Cart Chunk

Suitable for AudioVault, Genesys, EncoDADpro32, Enco Presenter, Myriad, RCS Zetta and WideOrbit - each system uses the PostTimers (cue points) in a slightly different way, and the Broadcast Radio/PSquared method makes extensive use of the UserDef field.

A ZIP file of CartChunk files is available on my website next to the MyLibrary download.

Artist : The Artist or Performer
Title : The Title of the track
CutID : The Cart or Cut number
AppID : Denotes what application created the Cart Chunk
Appver : The version of the application
OutCue : The ending of the track - can be used to denote End/Fade or the out-words for a commercial
URL : Generic text field
UserDef : Generic text field - used by PSquared to denote End type and Audiowall colours

Marker names and usage may differ between different systems!

Cue In/Out
These are typically used to signify the physical start/stop points of a track.  If there is silence at the top/tail of the file, the AUD markers can be used to ensure the playback starts "instantly".
AUDs : Start of Audio
AUDe : End of Audio

Intro/Vocal
Used to signify the start/end of the vocal ramp - where the DJ can safely talk before the singing starts.
INTs
INTe
INT1
INT2
INT3

Segue
The SEGs is the normal segue point - some systems (such as EncoDAD) can also be fed a SEGe (Segue End) marker but this is not essential.
SEC1
SEGs
SEGe

Additional Markers
The Secondary and Tertiary cues are used in some systems (such as EncoDAD) to trigger hardware events during playback - typical usage includes "end of song" indication or remote source switching.
MRK1
MRK2
SEC
TER

Using the Show Tags for this File menu option, a new feature shows the actual value of the PostTimer cue markers.  This is because the values are derived from the sample-rate of the audio, making a visual check not alway easy - hence the following addition:
