Raduga is a comprehensive tool that you can use to create and automate audio playlists. Whether you’re a radio DJ or you want to play some ambient music in a museum, it can do just that.
The first thing you learn about Raduga is that it doesn’t need any configuration. The moment you open it, it’s ready to run. You drag and drop tracks into the playlist, arrange them in any order you want and then hit play.
Regarding the interface, everything is where you need it to be. Either in plain site or well organized in category specific menus.
During playback, the application displays the name of the previously played track, the current one, as well as its remaining time. Raduga automatically crossfades between two tracks in the playlist, allowing you to focus on other matters, for example inserting a mini playlist into the master one or loading the contents of an audio CD.
Raduga also enables you to create complex broadcasting schedules in a simple manner. You can choose to play certain audio content at specific hours and intervals for a short or long period of time. This proves very helpful in situations where you have to play mandatory jingles and promote various events via audio ads.
Moreover, you can create and use rotations. To make sure the playback is uninterrupted, you can activate the “Silence Detector” function which takes immediate action when a pause is longer than the user defined period.
With Raduga, you can also make your playlists heard over the internet. It’s fully compatible with online streaming technologies, such as RealAudio, Shoutcast and Live365.com.
Raduga automates transitions, supports scheduling, rotations, jingles, uninterrupted playback and internet broadcasting. All that’s left for you to do is choose the best music and play it.
