Automatic Audio File Import

Burli can automatically detect audio data in a given directory and import it into the In-queue.
This is useful for importing audio data from other audio editors, FTP uploads, subscription data feeds, and so on, that must immediately and automatically appe
ar in the In-queue. Any workstation can perform this capture however Burli does need to be running for the import to happen. This feature does not require a sound card or COM port and a workstation can be set up to import material from up to nine separate directories simultaneously.

  1. On the Newswires2 tab, select one of the AUDIPT newswires whichever is not currently being used from the list; they all behave in the same way.
  2. Click the Install… button. The dialogue box appears (see above)
  3. Enter a directory to monitor. Use a full UNC path to the directory or use the FTP settings. Mapped drives can also be used.
  4. If there are sub-directories in the folder that should also be monitored, check ‘Include Sub-Folders’. With this checked, ALL subdirectories will be monitored.
  5. If there is existing older material in the import folder, you can specify with the Files Older than or Files Newer than to only include the most recent material. Please be aware that when using an FTP site for ingest, the time is relative to the FTP site so if you are in a different time zone, you may have to compensate for the time difference.
  6. Select what happens to the file after it is imported.
    Auto Purge Files will delete the files after they have been imported. This is the default setting. Deleted files are NOT sent to the recycle bin and are not recoverable.
  7. Select the file extension of the file types that you want to ingest. Use a *. preceding the extension and if you need to include more than one file type, separate each extension with a ; (semicolon) e.g.. *.wav;*.mp3
  8. Click OK

Burli will now monitor the given directory and add any valid audio items it finds to the In-Queue. Burli will check for new items in the directories every few seconds.

Filtering the Audio

After you have added your one of more AUDIPT newswires, you may want to add one or more Filters. If you are using more than one AUDIPT, you should add the following MAIN.INI setting which will give you more than one AUDIPT source to choose from.


Now when you add a Filter for each AUIDIPT newswire, you can filter each one based on its corresponding newswire Source. (Wire:AUDIPT to Wire:AUDIPT8)
