Maybe something general about the new software strategy. We know that there are many professional radio people out there using our software and all of them know exactly what they want and need and how professional radio automations work. Most of them were happy with our DRS 2006 V2 and also with the Enterprise for a long time. Simply because we built in what they wanted. But what we have seen in over 10 years of experience is that DRS 2006 was a total overkill for the majority of people trying it. You actually had to know quite a lot about radio and software structures, databases etc. to operate the complete DRS 2006 system. Or you at least had to read a few manuals. It took time to find out about all the functions. We actually have clients with the professional package who do not know how to use all features after 8 years.

This is the reason why we wanted to make a basic software anybody can operate in minutes. You read in your songs and away you go. Get broadcasting in minutes. This is the point where people accept the software and buy it. The interface is clean and easy and full screen on any resolution. It looks like other softwares so the people do not have to search long for the basic functions.

Later on they can explore more functions or find useful plugins which we offer. This is also the stage where we want to satisfy the professional users. There will be a lot of extra plugins which can be integrated and which will do all sorts of stuff the Enterprise or the Professional Package did. And of course the things we planned in the Enterprise and even more....

This basic version should do what the old Standard Package with the encoder did. And it should do it much easier and faster. This software already is enough for 90% of the users. Believe us, we know what we have sold in 10 years. If we now put all sorts of functions and expressions in this software, most people will not understand it and simply not buy it. It does not make sense to make a huge software with all the bells and whistles and sell it to 10 people which appreciate it.

We simply want to reach any kind of user with this software. Not only the Pros. So we will keep this basic version as simple as possible with the functions you really need to get broadcasting. This is a VW. Simple, but reliable and easy. Everything is there where you expect it. And believe me. Those who want the Ferrari, will get the Ferrari :)

Hey, Mark!

Can't wait to see what you've done! While we're waiting for the Ferrari, is there a manual for the Beta? I like to visualize. See what the system does.

Thanks

Mark,

I just wanted to let you know, everything is working perfect on Windows 8!
V4 is incredible. I'm having the same thrill about radio that I did years ago when I started my career. Then, when I bought the Standard Package back in 2005 or 6. And, then the Pro Package, and then played with the Enterprise. Each phase gets better! Since I just got the Upgrade License, I know this weekend my bride will be a radio widow. [Cheaper than Golf, she says]
This is not just a business tool for me, it's a creative outlet. And, a fun one.
Thanks,
Stashu

That sounds great and makes us happy :)

We will work a little more on the software to make it perfect before we publish it in all public directories, magazines etc. And of course before we tell all other DRSers which haven't seen it.

But I think we are close.

Thanks for all your help!

Hey Stashu and Mike. We have built in an exception handler so we can find out why the software crashes on your older XP machines. We have also done a small fix during the initialization, so maybe it is already fixed. Tell us what your older machines say. Thank you!

OK, the automatic updates for the full version is now working. First version which will automatically update is 1.0.100.51.

Mark,

When there is a new version, and we have the 4.0 upgrade not the demo, how do we get the new version?

DRS 2006 will check on startup and download automatically if you want. It will then close the software and install the new version without your settings being lost.

Mark,
When I downloaded my full version, I believe it was Build 48. What is the procedure to get the latest, Build 51?

Hey, simply download it at the same location that was in the order mail. We always update the main download however with build 51 the auto update will also work.

V4 is incredible. It's everything I liked about 3.0, simplified and intensified.
