To add new Users, first decide how many additional Users will access your account (if any). Then add a Subscription for each user from the Subscriptions tab. To add Subscriptions, follow the instructions in the FAQ for that topic.
Then add Users. Remember that each must have a Subscription to access features in AudioLogger. Details on how to add Subscriptions are in another FAQ topic.
Finally, click on the Stations tab to select stations to monitor. Follow the instructions in the FAQ for that topic.
How can I add Users and Subscriptions to my account?AudioLogger2021-04-09T11:17:34-07:00
It’s easy to add a new User. Keep in mind that only the account administrator is able to add new Users or manage Subscriptions.
First, make sure there are Subscriptions available in the account. You can see how many you have purchased and how many are used. If you need more, click on the edit icon next to the Subscription you would like to add.
Each subscription added will be billed at the current rates. See the rate on the Pricing Page.
In the dialogue box, choose a tier (Bronze, Silver, Gold) and how many subscriptions you would like to add:
Be sure to save the changes. Then navigate to Users (right-hand column) and click on Invite New Users.
Enter a name and email address. And be sure to assign a Subscription to the User. If the subscription is not assigned, the User will not be able to access features or stations in AudioLogger.
The new user will receive a notification by email to confirm the account.
Each User requires a Subscription.
Users have access to all stations in the account without incurring additional charges for stations monitored. The account does not receive additional stations as part of a User Subscription.
Users added to the account cannot make changes to the account. Only Administrators can make changes.
Which subscription is best for me?AudioLogger2021-03-25T13:54:58-07:00
The best subscription tier depends on how you plan to use AudioLogger.
Here are some typical examples:
Bronze: I want to monitor, archive, and download audio segments for my stations.
Silver: I want to track music logs and playlists, provide segments to listeners, guests, and advertisers via email link, edit audio before exporting, and bookmark segments to collaborate with others on my team.
Gold: I want it all, including the ability to convert audio to video, track usage statistics, use audio fingerprinting, and get advanced automated features.
If you’re not sure which is best for you, start with a Bronze or Silver subscription. You can upgrade a subscription plan anytime.
How do I add a new station to my account?AudioLogger2022-05-02T11:14:55-07:00
Adding a station is possible if you have purchased enough station slots in your account. So first, ensure there are open station slots available.
First, be sure you are on the Company page by clicking on the icon on the left of your screen and notice the Max Number Of Stations in your account.
Next, click on the Stations tab.
Check to see how many stations you are monitoring and if there are slots available.
If there are open slots, you can choose any available station by clicking the box next to that station. if no slots are available, either remove currently monitored stations or change the number of stations monitored. Once the request is confirmed (within 24 hours), you will receive an email notification. Note: There is a charge for monitoring additional stations. Check the pricing page for details.
Important: Remember to SAVE the changes by clicking the SAVE icon at the lower right corner of the screen.
To add a station not currently monitored, click on Request To Add New Station.
Fill out the form, click submit, and we’ll send an email notification when it’s ready.
Be sure to include the URL of the actual station stream in addition to the station website.
Then return to this screen and activate the station.
Again, remember to click SAVE after changes are made.
You will receive an email notification when a new station is ready and your account billing will be updated to reflect the changes, based on current prices on the Pricing Page here.
How many stations can I add?AudioLogger2021-04-04T12:02:27-07:00
Theoretically, you could add every stream in the world, though that would get quite expensive. There is a small monthly fee for each station added to your account.
To add stations, just increase the number of stations monitored in your account. There must be an open slot available to add a new station. After we confirm the increase, you can choose any station already monitored or add a new station through the Add Station Request feature.
I want to monitor a station whose stream is geofenced. Can you do it?AudioLogger2021-04-04T12:05:05-07:00
In almost all cases, yes. We haven’t found a station yet that we can’t access, whether there’s geo-fenced blocking or not. If the station is only allowing access from very local access, there may be a problem, but we haven’t found that yet!
You can add virtually any radio stream from any location, regardless of where you live.
I can’t pay by credit card. Are there other options?AudioLogger2021-03-23T15:57:52-07:00
The fastest and easiest way to set up your account is with the credit card option, but yes, there are options.
We can send a monthly invoice for large accounts. Please note that all invoices are due in advance of services. In other words, we must receive payment before activating your account, and payments must be received prior to the beginning of the next pay period to remain active.
You can also subscribe using barter options, paying the fees with commercial inventory.
How can I get a volume discount?AudioLogger2021-03-25T13:56:11-07:00
AudioLogger captures the audio broadcast by each stream. If the station broadcasts encoded audio in their stream, the recorded audio includes the encoding. This is a major benefit that allows stations to earn ratings credit for on-demand listening.
What stations should I choose to monitor?AudioLogger2022-05-02T11:15:33-07:00
Many studies have proven that online video is much more popular than audio files, even if the video is simply still images. Plus, video is more likely to be shared.
Video can have a dramatic effect on spreading your message, increasing tune-in, and driving ratings. That’s especially true in a PPM market. Listening to encoded audio results in rating credit.
AudioLogger’s audio to video feature adds a waveform element to give the video movement. Other online services charge a premium just to provide this service, but it is included as a feature for Gold subscribers.
Tell Me About The Advanced AnalyticsAudioLogger2022-05-02T11:15:55-07:00
AudioLogger provides a detailed analysis of your audio stream including data that shows when users tune in and tune out. But it goes far deeper. We can also show when they turn the volume up and down and hundreds of other useful data points.
The Advanced Analytics feature is available to Gold subscribers. There is a one-time $999 setup fee. Contact us for more information and to get started.
All of my stations are greyed out. Why can’t I listen?AudioLogger2022-05-02T11:16:52-07:00
You can change stations in your account once per month with no additional charge.
For example, if you want to remove a station and replace it with another, you can do that. However, changes to stations monitored can be made only once every 30 days. Any changes made will lock all selections for the month. So choose carefully and make all changes at one time.
To change stations, navigate to the Stations tab in your account:
From there, simply de-select the station you wish to remove and then select the station you wish to add by clicking on the box next to the station. Remember to save your changes by clicking the Save icon in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.
You can add stations to your account at any time. Each new station will result in an additional fee, prorated to the date the station is added. Changes made during a month will be added to the following month’s charges and a prorated fee for additional days used (in the previous month) will be included. For details on how to add stations, click here.
If you wish to reduce the stations monitored, please ensure the number of stations active in your account is at or below the number of stations you wish. If you’re actively monitoring 10 stations, we cannot reduce your account to fewer than 10.
You will be charged for the total number of stations you have chosen to monitor. However, to reduce charges, you must contact us. Removing a station from active status in your account will not reduce charges. In other words, if your account is activated to monitor 10 stations, but you have only chosen 8, you will be charged for 10.
Can I monitor one station for a period of time, then switch to another?AudioLogger2022-05-02T11:20:32-07:00
You are allowed to change stations monitored once per month. So, if you decide you no longer need to monitor Station A, you can delete that station and add Station B in its place. But any change locks all choices for 30 days. So be sure to think about exactly what stations you will want to monitor for the next month.
For details on how to select and change stations, see the FAQ on that topic.
Why are songs played not showing up on the playlist for some stations?AudioLogger2022-05-02T11:18:12-07:00
Programmers love the music monitoring feature in AudioLogger. It allows you to see any station’s music log and most-played list. But sometimes a station stream is missing information.
AudioLogger detects what song is played in three ways:
1. The info is provided by the station stream’s metadata.
2. AudioLogger captures API information from the station.
3. AudioLogger’s own Audio Fingerprint for the station that actually listens to the streams and enriches it with this information. We are able to match over 40 million tracks.
Most stations include metadata in their stream but some have technical difficulties that result in missing songs. If you find a station that is not displaying the music information properly, please contact us so we can switch the station to another method of matching the song information.
What if I want to cancel? What do I do?AudioLogger2022-05-02T11:18:18-07:00
We don’t think you’ll want to, but just in case you need to cancel your AudioLogger account, just navigate to our Contact Page and send a message. Your payments will immediately be halted, and you will continue to have access through the current billing cycle. For example, if you sign up on the 3rd of the month, the billing cycle will be through the 2nd of the following month.
We do not refund unused portions of a billing cycle.
