XStudio Voice Tracker Release Notes

Release notes include changes, enhancements and corrections by date and version number of the application.

Version1.5.2.160- 01/11/2018

  1. Enhancement. Users can now optionally have voice track recordings auto-start on first detected audio rather than the recording starting immediately at Aux Mark in an auto-track sequence. This feature can be used to avoid any "dead air" at the beginning of the voice track, thus tightening up the playback sequence in cases where, for instance, a song ends cold. When enabled, manual recordings also start at detection of first audio. The audio threshold for starting the recording is set using the Record Auto-Start Threshold property in Preferences.

  2. Enhancement. Song intro times are automatically updated when refreshing information from the music data.

  3. Change. XStudio Voice Tracker now checks to ensure that the just-recorded voice actually has audio in the file. If the voice track has no audio data blocks, the user is advised to re-do the recording and the voice track cart is not committed, either automatically or manually by the user.

  4. Change. The Aux Mark LED has been enlarged to provide a more obvious cue when auto-tracking.

  5. Fix. Certain non-standard data in an exported music data file would cause an AV when being imported. XStudio Voice Tracker now detects and works around these unexpected values.

  6. Fix. XStudio Voice Tracker would erroneously copy a completed voice track to the root directory of the drive on which is was running if a station's voice track transfer audio path was empty. No file copy should have occurred if no transfer audio path was defined.

Version - 07/13/2016

  1. Enhancement. A floating clock display has been added. The clock is configurable for size, location and color scheme.

  2. Enhancement. Importing of music data has be revised to include more information. Depending on the music scheduling system you are exporting your library from, XStudio Voice Tracker now imports song run time (length), category, intro, ending, album, and release year. Note that some library exports do not include all of this new information and when not present in the source data, XStudio Voice Tracker will leave the affected field blank.

  3. Enhancement. A new music export template for MusicMaster has been introduced. This template adds the fields Album and Year (typically Peak Year or Release Year) to the exported data. A sample template is included in the XStudio Voice Tracker installation. This new export structure can be constructed and used with other music scheduling systems as well.

  4. Enhancement. Previously, if the audio engine was not running when XStudio Voice Tracker launched and XStudio Voice Tracker could not start the engine, the list of available audio devices for playback and recording would be empty until XStudio Voice Tracker was restarted once the audio engine was running. Now, if the audio engine is later started, XStudio Voice Tracker will update the device list, eliminating the need to restart XStudio Voice Tracker to populate the device lists.

  5. Enhancement. XStudio Voice Tracker now detects Windows 10 and adjusts its display accordingly.

  6. Fix. The Open Log dialog has been updated to ensure the "Busy" display doesn't disappear behind the main dialog when scanning for available log files.
