    OK, here is my take on the Live Mode revisions.

    http://a.parsons.edu/~livesupport/designs/images/livemode.jpg


    The user opens the Live Mode palette by selecting it from the
    application menu across the top of the screen. This opens the palette
    directly underneath the Master Palette. The user has the option of
    having the palette fill then entire screen or shrinking it to any size
    they wish. I think both options will be useful.

    The Master Palette remains on top in my design. I think it should
    remain above the Live Mode palette, for the sake of overall consistency
    of experience between Live Mode and other modes of the program. Roberts
    design integrates some of the Master Palette elements into the Live
    Mode Palette and leaves out other, and I think this is sort of
    confusing, better to leave things in a consistent place, even if there
    is some redundancy between the two.

    The Live Mode Palette looks pretty much like the one Robert created,
    except it leaves the Master Palette elements out, and leaves them in
    the Master Palette.

    When the User opens the LIve mode palette, they will not be live until
    the click the THIS SHOW IS ON THE AIR button. That leaves them free to
    assemble their show and make any preparations they need to before going
    on the air. The on the air indicator on the master palette indicates
    that something is on the air - either a live broadcast or a prerecorded
    show, or even somebody else's live show. the THIS SHOW IS ON THE AIR
    button in the LIve Mode palette indicates the THAT USERS show is on the
    air in LIVE MODE. When pressed the button will change to THIS SHOW IS
    OFF THE AIR.

    I left the "i" button and the "x" button in the windows, because I
    couldn't see how songs were going to be deleted otherwise, and that
    maybe the "i" button could be useful for the operator to call up quick
    facts about hte song they're playing. If we decide we don't want these,
    we can just take em out.

    I hope this makes sense, and if not, let me know, so I can revise again.

    thanks everyone,
