Radio Broadcast Software for Mac OS X
Posted on 2010-08-22
Those who have anything to do with the radio broadcast industry will have no doubt heard of Dalet. It is the defacto standard is broadcast software and definitely controls the largest market share. There is but one snag - it is Windows only software and it requires a particular sound card (DigiGram) in order to work. This rules out its use on my iMac entirely.
I have been searching around trying to find an alternative piece of software that has been designed for the Mac but I have been unsuccessful. I've found several 'DJ type applications but they lack the proper functionality needed by a professional radio station (mix editing on the fly, multiple outputs properly configured etc). The most important functionality for me is the ability to edit the mix on the fly (in order to configure segues etc before they air live). Dalet has the in-flight mix editor for this.
If anyone can offer any suggestions I'd be most grateful.
