Looking For Automation Software

Recommended Posts

I manage a station for a church and I've been considering going totally "live" for a while. Currently I use the AutoDJ from the provider with the CentovaCast interface, and the couple of times a week I go live for church services I use SamCast straight from the board. My station is fairly complex in that I have nearly 70 short feature shows (1 to 4 minutes) that are broadcast daily at specific times, and this is not counting the music playlists, station ID's and promos and other longer shows. There are also different show schedules during the weekend. A few of these shows I have to load on a daily basis since they are produced daily, but most shows I can get a weeks worth or a months worth in advance. I can set Centovacast up to run for several days in advance with the exception of the shows I deal with daily. I usually set up the coming weeks shows on Saturday mornings, then set up the coming weekend shows during the week as I have time. What is some free or inexpensive automation software that will give me the schedule control of CentovaCast but give some more features like crossfades and such...TIA.
