View Full Version : Help a broadcasting newbie!
12th July 2006, 01:56
Hello everyone. I have set up Winamp, along with ODDCAST and ICECAST to stream some of my music to my friends.
It works great, but I was looking to get some features, like fading my music before it switches to a different song or being able to change the pitch of the song that is playing.
I tried getting the DSP stacker, with the Volume Control DSP to see if that would do the trick. Although I could hear the fading / pitch changing, my listeners could not hear anything.
Do you know any ways of doing above (fading and adjusting the pitch) for my steam?
Thanks a lot

search for most popular winamp plugins ' dl the first crossfading plugin you find.
Crossfading only works when steaming in soundcard mode
other crossfader plugins for the winamp player are output plugins not dsp plugins

If you are using sc_trans (linux, UNIX, MacOS) which doesnt use the soundcard hardware its built in crossfading is pretty decent. alothough the random play list feature is really lacking.
I dont like DSP stacker , and yes its true you can use a cross fader with your stream to be honest with you SAM3 does a much better job than winamp does. You have dual deck and can queue songs, and control the cross fade. SAM3 is not free $199 USD. check it out at www.spacialaudio.com

Apparently, it has something to do with my soundcard not having the "What U Hear" option. Is there anything I can do?
the what you hear option can also be called
stereo mix or mono mix all depending on your brand soundcard.
this has nothing to do with your crossfading!!

It does. My listeners cannot hear my crossfading, I can. And there are none of those options.

open the sound card mixer, then options, properties, and select recording control.
tick each check box..
what do you have in that list ?
stereo mix is the same as
what you hear
make sure you have winamp in SOUNDCARD input mode and not WINAMP, using winamp mode will not crossfade at all.
I had good luck with a few crossfaders, but I dont use winamp much when broadcasting. Its basicly trail and error.

Like I showed in the other topic, I don't have that option. Here's a screenshot to prove it.

well on your soundcard WAVE should be it then, whats is above MIDI since a screen shot doesnt show the whole thing ??
HMM!!! my soundblaster LIVE! has RECORD MASTER , SPIF IN and CD AUDIO as well as what your screen shot shows.
This is a hardware config issue , not shoutcast.

I have SPDIF-in and CD Digital. Which one shall I use then?
13th July 2006, 20:32
dont understand why you dont have record master, since I do with my old soundblaster live (5.1), about 4 years old.
No clue. tech support for the hardware is your next call.
14th July 2006, 02:12
I posted in the tech forum. Should I use Wave, like you said?
14th July 2006, 04:00
tech foru, for your hardware is what I meant...
I dont think WAVE will work either, because if I select that with my SB live, it doesnt work. I must select RECORD MASTER.

Yes, I have posted in the Creative Labs Support Forums. And ok, thanks for your help, anyway.

On my winamp equalizer using the modern skin i can set the seconds of fade. I dunno seems to work for me

I took the SqrSoft_Advanced_Crossfading_Output.exe its a output Plugin, since you can only use 1 DSP Plugin at the time (or Im wriong?) and you use DSP for Shoutcast.
Inside this Crossfade plugin, you must select the DSP Plugin Shoutcas. Under the normal winamp DSP Plugin section select none.
So the Crossfade plugin send the signal to the shoutcast plugin and this one to the server. ortherwise you hear the crossfades, but the streamers wont hear it.

Does this work with ODDCAST and ICECAST?
15th July 2006, 01:31
dont know.. ask oddcast or icecast support. they are not part of shoutcast at all.

Yes you are wrong
search the plugins for the DSP stacker!

Oki thanks I will.
I work with SAM Brodcaster now. Pretty good tool. Getting slow or consums all cpu resource when handling around 70 000 mp3s. Like upload pictures or generating playlist.
