Station Announcements
« on: February 13, 2016, 01:58:58 PM »
I am a former Live365 broadcaster, would any of you veteran broadcasters know how I can record station announcements, that I may plug in from
time to time identifying my station? I am using MegaSeg through Nicecast.
Thank you

Sorry Old Joe,

MegaSeg is software that can only be used on a Mac. I tried to look up info, but found that there's no way I would be able to help you or even guide you to info that might be helpful. I'm not a Mac guy. I've used Windows loaded products all of my computer life.

Here's some vague, general details: For station Identification announcements, if you're using some form of automatic player system, you would obviously need to voice record same and plug it into your system. Then set it up to play hourly or how ever often you wish to play it for listeners to hear.

Suggest you find some instructions for your MegaSeg and Nicecast, which I am also not familiar with, since I use neither. I use ShoutCast with AutoDj. I record all of my stuff (music and voice) with AUDACITY, which can be downloaded here. "http://download.cnet.com/Audacity/3000-2170_4-10058117.html". Of course, if you're using a Mac, it probably is not compatible. If so, you need to find something similar to use with to record using your Mac equipment.

Hope this helps you out.

Thank you GG, I am able to add the ReliaStream promotional plug into my various playlists. Perhaps I can record it to Garage Band and rip it from there
Thank you very much
