Looking for a complete radio playout and automation system for your community radio station, RSL or small commercial station? Look no further, we have a complete solution ready to run out-of-the-box with no additional setup required! Just load your music (storage for over 5,000 songs included) and you're ready to go.

Features:

 

 

  • Overlaps multiple audio files so segue two songs and a liner; or voice-track during automated periods for a professional live-sounding output
  • Integrated voice-track editor - voice track files will duck the songs
  • Automatic SayTime and Temperature - use different voices at different times
  • Optional Song-Intro protection - have your liners & segues automatically positioned so that they don't crash the vocals!
  • Dynamic HTML generation with built-in FTP client and direct support for Shoutcast Now Playing updates
  • Windows Media Scripting Support
  • RDS (RBDS) Track and Title export
  • Background Recording, with the ability to play back while still recording!
  • Pitch Shift or Time Stretch & Squeeze without changing the pitch (using the supplied TSX multi-output audio card)
  • Interfaces with third-party trigger and relay units (24-way incoming trigger controller supplied)
  • Controls Broadcast Tools audio routers
  • Optional Touch Screen, or use with a standard Keyboard & Mouse
  • Comprehensive Macro command language
  • Imports Traffic & Music Logs and can also merge logs chronologically

Using the supplied 24-way input trigger controller you can interface the automation system with your mixing console fader and button starts (or trigger local breaks from satellite relays; wire fader start; activate background recordings etc).

The highly acclaimed Simian automation software comes pre-installed on a specially configured Dell computer with 3-year on-site business warranty.

lol i'm just putting it up there as an article for people to take a dig at to be honest :) its an over priced piece of junk and it could be built for a fraction of the cost.. i personally have a multi-screen setup with sam caster with ample mics and such in a spare room that has been customized into a mini studio what will accommodate 3 presenters comfortably.

Have a look at this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Zoostorm-7877-1021-Pentium-Operating-System/dp/B006ZINQK2/ref=pd_rhf_gw_p_t_1 It's the one i bought recently and works like a charm as a playout/studio PC and it's not likelyto break the bank either!

Thats a nice looking cheapy but no operating system ? that kinda sucks

 

Just stick your current operating system on it as long as you aren't going to be using the current one again all will be fine.

 

Mind i have Ubuntu on mine with Virtual Box running the windows side of thing and it's playing nicely!

Does it have sound cards etc in it or do you have to add them as an extra ?

 

Yes it has onboard soundcards plus slots for adding another via PCI This is the second Zoostorm PC i've owned great brand for anyone on a budget last one gave up after 7 years. Does the job for what i need.
