Next playlist

Post by vbds » Fri Sep 26, 2014 7:40 pm

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 dinner first we play "supper" music first.
So I would queue up a "Easy listen" playlist that has a lot of songs in it.
Then I queue up the dance playlist (manual or otherwise)

Then at some point in the night when the dance is about to start , I click "Next Playlist". This would:
1-clear all remaining songs from the current playlist that is playing
2-fade at end of current song
3-start the next playlist in the queue.
(stop if empty queue- Then DJ can add a playlist and start the queue again )

I'm sure there are other times that this will be useful as well.

Yes, this is also useful when teaching.
It would make it easy to switch from an all waltz playlist to all foxtrot.

This will be in version 1.26 as "Remove & Clear".
