Assign Output Devices to Playback Decks

Easily assign output devices to each playback deck in the music player. Selection is automatic when only one output device is detected. This music player only detects output devices installed on the operating system. When you have more than one output device installed, you can use anyone one of them on each deck.

Playback Decks
  • Deck ‘A’   : This is the first of the two primary decks and consequently, it is always set as the current deck when the player is loaded with the first songs, regardless of whether you created a new list or loaded one.
  • Deck ‘B’   : Similarly, this is the second of the two primary decks and consequently, it is always set as the next deck when the player is loaded with the first songs, regardless of whether you created a new list or loaded one.
  • Cue Deck   : Even though this deck is used to create up to 10 entries for each position type for every song, it can also be used as a third playback deck. Likewise, it can be configured as the monitor for the next deck when multiple output devices are detected.
  • Message Parameters   : This deck is used by the message parameters editor. The player offers three different ways to process messages. They can be any audio file supported by the player.
