Forget Crossfade Script [MM3] -(auto crossfade switching)

Post by DaledeSilva » Sat Mar 01, 2008 4:44 am

Hello,
I've put together a functional little script to help listening to seamless music require less action.

Since MM3 implemented crossfading it's great, when you’re listening to a selection of random songs, it enables a seamless transition between them. When your listening to an album in it’s normal order, however, the tracks have generally been produced in a seamless way already and crossfading them can ruin that.

Forget about changing the crossfade settings, they will take care of themselves from now on!

Forget Crossfade will mean you no longer need to turn on and off the crossfade settings when you play different songs in succession. 15 seconds before any track you are playing finishes, Forget Crossfade will check what track is coming up next. If the track is the next song on the same album, it will turn crossfading off automatically. If the track is not the next track on the album (or shuffle is turned on) then crossfading will be turned on (with the same timing settings you already had set).

To activate or deactivate Forget Crossfade, click “Auto Crossfade” in the Play Menu.

This script should be very useful for most people without them even having to think about it.. especially anyone who listens to mix cd's!

Download the script here:

(unzip, then run)

Dale.

Thank you! That's a great idea! :D

I'm getting error messages sometimes though ...

i think this error appears if there is no next song, i.e. the song is the last one in the playlist

Wow, what a great idea! I'm an album listener by nature but I will eventually want to try some random track autodjs and playlists (I'm still pretty new to MM). I had resorted myself to the fact that I probably would never use crossfade since I'd more often want it off than on so I'd just settle. Anything to help automate the listening process is a plus in my book. I'm lazy. :P

I was thinking why does nobody take a look at the waveform to analyze whether crossfading is desirable or not.
For example with a trance/techno/.. mix cd tracks the whole 'set' is cut into pieces. The audio level of the last 0.01 second of a track is high as is the first 0.01 second of the next track. If the script notices such thing you know crossfade will ruine the mix.
In case the track the end of the track is quiet, crossfade might be interesting.

If you don't have admin privileges in your windows account, I think installing most scripts (if not all) will give that error... if that's the case, get someone with admin privileges to install it and then it should automatically be installed for you as well.

All you have to do is right-click the MM icon and Run as Administrator (assuming you have admin rights) then install the script. The next time you run MM from a standard user account, the script should work properly. It has every time for me using this method.
