Sound Quality ?

Hello MB,

 

Sounds ok to Me

Is this a recording of the outgoing sound channel or recorded during listening with your mediaplayer (WinAmp, WMP etc) ?

for reason that the bitrate of the file is 256kbps, so I presume the original file has been converted from your 128kbps stream

 

What kind of compression do you use ? hardware or software ?

Some details about it should be welcome ...

 

About sung jingles :

Make a google search on "Jason LeBlanc Audio Art Café"

Jason is from Texas and does great things at a reasonable price, you can mail him for a demo etc

Visit and listen @ BW !

This is the output rip thru the Media Player (Winamp etc.) so this is the sound that people will hear during listening. And yes - it will be 256 kbit/s high-quality live stream. The original audio files are lossless.

 

For the audio compression - can you ever guess if it's hardware or not? :cool:

Thanks MB,

 

I guess the audio adjustements are made by using software plugins

 

About your 256 stream ... thats awesome for sure ...

just think about the fact that it can create probs to listeners who are connected to the www by using a narrow connection

with 256 you gonna need also tons of bandwidth at your stream provider

I'm curous how you'd reached to this conclution. Too many artifacts? Please, explain in detail. Thanks!

 

As for the 256k Stream - the bandwidth is my least care :) But for the dialup users and the ones over a satelite, gprs or so - i'll bring up a 64k AAC+ stream. 3G is not that good yet, so the 256kbit/s is a no-no if you use your phone, while on the move ;)

 

p.s. my providers will bless me, if the "tons of bandwidth" are caused by listeners and not by 100's of active torrents for example :rolleyes:.

 

The big problem so far is to find the right production for this specific kind of music.

Yep ... your right about the streaming ... however streamrippers are everywhere

 

With conclusion ... Do you mean my idea about the software adjustements used at your stream ... or anything else ?

The audio does remind Me to "sound solution" settings

Anyway ... a fellow BW member gonna be pleased with your project ... Brutisch Sailor (Robert) ... He is also somebody who's using Flac files to broadcast

Check his profile and former posts about his addiction :rolleyes:

Yes, this conclution :)

Do I really sound that bad, if the audio reminds you of "sound solution" settings? :D

 

however streamrippers are everywhere

 

So, what? Jingles are also everywhere so this means free advertising :rolleyes:

LOL ...

NO that wasn't the reason of my conclusion

Into my first reply I wrote that the sound was ok to Me ... so be sure that "ok" means better than "ok" ... so A-ok :D

 

BW is all about broadcasting so ... for that reason my quote ... sharing some knowledge about how to achieve a sound quality is the basic idea of this forum

also for reason that you made your post into "Airchecks ...."

Yes, this conclution :)

Thanks for the opinion. I figured out it's best to put this topic in "Airchecks" as my priority for now is to check (and if needed, improve) the sound quality of my outgoing stream :) If you want I can give you a link (if it's allowed), so you can check it out further. :)

Voila ... thats what I mean

The listen link sounds better than your posted file

 

BW has a member from the South of Europe (Spain) who has the same station callname as yours

 

At your website there is written "Happy Summer" ...

Are you from Aussia or South Africa ? ... just curious ;)

 

At my site there is a page I last updated looong time ago, when it was summer here :) I'll deal with the site in a short while.

 

btw. who is that member? I have a neightbour by country that runs radioextra.fm, so it's possible :) As long as he is not in the same genre I don't think this can cause troubles.

Hello MB,

This is his website http://www.xtramusica.com/

He is broadcasting as FM station at Lanzarote and has also a webstream

His name is Gunnar ...

PS: see your rep status for his account

Good luck !

 

I just saw this site and listened for a while. Thanks for the rep update.

Please, let me know if Gunnar has an account at BW and his username, so we can figure out this issue :)

But so far our radios run in different genres and I hope this won't be an issue.
