Announcing the Blast Radio Desktop App (for broadcasting)

This week, we’re excited to officially launch the Blast Radio Desktop App (for broadcasting).

Using the app, you can become a radio host in minutes - just log in, select most any audio input source on your computer, and click the button to broadcast directly to Blast Radio.

Whether you’re speaking to listeners, performing a live set, or routing and broadcasting a mix from audio software, setup is simple and the possibilities are endless.

For in-depth details on how to get started, as well as how to download your broadcasts after the fact, check out our how-to guide or watch this intro video:

A few ways to use the Desktop App:

Use an audio interface, MIDI, or a USB mic

Connect a microphone or audio interface to broadcast a talk radio show or live music performance with ease. Here is a step-by-step video on how to set up a mic and start broadcasting:

Broadcast DJ sets

Quickly route and broadcast DJ sets from audio software like Serato DJ, TRAKTOR, Audacity, and more. Here is a video with detailed instructions on broadcasting Serato DJ sets to Blast Radio:

Broadcast other apps with routing software or a virtual audio driver

With a few simple steps, you can route audio from other applications on your computer to a broadcast. If you’re willing to invest a few dollars to save yourself some time, use a third-party tool like Loopback.

If you’re a little more tech-savvy, spin up a virtual audio driver like BlackHole, ASIO, or Soundflower.

Order your Blast Radio Desktop App here.

Note: If you already have the Blast Radio DAW plugin, you should already have access through the same installer. If you can no longer access the app file through your plugin’s installer, or for help with anything else, email support@blastradio.com.
