Nerd alert. 

Dev had a discussion this morning about his new jingles, and also mentioned why he didn't use the old ones. 24 mins into this morning's show.

Annoyingly, Alice Levine is still using old imaging. I mean seriously.... :bored:

I'm with you on this!

Another thing that is annoying is The Official Chart is still using old voices... They even used old voices for the trail that went out on Friday! (here it is if you missed it https://www.dropbox.com/s/zhjcb2qbu7so7xg/Chart Trail 10-02-2017.mp3?dl=0)

The new imaging seems to have been rolled out across all the DJs now, but it does leave Newsbeat, the chart and Dance Anthems standing out like a sore thumb with the old voices.

Maybe one day.

Dance Anthems has had the odd new vocal on there I've notice, but I agree the others need to be updated. Newsbeat especially! Since Greg took over the chart I've never been a fan of the vocals, I don't know what they did to them but they sound bloody awful!

Another set of Power Intro demos has been published, this time by Contraband Media who created the R1 Breakfast Show imaging. They have already made 100 intros! :shock:

Are IMGR still doing these then or is Contraband Media taking over then? I've heard a few already from them but most of them I've heard are IMGR productions.

These intro's are already giving me 1tros memories.

The article sort of suggests that it's for the old songs. DNCE 'Toothbrush' isn't that old though surely?

I noticed, particularly on the LOLathon, a few on older songs, and thought they sounded really good actually.

A bit disappointing that neither IMGR or Contraband Media could create any Power Intros for Big Weekend artists other than ones from the headliners, Katy Perry and Kings Of Leon this year. I heard a fair variety last year so it's a shame they didn't make an effort to do as much this year.

Pure Jingles have uploaded a demo of some beds they've made for Radio 1, with new voiceovers. Don't think I've heard them on air yet however.

One of them is used for "Tune of The Week(end)"... not sure about the others though.

Sounds like the Live Lounge imaging has been updated with the new voices, theme is the same as before.

That pretty much just leaves Dance Anthems and the 10 Minute Takeover surely?

Oh, and the chart.

The Live Lounge got updated a while ago but when I last listened the intro before the actual live performance still had the old voices on. Dance Anthems with Greg has new voices mainly, it's just Danny's show that doesn't. I'm more bothered about the chart now!

Scott Mills played a new bed on his show today around 1:13pm. Would like to see new updates and the original lot are brilliant as it is.

EDIT: Now he's played one of the new PURE Jingles bed's at 3:23pm.

The 10 Minute Takeover got an update a couple of weeks ago too. Dance Anthems next maybe? The imaging sticks out like a sore thumb on a Saturday teatime.

Oooh Adele played a new ID at the start of the show today with the Where It Begins stuff in it again. I really am loving the work Wish Buddah, IMGR, Pure Jingles and Contraband Media are doing to the imaging with regular updates to the beds's and ID's. It's fresh and not too repetitive as well which makes it great to listen to. I think this is the best Imaging Radio 1 has had for years!

The one Adele played at 4am today was actually played by Scott too last week after Bangers. He's played some of the Where it Begins idents after Bangers which I really like

Actually got the chance to listen to Friday's Dance Anthems last night live. The new imaging sounded fantastic during the mixes. Wonder why the intro still has the 2014 voiceovers?
