Interface with Arrakis ARC series consoles...
When a PC running NEW~WAVE~LITE software is connected via USB
cable to an Arrakis ARC series console, NEW~WAVE~LITE automatically
displays the option in the Sound Card Setup to use the console‘s
built in play-record sound card as its main sound card. If
the setup option is selected, then the 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 workstation.
Types of Radio Applications...
NEW~WAVE~LITE 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 FTP software to your server.
NEW~WAVE~LITE supports the Hot Keys and Playlist for live on
air play while NEW~WAVE~LITE features another player output
to add scheduled Automation playback capabilities.
FTP, Smart phone, Network, and other external audio files...
NEW~WAVE~LITE supports the play of audio files received from
nearly any source. The software features a file folder named ‘Import
Audio’. This is where any new audio file should be recorded,
transferred over the network, received from a Smart phone,
or downloaded from an FTP site. The software checks audio files
in this folder every few 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~LITE will transfer
the file to the library folder and update the library directory
in the software. This powerful feature allows NEW~WAVE~LITE
to receive and play compatible audio files from any type of
digital media source anywhere in the world.
Live On Air Hot Keys...
The on air screen features 24 assignable hot keys that can play
up to 3 keys at a time. Over ten thousand custom hot key lists
of 24 keys can be created for playback and hot keys from more
than one list can be played at the same time.
Live On Air Play List...
The on air screen features a play list player. Over ten thousand
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 play list supports start and kill dates and cart rotations.
The Hot Keys and Play List can be played at the same time to
air without conflict.
Recording 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 can record the main
Program output of the console complete with a mix of the mic,
NEW~WAVE~LITE audio, and all console channels. The live screen
recorder uses the Windows Audio compression manager to select
audio formats. NEW~WAVE~LITE supports record and playback of
uncompressed PCM, MP2, & MP3 formats.
Perfect 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~LITE Library screen and select the EOM point.
When the file is played back in the play list the overlap will
always be perfect.
Audio File Formats...
NEW~WAVE~LITE is designed for simultaneous play of uncompressed
WAV, compressed MP2, and compressed MP3 audio files.
Adding 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~LITE
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
Play Record Capabilities...
If the PC has the processing and memory capacity, NEW~WAVE~LITE
can mix up to three audio files live on air, cue, and simultaneously
record a program. It supports from 1 to 2 PC sound cards for
live on air, and cueing. A minimum of two sound cards is suggested
for simultaneous play on air and cueing The second sound card
can be an external USB sound card.
Eight character cart numbers are supported by NEW~WAVE~LITE. 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.
Start and Kill dates...
For advanced play list playback, NEW~WAVE~LITE supports start
and kill dates so that out of date carts will not be played.
Autofill in Play List
When a file that has been selected does not exist in the library,
NEW~WAVE~LITE will automatically select another file from the
same cart type for play. Because this software does not need
to fill exact length satellite 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’ music events.
NEW~WAVE~LITE creates a play log of all audio events for viewing

events in the Digilink-Xtreme standard format that is accepted

files for reporting to Sound Exchange, BMI, etc.
