On air slots

Scroll Prev Top Next More

The on air slots are six, placed in the Live section and reserved to the first 6 tracks to be aired. Other next tracks will be displayed in the Playlist On Air section.

In particular, the first on air slot is reserved for the track currently on air, whose information during playback will be showed on the main display.

 

At the the end of the track playback, the contents of all slots will be moved one position up and the next track will be aired.

Slots are not only reserved to tracks but also other items such as sequences or web streams.

If a item is dragged in one already full slot, this will not replace the content of the slot but will be inserted between the items already queued. The item will be inserted above or below the slot, depending on the position of the green line.
