1RadioDJ will have a paid for version eventually but the free version will still be available.
2From beta 5.8 RadioBoss now has a MySQL database option along with the flat file system.
3We’ve never been able to test past the limits of the demo version.
4There are far too many options to configure RadioBoss some options are hidden from plain view.
5 More file types can be added from the BASS Library. (http://www.un4seen.com/)
6 Using a standalone encoder is no more difficult than using a built in one.
So there you are we’ve compared those two pieces of radio automation software and again come to the same conclusion that RadioBoss is far too awkward to setup for a novice where as RadioDJ is easier to setup and use.
RadioBoss is another piece of software that we can’t see the “Value” in.
We’re also confused as to why RadioBoss relies on winamp.exe What’s wrong can’t DJ soft code his own plugins?
Radioboss not so much a ‘Boss’ of radio automation its more like the Tea Boy of radio automation software.
