You may have seen my previous post regarding the possibility of using my existing database of songs. I’ve got a second question which relates to how Libretime handles crossfading between songs in a playlist?
Having listened to how Libretime behaves between songs it has imported I’m still unclear exactly how it works and it seems inconsistent and messy - I understand this may be a fault of the import audio analysis.
Does the cue-out time have any impact and what is the behaviour when libretime reaches that point in time within a file? Does it start the next song or act as an end of file marker? I’ve seen the default fade in/fade out/ crossfade option within the settings. When would these settings take precedence?
My database of songs contains existing metadata including a fade point for each song. In systems I’ve used previously when playback gets to this point in time it would trigger the start the next song - this song would overlap the tail of the currently playing song. With correctly set markers this can result in a smooth consistent and professional sounding playlist.
I’m hoping that Libretime follows this same standard and that my fade point can be transferred to the cue-out field so it will trigger the next song in the same manner?
