Overview of Command Center Interface
Command Center was designed to provide a rich set of features and functionality in an easy-to-use interface. Here's a quick look at how it works.
In TuneTracker Command Center, every event in your program log is its own audio player, with its own Play button...letting you access and play audio tracks in any order without first having to move them into a contrived "playback queue."
Drag and Drop Program Log Editing
Even after a program log (playlist) is already being broadcast by Command Center, you can make quick, on-the-fly changes to it, adding in commercials, song requests and other items, rearranging items, even merging in extra logs, like a sports broadcast, all while the current program log is on the air and playing.
Every configurable button in Command Center is capable of at least a dozen different functions, including playing hot tracks, rotating audio cuts and scripts, switcher control, and more.
Scrolling Text Box
The text box in Command Center serves as a message center, performing a variety of helpful functions including system alerts, help messages, weather forecasts, and "QuickTips."
Auto-Displaying Live Announcer Scripts
Command Center can display scripts for the announcers to read, and assign scripts to buttons that can be selected at-will. But we have one more trick up our sleeve. Your program log itself can cause scripts to automatically appear in the text box at specific times of day when they should be read by announcers. See how we do it.
Expires and Last Played
"Last played" lets you know the last time an audio file was played, which can be really handy. "Expires" is an expiration date and time you can add to a file, to assure it doesn't play beyond that point in time, even if it's still in your program log.
Index Card Stacks
It's classic radio! In live DJ environments, there'd be a stack of index cards that announcers would flip through, reading one PSA or promo or image line each time, then moving it to the back of the stack, so all the desired copy would be equally rotated on the air. Same exact principle here, except that instead of flipping through cards, you just click a button to display the next script in "the stack."
Any configurable button in Command Center can be set up to rotate through a series of related cuts like PSAs, promos, sweepers, liners, etc. Each time the button is clicked, the next cut in the rotation is played. Watch how a "cart button" is set up.
