Me neither, but if you haven’t checked out Rivendell as a potential automation system for your station, you really need to. It is totally free, it runs under Linux which is also free, it does voicetracking and dayparting and is just the cat’s ass. As a bonus, it works on inexpensive second-hand 64-bit hardware you probably already own.
There is an abundance of YouTube videos of people using Rivendell, if you haven’t seen it in action by now. And there is a guy near D.C. who has been using it for several years.
If Linux doesn’t scare you, and it shouldn’t since everything you own is probably using the Linux kernel to work, check Rivendell out.September 19, 2018 at 6:14 pm #106428sparepartsParticipant

As BillyBurg mentioned, Rivendell is a free (as in does not cost you a dime to use) automation / playout system that runs on Linux, the free version of the Unix operating system.
