The StationPlaylist Workshop!

A Training Course for Users of JAWS for Windows and StationPlaylist.


For many years, the StationPlaylist software has been the tool of choice through which blind people broadcast their radio shows or even run their own stations. We know this because there are hundreds of StationPlaylist users on our customer database. If you use the software, are you getting the most from it or do you just work with the features you need?

The "Broadcast It" audio tutorial produced some time ago teaches a new user how to work with many aspects of StationPlaylist Studio (for broadcasting audio), StationPlaylist Creator (for managing schedules), and StationPlaylist Streamer (for sending output over the internet if external devices are being used). However, during the past year or two, the developers of this amazing product suite have created new features not described in the tutorial. This training course is for people who are using any one of the StationPlaylist products who want to improve the quality of their radio output and station management.

Hartgen Consultancy are ideally placed to run this training course. The JAWS scripts we have created and sell, in our view, provide unparalelled access to many features of the StationPlaylist products. We both sell and support the entire SPL product range. Finally, our internet radio station, Team-FM, is hosted exclusively using StationPlaylist tools and we take advantage of the vast majority of the features on offer in that regard.

What Will I Learn?

The course is divided into four sessions, each of which lasts approximately 60 minutes. Topics include, but are not restricted to:

  • Changes to the Options Dialog.
  • Customising V5.2 settings for optimum use.
  • Creating Song Hooks for upcoming promotion, both manually and automatically.
  • Voice-Tracking: Remote versus local, advantages and disadvantages.
  • Using remote voice tracking to good effect.
  • Voice-tracking shows to be played on a local PC, including use of the SPL Recorder.
  • Replay Gain.
  • Customising Metadata to include what's coming next.
  • Preparing Cue Sheets and what they are.
  • Working with Break Notes.
  • Separation Rules.
  • Schedule Restrictions.

Who is the Course For?

This course is suited to anyone who is familiar with many of the functions of StationPlaylist Studio and Creator if appropriate and who would like to build on existing skills.
