Not Sure Where the Problem Lies...
I've used Winamp/Shoutcast with the DSP plugin to broadcast both streaming music and live broadcasts over my radio station. Lately, the sound through my station has been fading in and out (i.e., the treble will go out for a few seconds, then pop back in). It *seems*, at this point, that the problem is with the radio and not with Winamp/Shoutcast, because when I turn off the radio and just listen to the music through Winamp on my computer, it sounds OK.
However, my live broadcasts (of a local band) have had some serious sound quality problems suddenly, which seem to be input (mic) related. This band used to broadcast just fine, but now the sound is all distorted, I get horrible squealing noises, etc. It sounded like the band was coming in too loud through the mic--so I've tried new mics, adjusting the mic settings, input settings, but to no avail. The fact that this came out of nowhere--I hadn't changed any of my previous settings--makes me think something has suddenly stopped working or has gone out of whack, and I don't know where to start to look.
Has anyone had a similar problem with their radio broadcast suddenly sounding cr*ppy? Is it completely the radio/server, or is there some sort of compatibility problem? I've downloaded Winamp and the DSP plugin again, changed radio servers several times, and nothing seems to work.
