Quick Tip: Format Clock Analysis
While you could count up all the different elements and categories you use in a clock, there’s no need to. Use the pie chart icon on the clock screen and you’ll open a view with more tabs including Category Usage and Element Usage. Each of these does all the calculations for you. Category Usage lists your categories in the same order you see in the InfoBar. The Element Usage breaks the counts into Song, Break and the other elements a clock can contain. This tab also breaks the information out into the time allotted for each so you’ll know how much of your hour is music and how much is talk.

My favorite features in MusicMaster are the Rule Tree and The Special Rule Tree Items, keyboard commands for quick programming, and Library Maintenance (mass changes, rotation analysis).”
