    New Version with bug Fixes

    Hello BW,

    Just wanted to let you know we have are working on Nextkast Daily. I am posting updates weekly and sometimes more often based on customer feedback and testing. We would love to hear constructive criticism or suggestions on what you like and don't like about the software.

    You can download a fully functional version that will run for 346 total hours with no limitations. I am also offering 1 hour phone support ( month of July ONLY) if you would like to try it and have some questions or need support.

    Thanks

    It does not dip per say, but it does do an auto gain on the mix, where both should be audible. I would try it and see what result you get. Let me know what you think.

    I use it with my sweeps on www.saDanceRadio.com and it works fine, but this may be attributed to the way my sweeps are produced...

    Thanks

    I'll give it a shot on Ubuntu /w wine later

    A BIG suggestion. There's a program for Debian Linux called POL. (Play on Linux). If your wine user loaded optimal settings for install.

    It automatically loads WINE settings preset to optimize your programs installation If you tried it, and tweaked in wine, and then listed it in the POL directory's, it would probably get a lot of attention, as the only decent rival of IDJC. Not that IDJC isnt cool (fairchild, the developer, is a genius), but everyone that's used IDJC usually hates having to play with JackD (visual version of Jack audio server, required for IDJC) and the Use of 3 Band Equalizer (Jammin) sometimes isnt worth the processor hogging and headache of routing (usually a lot of hair pulling, and trial and error in JackD, just to lose settings) ESPECIALLY for non 64 bit users that don't get the Jack2.0 audio server default installations.

    Just food for thought.

    But in the words of a younger generation... "respekt"

    Its a very sound program, and I haven't found a bug yet. Very thought out. I didn't try to break it with pushing settings, but I liked everything I saw, very low resource, and very strait to the point.

    Oh, and it worked on launch. Half the battle. The only thing your really missing is a payment plan. Like $20 a month for 5 months or something. $100 is a hefty bill (though reasonable) to spot on the dot, especially for "hobbycasters" like myself. Spouses never see it as $100, they see it as the total cost of our hobby over the year, including mixers, mics, ect.

    To try to convince a spouse $100 flat is a must, when were already paying for server use, licensing fees, and automation/backup software (I use S!RA).... that's a trick in itself.

    I have a wonderful wife who supports my hobby and she and my daughter in law bought me a Windows 8 Laptop coming soon delivered around the 22nd of this month. I told her I'd need at least 1TB or 700GB HDD, 8GB Ram and of course $300 for SAM. I didn't like the fact that it cost $300 and was told by a friend to try NextKast. I am a Progressive Rock (Album Rock), Classic Rock station and one of the things I noticed out of the box was that this software meets Album Rock standards for processing and its out of the box when you install it. SAM has poor audio out of the box and one has to buy either Stereo Tool or Breakaway Broadcast and set it to the Amsterdam setting to meet the Audiophile standard of most savvy Progressive Rockers. I was shocked to listen and now I can save the $200 extra dollars for SAM and the $100 for Stereo Tool or Breakaway for my Windows 8 Laptop. I am now a Beta Tester for NextKast and for my Album Rock station I would not run anything else on Windows 8 and even on my Windows 7 desktop I've been using this software. This is an audiophiles dream. Listen to my station when I'm Live and hear for yourself

    iTunes Press Radio>Classic Rock>Type L and look for The Legacy. More people need to try this program.

    Hey bro, if you want me to fix your custom content page up a little (the flash player page), I can do that. Free.

    Also I like your page, but would put the listen link in a <herf=> tag on that big flashy animation thing on your start page to link it to your custom content page (the flash player page) as thats the first impulse to click. When I first loaded the page, all I saw was the "chat" button, and ot took me a good 15-20 seconds, before my brain went into ,"hey, scroll down" mode.

    Stream sounds good!

    I'm using wix as my FREE web host. I also have one with 000webhost which does allow html. If you know how to do it with Wix I 'd love to make my site better. We could make it look better as well. I should put the listen link on top. I'll try and change those two links around. Glad you love the stream.

    The stream licensing page should be customizable if I remember right. I can add some script real quick so it actually makes your wik's page drop down.

    Then for the blank area, I can make that text scipt pop up in between. should be pretty quick.
