uCart 3 SlotsuCart is a free application for playout of jingles, sound-effects and other audio in a radio broadcast environment. It mimics a traditional NAB cart machine but without the wow/flutter and re-cue time! Loading a slot can be done by dragging a file from Windows’ Explorer or the built-in File Browser. Slots can be ejected after playback if desired. Sequencing of slots is also possible – Enabling you to fire up to 6 carts in sequence with just 1 click. Remote-start via joystick is also supported.

A File Browser with 8 preset “Cart Racks” allows you to easily move between your favourite folders of audio/jingles. When loading WAV files, the CartChunk information is read (Artist/Title, CutID, Outcue, Start+End Date, Category) and MP3 files have their ID3v2 tags (Artist/Title, Year, Genre) read. The duration of the file is also shown.

Fancy something a little bit extra…?  If you like the software and want to add some extra functions to uCart, there’s a 3x Triple-Stack set of Cart Slots plus JMD file (managed using MyLibrary) read upon payment of a one-time £10 donation.  There is a Machine Code shown on the startup screen, I’ll need this from you to generate an activation key.

  • 9 Cart Slots
    Can be started via F1-F9 or using any joystick interface
