Simple Automation ideas for Mac


Recommended Posts

I'm currently running an internet station that uses Centova Cast for the automation.

I have been asked to set up a near-field FM radio station for a large event. The event producer would like to have commercials and announcements scattered in between the music. I am primarily Mac based, but I could get access to a Windows machine if I absolutely have no other option.


All I'm really looking for is simple, cheap automation software that will play music in a playlist and fire off a commercial or 2 at regular intervals. Is there anything like that and that isn't too pricey?


Currently I'm considering just using iTunes and manually setting commercials within the playlist, but I'd like something a little more automatic. Any ideas?

If you have Centovacast with Auto DJ, you can make schedule the commericals / Station Liners to play either at assigned times and / or after "xx" songs.


If you want some with more capabilities, try SAM from Spacial Audio.

I'm looking for something that I can use for an near field FM broadcast and not web based. I only mention Centova Cast because I've used for internet radio and like the features. However, I'm not going to have net access for this special event. I'm going to need to connect a laptop (preferably Mac) to a transmitter.
