Live Assist

Four live play modes.

Airtime assists live broadcast with on-the-fly drag-n-drop live scheduling, live stream rebroadcast and line-in record modes.

The Now Playing screen allows you to drag and drop scheduled audio to change playout at the last minute. Webstream rebroadcast also offers several ways to switch to an incoming live stream (from a phone or DJ programme for instance). Or, alternatively, set a show to Record and it switches on and records your line-in at the allotted time.

Smart Blocks

Dynamically generated playlists.

Much requested and now designed by the community, Airtime's smart blocks offer you a great way to speed up your programming. Simply enter parameters (like genre or last played) and Airtime will populate that block randomly according to your conditions.

Static smart blocks will save the criteria and generate the block content immediately. This allows you to edit and view it in the Library before adding it to a show. Dynamic smart blocks will only save the criteria. The block content will get generated upon adding it to a show. Set and forget!

Show Linking and Repeating

Link by link builds show to show.

Great improvement for those who create a lot of dynamic playlists: show linking. When multiple shows are linked, content that is scheduled in one show is scheduled in the others as well. By creating a dynamic playlist in one show and linking it, the playlist will be dynamically generated every time.

Stream Rebroadcast

May the source be with you.

Airtime can rebroadcast incoming streams. These are managed by a source switcher which manually, or automatically, connects to the correct source (and fades between them!).

Configure remote live input streams from DJ programs such as Mixxx or IDJC, or smartphone applications used by broadcast journalists. Airtime supports two types of live input stream; the Show Source, which enables a specific person to stream in during their own show, and the Master Source, which can override the Show Source if necessary. If neither type of live input is available, Airtime will fall back to Scheduled Play.

Icecast and SHOUTcast

Streaming solutions out of the box.

Airtime allows you to stream directly to up to three Icecast or SHOUTcast servers, via mp3, Ogg Vorbis, AAC or OPUS Support without requiring a soundcard or mixer.

Set up a fallback so that you can handover to a live stream and back again without breaking the stream.

Website Widgets

Let the people know what's on air.

 

Don't touch that dial! Airtime now features three standalone JQuery widgets - magical little snippets of code that you can embed onto your homepage, blog, website... wherever. No more laborious filling in of external calendars by hand, or lengthy text programmes on websites. Airtime can display information about:

  • current show (show time elapsed, show time remaining) and next show (start time, end time)
  • the upcoming show schedule for that day
  • weekly shows in a fully browsable widget

More features worth mentioning:
Crossfades and Waveform Preview

Get a better view.

The global crossfade setting allows you to determine a default crossfade between tracks. In the media builder you’ll find the waveform preview, a visual way to look at a track’s audio and easily set cue and fade points without guessing at where a track should be trimmed.

SoundCloud Ready

Automatically upload and share shows to SoundCloud

SoundCloud is increasingly the tool of choice for sharing audio on the web. A beautiful and embeddable audio player, text comments inside the sound waveform, fantastic API and a network of over eight million users and counting - what more do you need? Airtime has a dedicated app to let you take advantage.

WAV, FLAC, AAC Support

Professional features for radio

Airtime now supports MP3, OGG, WAV, FLAC and AAC formats, plus ReplayGain to normalize volume output.

Remote Management

Broadcast from anywhere.

Airtime allows you to control your radio station and scheduled playout over the internet through any web browser. Manage your audio archive, upload files, construct playlists, create shows, edit the Programme Calendar, and cue playout. All through the web.

Auto Import

Archive management made easy.

Set any number of directories to be watched by Airtime and any new files you add will be automatically imported into Airtime, and any deleted files will be automatically removed. Archive management just got simpler, quicker and more efficient.

Precision Play

Super-sonic performance.

Sometimes the best things remain invisible. Airtime uses Liquidsoap meaning greater stability plus crossfading, fade in and out and the ability to set cue in and cue out points within individual files, all with sub-second precision. It will mean a lot more in the near future too, regarding new streaming and auto-archiving features.

Magic File Sync

Watch and learn.

Airtime stores files in an easy-to-search directory, allowing producers and presenters to find and edit audio ready for broadcast. Edits to files in selected watch folders are automatically noticed by Airtime. If you edit any files on disk, such as trimming the length of a track, Airtime will automatically adjust the playlist lengths and shows for that audio file.


Record and Rebroadcast

Automatically record shows and then rebroadcast them later.

New, community-requested feature! Record any show and then automatically set a date and time for up to ten rebroadcasts. Goodnight graveyard shift! (Not yet available for Pro)
