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 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.
Native Instruments released the groundbreaking Traktor 2.5 yesterday. I've been sorta kinda waiting for this release for a while 'cause I think the idea of the remix decks are amazingly cool - even if I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to do with 'em yet. But that doesn't matter 'cause I got the upgrade as part of my existing license. Yay!
The Short Version: This tutorial provides a script that will work with Traktor, Broadcast Using This Tool (BUTT) and Traktor Scrobbler to facilitate sending track metadata to a ShoutCast server when you are using Traktor to broadcast your internet radio show. Traktor only supports Icecast servers and there's no Shoutcast support on the horizon.
