Toolbox for building coding rules in MusicMasterPro posted on October 3rd, 2016
By Marianne Burkett
I love Genius Days. Why? Even after working at MusicMaster for years and years, I always walk away with some new tidbit of information to help programming my music and content even easier.
Typically, when I build rules – I use the Library analysis feature for the entire active library for specific coding, to decide on what kind of separation or quotas I will use in the rules. At the last Genius Day I attended, our founder – Joe Knapp, showed me something I have never used before: Coding Turnovers!
Go to Turnover Analysis. At the bottom of your screen you’ll see your Turnover Graph. Above the graph are some small icons. Third icon from the right is the icon you click to bring up Coding Turnovers
When you click on this, you’ll see a field selection prompt. You pick your field in MusicMaster.
Not only do you get the percentage that you get in Library Analysis, but you also get the projected turnover rates for each code! This is a tremendous piece of info. In the example below – it tells me what amount of time I can actually use in the rules to separate these codes.
With this kind of information at your fingertips, you can build title or time separation rules with confidence. You could perhaps use the Turnover column in the Breakable Folder as your base rule and relax it a bit in Unbreakable.
I love helping you troubleshoot your Rule Tree and scheduling challenges and I guarantee that now when you call me for help, I’ll be using this tool.
