Hi peter and Mandelm2001 i can see the logic request, Mandelm2001 Peter gave you a solution but this means a lot of work on your part, i can see this might be a need for others running differently.
In my case all my songs have immediate start and absolute minnimum end without loosing reverb at end of songs.
Now if i was to want delay start as the software is i could easily use the delay start feature and it would work perfectly because i do not use Autoplay, BUT you are using Autoplay and a lot of people are using a combination as well and because this feature only works with songs that dont use Autoplay it has a very limited use.
Peter is there an easy way to have a option in the delay menu to turn on delay between all songs meaning if you choose to use Autoplay you have a choice as there would be a lot of people that use a combination of manual and Autoplay combination.
I do not need this myself as i run my shows simply but i can see its usefullness for others that operate differently like Mandelm2001.
Perhaps in SONG PROPERTIES have a switch that enables/disables the master delay setting for each song Autoplay setting to still operate but inserting the master delay setting making it possible to create your delay requirements quickly and effectively and achieve your personal needs without overcomplicating it. You might not have individual song start delay setting time period but at least you have a master time delay setting that is flexible in being activated for any song you choose.
sorry i am writing as im thinking
I can see an issue as you might not want delay on some playlists but want it on others so you need to have this as a choice in playlists, its almost like you need it to work exactly like the Autoplay feature but labeled Delaystart.
My brain if fried.
Peter il leave it to you sorry for my two cents worth.
