Music Processing and Sound of your stations


Recommended Posts

Just wondering out there...what do people use to process the sound (music) of their station, software wise.

Also what encoders do you use? And what bitrate do you prefer for your tracks?

 

Thanks,

JE

I use RadioDJ which is FREE and has some great on board processing for the Audio.

 

My mp3 files are encoded at 320k CBR and we stream at 128k with Edcast (Also Free) to shoutcast and everything sounds great.

 

Never did like the AGC settings on SAM broadcaster.

 

At the end of the day its a case of Crap in = Crap out.

I am confused by your comment. What does "AGC" mean? And I looked at the Radio DJ software and I didn't see how one can broadcast with a live mic. But I will I don't know any better, but is this software just for automation and not for live broadcast as well?

 

You sell SAM and you don't even Know what the AGC is ...... SHEESH! Its that thing under audio pipeline Called funnily enough AGC. i'd have thought for someone Affiliated with Spacial you would at least know what the Program does.

 

 

RadioDJ is A FREE Automation package That's laid out more like a Real Studio automation program should be works for Both live and Auto DJ works Far better than SAM ever will. Yet to have radioDJ crash on me during a live show something which SAM frequently Did.

 

As for Broadcasting live with a Microphone you would route that Through a Mixer and into the Computer and get Edcast to Pick the sound up and Broadcast it. It's Not exactly rocket science.

I actually agree on Gary on this one, believe it or not.

 

If you are selling a product, you need to know how it works.

 

I am simply astounded that you have never heard of AGG (Automated Gain Control). I suggest you read the documentation.

 

Here is the AGC:

 

Config > Audio Mixer Pipeline

 

It's very simple and very basic.

 

I hope your bad experience with your version of SAM wasn't a hacked version you copied off of Youtube.
You need to be more professional than this. You represent a product and / or a company. Act like you do !!

Ok guys, lets not go down this road again and again. Its been done to death. Lets just leave it as everybody uses different software and likes what they use. Most people stick to software that suits theirs need. I myself dont use Sam or Radio dj because they dont suit my needs, but I dont rubbish them. I have tried them both. Lets keep it happy in here and get on. Now lets have a group hug.
