End, Sustain not showing

By paulmoore - Tuesday, January 18, 2011 4:35:51 PM

These are all the songs we are editing and yes they appear in myriads database view, I have clicked re-read and the data now appears, eg ends, sustain, looks like i will have to reread every track...... good job we only have 25,000 done so far. !

definely a bug somewhere, surely if these carts are brand new and are being imported into autotrak it should pick up the end info.

Its a gentle reminder then that when you import a new cart double check all info is present, which now means we must tick the box review each cart, which in turn means we can now only import 50 carts at once or crash hits !
Unless this has been fixed? autotrak used to crash if you imported more than 50 at once, although it's not very oftne i import that many at once now we have the database in place.

thanks for all your help ;-)

Well as hinted at, you can use the "Myriad Audiowall Update Utility" - BUT IT IS DANGEROUS.

You can import all the information from the audiowall, back into Autotrack, this can be limited down to just the timing and endtype.

Maybe you could introduce a to and from cart number on this audiowall update ?
then we could choose a few or all carts to be updated, doing the whole wall wrong would be unbearable !

Ive decided to reread every cart anyway, double checking the year entry and hook and in out, 1,000 done today, 24,000 to go....
a slow but worthwhile task i think as once it's done I'll have a superb database.

and a lesson is learnt by all, BEFORE importing any tracks always enter ALL the information first.

a range of carts on that tool is a great idea!

I'll put it into the dev team for consideration for the next round of Autotrack Updates.

Thanks, also while we are on the topic of future things, I always change the order of the cart display when searching and resize the columns, Title, Artist,End type, length.
I have to do this eveytime, can we not get this to remember ?

Also 1 really annoying thing, custom colours,  I save the colour then eveytime we shut down the custom colour dissappears,  I have notes of my color numbers, but its just and annoying niggle;-)

All our carts have been marked, end fade sustain etc, but only a small percentage of them actually show up in the database,
do I have to run something to update this info ?

OR is there a bug ?
using latest full release of myriad and autotrak.
