Playlist song gaps

Post by finnianr » Fri Mar 08, 2013 2:10 pm

I use Neutron for DJing at Tango dances. For dancers it is nice to have a pause of a few seconds between songs so they can relax their arms from the tango embrace. Quite a lot of my songs don't have a natural pause at the end. Is there any way I can get Neutron to automatically pause between songs in a playlist?

As a suggestion it would be fantastic if Neutron could treat the duration set after EXTINF as though it were the actual duration.

Hi Finnian,

There is no such functionality to force pause in between tracks. It can be implemented as a feature though. Will put it into to-do list for further considerations and thus moving this thread to Development section.

Best regards,

Some very simplistic apps out there (e.g. "Songer") are selling to MUSICIANS, SINGERS, and DJ's...
SOLELY due to the complete lack of a large-button, large-font skin showing an advancing playlist, with an automatic PAUSE after every song.
That allows the user to easily glance down, accept the next song in the playlist by hitting a large 'Play' button, or tapping/rearranging the playlist to select a different song and then tapping the Play button.
The immense effort that has gone into Neutron, for high quality playback, could definitely benefit the large-system, highly amplified stage performers that MUST have a 'gig-set'-based simple interface that includes NEVER automatically playing a 'next song' unless that option has been specifically selected.
In fact, if you can Auto-Pause, wait for Play-button, then you could likely add a quick options page that simply asks:
How many seconds should be inserted between songs?
Radio buttons for: 0,1,2,3,4,5,PAUSE-for-Play-Button.
That would be perfect...and flexible...and extremely useful.
Do this 'waiting' while allowing manipulation of the current playlist order or reselecting of next-song, and you have the perfect beast for preferred Music Player for performers.

But you are aware that Neutron has a Playback Mode called 'Play Track Once'? Here it wil only play the song, then stop.
