Audio Processing?

Post by BroadcastDoc » Wed Nov 14, 2007 9:54 pm

What are you using for processing your internet stream? There are a lot of SoundSolutions fans...anyone using "broadcast-grade" boxes, like the Orban streamer or the Telos Omnia One?

I'm not using any processing other than a virtual EQ on my stream. On the announce mic, I've got an EQ and a comp/limiter. If I was to have an outboard box, I'd probably use an Orban Optimod or a dbx DDP to levelize the signal.

Mic processing is nice. Especially on SSB...

If I wanted to go overboard, I'd have a full studio-class audio path for contesting on SSB. RE20 mic, Parametric EQ, Compressor/Limiter, and some kind of multi-effects box in case I wanted to play :twisted:

I love the RE20's! I found that the RE27's work well on AM because they have a little bump in the midrange.

I've got an amazing processing setup here at my netcaster. I have a dedicated computer just for Processing, which takes the feed from my mixer (16 channel Mackie), feeds it through Sound Solution, and puts it to Winamp which in turn streams it using the SHOUTcast DSP Plug-in.

I just set up a netcaster with Sound Solution. It's very nice software!

I use OtsAV with Sound Solutions. I'm continually tweeking the processing, trying to copy Doc's WMYX. 8)

Someday I'll let you in on the secret, and you'll enjoy the glorious sounds for all of 30 seconds before I'd have to kill you for knowing too much! :lol:

Hey, if I send you a link to it, could you tell me what you think it needs? Or do I have to pay a consultant's fee? :roll:

Doc,

Check your PM... I sent the link...

I'd rather not put it out in the public yet as it is in development, but if anyone else wants to critique them out, PM me.

Thanks,
AJ

While the streams I support are not yet public we have a XP box with three Orban Opti-1100 cards with associated software. They are solid cards and easy installs.

How about giving the folks on this board a little taste of the NON public streams?? :D

Must be bored, huh?

I'll release a port for semi-private listening if you're interested...keeping in mind that the liners and sweepers are only temporary until I can voice them myself.

It's an AAC+ stream, so you'll need a "Winamp" type player.

AND its an extreme JackFM type station...we're talking everything from Bach to Brittney

Enjoy...
