I’m not an expert, but if I recall correctly, Breakaway Broadcast doesn’t come as an ordinary “plugin” (that is, a DLL which is loaded into mAirList, and which processes the signal directly inside the mAirList process), but it is rather a separate application that records from one soundcard, processes the signal, and then plays it on another soundcard. These “pipelines” are nothing but virtual soundcards.
What is your audio setup with mAirList? Do you use a mixing console, that is, are you recording from Line In? Or do you use the MIC button in mAirList? Or just 24/7 automated playback?
Then set the playback device for all players to the Breakaway pipeline in mAirListConfig (if I’m not mistaken, the pipelines will be listed along with the physical soundcards in the dropdown), and also the Encoder Line Input to the pipeline.
Don’t forget to press the LINE button in the mAirList encoder status.
Stefan’s approach (with the LiveLink software) looks more promising, because you can just add it as a Winamp DSP plugin to the encoder soundprocessing chain. No need to mess around with pipelines. I would try that first.
So if you don’t mind me asking, what does Breakaway do and how does it benefit the processing chain?
I currently outboard my processing to dedicated hardware, before it returns into mAirlist for the stream encoder. But I’m always interested in new tech that could possibly improve, or add some extra punch!
I have some issues with this, so let me double check:
Master out goes into the input line of the dedicated processing hardware. The processed signal is than returned to Mairlist line in ( or mic?) input. Encoder is set to line in or mic ( direct sound I assume)?
I have tried something similar but I get no sound from the Mairlist PC using the on board sound card which is fed by the processed signal.
