Hello I was wondering if anybody could help me

 

I have my studio as I would like it at the moment, im only 15 I have a mic and mixer, keyboard and computer etc.

 

I was wondering if anybody knew of some hardware that connects to the computer with buttons.

 

I would like to be able to assign each button a track (Usally a song or shout)

 

If there are any of these could you please link me

 

Thanks Ben

Hi Ben, Welcome to BW

 

Not sure if this is what your looking for but you can check it out

Thanks for that I will look further into it.

 

What I more meant was some software that allows me to assign tracks to a hardware button, upon pusing the button the track will play, much like a digital mixer with the buttons to play, pause and stop the song.

Ok I think I know what you you are talking about something like Zara Radio

 

Go to Johny C's site http://ragfm.com

 

Click on -> Links Button (Left side of page)

 

Then Click on -> Radio Software

 

Then Download -> ZaraRadio (Radio Automation Software)

 

That will do what your looking for.

The only software / hardware to my knowledge who is able to do this is BPM Studio ...

Mostly used during dj sets

- songs (MP3) are updated into a laptop

- by using hardware (play, pitch etc) a dj can play all tracks including some presets of SFX elements

examples hardware (images)

As Bill said download ZaraRadio from my site.

Zara has 9 buttons at the bottom where you can drop files in to play. There are 10 banks of 9 files. You play the files by using the number keys on your keyboard. What I use is a stand alone num pad which I have remaped with software for all the funtions of Zara. I also have a jingle player on my web site which you can use a mouse. You can find them at http://ragfm.com , go to links then Radio software.

Like everyone has said. ZaraRadio has this function. You will need to buy some kind of midi keyboard to run each of these sounds if you want something physical to touch. I think SAM Broadcaster also has a "jingle pad", and I'm it must be able to link it to keys on a midi keyboard (?).

 

At the station where I work we have a pad like this, ours say DAVID but that may be because of our automation system (DIGAS). The closest I could come with a google-search is this: https://cars2.ebay.com.au/UMD-KMX128-Custom-8x16-Retail-POS-Keyboard-TMC-KMCV-C15_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQitemZ350222995076

 

Hope this helps :-)
