If I put a song from a category into the heavy rotation group am I able to delete it from just the heavy rotation group and not the base category? Also if I have songs in a rotation group can I refresh the base category and the heavy rotation processing still work? Or do I have to refresh the base category and then reestablish the heavey rotation rule?

I'm kinda lost on this. . . . . :?:

The Heavy/Medium/etc. Rotation categories are automatically filled based on a song's weight/balance value. You can put songs in these categories but as the weight/balance changes songs will move around.

If you plan on using weighted rotation to determine your mix, expect songs to migrate as their weights change as explained in the Help files "Playlist rotation rules." You can make songs stay in certain of these categories by setting your "Adjust weight..." values to zero in Config>Playlist rotation rules>Playlist logic modules.

I use the Clockwheel to start new formats and such. Does the weight not have any effect then? From what I gather, the higher the weight, the more often a song gets played, right?

The Weight, according to Louis:
Quote:
Weight tells SAM how important a song is, while Weight balance tells SAM how much this song has played relative to other songs.

It is recommended to always reset your weight balance after adding a lot of new songs.

If you want to keep a constant relationship between songs, fix the weights as indicated above. My mix is based on chart position so I use weight to keep things in check, as it were. I periodically run a SQL UPDATE to adjust the weight of groups of songs then use Adjust Weight Balance to get everybody back on an even keel.
