Airtime has been released in version 2.2. Airtime is our free, web-based software for Debian or Linux that lets radio stations, media organisations and businesses run a radio station via the web and broadcast it online or on air.
Airtime Pro is our cloud-hosted service which upgrades users to new versions before anyone else and takes care of installation, updates and security.
Four live assist modes now exist in Airtime. DJs can rebroadcast incoming streams managed by a source switcher which manually, or automatically, connects to the correct source (and fades between them). Users can configure remote live input streams from DJ programs such as Mixxx or IDJC, or smartphone applications used by broadcast journalists. Additionally, they can schedule these streams in the calendar, or schedule a 'live' show which records from the computer's line-in.
Requested by users more than any other feature, the new Smart Blocks let users enter parameters (like genre or time last played) for a playlist and Airtime will populate that block randomly according to those conditions, before playing it out at an allotted time.
The library has also been overhauled, with huge performance increases on import and improved search. Users can also drag and drop tracks directly from the library into the Now Playing list to instantly edit playout on-the-fly.
Amongst 500 bug fixes and improvements, other new features include:
Oh, and before you go... why not like Airtime on Facebook?
