  1. Launch Studio365 after downloading the application.
  2. Enter your username and password, check "Remember Me" if you don't want to type your username and password every time you launch Studio365.
  3. If this is your first time using the software, you will be taken through a series of brief questions to assist in your first broadcast setup. The steps are:
    1. Choose to create a new playlist when prompted.
    2. Enter a name for your playlist. This name will not be seen by your listeners - name it whatever you like.
    3. Enter a title and description for your broadcast. This is a good opportunity to "sell" your station to prospective listeners, the text you enter will be crawled in Live365 searches. Your title and description will also appear in our directories and your station page.
    4. In addition to the title and description of your station, the default search also optionally includes a string search of keywords specified by you.
    5. Minimum Connection Speed determines the minimum connection speed your listeners must have to listen. T1/DSL/ISDN/Cable is the best audio quality. You may change this choice at a later date but you should set it before uploading your first MP3 tracks.
    6. Tell us where to list your broadcast in the directory - stations stats, search results, and a variety of other broadcast criteria are based on your primary genre. You can change this setting any time.
    7. Shuffle play ignores the order of the tracks in your playlist and plays the MP3s randomly. This is optional and can always be changed.
    8. URL is the link (on the player window and your station page) that sends your listeners to your personal website if they wish to visit. This link can be updated anytime.
    9. A final dialog box will provide a link to further information on creating and maintaining your playlists. Bookmark these links for future reference.
  4. The Studio365 Main Window will open.
  5. You will first need to add tracks to your Online Track Library. Please see the guide to upload tracks to your Online Track Library. When you have uploaded some tracks, proceed to the next step.
  6. You will then need to build a playlist. Please see the guide to creating a new playlist. When you have created a playlist, proceed to the next step.
  7. In the Station drop-down menu, select "Start broadcast" and you'll be on the air!
