What hardware is necessary for connecting external audio sources to AzuraCast?
How Can I Add External Audio Sources (e.g., Microphones, Soundboards) to AzuraCast?
In order to add external audio sources to AzuraCast, users must understand the basics of setting up a web radio station. External audio sources allow the user to control the sound quality of their radio station and provide the listener with an abundance of audio options.
AzuraCast was designed to make it easy to set up a web radio station. Once a user has set up the basic streaming connection, they can look into improving the audio quality and adding external audio sources.
Using Microphones for Improved Quality
Adding a microphone to your streaming setup can greatly improve the audio quality of your station. Typically, a user will need to purchase a physical microphone that connects via a USB connection. Once the microphone is set up and connected properly, the user simply needs to make sure it is listed as an audio source in their AzuraCast settings.
Using Soundboards to Add Variety
Another way to add external audio sources to AzuraCast is to use a soundboard. There are various types of soundboards and they can be used to add audio clips, sound effects, and background music to the web radio.
To use soundboards with AzuraCast, users must first install the audio tool called “Jacktrip” on their own machine or server. After installation, users can connect their AzuraCast instance to the soundboard by setting up a dedicated streaming port in their settings.
Once the connection is set up, users must configure their soundboard and make sure it is listed as an audio source in AzuraCast.
