Myriad Radio Software

Myriad is the UK's No.1 radio playout and automation system and can be found in more radio stations than any other system. Myriad is also used across the spectrum of radio broadcasters with our customer base including commercial, community, hospital, internet, student and school radio (see customer list). So the system included in your school radio package is the same technology as we supply to the rest of the radio industry.

But what is a playout system and why do you need one?

The playout system is the heart of a modern radio station. It is (usually) a computer system that is used to record, store and play all the audio content that will be used on your radio station. Think about it like a big, professional 'iTunes' with a whole bunch of fancy tools designed to make your radio station sound great without you needing to do too much work.

The Myriad playout system has been used in radio stations throughout the UK for more than a decade but it is still constantly evolving to provide intuitive, powerful features to enhance your stations sound. Myriad also allows you to easily extend your stations broadcast hours by offering great sounding automation to allow you to continue broadcasting even when everyone has gone home.

The key benefits of the Myriad system are:

  • All music and audio content is stored on the PC and is instantly available
    for playback at the touch of a button. Recorded audio is known as Carts.
  • Presenters can manually play Carts or setup sequences to play
    automatically.
  • Audio can be edited using the inbuilt SmoothEdit feature.
  • Full automation allows your system to run 24/7.
  • Powerful 'Find Cart' features help you find the audio you are looking
    for.
  • Programmes can be planned ready for on-air delivery.
  • 'Live Assist' mode makes presenting so easy, anyone can do it.
  • Powerful advanced features such as AutoHook and Sweeper allow radio novices
    to sound like pros.
  • System is used in hundreds of radio stations so it offers very real
    vocational training.
  • Intuitive interface can be customised to the presenters needs.
  • Schools get the same system that we supply to large commercial radio
    groups.
  • Package includes a full range of supporting tools and products.
  • Package includes 2 additional licenses so more than one group can be working
    on Myriad at the same time.
  • The  Myriad Keyboard included allows you to control an entire radio show from
    one button!
  • Developed and supported in the UK by P Squared Ltd.

Myriad provides a simple, intuitive and customisable environment that will
become the hub for all of your radio station activities. All the music, jingles,
features and programmes that you create will be stored on the system and Myriad
will also be used for playing them on both live shows and automated
broadcasts.

The Myriad Suite included in all of our School Radio packages actually has
all the software you will need to run your radio station. The list below
outlines the role of the software included in the Myriad Suite.

"Students were able to broadcast their work to their friends and parents all over the country and even abroad. The buzz around the daily broadcasts, which ran non-stop was fantastic with a huge range of interviews, comedy, live music and news. "
