Lifted Legion Productions Posted February 17, 2011 Share Posted February 17, 2011 Thank you for taking the time to read this. My name is james, I know my way around a pc as well as studio equipment however I find that i'm a bit lost when it comes to starting my own radio station. I got a fair ammount of equipment to use, I just dont know where to start. I record, edit and produce music as well as video, what i'm asking for is some advise on how I should go about starting my own radio station because i'm not getting air play from other stations even after repeated requests. Below is a list of what I have to work with, thanks for your time and suggestions. (Computer Equipment) Cable broadband internet. A Dlink 5 port wired router. A Dlink 8 port wired Ethernet Switch. A custom built pc with Windows XP Professional (32-bit), an Intel Pentium D Dual Core 3.0 Ghz Processor, 4 GB of ddr2 ram, two 80 gig HDD's, a 100 gig HDD, a 250 gig HDD and a 1.5 tera HDD. An Acer PC with an AMD Athlon 4400 cpu, 4 GB of ddr2 ram, and 320 gig HDD. Running windows 7 (32-bit). An Acer PC with an AMD Athlon 4400 cpu, 2 GB of ddr2 ram, and 320 gig HDD. Running Vista (32-bit). A Dell latitude d600 laptop with windows XP Professional (32-bit), 512 mbs of ddr ram, a single core 1.6 ghz processor and a 60 gb HDD. (its slow but was given to me 8 years ago and free is a good price.) (Software) Fruityloops 5, Audacity and Ulead video studio 12. (Audio Equipment) A Yamaha PSR-E413 midi keyboard. An Alesis SR18 Drum machine. A 16 channel Electro-Voice EVT 5216 Tapco Stereo Mixer board. A Peavey XM4 Mixer Amp. A Nady MM-15usb 6 channel mixer. A Marshall MXL 990 Condenser Microphone. Two Behringer MIC100 Tube Ultragain Pre-amp's. An ARTcessories Headamp 4 channel Headphone Amplifier. An ibanez bass guitar (4 String). A Dean bass guitar (4 String). A Schecter diamond series omen-5 bass guitar (5 String) A BC Rich Bronze Series Electric Guitar (6 String). A Sony Rack Amp Sound System. (On a side note all of this equipment is in one room and the walk in closet was converted into a sound proof booth for recording vocals. The entire room is run on 2 dedicated circuits and all the equipment is surge protected.) I know that my equipment is not top of the line and is setup more along the lines of audio/video productions but its what I was able to afford at the time and have to work with. I dont know what kind of software I will need to run my own radio station or how to go about it. Also i'm currently unemployed and have no budget to work with. Any suggestions or walk throughs you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated, i'm totally lost here trying to figure out where to start and what kind of software I need. Also I have no clue where to go for hosting and stuff. Thanks in advance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
