Urmel Under "The Fine Print" I read the following information: Your receipt email will contain a link to download and install the software. This will not be accessible after the promotion has expired, so download it immediately.

Where I can download in the future updates for the software?

I will prefer the possibility to change a trial version with a code to the full version...

eb235 I downloaded the trial and my feelings are mixed.

Saturn Radio does work, and has a large number of stations (more than 20000).
But of course not my favorite... Here's a report.

First I searched for it in the list and the search capabilities felt a bit clumsy :
- the results are not given in alphabetical order and are strange, e. g. a search for rtu does give RTU and RTU 89.8 FM but deep down among lots of other stations.
- you can search for Switerland as a country and/or as a... language ! (BTW 3 official languages there : German, French, Italian and a fourth national language : Romanche)

You, or your fingers, have to remind that the mouse wheel operates on the **selected** list, not the one over which the mouse is (it's usual but not really convenient). Thus a simple click means "select a list" and you need to double click to select an item in the list. After a search the list you searched is **not** selected, so you have to click once on any item to be able to use the wheel to browse your search results.

Since my favorite is not listed at all I hoped that Saturn Radio could sniff the stream from the Web URL. It does not but did not promise to. (I found the stream URL from http://fluxradios.blogspot.fr/)

Then the small button "URL" does allow to play the URL in the clipboard.

Finally I wanted to add this new station in my favorite list. I could but the name was blank (suggestion : default to the stream URL). Then I hoped I could modify the station info (right click) but I could only enter a URL not a name. Much to my surprise (but to my delight also) sometime after, when I refreshed the favorite list, I saw the stream URL as the name of my (first) favorite. But the name is still not amendable in the station info window.

The recording capabilities sounded OK. I suggest to add the word stop besides Rec when recording is on (the button goes red but color blind people, too, may enjoy listening to radio).
And I suggest to make the word Close clickable in addition to the black button which may be hard to see on a dark background (same for Minimize)
The volume button is a small challenge to control with mouse movements : it should be controllable with the mouse wheel.

In a nutshell Radio Saturn does the job but could profit from some streamlining. Given its free lifetime upgrade, I think I'll buy to support future development.

CthulhuSaves I just wanted to comment on the "fine tuning" aspect in the description. It's not as unique as implied. It's actually virtually identical to the station browser in WinAmp, which I dearly love and has been free for many, many years. Don't get me wrong, though. This isn't a criticism. Although I've yet to try Saturn Radio (going to grab the trial version), I very much like what I've seen and read about it. Being able to record songs I like that are playing, and that I have no clue what they are, is certainly a desirable addition to what I'm used to, and the classic stereo skin is most welcoming.

I'll be testing this on a "media player" type PC attached to my TV in the living room. Fingers crossed. :)

Kelly Hamblin I am having a very difficult time adjusting anything with those round knobs. Very difficult. Anybody have an idea of what I might be doing wrong?

Believe me when I say I've used a mouse for many, many years. I hope future versions will use something else, like a slider, or something I can move easily and stop where I choose to. This way I fumble around and never get the knob exactly where I want it.

Another thought after reading another post. I've installed a trial from the website. If I decide to take advantage of today's offer, will I have to download and install again?

Kelly Hamblin I rather like the UI. I despise the modern Win 10 look and I'm a real ribbon hater, so this suits me. This kind of thing is very subjective. Lots of work for the developer, I suppose, but I always appreciate UI options. That way twm and I could both be happy. :)

Kelly-knobs work exactly like sliders:Click aknob and move your mouse up or down verticaly.Don't try to emulate twisting or something just move mouse vertically while you are holding it down

eb235 Thank you Alexander User for giving an example of what I meant about Saturn Radio UI.
A knob is something that we intuitively twist.
A slider is something that we intuitively... slide.
If we need to apply the logic of a slider when using a knob, it's counter-intuitive. We can get used to it for sure, but the real question is : do we need a UI that looks like a radio set so that we can listen to a radio player ? As a developer, **you** answer the question the way you want but, as users, we'd feel more comfortable if the UI was more coherent.

Louis H While it would be nice to have a few extra "bells and whistles," such as a sleep timer - or the option to start it as an alarm - the simplicity of this program makes it very attractive to me. It is very much like the radios of old and does that function quite well.

The recording that I have done is at 128kbps and is decent for recording things that really should be bought if I want a higher quality bit rate. There are some stations that do not seem to work, but there are far more that do. I am not sure if the database is updated every now and then, but it does allow setting "Favorites." It does not, however, seem to have an easy to use way to enter your own stations if they are not on the list.

Back to my original comment, it is very simple to use, and I had International stations up and playing within less than a minute after running it. Nothing fancy like skipping to the next song in the playlist, but then that was never a feature of my old radio that I would listen to at night many years ago.

It uses about 44mb of memory and very little CPU power while running. It didn't interfere with anything else I had running along with it. My system is running Win 10 Pro - 64 bit - Insider Preview release. (Current)

I like it!

Thanks Louis that's correct.
You can use 'url' button and click "play from clipboard":First you have to have this link copied.:
http://jazzradio.ice.info...o-high.mp3
From there you can add it to favorites,or use it from recent list again.

Alexander User Database is updated. And although some stations don't always work wast majority does work. Stations may be unavailable for different reasons:server is down,bad internet connection, they are doing maintenance etc...
All I can say is that all stations worked at least once in last two weeks so they are included as active

I don't see much in the FINE PRINT this time so I have to ask if there are any restrictions on the number of computers I can install the program on for myself?

Also, nothing is mentioned about updates which I am assuming are free indefinitely? It the database is updated as you say, will we be notified of these updates and able to run them free indefinitely?

Thank you for this interesting program!

The problem was that everytime I would try to purchase I got an error message screen from your server saying there was an error. NEVER was there anything indicating that a transaction had taken place. Before the credit card I tried PayPal and had the exact same result except that I never went to PayPal to complete the transaction. Your server is really messed up in the purchase area!

Ricky Rick @ Alexander User

How safe is this program seeing that it can connect to radio stations Worldwide via URLs and/or etc. And also seeing that it can only be used while connected to the Internet/Web (which I totally understand why) but it still makes me a bit uneasy.

I tried the download on my Laptop and think it's a great program and want to buy it - but - am somewhat afraid that using the program could somehow lead to catching viruses/malware.

Can you quench my fears by telling me that Saturn Radio is really-really-really safe to use because of how it works that it would be next to impossible to catch viruses/malware?

Hoping for a favorable answer as I do want to buy Saturn Radio!

Thanks,
Ricky Rick

Nico Westerdale @Ricky Rick - please note that the program is fully safe and passes our virus scan here:

As only music is downloaded then there is no possibility of catching a virus.

Ricky Rick @ Nico Westerdale

Nico,

I believe that the program in and of itself is virus free - and even though only music is downloaded when being used - wouldn't it still be possible for some hacker/cracker to circumvent a URL so that when a (certain/popular) Radio Station link(s) is clicked-on that it could lead to an infected URL?

Maybe I'm too paranoid here - but I don't use any programs that have to be constantly connected to the Internet to be able to use them and especially if a program has access to literally thousands of links around the globe.

Am I just being too paranoid?

Thanks,
Ricky Rick

Alexander User Ricky I think chances of such a scenario happening are similar to chances that someone using regular radio would broadcast sound that puts everyone to sleep and than undisturbed go from house to house taking what he wants. That is to say probably possible for an evil genius but highly unlikely:-)

John Buchan I've downloaded a trial and it works fine with sound broadcast through the monitor speakers. I also have a pair of USB connected Bowers & Wilkins MM1 speakers connected to my PC. When I switch the B&W speakers on the sound feed normally transfers automatically to them from the monitor speakers, where the sound quality is much richer. That happens when a listen to a music CD in the DVD drive, for instance. The sound feed from Saturn Radio, however, doesn't transfer. It stays on the monitor speakers. Is there a reason for this?

Loaded it on my DeskTop PC, my wife's Desktop PC and my Laptop.

My wife is a Filipina so it's nice she will be able to get some Philippines Stations.

On my PC with the headphones (USB Sennheiser) it sounds Super FANTASTIC!

Nice proggy. I really-really like it a lot!
