The Main Target Were The Hobby Users…

A station owner posted a feature request on the RadioDJ forums asking for a GPIO system inclusion in the software.

“Is possible to add GPIO to an event like a play/stop command it could be used turn ON/OFF channels on the mixer, Also I would like to have spots management and scheduling in radio DJ. It would be great for Radio DJ to have a Web interface from which I can import track/spots, scheduling, reports and other things or drupal modules”

Live365 Closes, So What Next?
