BoomBox v3.2

BoomBox is the code name for our cutting edge Radio Automation Control Panel for Professional and Terrestrial Radio Stations. Designed from the ground up to run on any device that can connect to the Internet, BoomBox enable the management of all aspects of Station Automation and Popularization.

BoomBox is under constant development and although stable, we encourage users to contact support immediately with any issues that may arise.

Top Menu

The top menu in BoomBox ergonomically displays real-time System and Station Information as well as giving the operator immediate access to BoomBox features and configuration settings.

Dashboard

The Dashboard menu option gives the operator quick and intuitive access to all common Station Operations, Information and Statistics [more: Dashboard Section]

Panic Button Feature

The panic button (heartbeat icon, upper right menu) feature executes repair routines that will fix issues most commonly reported by producers. Here is a list of repair routines:

  • Repairs directory permissions
  • Synchronizes Passwords (Services, FTP and Account)
  • Rotates Service Logs
  • Cleans Temporary Directories
  • Re-Writes Service Configuration Files
  • Restarts Services (Server, AutoDJ)

While the panic button feature will not repair all issues, it does allow producers to help themselves quickly without going through the process of contacting the support team and is recommended to try first before submitting a support request.
