filiptb Posted August 25, 2013 Share Posted August 25, 2013 Does anybody else feel that today's radio software could be much better? If so, you could be a great help to me. I am a DJ, audio technician, and software developer, and when I started out doing internet radio, I could not help but notice several shortcomings: - When using a microphone, audio is often low-quality (high latencies, lots of artifacts, noise, pops, etc.). - It's not easy to make a good live broadcast without extra equipment (mixers, processors, etc.). - Current software often has a cluttered interface, making it hard to use. - It takes quite some technical knowledge to get your stream up and running. So, I set out to create a solution to these problems. Progress is going fast, and I'd like to start a free beta soon. However, I'd like to know if I'm making the right choices in design, so your opinion is very much appreciated. Some things that I'm working on: - A much faster, higher quality audio pipeline. Everything sounds professional out of the box, and since it uses ASIO, you can typically achieve latencies below 6 milliseconds, even with an ordinary sound card. This way, you can hear your voice, including any audio processing, directly over your headphones, with virtually no delay. - A very clear, concise user interface. - The possibility to get the whole thing as a service, including stream hosting. There is no need to set up stream hosting separately. After you sign up, you fire up the software, log in, and you're on air. I'd love to hear your opinion on those features, and if you have anything that has been bothering you about today's radio software, or if you're interested in beta-testing the new software, please let me know! You're a great help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
