13. Mixing

Mixing allows you to blend 2 tracks together.

13.1 LiveIce

LiveIce is the source client for Icecast which encodes an mpeg stream for broadcast as it is created. Unlike clients such as Shout and IceDJ this permits the broadcast of live audio, rather than prerecorded mp3's.

LiveIce is bundled with Icecast, newer versions together with documentation may be found at the website below:

13.2 eMixer

eMixer is an easy-to-use front-end to mpg123 that allows you to play and mix two mp3 streams together. The ability to mix two mp3s makes eMixer act like a cross-fader, effectively giving the user DJ-like capabilities from the computer console. eMixer is also very able in a "real time" party environment. eMixer is based on the original mp3 mixing code upon which liveice's mixing component is built.

13.3 GDAM

GDAM is real-time digital dj mixing software package. Any number of mp3 files can be played and mixed simultaneously. Effects can be added, changed, and rearranged dynamically. GDAM features a client-server architecture; all sound is produced by a server, which receives instructions from any number of clients. Other features include plugins for audio effects and interface components, caching and looping, sequencing, assisted beatmatching, a waveform viewer/beat calculator, contiguous queuing (no pauses between songs when using a playlist), an online help system, an mpg123 clone which runs on a gdam server, flexible command line interface for direct control of server, recording of entire mix or any point in stream to buffer/disk/mp3 encoder, support for multiple sound devices, and support for midi hardware control.
