Re: Audio output balancing and volume.

I've played a bit with SoundFlower, and it's definitely a great utility to have around! I tried using an app called Detour that was part of the HiJack suite, but it never worked well for me - SoundFlower worked perfectly. I'm one of those that use big fancy analog mixers, but I still may check out M...

Re: Accessing Internal Music Folder for KJAMS

If you're looking for the song file in the kJams Music folder, then you'll be disappointed - the Add to Library function of kJams doesn't copy your music to its internal music library folder, it just links to the file wherever it sits (quite possibly in your iTunes folder!) If you link to an iTunes ...

Re: cross fader question

The only recent time that it has happened to me was when I was trying to do something ridiculous - a singer wanted to sing the first 1/3 of a particular song, then cut to a different song and finish with it. I was working in the dark (late evening outdoor barbecue) and panicked kJams a bit - I know ...

Re: Crossfade playback between songs

Sorry, posted before editing with testing results. I think the blank track would kind of kill the ease of the automix mode. See my edit for the pause timing that should work.

Re: Crossfade playback between songs

I could be wrong about this, but my understanding of the crossfade feature is that it starts the turntable it is fading to as part of the crossfade action - or, depending on the crossfade mode, starts it after the fade has reached 100% to a deck - not quite sure which. Still, from using the crossfad...

Re: Create custom "pause/Who's singing next" graphic???

All of the screens in kJams are fully editable using the free version of the Producer plugin - get it, then go through the video tutorials. You can create new screens, as well as edit the ones that come with kJams to your liking. A handy tip - make a backup of any screen you intend to change by crea...

Re: Crossfade playback between songs

It's really unfortunate that there is no scripted volume control. My normal workflow is to use the Automix feature of dJay, which keeps both turntables loaded. It also appears there is no way to UN load a turntable, and I don't know of one in the application, although it may be there - so almost by ...

Re: Crossfade playback between songs

Deus, Will your script - or an easily edited version of it - allow me to crossfade between kJams and dJay (which I prefer for playing music)? Normally I have everything set up separate to my board (with lots of channels) and cross my own fades. I use dJay for longer music segments (like when setting...

Re: Upgrade sheds Plugins

Thanks for trying, Dave - we'll catch up Tuesday night. I did set permissions as per your link, and then tried installing Producer with kJams shut down. I looked in the kJams Plugins folder, and sure enough, Burner (which was there when I set permissions) was gone, and Producer was there!) I'm assum...

Re: Upgrade sheds Plugins

As a note, just upgraded d51 to d51r1. Application did not automatically restart. Producer plugin still there. Burner plugin not, but I don't think I got around to installing it into d51. Installing now. (so I can update you on the next upgrade) Installed Burner (1.0a14). kJams was running during in...

Upgrade sheds Plugins

Dave, Is it a normal and expected thing to have to re-install plugins after each upgrade? It seems I have had to do so after the last few. I know I was at d50r70 with both Burner and Producer working, after suffering through some of the madness of kJams asking to update both, and not really updating...

Re: External CD+G Compatible Reader/Writer

if you *used to have a tower* with a good CDG-RW, then make sure you pull that out before getting rid of the tower - even if it means swapping some $20 cheapo CD player in it. Then, for a pittance, you can buy a 5.25 CD Drive caddy, and use your already known good drive as an external. This proven m...

Re: Freeze on search

I think I also had similar problems, but my fix, if I remember correctly, was to stop either viewing or sorting by (I forget which) columns that read data from the sidecar xml files that kJams writes to disk.
