Issue Reporting / Re: Can’t access my library

Is this on Apple or Android?  Where is your music located?

Regarding the mixing option on Apple devices...  that only works with songs that you purchase from iTunes directly or imported audio files.   For Apple music subscription songs, Apple does not provide any way to control the volume of the playback without controlling the whole device volume.  Mixing without being able to fade the song at start or end sounds pretty horrible.

If the mixing option is important to you, then a reasonable option would be to purchase individually the songs you are using for walkouts mixed with announcements and then use subscription songs for the rest of the app.

On Apple, the file not found error usually occurs because the Apple iCloud management is removing local copies of song files because it doesn't think you are using them.  Might be possible to make more storage space on the device to avoid the file not found problem.

Enhancement Requests / Re: Announcement Effects
« on: February 02, 2019, 08:08:43 pm »
I have evaluated the addition of affects to the text to speech announcements and it doesn't seem very possible without changing to a commercial provider of the text to speech which would not be free.

The Apple speech engine provides no opportunity to manipulate the audio output of text to speech.  Android does provide some opportunity to manipulate the text to speech, but the affects I have tried did not really come close to making the robot voices sound like a stadium announcer.

I do plan on evaluating some commercial text to speech companies to see if they could provide something along the stadium announcer theme that I could provide as in app purchase.

I do get many questions and occasional bad reviews regarding the robot voices so it is high on my list of improvements to make in the next year.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions / Re: How to import songs
« on: January 25, 2019, 08:53:54 pm »
You can import song files to the Apple version of the app by either emailing them to yourself as a file attachment or putting them on a cloud service like iCloud, dropbox, google drive.  Open the email or cloud source, tap on the song file and select 'copy to walkout songs' from the menu which will copy the song to the imported file collection in the app.

Release Notes / iOS version 2.5.2 has bug in announcement recording
« on: January 02, 2019, 03:43:12 pm »
iOS version 2.5.2 that was just released from the app store today has a bug in the announcement recording that prevents you from playing back or using recorded announcements for your players. 

I have a fixed version 2.5.3 submitted to the app store that should be available as soon as Apple completes their review.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions / Re: sign in to app on different device
« on: December 16, 2018, 05:35:47 pm »
You can export all the settings to an email and import that on another device, but the music must be redownloaded on that device because the music industry is pretty touchy on apps transferring songs.  The app will match up the songs on the other device by title and artist if they are there.

Yes, that feature is still on the todo list and getting pretty close to the top now that the mixing feature is done!

Awesome!  I was waiting to get a little feedback from my early adopter beta testers (like you) before making a public announcement about the new Apple version beta with the mixed song and announcement.  Very glad to hear it is working for you.  I am pretty happy with how it works and sounds on both Android and Apple.  The only real drawback is that it wont work with subscription music sources like Apple Music, but I figure you really only have to buy the songs you are using for walkouts so not a huge money investment to get the professionalism you noted.

This feature how now been implemented in the Android version 2.5.1 available from the Play store as of 11/16/18.

I will investigate the possibility of adding it to the Apple version as well, but it will require purchased songs and will not work with Apple Music songs.

The app isn't geared toward Apple devices, but that is the platform it was written for originally back in 2013 when iTunes and iPods were the primary mobile music platforms.  The Android version was finally released this year and sales growth is good, but Currently the app sells 10x on Apple vs Android and the user base ratio is 23000 to 1800 so I tend to assume most comments here are from Apple users unless someone mentions Android in their post.

It should be possible to do an overlap with mp3 files on Android and I was considering testing that out in a beta over the offseason.  I will comment on this thread if I am able to get it working.

Thanks for your request!
