This is just a test for Rochelle Lockridge, who is getting her chops as a new DS106 radio DJ. It’s been a really really long time since I used Nicecast, so I just took a few minutes to refresh myself for the set up I used previously for being able to DJ music and cross fade with audio.
It’s pretty much what I wrote before as my first guide to Nicecasting.
This is the setup I just tested (running the local server and setting the archive on means I can record a test session and verify)
And the audio walkthrough I did mixing me with some ACDC Sin City playing in iTunes
The steps are:
- Start a broadcast (test with server being the local one)
- Set your source to be your mic
- Open Effects and install the Application Mixer, if settings do not pop up, click “edit”
- Select iTunes (or another source) to be you Application.
- Click the Hijack button to grab that as audio (you may get a notice about having to quit Nicecast; it’s better to use the option to install the Instant On thing, this not only keeps you from restarting, you can swap applications in the middle of a broadcast)
- Use the sliders to go for all mic (source) or all music (Application) or somewhere in the middle to mix
- Do not check the monitor box, that only lets you hear the application all the time.
