MegaSeg users can now prioritize playback for certain songs or categories of music, and can also start playlists and insert sound clips — “jingles,” so to say — at specific times. You can set up rules to prevent two songs from the same artist playing too close together.
Drop-in clips and sound effects can be queued instantly using hot keys — a big benefit to broadcasters looking for an inexpensive alternative to the complicated and expensive systems some companies implement, according to Fidelity Media president Jason Cox. The software also provides playlist information updated on-the-fly for users of the Live365.com broadcast streaming service.
MegaSeg 2.5 also includes Play Count and Song History charts, which offer details of every date and hour a song has played. Library size limitations have been eradicated, the Request Notes feature has been enhanced, a Show Duplicates command has been added, and more Aqua interface embellishments have been made.
MegaSeg costs US$169, and upgrades to MegaSeg 2.5 cost $49 for registered users. It’s compatible with Mac OS 9 or higher, and native for Mac OS X. Anyone who’s bought MegaSeg 2.1 since September 1 can get the upgrade for free. Visit the MegaSeg Web site to download a demo version.
