Essentially, be able to set fade and mix times, or stop a track earlier than the length of the MP3.
Why is this even being voted on? This is a very important feature for any station
Idea: Also include the ability to flag tracks as "No Fade" for those that require a cold, hard start. Otherwise, the introductory vocal or hit would be missed by the fade. The flag would tell the system to start it at full volume regardless of the other cross-fade settings
Some automation systems automatically seek out the silent parts of tracks and place markers for both the In and Out cues. The DJ can then go in and adjust the marker by frames/milliseconds to get the timing more accurate. The system generated cue point might cut off a note or noise that is part of the song, so it's good to be able to adjust each one as needed.
Somewhere in the edit track section, the ability to toggle the fade in and/or fade out for an individual track. That would allow the system to see when a song is either a cold start or a cold out, and bypass the cross fader when needed.

Recommend a mix point editor similar to the one in Shoutcast.
My suggestion is that Live365 add a feature to trim files in the library, with a play button so that you can hear what the file would sound like if you were to trim it. There should also be another option in a combobox, called Clipping, which plays the file as if it was trimmed, but doesn't actually cut the original file. The start and end markers should be in an edit field, example 3:25:000, for 3 minutes, 25 seconds, and Milliseconds.
I agree with the suggestion about also being able to set a track to No Fade. This is important for ads, for example, where fade ins and fade outs aren't wanted. Also, in and out cue markers should be able to be set at any point in a track, not just at the start or end. That way, the voiceover (e.g., song title, artist, DJ comment, etc) can be placed within a song, for example, at a point where there's no singing.

I'd be ecstatic if I could set a point at which the next element will start, generally referred to as the "EOM" (end of media) marker, after which a 3-second fade is applied. That'll clean up segues and work with cold, cold-fade and fade endings. I'm not in favor of letting automation do fade-ins & fade-outs beyond what I just described. The beginning of a song should always be started at full volume, in my opinion. I currently have crossfade duration set at 7 and type at logarithmic. The station is still not as tight as I'd like it, but a few cold-to-cold segues are a train wreck, depending on the amount of trailing silence.
