We don't use it for News casts but for short audio play outs we have Stinger (from BSI) and I'm pretty sure it may work with WIN 10, though we use it on WIN 7.

I second Burli.  It's a bit of an interesting workflow to get used to, but it's VERY powerful, and the Canadian dudes behind it, provide amazing support! :)

Hello Joel,


We use “Sports Sounds Pro”, but I’m not sure if there’s a WIN10 version of it.  Sports Sounds gives you multiple pages of hot keys for audio cuts.


Thank you for your support!

I'm interested in finding out what software your newscasters use to play actualities and wraps live on the air.


We currently use a custom program that lets you build a list of news cuts and then auto-pauses between them, waiting for the news anchor to click "OK" to start the next cut. It's a really nifty program which allows adding audio files on the fly while another cut is playing. Problem is, it doesn't work on Windows 10. (I've tried the compatibility settings with no success.)


I'm trying out AP SoundDesk right now but it doesn't seem very user-friendly comparatively.


I would really appreciate any alternate software suggestions.
