SAYTEMP with music bed

Go to the Free Utilities section of the BSI website for preproduced SAYTIME and SAYTEMP files at:
http://www.bsiusa.com/support/freeutilities.php

This will create a C:\BSI32\Times folder and there will be a timetemp.chm file you can right-click > open with > Microsoft HTML Help Executable that explains how the utility works.

With that the SAYTEMP covered, you will need to create a cart with several macros (WEATHER.krt) and choose an audio file for the actual music bed (WeatherBedMusic.wav).

Create a cart (you can name it WEATHER.krt) or whatever you like) and place the following events in the cart:
   PAUSE 2
+ DECKFADE CURRENT, CURRENT, 40, 1500
+ SAYTEMP
+ DECKFADE CURRENT, CURRENT, 100, 1500
+ PAUSE 5
+ DECKFADE CURRENT, 100, 0, 1500, UNLOAD, RETURN

Use the PLAYASYNC macro in the log to play the WEATHER.krt in the Async deck, then put the audio music bed under it with a + autostart cue.

The program log should look like this:
+ PLAYASYNC WEATHER (name of the cart)
+ WeatherBedMusic

image

The WEATHER cart will play in the ASYNC deck #4. The playback of the next main deck with the music bed audio will begin immediately. The PAUSE 2 will wait and let the music bed play for 2 seconds and then fade the music bed to 40% over 1.5 seconds. The SAYTEMP will fire and when complete, the music bed will fade back up to 100%. The second PAUSE will let the music bed play for another 5 seconds before fading it out completely and advancing the program log. Adjust the PAUSE times and DECKFADE duration and percentages as you’d like.
