Available MIP Genres

Use this to restrict mixing to the genre only. Note Genres are what MusicIP sees when scanning your music files so may mismatch with Logitech Media Server if
you have multiple genres.

You can further tweak the mix, the Betty Croker recipe, no idea its meaning is lost in time!

Auto Set "Play Other Songs In Album"

Dynamic Queuing

Only Queue a New Track if player is playing the last Track on the Playlist, this keeps the music going indefiniately without causing a huge playlist that can
slow things down.

SugarCube Wobble

The first result from MusicIP will be the closest match to the seed track. Wobbling adds a subtle tweak to the mix, randomly choosing from the recommended
tracks returned to give a slight change in direction but in the same general theme.

MusicIP Vintage Mode

All track selections returned from MusicIP are queued up, like the original MusicIP Mix. Note; Tracks with-in the returned results may be from the same album.

Override Shuffle

If Shuffle is turned on, disable it when mixing so that the MusicIP mix integrity is retained.
