White Plains, NY - May 7, 2010 - RCS has released GSelector 3.14.1, adding more tools to the music scheduler. Enhancements include reverse scheduling methodology, daypart slotting and automatic Internet updates.
Reverse scheduling is intended to optimize rotations of smaller categories containing songs that also appear in pre-scheduled special programming. Reverse scheduling plays songs from designated categories into the schedule in reverse chronological order, starting at the point where the hand scheduled songs have been placed. The pre-scheduled music thus establishes the starting point of the scheduling order, to provide optimized rotation.
Slotting by daypart automatically provides near-perfect placement of high-rotation songs having alternate category assignments. The Scheduler will slot, as precisely as possible, the songs in the category group while respecting their alternate category assignments and optimizing placement around those daypart boundaries where a song moves from one category group to another.
This release of GSelector contains further scheduling options that many contemporary music stations will find useful. These include kicking without slotting as well as new spread goal options and refinements. Using these scheduling features, singly or in combination, provides new ways to take control of scheduling songs in smaller, high-rotation categories.
When GSelector starts it now automatically checks for a new general release of GSelector and displays a message and options if one is available via Internet update. When running a stand-alone configuration, one option will allow immediate installation of the upgrade.
