AIRCAST radio automation software  

The way it always should have been

AIRCAST is a light-weight, full-featured radio automation system for Microsoft Windows. It is targeted at small and medium-sized stations and for both terrestrial and Internet-based broadcast. It offers features often only found in some high priced, high-end professional packages. AIRCAST was designed to be as flexible and customizable as possible. It works with standard PC hardware, supports virtually any soundcard and offers an unbelieveable smooth integration with our AIRENCE mixers. You could see it as the ideal solution if you’re looking into upgrading your studio with a decent digital radio automation system perfectly matched with D&R’s AIRENCE and AIRLAB broadcast mixers.

- Powerful, rock-solid play-out system.
- Highly customized GUI with a clean and easy to use interface.
- Excellent support for standard PC and audio hardware, works over USB or with any DirectSound, WASAPI or ASIO compliant sound card.
- Various remote control mechanisms for fader start etc.,
- SQL-based audio database with built-in music scheduling optional.
- On-the-fly voice track recording.
- Built-in Internet streaming encoder with support for external sound processing plugins.
- And much more!

Playlist with Live Assist and Automation mode. The playlist contains all audio files that are going to be broadcasted during your show. The files can be played manually (live assist mode) or automatically (automation mode). You can toggle between these modes at any time.

In addition to ordinary audio files, AIRCAST supports a number of special items that can be added to the playlist, e.g. Internet streams (for re-broadcasting), dummy items (non-playable items that can contain texts, notes etc.) and containers (virtual items that contain an arbitrary number of other items – useful for advertisement breaks that consist of multiple spots) LIVE FEEDS Rebroadcast any line-in audio signal using the virtual Live Feed playlist elements.

The Cartwall can be used to play short jingles or other audio elements. The number of players/slots is technically unlimited. Cart sets/pages can be saved as favorites for quick access.

AIRCAST offers numerous features that makes the presenter’s life easy, helping him or her to produce a perfect show. For example, fixed times are supported in Automation mode, so items can be started automatically at given times. The anticipated starting times of all items are calculated and displayed continuously for perfect back-timing. During the intro/ramp of a song, a large countdown is displayed.

Using the Event Scheduler, you can execute arbitrary actions at scheduled times, e.g. insert news items or load the playlist for the next hour from an AIRCAST data base (DB). This makes it very easy to set up a 24/7 automated program.

Use the integrated Voice Track Recorder to record new voice tracks directly from the playout GUI and add them to the current playlist.

utilizes the BASS Audio Library for playback, which is known for its stability and flexibility and its excellent support for inexpensive standard PC hardware.

MP3, MP2, MP1, OGG, WAV, and AIFF file formats. Additional formats can be added through free BASS add-ons.

AIRCAST works with any DirectSound compatible sound card. WASAPI and ASIO SUPPORT In addition to DirectSound, WASAPI or ASIO can be used for low-latency audio playback and recording.

The stereo outputs of multichannel sound cards (even cheap onboard 5.1 cards) can be used separately for the players.

Playback for multichannel (4.0, 5.7, 7.1 etc.) audio files is supported for DirectSound, WASAPI and ASIO.

AIRCAST includes a built in streaming encoder that broadcasts the audio output of the players and/or a signal recorded from a soundcard input to any Shoutcast or Icecast compatible streaming server. Direct broadcast to the streaming server is supported even for PCs or servers that have no built-in audio hardware. You can broadcast the signal to multiple servers simultaneously, and use the Aircheck function to create audio files of the streamed signal (supported audio file formats subject to available codecs.)

In addition to the built-in effects, external sound processing plugins (in VST or Winamp DSP format) can be used in the encoder.

AIRCAST is an SQL-based database backend for managing your audio library and music schedules. Setting up an AIRCAST database is optional – you can just load your playlist from the file systems – but AIRCAST is much less powerful without it.

For standalone installations on a single PC, the AIRCAST database can use SQLite as the backend; all data is stored in a single file on your local hard disk then. And you do not have to install and maintain an SQL server. AUDIO LIBRARY Pointing it at your audio folders, the AIRCAST database will scan your hard drive for audio files and register them in the audio library. This is where all metadata about the items is stored, e.g. artist/title information, cue markers etc.

For each day and each hour, you can save a playlist (created manually or automatically through the Mini Scheduler) which is later grabbed and played by the play-out module.

AIRCAST D(ata) B(ase) includes the Mini Scheduler that creates random playlist or music logs based on freely configurable hour templates. You can also import play-lists generated by external music scheduling software (e.g. Powergold) or ad schedulers. Using hierarchical play-lists, you can set up multiple “playlist categories” (e.g. Music, Ads, Jingles), generated or import content for each category separately, and then merge everything into a common log. Play-lists that were generated through the Mini Scheduler can be edited manually at any time.

The Voice Track Recorder is also available in the database playlist editor, so you can record and insert voice tracks into any future playlist. THIRD PARTY DATABASES The flexible database layer of AIRCAST allows you to connect not only to the AIRCAST DB but also to databases from third-party vendors. A number of database types, e.g. iTunes, is supported out of the box.
