Especially during live streaming, we are using more songs with backing tracks recorded in the studio by our musicians. As these are of a fixed length, it would be good to automatically advance the slides at the appropriate time during the song playback.

1. Title Slide. Wait 5 seconds then
2. Verse 1 slide. Wait 20 seconds then
3. Chorus 1 slide. Wait 25 seconds then
3. Verse 2 slide. Wait 20 seconds then
4. Chorus 1 slide. Wait 25 seconds then
5. Ending slide. Wait 15 seconds then
6. Next item.

Is this something that could be considered for a future update please? One advantage would be that the Proclaim operator could set the timings in advance, and relax (go for a comfort break) during the auto-screening of a song.

For the time being, I have written a script using AutoHotkey that records the slide timings for songs with backing tracks, saves them into a file, and then uses the timings to automatically advance the slides when live or in Preview mode. You will need to install AutoHotkey to make this work. (I hope this is allowed!)

Thanks for the request! This is something we have heard before. If you have time, feel free to leave this feedback at our new feedback site here: https://feedback.faithlife.com/boards/faithlife-proclaim that way others can vote on it too.

Currently, you can do it like you did, or you can accomplish this with MIDI and a DAW like Ableton. Here is a help article on that, incase it looks easier than what you have setup now. https://support.faithlife.com/hc/en-us/articles/360007128892-How-to-Automate-Song-Slides-with-Ableton-Live
