Moreover, it has other useful features: password-protection for settings, silence detection, DTMF tone detector, support for up to 5 different soundcards at the same time, logs system, automatic audio-playlist files detection, rotation, and autodelete, etc. Even, you can connect directly and “resend” any web radiostation, directly! This software could be considered as a dream which came true!
With Zara Radio, you can schedule each and every broadcasting step from your computer: create playlists and queue list, define time and weather automated announcements (time synchonized with your computer’s clock, and weather, if you download and install it, with Weather Watcher) and jingles, talk over for live shows. Also, it allows you to do overlapping, voicetraking, enable tags, configure fades, use several formats for audio files and playlists.
Clean and intuitive environment
ZaraRadio 1.6.6 premium’s interface is pleasant and easy to navigate, even for beginners. All of its functions are concentrated in a few complication-free menus and buttons, which do not overcrowd the program’s main window.
Talk over a song and use the included playback controls
Playlists can be imported or created on the spot, with the possibility to schedule songs, while the “Find” function allows you to quickly locate audio files in a specific folder. Playback controls include repeat, shuffle, random and mark as next.
- You need no more
- Just one: lack of direct connection for webcasting
- Full broadcasting system, and free!
Nowadays radio broadcasting is a lot simpler and cheaper thanks to the possibility of automating the broadcasts. The immense majority of applications that allow the user to do so have really prohibitive prices for the humbler and smaller independent and alternative radios, but there are free applications like ZaraRadio 1.6.6 pre-Activated that have nothing to envy of the majority of paid applications.

In the program’s menu, what are Parameters and Start Folder? Clicking the program Next File actually plays the next file using (in my case iTunes). Shouldn’t it only show the path of the file?
The Parameters menu allows you to pass various related parameters to file playback. You can find more about it in the help menu. The Start Folder is used to define the folder where the application should start searching. This is a common setting on most of the apps. You can specify the path of the folder to point anywhere on your hard drive. Alternatively, use the Usage Guide file available for downloading from the official website. You will find all the Parameters explained in the context.
I was wondering if there is a way for the Zara Playlist to also show the artist, since it is in the file that Zara uses. I have Zara broadcasting RDS, but it only shows the song, not the artist. I could add them to the titles by hand, but I have over 40 hours of music I would have to edit.
If Zara doesn’t show the artist then it’s possible that your files are not ID3 tagged properly. The ID3 tag contains various meta data like year, artist, name, track number, encoding, release date, etc.
You should check the ID3 tags of your files and then load them into the application.
Secondly, consult the manual of the program as well using the following link: http://www.zarastudio.es/downloads/manual3_en.pdf
