know this is smooth and efficient.  But it is quite easy to set formatting rules that… Continue Reading

No Virus or Malware In M1, Ever

This week, Richie Gardiner a long time M1/Traffecta user in Dublin reported his AVG anti-virus app was giving him a warning, saying the m1 upgrade file was infected with something.  This is not so. He sent me a link to the AVG site where I learned the company had recently updated it’s software.  I began… Continue Reading
