Next playlist

A new option on the playlist queue screen - Next playlist, would clear all remaining songs from the current playlist that is playing and start the next playlist in the queue. How I would use this is "Before" the dance starts we have background music playing, or sometimes when we have a pot luck dinn...

Start paused

A new option on the playlist queue to start the playlist but pause the first song. This give the DJ time to arrange the screens and have it sitting ready to play. I would prefer that this is also the default start method of the "startup file". This is especially useful, the startup file opens all th...

Re: Handle Long Dance names on the Marquee

Thanks for the reply,
We have thought of a projector, but have not purchased it because it does not work for practices.
In our ballroom practices, the hall lights are all on?
A projector is no good for ballroom practices?

Would be nice to have a font selection on the Dance name!!
Thanks

Handle Long Dance names on the Marquee

I use the Marquee all the time, it is a real useful feature. It is displayed on a separate monitor so all can see what dance is expected for the song being played. This is very important, because many songs can be used for more than one dance, but usually, the song suites one dance better than other...

Mass music editor

In the Music editor you can editor for only 1 song at a time and save it. Because the Music editor is accessed from the music manager with multiple songs selected you can use next/prev to edit each song separately one after the other. It would be a real handy (may a lot of work for you the author) t...

Use on Tablet

When ballroomDJ is used on a windows 8 tablet and the tablet screen is used to show the marquee as full screen it would be nice to have some changes. On the marquee screen the playback buttons would be nice to have. I think th minimum would be just one button: "Pause at end/Play" button. The pause a...

Re: Song Alias

Ah! - yes I see - profile! In fact it may be even simpler, just add everything in the song playback control section associated with a particular Keyword! You could then have a configuration screen for keywords. However, for backward compatibility this may be a problem and Profile may be easier for y...

Song Alias

BallroomDJ could allow a single song to have any number of "Alias" or "Shortcuts". A alias could look and be treated exactly the same as any other song. The difference between a "Song" and a "Alias" is simple, they both point to the same physical file, BUT - all ballroomDJ masterfile information can...

Export as m3u

On the manual playlist screen could you add a new export option? Export as m3u m3U is a simple text file used by many music players to start playing a list of music files. The m3u format is simply a list of the full paths of the songs. With this option, and some music players like MediaMonkey, the m...
