The BMS Business Music System is a powerful hard disk based background music player. The BMS is designed specially for business background music and announcements (in-store, in-venue and in-office music). The full list of features are designed to do exactly what you need to do, without the gimmics. Mixes music tracks seamlessly with automatic cue-in and cue-out time scanning. Integrated CD ripper for loading of music direct from CD. Supports wav, mp3 and many other file formats. Auto-playing optional recorded announcements at set times or at specified intervals in addition to manual user-play announcements. All users on the computer network can play and even make announcements at their desks. Optional microphone connection with automatic music fade when plays or microphone page is activated. Date, time and day of week music track and announcement validity checking. Automatic time of day volume changes (when, for example, your business might be noisier). Optional password protection when you need to restrict access some functions. Adjustable music / announcement volume balance (so the announcements can be louder than music). Digital signal processor included within the software includes a dynamic range compressor and an active EQ for great quality sound. (These alone can save you thousands of dollars in audio system equipment). Stores up to 4000 music tracks (more than the average radio station). Complete logs of all music tracks and all announcements played.
