We’ve used RadioDJ as our music automation solution since late November 2010.
The one thing we can say about RadioDJ is once you nail the settings of the built in sound/audio processing then all your music will sound great.
We’ve tried all sorts of settings and configurations on the processor plugin over the years some worked & some didn’t, it was all trial and error.
These are the settings we now use in RadioDJ v188.8.131.52 (Beta)
You can now disable and enable different parts of the audio plugin.
We’re pleasantly surprised by how good the music sounds with just the compressor and stereo enhancer.
Another user posted on the RadioDJ forums recently that he was using my configuration with the audio.
Please Note: While these audio settings work for us there is no guarantee they will work on your system.
You don’t have to use these suggested settings & you can always tweak where required, these settings are merely a suggestion.
Although we’d go as far as say those audio settings are just about perfect, It makes it a pleasure to listen to music.
Took me a while to nail these settings down but I’m glad I got there.
“The sound settings only work on the main soundcard/player any other sound cards/Aux players will bypass the sound processing”
You will need to provide external sound processing for those other channels/sound cards.
We also find its usually best to encode music at a higher bitrate to get reasonable sound quality or FLAC if you have huge amounts of disk space…
Remember the old adage:
Crap Sound In = Crap Sound Out
Especially if the CD you are ripping the file(s) from is of poor quality or pirated.
Always use a genuine CD or genuine downloaded audio file where possible.
The Audio quality is just one of the reasons why RadioDJ is so great as a radio playout automation solution.
Did we mention RadioDJ is FREE?
