TuneTracker Site Launches

Filed under the:  department.
Posted by:Ryan on Saturday, 03 Mar, 2001 @ 11:42 AM

BeOSRadio’s spinoff software, TuneTracker, has just launched its web site. The site is still pretty sparse, but looking good. What’s even more interesting is that over on le Buzz, Dane has mentioned that 6 people have purchased it already, a large network of Christian stations are interested (they broadcast in 165 languages, so their infrastructure must be huge) and a European Reseller is looking to get in on the act. According to the same leBuzz article, the pre-1.0 release should ship on Monday. UPDATE: There is now a Screenshot online. Lookin’ Good!

    “they broadcast in 165$ languages”

    What kind of languages are $165 ones? Not that I want to buy one, but I’m kind of curious.

    I will pay $1.98 for Latin, if anyone is selling.

    Heh. I have no idea how that got there. In any case, it’s now been fixed.

    One of those market thingies

    I’m not much on predicting the future, but this may very well be one of those unusual and unexpected market breakout kind of products that can help get some major name recognition for the BeOS (at this point it can take all the help it can get :>). From what little I know of it, the radio and audio automation arenas can be pretty expensive ones (even for just Internet broadcasting), and if BRS/TuneTracker can make it much less costly for one to enter into them, while at the same time displaying to the public the power of the BeOS, then I don’t see a downside here.

    I wish Dane the best of luck getting TuneTracker out to the masses.

    And with some luck users of BRS will start demanding a good “Word” type application so they can write also, some audio processing applications all running in BeOS, etc etc.

    If BRS turns out to be a very good deal for some people doing radio automation, I hope the people behind BRS have the money and the will to market outside the BeOS community. Maybe making also a package with BeOS PE, SoundPlay and BRS.

    IF this works out it will attract some more users to the BeOS field specially into audio production.

    A great choice for christian radio? What makes christian radiostations so much different than other radiostations? Does the software has bible retrieval system speechsynth plugin or what?

    There are some other weird kind of radio’s also in the list. Oh well, it sounds like a nice app.

    Um.. probably the same thing that makes it a great choice for all the other items in that list. I think he was just trying to list all sorts of markets. Dane is a christian, so christian radio probably popped to mind. That said, in the US at least, there is probably a larger christian radio market than any other religion radio. But i am sure TuneTracker is a great choice for non-christian radio as well. Or something.

    Bundle it with BeOS pro

    I don’t think the BeOS PE license allows for commercial use, and in any event, it is better if more BeOS Pro copies get sold so that Be starts to get some financial incentive to back BeOS per se.

    Re: Bundle it with BeOS pro

    Athough I agree, esp if you can get a deal with Gobe, Koch & ASomething to sell it cheep,
    1) Most of the radio station stations in the ‘desinged for’ list are none-comersal (Relgous, ham, etc)
    2) It’ll double the current price! (thou. it’ll still be a bargen from what I can work out :)
    3)I’ll bet it’ll be a bitch getting suport from all three retailers. I don’t think Gobe will be a problem, but I don’t know about the other two.

    most of the christian radio stations around here are small low power church ran ones (next to no operating buget) which fits in with the list of target customers

    BeOS PE

    Presently on the TuneTracker Pages (http://www.beosradio.com/tunetracker/):

    “…for a VERY LIMITED TIME, we are offering the TuneTrackerô System for an even lower price. Order a “pre-release” copy for just $59.95, a savings of $40! And incredibly, we will include the latest version of the Be Operating System, BeOS 5 P.E., which works on most modern PCs, at no charge.”
