If Radio paints pictures in sound, time is Radio’s canvas. Audio Time Manager (ATM) gives stations an unprecedented new level of control over time, allowing stations as never before to bend a medium we never thought was flexible.
ATM lets you delay the start of an incoming feed or recorded program but still have it end on time. It lets you “punch” breaks into a live event at the touch of a button, and catch up to real time seamlessly. It can eliminate the need to back-time intros to network joins, so you can ad-lib and still join smoothly... even for events with random starts like news conferences. It can be automated, easily customized, and playback rates can be trimmed if conditions change while it’s in operation. Best of all, if you can push 2 buttons, you can operate it!
Think of Audio Time Manager as a high-quality, rugged digital stereo recorder... with two important differences: it can record part of a show while playing back another part, and playback speed can be as much as 20% faster than the original program. In effect, this can create up to 12 minutes of “new” time per hour. It does this without pitch change, artifacts, or glitches, thanks to our proprietary processing algorithms; with most broadcast material, a 10% speed change—6 new minutes per hour—is virtually undetectable by most listeners.
Audio Time Manager may be just the tool you’ve been looking for to manage unexpected events in your broadcast day, avoid collisions with network feeds, and create availabilities where none exist. Take control over time, with Audio Time Manager.
