Zararadio Why Bother?

This is another piece of radio software that I tried to use before I discovered the joys of RadioDJ.

Zararadio was another piece of software I couldn’t get it to work properly. Even after reading the manual.

The crossfading was awful & I would always end up with lots of “dead air” between songs.

The sound quality was poor with some songs sounding distorted even though they sounded OK on other players.

It would frequently repeat songs & artists as it didn’t have any playlist rotation rules built in.

It wasn’t much cop when it came to leaving it unattended to automate. Many a day I would wake up and look at the PC to find it wouldn’t be playing any music.

Also Zara runs on a flat file system so your stuck if you want to have any form of web functionality.

It’s just another reason I’m so glad we discovered Radio DJ Free Radio Automation when we did.

Unlike Zararadio, Radio DJ actually does what automation software is supposed to do.

Radio DJ works well when left unattended, has great sound quality as well as giving a smooth cross-fade between songs.

If you are still using Zararadio to automate your stations music with the question has to be WHY?

“You could never call Zararadio professional… It’s a horrid piece of software to even try and contemplate using to run a radio stream with. Infact we’d go as far as saying Zararadio is nothing more than a glorified music player”
