There should be an option for commercials / promos / station IDs where it lets you assign desired item to play after every {insert preferred amount of songs}.

All done much better with liberal use of PAL scripting. In fact that is what makes SAM so powerful is 90% of this stuff is all doable through PAL and is not locked down by pre-defined features the developers program in.

Obviously you need to review on how a clockwheel works. It can't get much easier than that.

From what I understand is the clockwheel is still sporadic. Can you please advise on how to set commercials, promos and station ID's ? Please excuse my ignorance. I am old school DJ - where everything was recorded on reel to reel and if you wanted music you had to get it on vinyl.

Much thanks & Blessings,
Irie

The clockwheel works fine with a sufficient library arranged in considered categories and well thought out rules. Is it perfect? No, but it will get you pretty darn close to the sound you want.

Just put your promos, IDs, etc. in categories you create under the proper heading and place a line in your clockwheel to draw from those cats in the rotation. You can get fancier and use PAL scripts to put stuff more precisely. I recently posted my scripts for my TOH, BOH & quarter-hour stop sets.

Yes, it does take a little work and forethought, but as one who constantly had his paper logs sent back for want of a checkmark I can assure you it is quite doable.

Here's the TOH script: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=28001&hilit=TOH#p139115

The others are variations on the theme. They're out there somewhere. Try searching on my username.
