Switching from other software to On Air Suite
We have import modules for use with many other software products. Contact us to find out whether we can import the data from the software you are using. If we do not currently support your software, we will investigate the possibilities of creating a data importer for use with your software. Feel free to ask us for more information about this unique switching service!

Multiple stations and localised editions
Besides regular broadcasting, our software excels in the operation of multiple stations and the broadcast of localised editions. Using our advanced edition system, we are able to broadcast localised commercials, news messages to different regions. Combinations of both of these are also possible. In other words, our software is able to operate multiple stations and every station is able to handle multiple editions.

Player
The player plays all the scheduled items, either automatically, semi-automatically or manually. Playlists can be generated automatically or composed manually. Playlists may contain any kind of item, ranging from music to pre-recorded interviews.Every DJ is able to compose, store and load his or her own list in advance. Playlists can be altered either before or during a broadcast. After each alteration, the player recalculates all start and end times of the items to make sure that news items and commercials still start at the correct time.

Crossover editor
Using the incorporated crossover editor, it is easy to mix all your songs to perfection! The crossover editor is also used to record voicetracks and mix them with other items. The crossover editor has 5 predefined settings that ensure that your mix points are always perfect. It is also possible to set the crossover editor to detect optimum cuepoints automatically.

Playlist generator
Playlists are lists containing the items to be broadcasted. Playlists can be generated manually or automatically. Playlists can be changed at any time, even during broadcasts. This especially comes in handy during live-assist broadcasting. A playlist can also contain commands. Commands are items in a playlist that automatically perform certain tasks like controlling external equipment, broadcasting news or broadcasting a series of tracks.

Scheduling Rules
Scheduling Rules are used to create templates for the playlists. The large number of features allow you to direct the playlist towards your audience and thus increase your listenership and advertising revenue.

Library
The library has advanced features for the storing of information about music, performers and musicians. Items are easily found with the help of quick search fields or advanced filters. It is possible to store a great deal of information about each item in the library. The cue point analyser is a very useful tool. With a click of the mouse, On Air Suite analyses all the items in your database and automatically sets all the cue points!

Carts
Carts are small players. A cart allows the DJ to start an item, to preview an item or to play a predefined list of items. Each cart can be connected to an audio output, allowing the user to have as many carts as there are audio ports.

Multiple stations
On Air Suite is able to handle multiple stations. It is possible to add an unlimited number of stations to On Air Suite, the only limitations being the hardware configuration. Each station is provided with its own playlists and scheduling rules. The playlists all use the same music database.

Editions
On Air suite is designed to be able to work with multiple editions. Initially, one main radio station is created which is associated with multiple editions. The main radio station broadcasts the main playlist, while the editions only play the blocks which differ from the main broadcast (ie local news and commercials). The main station broadcasts the playlist up to the start of a different block. At this point, the different editions take charge of the broadcast. Every different edition starts an 'Edition Player'. The edition players then play one deviating block each. Every edition also can broadcast its own RDS messages..When parallel deviating blocks differ in length, the shorter blocks will be supplemented with 'fillers'. Any item in the library is suitable for use as a filler including station-ID's, short music intros or free commercials. The placing of the fillers (start/end) is user defined. On Air Suite ensures that all Remote Players start at the same time and that they all stop at the same time.Remote players can be installed onto any computer on the same network as On Air Suite's main program, including the computer running the main program. Control of the remote players is via TCP/IP and can be done using any normal LAN or WAN. The number of remote players connected to a computer is only limited by the number of audio ports on the computer.In addition, it's even possible to have multiple stations with multiple editions for each station.

System
System is used for the configuring and maintenance of On Air Suite.
