Importing Library Data
Before you can do anything with M1, you first have to get your song library data imported. Here's a collection of tutorials about the various
ways to do it.
Playlist and Log Folders
you save a new schedule, M1 makes two files; one for its own uses and another for your automation/playout system. That one is the playlist file. You tell M1 how to name(date) it and where to
save it on your computer. (3:13)
Importing Library Data Directly from Mp3 Tags
1 doesn't necessarily have to be installed on the same computer with your playout/automation system, nor does it have to have access to the audio files broadcast by your station. But if you do have M1 installed on the machine that has your automation system and your broadcast library files, then you can import mp3 tags (your library data) directly. (3:29)

built-in function to export the data to a .csv file. (2:10)
PAL Script Editing For SAM Broadcaster

the needed script, but you may need to edit it. Here's how. (3:18)
