Audio Import, an advanced audio gateway deployed on a central server, plays a vital role in seamlessly importing external sound files and associated metadata into the OmniPlayer database. This feature-rich tool allows for the efficient importation and conversion of files, automatically creating new titles or linking them to existing placeholders as necessary.
With Audio Import, users can create and assign import profiles, streamlining the process even further. A profile designated for news can trigger an IP command to the OmniPlayer Dashboard, notifying DJs of successful news sound file imports with a "News ready" indicator. Each profile can be configured with separate output settings and duration specifications.
Audio Import provides automated normalization and pitch adjustments during file conversion. OmniPlayer also integrates with VST plugins like StereoTool (license required) for advanced audio processing capabilities.
Metadata associated with sound files can be easily imported or updated using XML files through Audio Import. This includes both metadata directly linked to the sound files and metadata used solely for creating placeholders.
The Playlist Import application serves as a vital link between OmniPlayer and external music rotation or traffic scheduling software. It facilitates seamless communication by allowing OmniPlayer to interface with various music scheduling systems, including Powergold, Selector, and MusicMaster, which generate TAB separated ASCII files.
The Playlist Import feature offers a range of supplementary functions that can be performed manually or automated. These include importing logs with macros, importing logs with schedule time, importing logs into multiple radio stations, and importing title libraries.
