Beds on voicetrack
When creating a voicetrack you can set a bed, which would be a pre-faded song (faded by 8dB for example). This will play a background bed jingle during a voicetrack. We can do this live by using a "bed" group, which we put in the play log instead of a break note, then we speak over it. However we can't do it easily on voicetracks.

I agree, I’ve had to configure weather beds and TOH’s to make it work.

Will be very much welcomed by a couple of our volunteers as they've been using PlayoutONE's WebVT with this capability
James Jones commented
This has been introduced recently on PlayOutONE WebVT with 3 cart players to play beds in that dip automatically

We achieve this by placing the music bed before yeh track you want to play, then on the music bed you set the cue out put at the point you want the track after it in the playlist to play. Then make sure on the music bed you set the sweeper and no fade option on the music bed. This will ensure the music bed doesn’t fade out while your voice track or dry audio track is playing. Hope this helps you
