    new Internet Radio Automation Software FREE for NOW!

    Hello I would like some feedback on a very easy to use Internet Radio Automation software. goto www.nextkast.com to download and view the quick start video.

    Let me know your thoughts and ideas on what is missing to make this a simple internet radio automation winner. The software is very simple and does not use any database system.

    You can hear it in action at www.saDanceRadio.com.

    Thanks

    Had a quick play with it. Its got the makings of being a great playout software system. Maybe add being able to add an mu3 playlist and play more than one jingle.(though you could get away with adding them as categories)
    Didnt like the way it copys the mp3's to an other folder. A good idea if you mark the intro's eg and it dosnt touch the main mp3, but could be a pain if you have 1000's of mp3s. Some sort of programmable TOTH events would be great as well. Some jingle buttons maybe for live assist.
    Otherwise as I said it has the makings of being a great piece of software

    Thanks for the responses,

    Sorry, probably no Linux support, although if there is a huge demand might consider a re-write.

    johny c. I will take you suggestions seriously, currently tryint to put together a TOTH system and implement Jingle buttons.

    Will have an update soon.

    Thanks again for the feedback!

    As I commented on the youtube, it looks fairly reasonable until you spot the text to speech, no radio station that wants to sound professional would ever use that so it is wasting valuable space where something more useful could go

    I think the TTS speech feature is pretty cool. It's just a case of finding a professional sounding speech engine that is more human sounding. It can fill the gaps where presenters are not available and yet still output a show that interacts with listeners.

    Thanks for the response.. now I am confused, I removed the TTS in the version that will be released later this month.. Maybe we will put it back in for a while. It uses MS Speech, so you can get a more realistic voice by changing your MS Text to Voice Default voice in windows. Hope to have a new version by end of the month, thanks to all who have sent feedback, it is greatly appreciated.
