StationPlaylist Studio Pro
Studio is our on-air broadcast playback software for the studio, providing
useful features for assisting the DJ during live shows, and for unattended
automation with our StationPlaylist Creator track scheduler.
Any DJ can use this software. An uncluttered screen and large control buttons
makes this one of the easiest to use broadcasting applications available.
Studio takes the work out of managing multiple players. Studio manages
and controls multiple players internally for such purposes as automatic voice
track / song intro overlapping. Plus an advanced intelligent crossfader means
that all tracks mix together perfectly with no human intervention.
Streaming your station on the Internet in multiple codecs is simple using Studio.
Studio Pro supports all the features listed below such as logging of spots and commercials,
fail safe redundancy, and voice track overlapping. Studio Pro works best with Creator
Pro for a complete professional broadcasting solution.
