So you’ve installed RadioDJ and imported your music and you’re stuck as to what track rotations are let me try and explain a little.
Track Rotations in RadioDJ selects the music only from the categories you tell it to choose from, You can have multiple rotations for different moods, just don’t forget to save the rotation once you’ve created it.
Also make sure when creating a rotation item that the repeat rules boxes are checked so you don’t have any repetition in songs.

Installing RadioDJ v2.0.0 the easy way
We know it can be daunting and scary installing radio automation software for the first time.
Especially if you aren’t used to using software that requires a database, but don’t panic it’s not as difficult to setup as you might think.
If you follow these easy steps and have a bit of patience then you should have the program up and running in no time.
1) Starting off with a fresh clean install of your Windows operating system is usually a good bet.
(But not essential)
Don’t forget to backup files/databases/program settings IF you decide to reformat Windows.
Once you’ve reinstalled/cleaned Windows junk files and downloaded & installed all required security patches/updates/drivers for your PC then you can begin the process of installing and configuring RadioDJ.

Spacial Audio Does Not Support PAL Scripting.
If its not one thing its another when it comes to Spacial Audio and their software support.
Just seen this on the Spacial forums from the customer service manager after someone was asking for help with a (badly coded) PAL Script (Playlist Automation Language)
“Spacial does not support PAL scripts, No support can be provided nor responsibility accepted”

Just been looking back on various posts on my Facebook page.
I realised it was around June 2014 when we were first made aware of MariaDB an alternative to Oracle MySQL
Since that first install a few years ago things have ran smoothly. We’ve not had to rebuild the RadioDJ database from scratch once.

Saw this post on a forum on a post about RadioDJ free radio automation software.
“The biggest fail with RadioDJ to me is the reliance upon a MySQL database”
A: RadioDJ requires MySQL to run some backend functions such as Rotations/Playlists/Events
Having an MySQL database makes programming on your website (PHP) really straight forward, You can show what’s currently playing or recently played or even take listener requests.
The fact RadioDJ relies on a database for some of it’s functions is actually one of it’s PLUS points.
