What makes Airtime Pro the best internet radio solution?
Audio files are your building blocks for playlists, and our online broadcast software Airtime Pro supports MP3, Ogg, WAV, FLAC and AAC formats. Simply drag and drop from the Airtime Media Library to create playlists that will form the basis of your shows. With our intelligent library, you’ll always be able to find what you’re looking for quickly and easily. See more Airtime Pro features below.
Airtime Pro’s user-requested smart blocks offers you a great way to speed up your programming. Specify criteria (like genre or time since last play) and Airtime Pro’s radio automation software will populate that block according to your pre-set conditions, allowing you to focus more on your primetime content.
Airtime allows you to drag-and-drop audio files from your library into playlists. Playlists are the building blocks of shows. Once made, they stay in your library for reuse. Our visual cue editor allows you to quickly edit any silence off the end of tracks, ensuring you’re always on the air. Our in-browser preview also lets you cue up your content beforehand, leaving no room for mistakes.
- Intuitive drag and drop interface
- Visual control of cue in/out and fade in/out points for tracks and playlists
- Preview tracks and edit metadata in-browser
- Download option for easier sharing and editing
- Automatic cut-off for shows longer than scheduled length
Our intuitive design means just about anyone can quickly navigate Airtime Pro’s scheduling tool. Choose from week, month or day views to focus in on the finer details of your programming. Additionally, our colour-coded schedule events help DJs find their content quickly. That means more time for creating quality content.
- Easy to use interface with similarities to Google Calendar
- Drag and drop shows into new time slots
- Day, week and monthly view available
- Easily editable daily, weekly, bi-weekly and monthly repeat settings
- Colour-coded content blocks for easy identification
Show Linking and Repeating
Show linking allows you to create recurring shows that share the same template. Creating a smart block in one show and linking it to others will dynamically generate scheduled content for each subsequent show based on the criteria of the original. This is great for things like “overnighters” where you might not want to program specific content but you certainly don’t want to go off air.
Live Broadcast Solutions
Live Show Editing
Need to get a piece of breaking news on air ASAP? No problem, just upload it and drop it right into the show that’s currently on air. The ‘Now Playing’ screen allows you to rearrange your schedule in real time.
Airtime supports live input from almost any Icecast-compatible third party software, like Mixxx for example. This is perfect for seamlessly cutting from your scheduled content to an on-location interview, live DJ set, or any other real-time event.
Airtime has two levels of input stream priority: Show Source, which enables a specific person to stream in during their own show, and Master Source, which can override Show Source if necessary. If neither type of live input is available, Airtime will fall back onto Scheduled Play.
