Frustration At Audio Distortion (Sam Broadcaster)

Been watching a topic on the Spacial forums where a long time user of SAM Broadcaster is complaining about really bad distortion on his stream.

“I get a distorted & garbled audio stream with SAM Broadcaster.
I searched the forum and couldn’t find any conclusive troubleshooting on the topic.
I don’t have time for yet another rebuild. I’m tired of rebuilding.
I have to think about whether SAM is right for our station any more”

Winamp Feature Req: Smart Crossfade

A user has posted on the feature request section of the Winamp forums asking the developers to include “Smart crossfading” in the next version.

Winamp

“Smart crossfade analyses the playlist and determines if the songs are in increasing sequential track order from the same album. If they aren’t (like in most random mixes) user defined crossfading is used”

 
Any improvement in crossfading between tracks in Winamp would be welcomed.

Vigilante Stream Monitoring Group?

With everything that’s gone on this past few weeks in regards to the new Licence fee rate hikes.

Ideas For Cheap Microphones?

This is a question somebody asked on the RadioDJ forums earlier today.

“Please could all of you give me some good ideas on cheap microphones I can use with radio DJ that will link into the soundcard of my tower”

 
We’re guessing this guy wants to just be able to plug a cheap microphone straight into his computer and have the audio from that go through RadioDJ

I posted awhile back about people wanting a Microphone input in RadioDJ to bypass the need for a mixer.

Some people seem to think the Input button in RadioDJ is for a microphone. That’s not what the input button in RadioDJ is for…
