StationPlaylist Creator Setup

Music 1 has one output for StationPlaylist Studio and another for StationPlaylist Creator.  Creator is the system's own scheduler, but many SPS users get Music 1 because of the more advanced functionality and flexibility of our software. The output for SPS is simpler; it's just a basic .m3u-type playlist file but is delivered to SPS specially prepared in twenty-four individual hourly lists for each day. The output for Creator is more complex and allows you to add such things as hard- and soft-sync commands for time updates, network joins, etc.

With SPS, you tell the system where the Music 1-created playlists will be (the drive\folder) and tell it to "automate".  After that, you just make your daily schedules with Music 1 and save them. Each night at midnight, SPS loads and launches the next day's schedule.

With Creator, there is some set-up involved (details below). After you've got it prepared, you'll make the daily schedules with Music 1, then manually import them into Creator and save them individually.  It is an extra daily step (you can do many days in advance, of course), but it's not much trouble and only a few extra 'click's.
