The following is a guest post from Herman van der Veen, CEO of CamelWeb Creations, the company behind a jingle player App for iPad that is used by thousands of radio DJs around the world.
Nowadays when you’re using jingles in your radio show you have various options to play them back. When I just got started at a local radio station, I learned how to use a set of tweezers to adjust the start point of the jingle on an audio cassette in a slightly modified cassette player. In time life got easier with the introduction of the mini disk, quickly followed by playback software on a computer.
When many years later I bought my first iPad, I was surprised that I couldn’t find any jingle player app for it. In my mind the iPad was, and still is, the perfect device to have a soundboard type of application. When I didn’t find anything remotely usable I decided to develop one myself. The fact that I’m the proud owner of a software development company, made it possible to give meaning to “I’ll do it myself”.
The result emerged in 2012 as i-Jingle for iPad. A screen full of player buttons, organised in columns and categories, that offer instant playback of any MP3 or WAVE file you loaded onto your tablet, with the touch of a finger.
By carefully listening to our customers we’ve managed to further develop and improve that first version into what is known today as i-Jingle 2.0 and i-Jingle PRO. The PRO version offers many features such as looping, ducking, extra presets and volume sliders on each column for on the fly volume control. With i-Jingle on your iPad you can prepare your show at home and come to the studio with your material sorted and ready to play.
One of the best features of i-Jingle is that our entry level version is available on iTunes as free download. It’s a great way to get familiar with our jingle player and when you need more, you either upgrade (in app purchase) or go PRO. Keep in mind that no matter what version you choose, i-Jingle always offers beautifully designed functionality and unmatched quality and combines it with lightning fast customer support.
