Live Queue For One-Off Requests

You get requests from people but you don’t want to change your lists or the ‘set‘ you have loaded. Add them to the ‘Live Queue‘ list. Play them any time then simply through them away. Most features associated with a list also apply to this one. Exceptions are described below.

 

Image shows how the 'Live Queue' appears in the display grid.The ‘Live Queue‘ is not like any of the other lists.

  • It cannot be saved.
  • It is always the first list in the display-grid but it cannot be the only list.
  • The loop (Image of the 'Loop' column header.) setting cannot be changed.

 

One reason to use the ‘Live Queue‘ would be for requests you don’t want to create a list to hold. Another example would be that you have songs to play but you don’t want to put them into a list until you have checked them out.

Like all lists, when a song is added to the ‘Live Queue‘ that does not exist in the library, it is analyzed to determine the duration and to automatically trim any silence from the beginning and ending of the song. The rest of the functions associated with lists are available for the ‘Live Queue‘. Manipulate songs in it like any other list. You can set multiple-next songs in it.
