Moreover, Nicecast is also capable to split the sources between channels or limit the audio capture to any given device.
The Info panel allows you to name your radio station, write a short description, provide a web address and radio genre. You also have the option to display in the listener’s player the name of the artist, album and song title.
Mix in DJ commentary using various voiceover effects
By accessing the Quality slide panel, you can choose between different audio quality presets or create your own custom preset based on the speed of your Internet connection. Thus, you can change the bitrate, sample rate, number of audio channels and CPU usage and quality ratio.
