The information below is presented by our software distribution server which will automatically update and display the latest versions of our software. Please note that all of our software is designed to run on Windows PCs only and requires a Visual Basic .NET environment to be installed. If required this will be installed with the application software on your PC. You need to accept all the warnings and caveats from your operating system and/or security software during installation. Hamilton Sound (and James B Stewart) are not registered software vendors and will be flagged as not recognised in warning messages. You must decide whether you trust us or not.
You are strongly recommended to read the documentation thoroughly before installing or using the software.
IMPORTANT - Software Installation (by clicking on the 'Install Software' link) requires use of MS Internet Explorer. Installation using other browsers such as FireFox or Chrome will not work. If you prefer, we can supply a Windows Installer version - please contact us.
The software should run on all currently available versions of Microsoft Windows Operating Systems but has only been formally tested on versions up to and including Windows 7.
Once installed, the software will automatically check for updates and provide an option to install the new version.
TNProductionAssistant is intended for use by Talking Newspapers in the creation of the final mix and master image of their news or magazine programme.
The program imports individual studio master tracks from a removable media device or HD folder and provides facilities to:
- Edit individual tracks using the TN's preferred digital audio editor.
- Rearrange the playing order of tracks
- Omit specific tracks from the final mix
- Automatically add standard 'Trail-in' and 'Trail-out' tracks
- Incorporate additional tracks from other sources
- Manage and archive all production files
- Create a 'final-mix' master image ready for duplication to listener's media.
The features are highly configurable and should suit most TN's production needs and require little or no specialist knowledge.
