This manual has the purpose to explain everything to the user so as after the manual is over the user will be familiar with all the features and capabilities of the Jazler RadioStar2. The procedure is pretty easy and straightforward: Step 1.

In order for Jazler RadioStar2 to be working as it supposed to and without restrictions, the User Account Control UAC of Windows should be disabled and should be run with administrator rights.
The categories of the songs that your radio station will have. The auto programming of RadioStar2 is based on songs categories and is rather important to decide those categories. Also, we highly recommend having your audio files stored at certain folder and we have reached the conclusion that it is best for your ease and efficiency, the songs to be stored in folders based on its categories-genres.
For more information please read through the Songs Database chapter. The priorities of your breaks. You should decide what kind of spots your break will contain. For example, we want to have news section, weather section, commercial section, time announcement section, station id, start of commercials and end commercials. Based on which section we want to play first, we will have to fill the priorities section. The 1st priority will be played first and the th priority will be played last.
For each priority that is not used in a break has not been assigned as priority at any spot this priority will be omitted. For more information please refer to the Spots properties chapter. If spots have the same priority, the order of spots played is decided by random. More specifically, there are 7 different databases in order to import your audio. We will analyze each database in this chapter. A radio station usually needs lots of songs so as to offer variety. The first step that the user should do, is to create the categories based on which the songs are going to be imported.
Please press the song properties at the left of the screen. Jazler RadioStar 2 6 4. More specifically for each of Category 1, Category 2, Category 3, Vocal Presence and Music Properties you can rename, add new or delete or even select a desired color for the subcategories- contents. Many radio stations categorize their music based on the genre, the tempo, year of publishing etc. This step is crucial for your scheduling as the auto pilot schedule is based on the song categories.
For example when you open one record the appropriate window will appear. In the song analysis you can fill the information about the song. You can find many useful fields to be filled that will help you categorize the song.
Priorities: The priorities of the songs are the tool with which we define which songs will have priority and be selected more often by RadioStar2. For example if we set the priority of some songs priority 1 and the priority of all the other songs of the same category priority 5 then Jazler RadioStar2 will select the most songs from the priority 1 and few from priority 5. The lower the priority number, the more often the songs will be played. This option also applies to the xml files RadioStar2 is exporting and are used for the internet updating.
Can be selected on auto program: If this option is disabled then the track is frozen and it cannot be selected by the auto pilot. The user is able to select it, though. If for example we have the original song and also a remix of the song, then we would not like to be played one after another. This is where linking songs can be useful and the result would be, in simple words, RadioStar2 will treat both songs as the same.
When one is blocked the other one is also blocked for the same amount of time. Song Properties: Song properties are custom made properties of general use. For everything that does not already exist in the song analysis you can create it on your own by using the Song Properties. Timeslot blocking: This option is used when we want to block a certain song at certain hours of the day. For example if a song is not suitable for underaged children then it should be blocked for all hours from to You can also save a certain preset, for example the under-aged preset and can be quickly applied to any new song.
If you want to replace it with another, or you want RadioStar2 to find the mix times again you can use the Find button and select the desired audio file.
When the user uses the Find button to reselect the audio file, if auto cue is enabled, RadioStar2 will define the mix times again. Jazler RadioStar 2 8 The preview player contains the Start, Intro and Mix time, the seeker of the audio file, the volume at which this specific song will be played and the fade out options.
Regarding the mix times, Start and End mix times are automatically defined by RadioStar2 if auto cue is enabled. The intro mix time has to be set manually by the user. Intro mix time: This mix time defines the position at the audio file at which the intro of the song is finished. For example, the mixing between two songs will be executed from the start mix time till the intro mix time.
End mix time: This mix time is used to define when the song will start fading out in order to be mixed with the next song. By pressing the arrows you set the mix time back or forth with 0. The duration displayed at the bottom of the player is the actual duration of the song that will be played on air.
For example if we set start mix time 30 seconds then automatically the Duration will be shortened by 30 seconds. The user can also adjust the fade out options by choosing the number of seconds and the position at which the fade will occur start, middle, end. More specifically, they are described at the next chapters.
The artist analysis also contains many fields that can be filled about the artist and also, there are the linked artists. When you link artists between them, the result would be that RadioStar2 will treat them such they are the same artist. For example when one is blocked for 15 minutes the linked artist will also be blocked for 15 minutes. The only step that you will have to do is export the database in the correct format so as to be imported to the playlister software.
From the songs database tasks press the export to playlister and customize the format of the txt file that will be exported. You can also preview the changes and when you are ready press the start export button.
With this tool you can select the databases you would like to check whether they have audio files referenced and available. You can select the desired period for which you would like the statistics and then press calculate.
It is the main income and the way a Radio Station is sustained and kept alive and playing! As a Jazler RadioStar 2 10 result, the spots are a great part of the RadioStar2 with many options and features that will be analyzed in the next chapters. By default the values are a break at the top of the hour and at the half of the hour for each hour. Another very interesting feature of RadioStar2 is the spots priorities and it should be explained and programmed first, for your convenience, before we continue to the spots programming.
The next step is to navigate to the appropriate screen. Jazler RadioStar 2 11 As a result you will be transferred to the below image. Here the user can adjust the time of breaks based on his needs. With this we mean that when for example we have scheduled a break for , and the option is checked, RadioStar will interrupt anything that plays at this moment and start the break immediately. The default behavior of RadioStar without this option being checked is waiting for anything that plays to finish and then start the break even with some delay.
You can adjust how the break is partitioned. You can create for each element that the break will be consisted of, a corresponding priority. RadioStar, depending on the other options you have set, will play the elements at the order of priorities. This station ID priority has to be set as high as it gets and before the time announcement.
This way you ensure that the station ID will be broadcasted at the start of the break and as a result as close as to the top of the hour and of course within the time slot the laws oblige. If for example the priority for station id was set lower than time announcement, spots and almost every other element, the time of broadcast would be unpredicted and highly depending on the duration of the break. The most possible scenario would be the station Id to be broadcasted out of the allowed time slot.
Here you can create categories for the spots that will be created according to your needs. The image displays the default categories that are actually the most used ones by radio stations.
Jazler RadioStar 2 15 4. For example when we have a spot and we know that the agreement with the customer says the spot will play until a certain date we set as expire date the agreed one. This can be achieved by pressing the default buttons at the right or alternatively selecting a date from the calendar. For our example we will choose the one month default.
By default the RadioStar will prompt us to find the audio file that we want to import. Once we find it and press ok we will be transferred to the spot analysis for this spot. Alternatively we can skip the selection of audio file at this moment and press cancel. We can return later to import the audio file. In the above image we can see the spot analysis of the spot.
There are many fields that can and should be filled in order to get the most of the Spot management RadioStar can offer. We will refer to each field in order to make the spot analysis as understandable as it gets.
In our example the spot will be configured and be activated right away. Set: Active Client: Here we set the client.
