Music Scheduling

Music Scheduling helps you to easily and quickly create audio playlists.

Unlike the shuffle feature found in many audio applications, you can set the spacing between artists and songs, create rules and more, resulting in a professionally created playlist.

The software can save you a significant amount of time – you can have a playlist within a few seconds without having to put the items together yourself. Just add the tracks you wish to make available for use in your playlist and then click Create Playlist to generate your new playlist!

  • Set spacing between the same artists, years and more.
  • Identify similar artists (e.g. ensuring Robbie Williams and Take That are treated as the same artist when creating a playlist).
  • Schedule items to be added at particular intervals.
  • Ensure tracks are played within every number of items (e.g. an A List of songs)

Playlists can be created for Library Player, and other audio/playout applications that support the PLS or M3U playlist file formats.

Ideal for creating off air playlists, putting together songs for a show, creating a music playlist for public areas/waiting rooms, clubs and more.

Available for Windows and Linux.
Price: £20 per computer.
Includes 3 months product support/updates.

A free, no obligation 90 day trial edition is available.
