Is there a setting to change the announcer volume?  The walk up song will be good volume and then when announcer starts talking it

Are you referring to the text to speech announcement or a recorded announcement?

There is no configuration option in the app to change either one currently but there are options within the iOS interfaces that I could enable to turn the volume down of either one.
That would only help you if they are too loud. There is no way to turn the volume for them higher.  The volume value in the iOS interface is 0.0 to 1.0 and they default to 1.0 which is what you currently hear with the app.

It appears that your last reply was truncated... could you try that again?

Sent you a PM, but thought it may generate some ideas from others or responses at least.

Would be really cool if the recorded announcement good be transposed on top of the walkout song.  So the song starts, then the announcement is made on top of the song playing in the back ground, and then the song returns to full volume.  There isn't a ton of time to get both the announcement and then at least 9-10 seconds of the song.  The distance between the the dugout and home plate just isn't that far.

On the overlay of the announcement and the walkout... that is pretty complex overall because of the coordinated volume and timing sequence.  In my tests, the user would need the ability to configure both of those options on a song by song basis to get quality output and I would somehow need to gracefully preclude using Apple Music songs with that option because I cannot independently control the volume of the player Apple requires I use to play those.  I have to actually snapshot, fade, and restore the volume of the whole device for those songs.  Ugly, but it works.

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to analyze the usage mix between Apple Music subscription songs and unrestricted song files to see what the mix is.  My last three day snapshot puts the Apple Music percentage around 40% but that may be a spike because of the recently added support.   If there is still a reasonable percentage of people using unrestricted song files, then I will take a look at how to mix the announcement and walkout song as an advanced option.

Thank you for the suggestion!
