Hello, is there a way to get Auto DJ to play a song that hasn't been played in a long time. For example, let's say I have songs that haven't been played since October of last year, can MusicBee's criteria choices know how to set this situation up. The next time I start Auto DJ i want it to put the songs I haven't played in a long time first in front of the songs I have played recently. So, every time I start Auto DJ, I don't have to worry about hearing newer songs and I can hear songs MusicBee hasn't loaded into the rotation from a long time ago.

MB doesn't keep track of the date a track has been played. It can only tell how many days it's been since it was last played. But this can not be applied to the Auto-DJ. Only to filters and auto-playlists.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

I drink on Saturday nights too.

Thanks for your reply. In the future, it would be really cool to have some sort of feature that tracks this type of data for Auto DJ.

Is what I said incorrect? I have the occasional adult beverage in the evening but I thought I was fairly coherent tonight.

Creating a Mixer playlist should be able to achieve this

You said MB doesn't keep the date the track has been played. But then in the next sentence you said it did know how many days since it was played (i.e. the date).

I know you know this, which is why I thought it was funny.

No harm meant.

MusicBee does appear to support direct application of custom filters in the AutoDJ section.
Favourite tune at the moment:   Dearly Beloved by Yoko Shimomura from the Kingdom Hearts soundtrack
