What No Microphone Input? (RadioDJ)
Every so often we keep seeing requests on the RadioDJ forums from people asking for a microphone button like the one in SAM Broadcaster.
There’s already been several explanations by Marius who codes RadioDJ as to why the program doesn’t offer the same feature.
RadioDJ doesn’t support microphones plugged directly into the soundcard, Because any software processing will add delay and thus, A professional result cannot obtained in that way.
You can achieve much better results by using a sound mixer (with sliding controls) to control the audio from your microphone which is then routed into the Line In (BLUE) socket of the PC.
You have a couple of options when it comes to routing audio to various sources.
You can use Virtual Audio Cables to pick the sound up from line in and deliver the final audio to the encoding software.
There is also Voicemeeter Banana The advanced virtual audio device mixer For Windows.
Which we believe is “Donation Ware” (You make a donation rather than pay for the software)
Voicemeeter Banana Allows you to mix a few audio sources at the same time and you can set it to send the audio to another output (E.G Encoding software)
That’s just 2 options you have for routing your audio.
There may well be other solutions but we haven’t found them yet.
You really don’t need a built in Voice FX button in radio software! When there is other software that will achieve the same results. These pieces of software should also give you a more professional sound.
Remember: Crap audio In = Crap audio on output!
