ProppFrexx ONAIR V188.8.131.52 Crack – All-In-One Radio Automation
ProppFrexx ONAIR is an advanced radio automation and playout system for internet broadcasters. It’s full of features, easy to install, and quick to learn, but with tutorials of course. Customers have also lauded its stability, programmability, and versatility.
Before ProppFrexx, there was radio42, an internet radio station for lounge-lovers that begun broadcasting in 2001.
Bernd Niedergesaess the radio’s proprietor is the genius behind ProppFrexx and Bass.Net (audio engine). These solutions were directly aimed at helping him create a fully automated radio station.
The program has been around since 2009. The name was actually coined after a few bottles of wine between friends. And you can catch the full story at radio42.com.
Straightaway, let’s get to the review and see why it’s the best software for your studio.
Is it easy to install?
Really easy, and quick too.
You’ll need to provide your name and email address on the download page to receive the link.
After downloading it, you go through the normal setup wizard. It might only take you just 5 minutes.
After launching the program, you select the “Demo Version.” It shuts off after 3 hours.
On the first run, there is an ON AIR setup wizard. If you have a touch screen monitor, you can choose to use the Touch UI. In this review, we’re using the Metropolis Dark theme.
Configuring the stream server
Straight out of the box, you might want to configure the stream server settings. You can stream in different codecs, including MP3, OGG, WMA & OPUS. For AAC, you must first install “Quick Time” on Windows.
Here is the procedure for setting up the server settings:
Step 1: From the main navigation bar, select the Tools Tab → General Settings
Step 2: In the Settings and Options window, choose Streaming.
Step 3: Configure your stream settings. Your radio host provides the server address, password, etc.
Step 4: Select OK to finish. You can then configure how the player will display the title information and start streaming.
The Playout system & Creating Playlists
ProppFrexx can run in the manual mode, Auto-Play, and Live-Assist. There are three main players (A,B & C). We particularly liked that track information that includes the song’s format, BPM, Bitrate, Duration, etc.
Getting started is a breeze. First, you add music folders to your media library (Scheduler → Libraries → Media Libraries).
Next, you can create playlists from manually or from script templates. Scripting is a bit complex to figure out. Luckily, there is a tutorial you can watch: ProppFrexx On Air: Scripting. Also, refer to the program manual:
The program also supports playlists created by third-party builders.
Players & The PFL Player
ProppFrexx has some of the best audio players of any radio automation program on this list.
You see the song’s waveform, and you can perform actions like skipping or adjusting the fade ramp.
When you double click a particular song on the playlist list, you launch the Pre-fade-Listen Player.
The PFL Player supports many actions and functions. For ease of use, you get a jog wheel to vary the track’s position and speed.
You can set the ins & outs, ramp, EQ, and even add special effects to the song.
Voice-tracking on another level
Voice tracking on ProppFrexx is topnotch. You can instantly record using your built-in mic or external input. The recording is inserted as a new playlist entry.
The tool also has a segue editor that helps your voice track blend in seamlessly.
To open the Voice Tracking Tool, you right-click any song and select “Voice Tracking.” Or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + F11.
Explorer (Must Use Tool).
The tool lets you view your music folders inside ProppFrexx.
You to access it, you just need to select View from the main navigation menu and open “Explorer.”
There are up to 3 standby players that you can use for interviews, special requests, etc.
Standby players, directory explorer
Scheduling works really well. We had the change to set up the “Program Scheduler.”
It allows you to schedule music and shows. There is an overlay scheduler used for scheduling adverts.
Another great feature of ProppFrexx is the two integrated cartwalls..
Here, you can add a list of your jingles, sweepers, or sound effects.
You can even loop or fade your inserts.
Adding tracks is also easy. Here are the steps to follow. Select Scheduler → Libraries → Cartwalls Libraries → Add Playlist or Add Folder.
To use the Cartwalls, you’ll need to view Cartwalls I or Cartwalls II. To open them, select View from the main menu.
