Auto DJ & clock wheels are all fine and dandy. But much of my programing relies on hand built playlists (for sets with sensible segues and rhythmic transitions)
A very simple fix and handy addition would be for SAM to display the current playlist in the Queue titlebar. ...pretty please!
Don't know about the "simple" aspect but indeed could be useful; as long as the queue is not affected by other external means (ads, liners, ..., manual entries, ...) since the only way to keep track of the playlist being played would be the number of items it has and countdown until that number of songs have played.
If the playlists are manually added a written note stuck on the monitor can help.
If the playlists are automatically scheduled a matrix of the Event Scheduler can provide a quick visual lookup for what SAM is doing; I believe there is a calendar mod (by DJ Cassio?) in PHP that lists the ES actions.
FWIW sensible segues and rhythmic transitions can be done via auto DJ and clockwheels; takes a little effort to train/tune the categories and the songs but in the long run it can be quite powerful; whereas a playlist is a static list, the auto dj does not have that constrain.
