    I am having exactly the same problem

    Hi, i am also having a similar problem. i have used many pieces of software including myriad, jazzler, Sam, google radio automation and many more. although these pieces of software are great and do the job well, i find that even with a reletivalely high powered pc, it can struggle to run the software. i recently got rid of my pc and bought a 27" quad core imac and a 13" core i5 macbook pro. i used to run a weekly radio show on my website, however i did not realise until afterwards how much trouble i would have finding a decent piece of software that runs on mac osx. i have tried a piece of software called nicecast, however it will not let you broadcast to a shoutcast server. i have also tried butt, and yet again, this piece of software was far from what i need. i now use q emulator, which is a free program that allows you to run windows applications within osx, however, this can be slow, and is defeating the point of having a mac in the first place. does anybody have any suggestions of free or cheap software that is available for mac osx

    many thanks
    Ryan :apple:

    Recommend you take a look at AudioRack Suite, which is free.

    While there is a learning curve, it appears to be a very complete package for those wishing to run live, live-assist, or fully automated, online radio stations. It even allows for the integration of remote access, allowing you to have personalities from anywhere in the world perform as DJ's on your station, without having to use their own music database.

    Just downloaded mixlr, you can get it free on the app store through You have to create an account and you can actually stream through the site too. Only just started using it but it seems to be working great and the program has a nice, clean design. After struggling to find some nice (and free) automation software and a free streaming service, this seems to tick all the boxes.
