is a Windows PC based software solution for today's and tomorrow's
professional radio applications. It
is designed specifically for playing audio files from hard disk,
internet streams, FTP stored audio files, MP3 players, smart
phones, text to speech, and much more. NEWWAVE brings together
all of the newest technologies to produce an exciting show for
your radio audience. Play live broadcasts, automated broadcasts,
podcasts, and stream for internet radio... all at the same time.
Most important, NEWWAVE is quick to learn and easy to use. Designed
for both novice and professional alike, it has the simplicity
required to get to air quickly and yet the sophisticated features
for advanced users. Highly fault tolerant, NEWWAVE will not allow
dead air in automation. Also, if connected to an Arrakis 'Advanced
Radio Console' (ARC series), the console and software merge to
complete a powerfully integrated radio workstation. NEWWAVE supports
the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system.
with Arrakis ARC series consoles...
a PC running NEW~WAVE software is connected via USB cable
to an Arrakis ARC series console, NEW~WAVE can use the
console's built in play-record sound card as its main sound
PC's internal sound card will be used for a second play
output for production and cueing. This merges the
console and software into a powerful integrated radio
of Radio Applications...
NEW~WAVE is designed
for file based audio playback and recording for on air
or internet radio applications. The on air audio output
can be sent to a transmitter for over the air broadcast
and-or to another PC for streaming by SurferNetwork, Live365,
or other service providers. Podcast programs can be recorded
and then uploaded via standard
your server. With two sound cards the live screen can be
producing (and-or recording) one program while another
scheduled program can be playing from the Automation output.
With multiple program outputs, voice tracking, music scheduling,
traffic interfaces, and much more... NEW~WAVE is ideal
for any radio application.
Smart phone, Network, and other external audio files...
NEW~WAVE supports the play of audio files received
from nearly any source. The software features a file folder named
over the network, received from a Smart phone, or downloaded from
an FTP site. The software checks audio files in this folder every
30 seconds. If the file size is changing as in a new recording,
re-recording, FTP transfer, streaming source download, network
transfer, etc, then the software waits before importing the file
for play on air. Once the file is complete in the import audio
folder, NEW~WAVE will transfer the file to the library folder and
update the library directory in the software. This powerful feature
allows NEW~WAVE to receive and play compatible audio files from
any type of digital media source anywhere in the world.
On Air Hot Keys...
The on air screen features 24 assignable hot keys
that can play up to 3 keys at a time. Any number of custom hot
key lists can be created for playback.
On Air Play List...
The on air screen features a play list player.
Any number of audio files can be selected from the audio library
and placed into this list. The list can be named and saved for
later playback. The Hot Keys and Playlist can be played at the
same time to air without conflict.
Air Automation (a second Program output)...
NEW~WAVE features an automation player that plays
from a schedule stored on disk. The automation player will play
to the live on air sound card or to a separate sound card for automation
on air while using the live on air hot keys or play list for another
Programs for play On air, Podcasting, etc...
The on air screen features a recorder for recording
a live program created by the Hot Keys and Play list. When connected
to an Arrakis ARC series console, the recorder will record the
main Program output of the console complete with a mix of the
mic, NEW~WAVE audio, and all console channels.
Once an automation schedule is created in NEW~WAVE,
voice tracks may be recorded directly in the scheduling screen.
The voice tracks are automatically inserted and saved in the schedule.
The overlap will be automatically set to the EOM time of the preceeding
audio event. Voice tracks will be automatically deleted from the
library once played in the automation player.
overlaps every time...
Every audio file can be tagged with an EOM time
to start play of the next audio file. Listen to the end of the
audio file in the NEW~WAVE library screen and select the EOM point.
When the file is played back in the play list the overlap will
always be perfect.
NEW~WAVE does not directly support text to speech.
It supports audio files produced into the Import Audio folder from
standard Text to Speech software.
NEW~WAVE is designed
for simultaneous play of uncompressed WAV, compressed MP2, and
Data to Audio Files...
Audio files can be recorded and edited in 3rd party
audio software and then have data added to them for radio specific
play. NEW~WAVE features a library screen where audio files may
be tagged with special data such as the overlap start time for
the next file, the type of audio file ('S' for spot, etc), and
If the PC has the
processing and memory capacity, NEW~WAVE can mix up to three
audio files live on air, three files to automation,
cue, and simultaneously dual record a program and voice
track. It supports from 1 to 3 PC sound cards for
live on air,
cueing. A minimum of two sound cards is suggested for simultaneous
play on air and production. The second sound card can be
an external USB sound card.
NEW~WAVE is designed
for file based reception of network audio from FTP or other sources.
Therefore NEW~WAVE does
not support a source switcher for network play-record
Play of Events...
To simplify scheduling
and because NEW~WAVE does not support a source switcher
for meeting a timed network audio broadcast, NEW~WAVE
does not support playing events at an exact time. The automatic
drop feature of the automation system assures that a top
of the hour event will play no later than the
of the last event to play over the top of the hour.
cart numbers are supported by NEW~WAVE. If a dash (-) is
placed in the cart number then the following characters
are the rotation number. Up to 99 audio files may be placed
into a rotation. Spots (type 'S' events) will rotate sequentially
while other type audio files will rotate randomly.
and Kill dates...
To facilitate unattended
automation, NEW~WAVE supports start and kill dates in the automation
When a file that
has been scheduled does not exist in the library, NEW~WAVE
will replace the file with another from the same cart type.
Because this software does not need to fill exact length
stopsets, missing audio files will not be replaced from
an autofill category. Instead, if the automation schedule
hour is short due to missing files, the software will fill
the remainder of the hour from a 4 event rotation of a
type 'J' jingle followed by three type 'M' song events.
a powerful category based music scheduler. Assign all songs
to one or more music categories such as 'Current's, 'Recurrents',
'Gold', etc. Then, enter a SONGN event into the schedule
(where 'N' is the music
NEW~WAVE will then pull from the specified category at
play time in the automation schedule. Songs are played
sequentially through the category until the category is
complete. Once complete, the category is shuffled randomly
for continued play.
with a limited number of commercials and without the need
for exact scheduling or dayparting, NEW~WAVE supports a
'SPOT' cart number event. If a SPOT cart number is encountered
in the automation schedule, then a spot will be selected
sequentially out of all type 'S' spot audio files. Base
cart rotations will be honored and a rotation selected.
Once all spots have been played, then play will reset to
the first spot in the library. Selection of appropriate
cart numbers for the spots will eliminate back to back
play of conflicting client spots (such as two car commercials
back to back). If more complex spot scheduling is required
then manual scheduling or traffic imports may be used.
Imports & Reconciliation...
the Digilink-Xtreme traffic import-export standard which
is supported by all leading traffic and billing companies
such as Natural Log. The import should be a combined traffic
and music schedule.
a play log of all audio events for both the Live Air players
and for the Automation player for viewing and printing.
Logs & Traffic Reconciliation...

format that is accepted for reconciliation by all major
traffic software products.
Log & Reports...
