A roomful o' thumbs-up for Rivendell Radio Automation
. I use it at my day job at a radio network and I use it in my wacky basement workshop.
It doesn't come up to speed in an instant like Winamp and it does take some preparation to get it ready for online use, but it is drop-dead stable (how about over 1,000 days without a reboot?), totally free, and works on a $90 Craigslist computer. Put in a second soundcard and you can have multiple outputs feeding your console (1 fader for the main log, another fader for the "cart wall"). *And* it streams.
It is Linux-based, which may scare some folks off. But the company that manages the Rivendell project has a downloadable "appliance DVD" that installs both the Centos operating system *and* the Rivendell suite onto a blank hard drive (http://paravelsystems.com/appliance.html
). Only a minimum amount of configuration is needed, which can be obtained from a Wiki and from a community of users. But note that this disc will erase whatever is on that drive, so do not install it on a machine you want or need
There are a bunch of YouTube videos produced by Rivendell users that are pretty informative. Search them out and see what it does.
