Hey, all! It’s been a long time since we’ve posted here… too long, in fact. Let’s fix that, shall we?
We will be starting a new monthly event soon, so keep an eye out around campus for flyers with our logos on them.
Last semester we added a shiny new server to the rack. Unfortunately, the server we had been using died a hot death as it overheated. RIP old Studio1…
Fortunately, Khaos had a PowerEdge server kicking around that he wasn’t doing anything with and he brought it in for us. He and Ryex have spent several sleepless nights getting it all set up and running smoothly, and I think they have about got it. That said, we have all new hard drives in this new incarnation of Studio1, and with it, we have some new features and shiny new tools to play with.
Make no mistake, there are still some minor software bugs and issues we need to work out, but we are so far ahead of schedule from what we planned that we’ll definitely be alright. If you notice anything that is broken, or if you hear polka music on loop, PLEASE EMAIL US OR MESSAGE US ON FACEBOOK! We have things in place to tell us if things break, but sometimes they break too!
Please be sure to keep an eye on this space as well as our Facebook and Twitter!
TuneIN has added us to their station directory! What does this mean for you? It means that you can carry us in your pocket and listen to us wherever you go.
Grab the TuneIN app for your Apple, Windows, or Android device and listen to us in your car, at your house, in the library… Practically anywhere!
I have added some new (read: experimental) features to Eris. She is now running the way she needs to (for now). I have gone through the entire music library and removed all explicit content as we are going to try to get a terrestrial broadcast license.
I also went through the entire library and edited the tags on our tracks. You should not see any more blank artist or track title tags. We have added a low bitrate (64 kbps MP3) stream so people can listen on their phones. This may change to a 64 kbps AAC stream soon to improve quality.
The “Now Playing” and “Recently Played” dialogues now update in real time.
We have also been adding new artists where we can. Our recent additions include: Bob Marley, Collective Soul, Lindsey Sterling, OneRepublic, and Ryan Farish as well as Archie (AKA Desso), Eurobeat Brony, Odyssey, and Black Gryph0n and Baasik.
Ladies and gentlemen, the new site is now live! In addition to this new site, we now have a new AutoDJ. I have named her Eris and she is made to do anything she is asked. She takes requests from the Internet via the WebRequest page and texts! The text message system is still buggy, but I am working on it. It should be ready by the end of the summer if all goes according to plan.
I have also been adding more and more music to the rotation and I’m currently working through a year’s worth of backlogged emails to get some new and local acts in there as well.
