Nexus Integration

Enhanced Real-Time Integration

Thanks to MusicMaster’s uniquely open architecture, Integration has never been easier. With our Nexus Server API, third-party software systems can have instant, real-time access to MusicMaster's database and scheduling intelligence. Though primarily designed as an automation interface, the API can be used by any of your station’s systems, such as traffic and billing, research analysis or web and media services.

    Nexus Integrated Systems

    We’re here to enhance your connections, not overrule them. That’s why we’ve opened our system up and welcomed everyone in to take advantage of our Nexus API. In fact, we’ve already partnered with many of the top, most widely-used automation systems in the world. Chances are, you’ll find your system among them. If not - ask your automation provider if integration with MusicMaster and Nexus is part of their development plans.

  • What is Nexus Integration?

    Instant Results, "Auto-Magically"

    It’s the epic love story between two systems from different lands, longing to connect but unable to communicate... until now. MusicMaster’s Nexus API breaks the language barrier with instant, effortless translation - and you live happily ever after.

    So what does happily ever after look like? Here’s just a few examples of what’s possible through Nexus.

    When adding music...
    Add or update your music in your automation system and pass primary fields on to your MusicMaster library. This helps you save time when entering new music and ensures that your databases are in perfect sync.

    When updating song information...

    Likewise, when you update your MusicMaster library, you can instantly request that information from the automation system. This is a cool feature for getting your on-air talent that new piece of song trivia or details on a fresh debut track.

    When making song replacements in the studio...
    If your on-air talent wants to add or swap a song on the fly to catch-up the hour time or fulfill a request, they can search the MusicMaster library right from the automation interface. Even better, they’ll see which songs are ideal candidates based on your scheduling data and rules. Once they’ve selected a new song to play, MusicMaster will automatically reconcile its own log and keep your play history up-to-date.

  • Using the Nexus API

    Using the Nexus API

    Nexus works through an Application Programming Interface (API), a set of tools that define how two foreign software systems communicate. MusicMaster Partners use the API to define the specific commands and requests that can be made between their system and MusicMaster. These instructions are accessed through an initialization file that runs when you launch Nexus.

    With Nexus running, your third-party systems have real-time access to MusicMaster’s scheduling data and business intelligence. Communication between both systems occurs over the Internet or local area network.

    Third Party Systems Can:

    • Get MusicMaster's user-defined field names and types.
    • List codes for any Attribute fields (e.g.,sound, tempo).
    • List Category names and codes.
    • Query the music library to search for specific songs.
    • Retrieve a list of available Saved Song Lists.
    • View and update existing song information.
    • Add new songs to the MusicMaster library.
    • Load a music schedule for any date.
    • Reconcile schedule changes to update MusicMaster's airplay histories.
    • Request replacement songs for any scheduled element.
    • Export a custom-designed log file.
