Integrating with Simian

Written by
Travis Bernard

You can connect a Simian automation system to Creek like this:

  1. Sign in to your Creek Control Panel as an admin and get the API key at Tools > Settings > Integration (tab) > API Key.

  2. Open the Program Settings of Simian. (You'll need to stop the audio before the menu option is enabled, else it will be greyed out.)

  3. Go to the Streaming tab: Settings

  4. For one of the custom URLs, enable it with the nearby checkbox (see screenshot above), and then enter this URL below. Make sure to replace the API key with yours.

    http://station-name.creek.fm/api/tracks/add?key=YOUR_API_KEY_HERE&artist=%artist%&title=%title%&year=%year%&album=%album%
    
  5. Enable the "Encode Stream Encoding Metadata" checkbox.

  6. Click OK to save the settings.

  7. Go to your Creek Control Panel > Tools > Tracks to make sure that tracks are coming in. Wait until the current song switches in Simian, pushing the new track to this API endpoint.
