The original traffic and music log merge utility for DCS, Maestro and XStudio!

LogMerge supports most popular traffic and music scheduling systems and features advanced error-checking and control over the process of merging dissimilar source logs to produce a ready-for-airplay broadcast log.

Inventory validation ensures that scheduled items are, in fact, available on the host DCS, Maestro, or XStudio system - both the item's existence and validity for the specified log date are checked.

Version 5.7.1, released 6/6/2011, fixes a problem with pasting the registration key into the Registration Code field. If you have version 5.7.0, you should download and install this update.

LogMerge is a conversion and merge utility designed to provide the DCS, Maestro or XStudio user with a method of merging a music log (output by a music scheduling system) and a traffic log (output by a traffic system) into a single file that meets the structural requirements of the DCS Generic Log File specification v1.5, as published by Computer Concepts Corporation.

The general sequence is: user exports a music log to a defined format, exports the traffic log to a defined format, and then runs LogMerge. LogMerge reads each of the source files (music log and traffic log). The two source files are then merged and output as DCS generic log file. As the file is being written to the target directory in the DCS Generic Log File format, a separate file is created to document errors.

Supported Music, Traffic Systems

Music scheduling systems currently supported include MusicMaster (formerly MusicScan) Type 1 and Type 2, POWERGOLD, MusicPro, Music 1, Results 98 and Selector™.

Traffic systems supported include Computer Concepts and any other traffic system capable of exporting its log to the DCS Generic Log File format - most of the major traffic system vendors make available such an export.

  • Inventory checking - the log contents are compared to DCS, Maestro or XStudio inventory to check for availability and date range.
  • Verification of merged log versus original traffic log to ensure all original source traffic log commercials are on the finished log.
  • Support of direct cart calls from the Music log file.
  • Support of Load Directives from the Music log file.
  • Support of Execute Functions from the Music log file.
  • Automatic macro conversion of DCS, Maestro, and XStudio macro characters for day, hour, and voice number.
  • The finished output file can be used without editing, although inspection is highly recommended.
  • You can re-merge the logs and overwrite the previous log, even the current day log in-use.
  • Log preview - view the log after merging in a built-in viewer. Information includes hourly content totals, helpful in determining whether or not a given log will perform as desired.
  • Supported music scheduling systems include: Music Master (formerly MusicScan) Type 1 and Type 2, POWERGOLD, MusicPro, Music 1, Results 98 and Selector™.
