Looking for new radio automation software for a charity (not-for-profit, amateur) radio station at the moment, and of course the time’s come to take a close look at mAirList.
mAirList’s capabilities seem extensive and impressive, but I haven’t been able to work out its capabilities for remote DJs.
We have a single ‘proper’ studio for the station (ie a small room with a microphone, computer, CD players and a mixer!), but some DJs would like to do their shows live from their homes, essentially from a remote home studio, using music on their own computers. (Others just need voice tracking, but I’ve already seen that mAirList can do that.)
We need software that can present a single view to remote DJs - so that they can log on, initiate a graceful handover (request / authorise) if a human DJ is already on air, or automatic handover if there’s no-one on air, and then stream live audio to the station’s studio for broadcast, preferably using the Opus codec - all the while presenting the same view of songs on the playlist they would get if they were at the station’s studio. In other words, a basic multi-studio, single-output setup.
Can mAirList handle this, and if so, what licences would be required?
Thanks very much
