Hi All,Note: Myriad v3.5.12 was previously available as a Beta release, but is now fully supported.
The Myriad v3.5.12 release is now available now from the Myriad v3.5 Support Pages - http://support.psquared.net/products/myriad/v3.5/
This is yet another considerable update to Myriad v3.5 and contains dozens of improvements and quite a few updates and fixes as well.
It has taken a lot longer to get v3.5.12 ready because we've also been working very hard on a set of great new tools that we are releasing today as well:
- Audiowall Podcast Creator
- Myriad now ships with the new "Podcast Creator v3.5" which allows you to easily right click on any cart on your Audiowall and 'Export to Podcast' which then automatically uploads the file to your website ready for download. This is installed when you install Myriad - you will find it under "P Squared Audiowall\Tools" on your Start Menu.
- Audiowall Processor
- Myriad now also ships with the new "Audiowall Processor v3.5" which allows you to perform several key batch processes on multiple carts automatically. The new Audiowall Processor can intelligently Converts Carts to Stereo/Mono, Normalise, TimeStretch and even convert to a different audio format (i.e. batch convert to WMA/mp3). This is also installed when you install Myriad - you will find it under "P Squared Audiowall\Tools" on your Start Menu. Because this tool is very powerful you should take a full backup of your Audio before running it on any carts.
- Audiowall Auto-Importer
- This fantastic new tool is a complete re-write of the original v2.6 Tool and allows you to monitor multiple folders on your computer/server for new Audio files. Whenever it sees a new file with a number in the filename it automatically imports that file into the specified cart, making sure it's the correct format and can even normalise during the import. It can also import Transport Files as well as monitoring an existing Audiowall to make sure that any new files dropped 'behind' Myriad are automatically imported and displayed on the Audiowall. It even emails you a notification whenever a new cart is imported, and if it fails to import it will email you to tell you why - ideal for sending News cuts to remote newsrooms or distributing links and songs to sister stations.Note: The Auto-Importer is available as a separate download as it requires it's own License Code. All Myriad v3 users who have purchased at least 1 license multipack are entitled to a free copy of Auto-Importer for use at their station. This offer is limited to 1 license per customer, additional licenses can be purchased by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
Other new features in Myriad include reading Meta data back from external Audio Editors after editing (i.e. Adobe Audition), new filters in Audio Reports, a massively improved Import Wizard that can now use a single file to list a number of audio files to import - such as an export report from other playout systems. It also adds Automatic soundcard detection for Echo Audio and Edirol cards under Windows 7
This release also contains a number of fixes including problems with opening multiple carts in SmoothEdit, Instant Cart Preferences and a few minor issues with Log playback.
We strongly recommend that you have a read of the Update Information for full details. There is currently no additional documentation for the Podcast Creator, Audiowall Processor and Auto-Importer. There is updated documentation for the Macro Language as well as Log Import Formats.
Important: Please note the following:
Windows 7 and Vista users may still need to manually install the CD ripping feature please see http://forum.psquared.net/Topic2669-22-1.aspx
