Hello all, we're exceptionally pleased to say the Myriad v5.14 is available now from the beta section of the Myriad Playout Support page (see link below)
This is a big release and has a huge number of changes and improvements, and you can see a full list in the Version History which you can see by clicking the Info link next to each download.
The main headlines though:
* InstantTrack Preset Assignment Grid: You can now assign a different preset to each hour of the week, making it incredibly easy to schedule different types of music for different hours - for example, 9pm til midnight on a Friday might be a Rock show, so needs a different preset from the rest of the day.
* Log Editing: You now easily cut/copy/paste and swap items in the Scheduled Log.
* Log Export: You can now export an hour from the Scheduled Log to an Audacity or Adobe Audition session file (even including segue edits and volume envelope points) so you can then quickly mixdown your hour ready for podcast or other distribution.
* MetOffice weather and Highways England Traffic info is back!
* Accessibility: You can now turn on Large Font mode per-user to help those who would like the text to be clearer and easier to read.
* Stability: Previous versions of Myriad had an issue where multiple Library Searches could start to slow Myriad down and even make it unstable - this is now found and fixed!
* AutoImporter: You can now specify "tags" to be used in the Title/Artist/Description lines so that you can easily keep track of where/when an item was imported.
* New hardware actions and Macro Commands.
There are also dozens of other fixes and tweaks so have a read of the Version History as well to make sure you get the full info.
Of course it's still a Beta, so please use carefully, but our private testing users have had it on air in quite a few places already and reports so far are excellent!
