PadTool is a MOT SLS and DLS generator for PAD encoders such as ODR-PadEnc.

PadTool is able to read JSON, XML, text or HTML files and outputs DLS+ text from these information and generates nice SLS with personnalized templates

PadTool is better to use with the ODR-mmbTools tool set, especially with ODR-PadEnc. More information about the ODR-mmbTools can be found in the guide, available on the Opendigitalradio mmbTools page.

Features of PadTool:

  • Reads JSON, XML or text files containing live information of your radio station
  • Outputs DLS+ files compatible with ODR-PadEnc
  • Outputs DAB compliant slides, JPG format with 320x240px resolution, and no more than 16kB sized files
  • Windows and latest Linux versions fully compatible (tested with Ubuntu 20.04 and Windows 10)
  • Easy personnalized DLS text with predefined tags
  • Possible generation of a logo station slide
  • Possible generation of ATC slide (Artist, Title & Cover)
  • Compatible with other plugins (see www.rplusd.io.)
  • Automatic cover art seeking thanks to Discogs API (via DiscogsClient), and iTunes API (via CoverPy).
  • Colors and themes fully personnalisable via CSS and HTML templates
