Standalone vs Built In Encoders?
When it comes to automation software do you pay $$$ for a program that has encoders built in or do you use a free standalone encoding program?
I know personally that I prefer a standalone piece of encoding software as I could never get the built in encoders in certain pieces of software to stream properly.
Using a standalone piece of software means I can rely on RadioDJ to do what it’s does best handle the automation & simply just let the encoding program take the strain.
You have more flexibility with a standalone encoding solution. It enables you to use a microphone through a mixer via line in on the computer and Edcast picks the audio up through stereo mix or virtual audio cable.
You can also run it alongside Voice Meeter Banana which then eliminates the need for a Voice FX/Input button in the automation software you use.
So next time your looking at setting a radio studio up remember you can do it for FREE if you use a separate piece of encoding software.
No need for those expensive solutions that aren’t always guaranteed to work!
