    StationPlaylist Creator (Categories File Wizard)

    Hello community, glad to be here

    I'm trying to build an Automated Radio Station and i 've almost end up between 2 softwares. RadioBoss and StationPlaylist Creator.
    RadioBoss is a great solution and i'm in love with it's scheduler. So simple in usage, has everything i need, is just perfect. But my bigest problem is that can not auto generate playlists according to basic multiple metadata info such as Genre, Mood and then Styles, Year, Multiple Genres.
    So i was trying to find an external application to do that work and StationPlaylist Creator came.

    I worked a bit but i couldnt figure out how on earth this Categories File Wizard works. Really, i just dont get it.

    This wizard, add files from a folder according to Genre, Mood, Year, Rating, BPM, Tempo, Energy, Gender, Comment, which is MUCH more from what i was asking and seems like a divine solution for me! But since is more than great, it was obvious that i would have loads of problems to make it work.

    So problems are :

    Genre : I'm trying to put more than one genre ie: House,Progressive,etc and then i tick Partial Match. Wizard can NOT Find ANY file even if the only citeria is Genre.It seems that it works with just one Genre thought, but what's the point of the Partial Match box? I obviously i tired more combinations but still nothing.
    Am i doing something wrong? And what is that? How it works?

    So i then tried the Mood choice. i put melow,rain,etc and same thing happens. Wizard cant find any file again.

    Then i'm trying to work with BPM. And that's kinda funny here. It has 2 fields. "BPM" and "To".
    But whatever i type on bpm, comes at the "To" field. So i can't put something such as "BPM" 80 "To" 120. So hopefully im doing something wrong aswell here or there is a bug.
    Same thing happens at Year.

    I dont even imagine what will happen if i will try to fill every field and make it like that :

    Genre : Electronic,Downtempo
    Mood : Drive,Rain
    Year : 2009 to 201
    Rating : 6 To 10
    Tempo : Slow Medium
    Comment : Morning

    And thats exactly what i needs :/


    PLEASE, im begging for help! Im trying for months now to make that project real and im desperate!
    If though, there is any other solution for Automated Radio Station, please advice me.


    Regards
    and sorry for my bad english

    I suggest you email Ross at Station Playlist, he is always extremely hepful, and will sort it out- if it is possible.
    I haven't used the Wizard thing, so can't comment. I would suggest you ask him though.
    Good Luck, AB
