Overrides Tab

Overrides allow you to override values when importing audio into PlayoutONE

Type & Category

Type Sets the type of audio being imported. This must be set for all audio import profiles unless using  Preserve Type
Category Sets the category to import into. This is optional. As well as categories in PlayoutONE to select from you may also select two further custom categories.

[Import Folder Name]
 allows you to set the category to the folder name that the file belongs to. This is useful when using the Recursive Import option as it allows you to copy a number of subfolders (80s, 90s, 00s for example) and have the category automatically set based on which folder the file was imported from.

[Top Level Import Folder] to be used again with the Recursive Import option. For example, you have \80s\pop\ 80s\rock & 80s\dance folders within the main Import Folder. When [Top Level Import Folder] is selected, the 80s folder will be used for the category rather than pop, rock, dance.

Timing Overrides

Intro Sets the Intro time for the item being imported.
Extro Sets the Extro time for the item being imported. If Offset + is checked then the Extro time is offset based on the Extro automatically detected. For example, if the value set to override Extro is 5 seconds, and the Extro automatically detected by Auto Importer is 20 seconds, then the new Extro will be 25. If Offset- is checked then the new Extro in PlayoutONE will be 15 seconds.
Early Extro Sets the Early Extro time for the item being imported. If Offset (Minus Extro) is checked then the Early Extro will be calculated based on the Extro. For example, if the value set to override the Early Extro is 5 seconds and then Extro is detected as 15 seconds then the Early Extro will be set to 10 seconds. By default, the Early Extro is set to the same as the Extro.
Trim Out Sets the Trim Out time for the item being imported.

Thresholds

Trim In Sets the threshold for detecting silence at the start of the file being imported. The default value is -60
Extro Sets the threshold for detecting the Extro. The default value is -12
Trim Out Sets the threshold for detecting where the audio ends and silence begins for the file being imported. The default value is -90
LUFS Alters the dB level for the analysed LUFS value. If you need to boost or reduce the audio level after the LUFS normalisation process then alter this value accordingly. The default value is 0.

Set Artist To Sets the Artist of the item being imported. Placeholders may also be used here.
Set Year To Sets the Year of the item being imported. This field is limited to a maximum of 4 characters. Placeholders may also be used here.

UID Range
