The Shure is available on input 2 on the 602 for simulcasting. The mic feeds both mixers
Radio Brandy still makes heavy use of cart machines in all studios. The cart machine is an in house format, meaning the tape is not intended to be used outside of the studio.
Our cart machines are well maintained and of top quality.
We have yet to have a cart freeze up requiring a five minute reboot, the same can't be said for our computers!
Radio Brandy uses Sonicart 2.2
Sonicart is a jingle encoding, scheduling and playback system designed for small community based radio stations.
Sonicart is a free program that works well. Sonicart allows us to use older Windows 98SE equipped computers down to 350Mhz without glitch.
Studio7 was built wired and maintained by
the students of Radio Brandy
