I use Drupal to run the djsizzly.com website. There’s oodles of reasons why: It’s extensible, it has some nifty themes, there’s lots of modules that are (reasonably) easy to implement/modify to do whatever you could possibly imagine. Since it DOES let you do anything you want it’s pretty tempting to use Drupal for everything – which I do.
Greetings! Today's lesson on running an internet broadcast is about using the Native Instruments Kontrol S2 and Traktor Pro to broadcast your stream to the world - in other words, how to setup your S2 so you can use it for internet broadcasting. These instructions will work for either a PC or Mac 'cause we're not using any whacky software like Soundflower.
I've run across an awful lot of questions about whether this or that program will let you stream a radio program over the web. The purpose of this tract is to explain how internet radio works so that folks can pretty much answer that question for themselves. All you'll need to do is determine what category the gear you're looking at falls into and then provide the other pieces.
I've never liked the "live DJ" mode that SAMBC offers. There's something about it that just doesn't feel right. I moved to Traktor pretty quickly after I started broadcasting 'cause I liked the fact that it was designed as a tool for live performance. This was perfect when I was just a DJ on Eve Radio.
