Description:This database allows you to keep track of your Optimod 8200 processor settings. If you are in charge of several FM stations, and with today's consolidation what engineer isn't, then this database is a must. Fields for processor name, date and preset name are supplied as well as fields for all preset settings. All processor settings are entered with pop up menus except for final clip drive. The number of settings for final clip drive exceeds the maximum number of pop up entries allowed by HanDBase, so that entry from -3.0 to +5.0 must be entered manually. As you modify settings, you can update an existing record or enter a new record with new date and preset name so you can keep track of previous settings if you need to return to them or reference them for any reason. This database was designed around a 5 band Optimod 8200 running version 3.0 software. If you use a 2-band model or have earlier software on your unit, you can modify the fields and pop up menus as needed. There are no provisions for initial system settings, only processor settings. System settings, once preformed, like input gain, balance, analog verses AES/EBU and pilot level do not need to be changed except for an occasional tweak and are not stored as presets. This database is exactly what the Palm OS was invented for, giving you access to tremendous amount of data in the field. With the 3 FM stations I engineer for, I must keep track of these settings on 8 Optimod 8200's. If you find this database useful, I would like to hear from you as to any modifications you have done.
