Hi James,

First of all, nice forum....glad to be here.

Radiohost is also a very good radioautomation program, maybe a bit expensive but one of the best Ive tried, and god knows how many Ive tried out.

http://www.radiohost.com

There is a free broadcast private edition download too.

When I discovered the BW site I was immediately struck by its similarity to the Ots Users Forum. Thought there must be some connection but, to my surprise, I found nothing about Ots. All the talk seems to be about SAM Broadcaster etc.

My shows are all produced using the latest version OtsAV DJ Pro-Classic, and I am completely satisfied. The Ots is very easy to use; so I can concentrate on my links and not on being a sound engineer. The sound quality is awesome, and the extra information saved on Ots files are worth their weight in gold! I won't mention the beat-mixing facility because I don't use it, but if you are doing anything for a hip-hop station...

Anybody else got any comment about Ots?

Damn i really wish I knew about all of this FREE auotmation software back when I started my station and bought sam for $200 somethin dollars! That was an un neccesary 200 somethin dollars I coulda spent on somethin like a domain name that my station website doesnt have or voiceovers from Rick Party which I wish my station coulda had. I cant get the domain name now anyways cuz the copycat station with the same exact name took it. THAT is why my station is changin into 99.9 the beat in December, if u didnt know why! i cant stay in business with a more popular copycat station with the same exact name!

I have used Myriad in the past at a station I worked at. It is VERY VERY good indeed. Uses 4 sound cards, so you can run it like 4 decks through the desk PLUS those cart machines on top. The best software i used for playout, but it is very expensive. You will be looking at about 3000 ($4500) for a version.

Yeah we just recently purchase Digilink, and honestly for the $400 I invested in it, it comes with their satellite switcher free of charge, pre programmed with the timer so that when it comes time to renew, I'll know, and to date the only bad thing I've encountered is the onboard sound cards on the switcher need to be wired with a 1/8th jack to plug into my Sound Blaster for all the goodies, but hey on the good side, is once that is done, I can hook up a regular jack for cue output, so I can do a whole bunch of stuff with Satellite feeds and the whole nine yards. And if things look good in a few months, we'll be investing in their console that comes with it, so we won't have to worry about that wiring. I'm actually talking to an engineer right now to get some things done in the future to hook up a satellite dish, and if I've done my research right, I'm going to use my old DirecTV dish to get all the feeds

That would be really cool if you were successfully able to do that. Last time I talked with an engineer about that though, he said that you need a very wide satellite for picking up audio only content because audio only content runs on a different type of signal than tv. He said that normally the dish needs to be at least 8 or 9 feet wide.

You might want to paint over the direct tv logo too ;)

WayneOwens
12-22-2008, 04:50 AM
LOL Karl,

I would paint over the logo for sure, and they say you normally need a 3.5 meter dish for audio, but anythings possible, I'm gonna try, and if it works, I'll definitely let you all know

WayneOwens
12-23-2008, 01:56 AM
Yeah it is only $100 a month, or you can pre pay for 6 or 12 months at a time and save some dough, I arranged it with them to pay for 4 months, because if things work out right around tax time and the economy looks stable enough, I'm gonna buy their ARC-10 console to control my on air PC, so it's well worth a look into

I am absolutely in love with Zara Radio. I was looking for something for my internet show that played random tracks from a specified folder for a long time. I downloaded Zara radio, and never really gave it a chance until recently when I had some downtime. Gave it a go and it works out perfectly!
Now when I'm in break for the show, it just plays a playlist of random files (from folders I point it to for each element) rather than just playing the same playlists over and over again each week, which got really tired.

I'm also going to try to implement this for the network my show broadcasts on, so that all of the remote shows can connect to the content server, and Zara Radio on the content server will pull the live show from a Shoutcast DNAS it's running. The way it's done now, is clunky, and causes listeners to have to re start their stream and it just stinks. We have to manually kick the content server from the stream server, so that the live shows can connect to the stream server directly.. at least with this new theory the content server will always be connected to the stream server, and we can have smooth transitions between live content, and automation.

Thanks Zara Radio.. you're going to make this a real possibility for us! heh

THREETEN RADIO
01-30-2009, 01:21 PM
Can zara radio do this? I thought only Direttore could (as far as free playout systems go) I thought with zara you had to make a playlist.......am I missing something here?

Bizzacore
01-30-2009, 01:59 PM
you actually do have to build a playlist, BUT you can build a playlist of 'radom' tracks.

Here's how my break playlist looks right now:

Segment Ender
Network Promos
Sponsors
Network Promo
Show Promo
Network Promo
Pre-Recorded Bit
Show ID
Ramp Music

...and they're all just random tracks, so that it'll play a different track from that specific folder that I told it to play from every time it runs.

Also, like I said I planned on using that for the network automation, I plan on building a 1 hour playlist, and just having it repeat, because there's no real reason to have to build different playlists every day for 24 hours. It's a stand-up comedy network, and the only time things differ is when there's a live show on, which I can schedule into the EVENTS section. I planned on something like a network promo ever 2 files (because they can run for a while) and schedule an event that at the top of the hour it fires off a network ID. Those won't be scheduled, but the folder that keeps them will be so that the same one doesnt play over and over again.

It's almost like building a rotator in ENCO's DAD system. You build a rotator, then you pick and choose what goes into the rotator, and itll just fire off the random tracks that you chose for it. Zara will only fire off the random tracks from the folder you specify. So the more tracks you have in the folder, the less likely a chance of a repeat for a while.

THREETEN RADIO
01-30-2009, 07:38 PM
Ah... very similar to Direttore then. I'll have a good look at that, only really used zara as a backup and made playlists but will try what you have done.

I know it's already been mentioned in this thread, but www.rivendellaudio.org - This is a fantastic professional & robust automation system, which best of all is free! Linux only though :(

If you got more money than sense, or like us were lucky enough to buy the entire contents of a closed down radio station for a few pennies I'd highly recommend Enco DAD (www.enco.com) - Used by many networks here in the UK (TLRC, UTV etc) - Very robust, and perfect for automating every single event in your day. Although, replacement soundcards can be VERY expensive as they're realtime Mpeg 2 decoders.

It's also touch-screen friendly, and has GPIO interfaces for taking news feeds (IRN etc) - Though, the support is expensive at around 1000 per year, and it doesnt come with any playlist management software, you have to get that seperately :(

Bizzacore
06-15-2009, 01:55 PM
I can attest to DAD from Enco being a pretty awesome play out system. I use it at the station I work at.

We're not using it to its full capability, and eve though there are things that we do at the station that we probably could automate with DAD, it handles what we do with it pretty damn well ^_^

We have five over the air radio stations all using Zara Radio; I have tried and used others like:SAM 3, DRS 2006, Sonicart Winamp with SQRsft crossfader. For the price; Zara Radio can't be beat, and of all the units so far it's about the only one worth paying for. I have run Zara on computers running XP with only 128mb without a glitch; and old computers resued from the junk yard; running WIN98SE down to 350mhz all glitch free.

http://www.radiobrandy.com/image/XMTR_Shack_Studio-220-en.jpg

Even our transmitter shack studio has Zara installed and running as a back up to the main studios. Playlist are already built up for each format; including jingles and liners just in case.

A friend of mine, went for the pay version of Zara Radio and found it still needs to be debugged a bit. It also requires allot more horsepower to make it fly; so those homeless computers running 98Se or ME will be of little use.

Three Ten Radio sounds great; not your standard issued radio station. I just heard a song that I have not heard in decades.

I use the KWDautomation system at the moment, just because of its great compatability with Icecast (BIG THANKS to the KWD team for putting the time and scripting into making it work for me)

Ok heres how this works, just roll with me on this.. VERY SLICK.

http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee69/Brutish/Loggin.jpg


Your typical log-in screen. You will be given a custom log-in depending on what you want to do. You can setup account access for station manager/DJ's/owners.


http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee69/Brutish/AutoDJ.jpg

You will be redirected to this screen upon logging in. Dont get overwelmed, this is just the status of whats going on air and the progress of the song.

http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee69/Brutish/Content.jpg

How easy is it to upload content? Select the folder you want to upload to (seen on the left) Then hit the browse button. Select the track, upload it, and your set.

http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee69/Brutish/Clocks.jpg

For DJ's: Want to do a show, but dont want to deal with re-arranging your music? Clock wheel makes this easy. Just drag the tabs from the right into an order that you want your clock wheel. Save the Clock wheel.

http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee69/Brutish/music.jpg

Dealing with the content is MUCH more easier in your music playlist as well. Do it all through your folder. You can even set a voicetrack in your edits to play before or after a song (In case you want to say the band is on a tour, or whatever)

http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee69/Brutish/Schedualclock.jpg

What do you do with the clock once you schedule it? Simply select the block you want your show to air at.




So no more streaming from homes needed, no more stream drops, no more headache of worrying how to edit song data.


You don't have to set up the server for relays, it just sends it right from the server. Multiple bit rate options as well. SO, host with the same host, but just use their automation. A VERY nice setup.


http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee69/Brutish/AutoDJ.jpg


See all those + signs by the songs, you can add content (announcements) ect ON THE FLY!




Hows that for a cool concept? Also has optional FTP for quick bulk song uploads, if you dont want to use the GUI.

It is a great bit of kit, I have been testing it for a long time now (since last year) and have been working with the team with reports etc.., once it has the feature I am looking for, Karl knows what, then for me it will be the ultimate system in my opinion.

Brutish Sailor

Ok, you use it too, so I got a question for you...

On the filler feature, what do you usually add in there? Do you just leave different chops of samples and level them out? Or do you put in some ambiance? How do you integrate that for use. You got to fill me in sometime.


If I could find some DJ's that will stay consistent, this program is a lifesaver. I have had TONS of people ask to DJ, but their schedule never pans out, They don't know how to function without SAM correcting their mp3 adjustments, or just not interested in the whole storyline bit."

Its like they ask ,"What do I need to stream?"

I tell them ,"NOTHING, do you have Mp3gain and a mic? Thats it"

THREETEN RADIO
06-22-2009, 12:44 PM
In the filler content I use my "80s" folder so if it has to choose a song it is one from there but ideally I should create another folder and have a certain amount of tracks that are NOT anywhere else, that way something won't get repeated.

Just added DRS2006 to a computer running Vista; now I remember what I don't like about it: No Drag & Drop! We run a top of hour newscast that's delayed by an hour to keep things tight; with Zara Radio we can just drop the file in the play list or schedule it. With DRS2006 we have to run it through the audio manager; one big hassle.

I actually love it!

It makes managing a station simple from any internet connection anywhere in the world! I mean, c'mon. If a jock lives in Ohio, and you're streaming from Vancouver the guy from Ohio doesn't need any crazy software downloads, or anything. Just record straight up via the browser window and he's voice tracked!

As with anything though, there are a few things I'd like to see included one day to make working with a live show easier to integrate (you have a new PM btw hehe) but other than that, this thing does it all! It manages your music scheduling, clock building, ad campaigns, keeps track of your ad dollars, provides you with invaluable listener stats, and reports AGAIN, all from a web browser. I call it amazing! haha I sound like a friggin infomercial but seriously I've already told at least 4 people about this thing!

Mine is web based and doesn't tie up my computer. www.shoutautomation.com (http://www.shoutautomation.com)

Just saw the site and I've made a request for a trial.

Looks VERY impressive - even before I've started. I've been around radio for 15 years and I'm very fussy with automation, but it looks almost perfect.

The one thing I would like to see (and I've put in my trial request) is the ability on the site to set up an auto-upload (or download).

For example a site like lpfmnews.net supply a regular news bulletin, with an MP3 link on their site. I would like my automation site to be able to search for a link i give it, at 10 mins to the hour every hour to grab the latest news from that link - so I have hourly news (or once a day for finance reports, entertainment news, segments, etc...)

If your able to do that - (which I think would be easy to develop - just use automateFTP software!) this would seriously kick-butt and you would not only have a customer - you'd have a salesmen telling all my radio buddies about it.

Old Faithful that aint been used in a few years is coming out the original Baldy PC funny enuff even with the upgrades it still does better than the stuff ive invested in!

Hi there,

I just found this forum through Google. I am a Mac user and like to add "MegaSeg Pro" (www.megaseg.com (http://www.megaseg.com)) to the list - if it has not already been mentioned somewhere else. I use Megaseg as Player and Mic-Control-SW for my shows on www.secondradio.de (http://www.secondradio.de). MegaSeg has quite advanced playlist automation functions, including rules and things. Unfortuntely it does not have a broadcast server, like Shoutcast or Icecast. But on Mac the shareware "Nicecast" as individual software solution is THE standard. Rock solid and very versatile - it allows access to all the VST and AU sound plugins you might have. Actually Mac OSX offers quite a lot of reasonable quality plug-ins, like multiband compressors, all kinds of EQs, side chain compressors, etc.. as part of the standard installation. This is a widely unknown feature set of OSX. I also have some professional sound plugins, which I use for music production. Also these are fully accessible by Nicecast and can be integrated in the audio process chain. SecondRadio.de uses the web-based "CentovaCast" for AutoDJ and scheduled broadcasts, when nobody is live on air. Therefore we don't need MegaSeg's versatile scheduling functions. But they are all there, which makes the big difference to the typical DJ players available out there. My complete setup runs on a Mac Mini driving two displays, one for MegaSeg, the other one for Nicecast, the Focusrite Saffire Mixer control and the Nicecast plug-ins. The picture below shows my colleague Sachse during a live broadcast from the "RezzDays 2011" in Berlin, Germany's biggest community event for virtual worlds.
52
For this event we used my Mac setup instead the SAM installations most other mods in SecondRadio use, as my setup is most versatile and works flawless. MegaSeg is not for free, it is even not cheap, but costs less than SAM and is really worth the money, I must say. SAM has an extraordinary set of features. But honestly, the best is to switch off all sound plug ins right from the beginning. This massively improves the sound! ;-) Of course you can use one or the other with very careful settings, but the defaults just sound terrible to my ears. On the other hand even the standard plug-in set provided with Mac OSX sounds quite OK. The combination of Megaseg Pro and Nicecast for me is the Mac alternative to Windows-only SAM.

I am happy to share my experience with MegaSeg and Nicecast with you, if anybody is interested.

Regards
Rush

for the best automation software it was a big clue for me, i tried several programs so i came out with a little experince on that, i've been using sam broadcaster since ever but i got bored from it cause everything in it must be programmed throug the firebird data base or MySQL, that was a big issue especially when you manage to stream advertisements so you must be attenention to what's automatically be streamed based upon the code you made, so i had to look for a substitute, i've found to popular programs which are BSI SIMIAN and Jazzler, jazzler is the most handy program upon all, it categorize everything as u wish from the music u want to broadcast to jingle, spots, ads and even voice tracks, it's automation program is the best of all very handy as i said, but i came to a problem wich the timing of the breaks wich is programed only to come every 30 minutes so u cann't stream ads automatically in a specified time if you want, so i came to SIMIAN which is a big clue for me till now, i always search for the best program but until now i couldn't reach to a final answer. any ideas for the best popular one which is used by the most FM Stations world wide?

I am a fan of Radio DJ http://www.radiodj.ro I find it has all the features I need, works really well, however the latest version does not support the Shoutcast DSP plugin but it works well using Edcast alongside it, apparently the next version of Radio DJ to be released will support plugins and will also contain voice tracking

RadioDJ as whole is a great Program and i have very few headaches with it, Unlike other Paid for software i could mention.

Its a pity the voice tracking will not be ready yet, even if it you could just drop mp3 files straight into the playlist without having to import them first it would be a useful way of recording links.

The problem with shoutcast is how often the plugin crashes, if someone can make a stable version it would be fantastic.

I think what a lot of people need to cover when reviewing software here is specifically pros and cons and features they may have over others.

Case in point: As much as I love SAM, I have been looking off and on for suitable replacements that still do what I need. Unfortunately there are a couple key features that SAM does well which I have not been able to find in other automation software yet. These would be the built in PAL scripting engine which gives you virtually unlimited choices on HOW to automate your station to the tiniest detail. Second is the deeply ingrained use of a database for 98% of functionality combined with a good starter 'website' that allows you to put a lot of automated content on your website for your listeners that ties right into the automation.

As far as I have been able to determine across a wide swath of software I have looked at up to now, none offer these key features or at best do so as a dumbed down afterthought.

Vanlen
06-27-2012, 03:59 PM

The Gui looks great....typical of professional broadcast software used at commerical stations, but anything I see implies that you cannot schedule events or have much programming control over the music.

scott s.
04-14-2013, 02:08 AM
just playing with play it live tonight.....

love how easy it is to input a music folder. very quick and easy to do. also love how quick it is for search functions work and does it well.

The cons? far too limited in options. I want to create and set playlist taking audio from folders randomly. I can't do that. yes, some rotation is there for music, but no control for syndicated shows which have to be played in a certain order at a specific time or anything else that needs that control. shame really. That's what it is severely lacking.

A "nice to have option" is "hot keys" and configurable to the players to fire on pressing a specific cart player....be it quick cart or main player. This is pretty much standard on pro software. gets rid of the mouse, at least as an option. also would be nice to have a auto gain control built in to even out audio levels within the program

You don't need the count up timers on the main player. It adds to the clutter and is hard on the eye. The countdown timers are the only things you need.

I'll probably add it to my internet streams MCR computer, but only use it in live assist when someone is live. zararadio still my main full automation program.

I will. I was very impressed how well the program imported the 60,000 odd mp3s on initial test without jumping through hoops and frustration in learning a programming language or SQL databases. I'm a firm believer in being able to drag and drop new mp3s until folders for adding new music, syndicated shows, etc. It just makes sense for my use given the rather large library I am using.

I can recommend zararadio's events scheduling as a point of reference. It's easy, simple,flexible and works well for me. I program a play list every hour which picks random music cuts within a specific playlist. If I can have that flexability, that would be great!
