New Automated Feed
« on: August 06, 2007, 01:42:31 am »
Hi all,

Just wanted to send a quick note out to let you all know that we’ve pretty
much finished rebuilding the station’s automated feed.  All that’s left is
to let the system run for awhile and make any tweaks that may be necessary.
It should sound a lot nicer now as we have implemented features such as
crossfading between non related tracks, adjusted all content to have the
same volume level plus we’ve replaced all the music.  You’ll now experience
full proggy goodness as I have removed a lot of the stuff that was on the
outer fringes of the genre.  I’ve also taken out all the old promos and left
only station IDs.  Speaking of station IDs, most station IDs you hear from
artists should now be followed by their own music.  You’ll also hear more
suites as we’ve designed a system where we can have various tracks of our
choosing play together with a gapless output.  To address some of the
problems we experienced with the old feed playing similar artists in a row,
we’ve added some logic into the script to prevent this from happening.  And,
perhaps most importantly to some, there are now only 20 Genesis songs out of
the 432 total tracks currently in the feed (blasphemy!!!!!).  I will be
adding more content every so often as new material becomes available, but I
did want to let everyone know that these upgrades have been made.  As this
is a new system and completely built from scratch by our very talented
server administrator there may still be some glitches that have yet to rear
their head so if you do hear anything odd please let me know privately.

Cheers and happy listening!

Shawn the tech guy

Hey Shawn, how've you been.

I only started listening to the automated feed recently, and I thought wow that's pretty good with the crossfading, music related station ID's and all that. So I guess I caught on at the right moment  ;D

I hope the server admin had fun programming this stuff, sounds pretty cool to me. Well done!

Cheers,

JP
