Automatronix is a unique
computerized music/event programming system. Offering both music automation
and event scheduling with simplified programming techniques, Automatronix
performance is comparable to expensive, high-ended programs. The key feature
of Automatronix is the extreme user friendliness, making it an effortless
program to learn and operate. Competitors offer modules for 'additional' performance
which are typically sold separately. Automatronix offers all needed features
in a single product, thereby eliminating the need to purchase additional
features later. All this at fraction of the cost of competitors' "top ended"

repeat and random modes of operation.
-- Simplified 'on-the-fly'
-- Unique file tagging method
(with free file tagger program) does not require separate data
operator to maintain file playback with conventional players.
-- 6 fully programmable independent
hotkeys- multiple hotkeys can be operated
Hotkeys can be started, stopped, paused, and 'fast stop & rewind'
case of accidental operator start.
-- Change/add/remove formats,
songs, or events on the fly, even while operating.
-- Program log generation-
logs all files played.
-- 3 independent players -joined
during automatic operation- for true triple overlap capability.

-- Free music tagger program
included - allows music files to be tagged for intro/overlap times.
-- Stand-alone playlist generator
program - allows MP3 files to be edited on the fly.
-- Stand-alone timed recorder
program - record live satellite feeds at pre-programmed
-- True randomization of
playlist- rerandomizes each time playlist is completed.

-- Bult-in playlist generator-can
be utilized in background, or run separately.
-- Data from playlist generator
can be instantly transferred to on-air playlist for rapid
-- Unique voice-over file
feature allows files to match voice-over time resulting in precise
intro of each song.
-- Programmable random file-insert
feature- insert random files between songs in playlist.
-- Bad file detection in
all modes. Literally 'kicks-out' any bad file anomalies.
-- Will play rapid, short
files as little as 0.2 sec. in length.
-- Auto-corrects invalid overlap
times, eliminating operator error.
-- Ability to randomize items
in a file from within playlists or eventlists.
-- Sub playlist can be inserted
into main playlist for specialty insertion- useful for voice-over
segues and random
pick of songs in sub-playlist.
-- Playlist search engine
allows rapid location of files in playlist.
-- Ability to send remote commands to RS-232 serial port for external control
of switches, commands, etc.
-- Programmable audio dim
function for hotkeys and voiceovers.
-- Programmable "bumpometers"
allows master adjustment of overlap times and voiceovers-
adjust tightness/looseness between segues/voiceovers.
-- Programmable intro and
overlap times for each song with separate file tagger program
By simple mouse clicks, setting intro and overlap times for each time
is rapid= literally
takes seconds to tag files independent upon file lengths.
-- 4 programmable directory/file
quick access buttons for rapid song/event entry.
-- Independent playlist/eventlist
programming of overlap times for non-tagged files.
-- Built-in adjustable auto-fader
between segues. This provides adjustable fade times
-- Programmable sound card
input feature for external audio input events (both long and
-- Intro time display counts
down for visual help during live assist.
-- Built-in Clock- displays
down to the second.
-- Count-down timer for on-air
event- readout to 0.1 second accuracy.
-- Cycle button for rapid
change- operates in Live-assist and all auto modes.
-- Keyboard shortcuts make
mouseless operation possible.
-- Built-in playlist search
engine- locate file in playlist and interact with activity.

In addition, operator can insert voice file and utilize 'talk-up' feature
in sub-playlist. In addition, sub-playlists can be scheduled to play at
through the event scheduler.
-- Additional ability to create rotate, random, and/or unlimited combinations
of playlists for diversified programming.
-- Program events like a
-- Ability to 'day-part' schedules
by scheduling playlist changes from event scheduler.
-- Up to 15 files can be
programmed per event.
-- Immediate, approximate,
and manual event programming. Immediate events fade out
file moments prior to scheduled start time of event. Approximate events
load 30 seconds
prior to start, and manual events wait for operator intervention.
-- Events independent of
playlist- can be run regardless of songs on air. This makes
useable on talk radio networks where music is not normally scheduled
-- Microsoft Access style
database management for programmed events.
-- Separate timed recorder
