The Original Button Box Cart Player software was designed to meet the needs of fast-paced “Morning Zoo” type morning shows. They needed to play sound effects, jingles, voice drops, recorded phone calls, laugh tracks, and hundreds of other elements instantly. Typically they were used as a standalone program, separate from the station automation system.
Internet radio broadcasters discovered the Button Box and liked it. They asked for more advanced features and we developed the Button Broadcaster Pro and iBroadcaster. But the original Button Box is still popular with some Internet radio broadcasters who don’t need all of those features. Compare the three with the chart at the bottom of the page.

Setting up your library is a breeze. On the right side of the screen is the library. The top row is a set of tabs for your audio categories and the second row of tabs are for subcategories. Below that are 49 individual buttons for audio files. Need more? Add a new sub tab.
To load your library, just set up a tab and sub tab and drag audio files from anywhere on your computer. Take as many as you want, if you go over the number of buttons available on the sub tab, the software makes a new sub tab automatically.
The button labels are automatically filled in, too, too – but you have complete control of the text and color of every button, tab, and sub tab. You can also drag buttons anywhere in the list or onto a new tab or sub tab.
Of course, disc jockeys need to be able to find a cut fast, so there is a quick search function, too.
