Mixing Board Recommendations?
« on: April 10, 2017, 09:46:00 AM »
Hey everyone.

I broadcast using winamp, edcast and a plantronics headset.

I'd like to move to a mixing board with a standalone mic so I can voice over my stream. Looking for something that does the job without being too expensive. Any recommendations for a board and mic?

Also, do I need a second sound card? How about an external USB soundcard? Is it needed to feed the initial winamp stream into the mixer before it goes back into the second sound card for broadcast?

Thanks for the help  :)

I've been using a Behringer UB802 for years.  It's not expensive, and does a great job.  For a microphone, you can never go wrong with the Sure SM58, but you may also want to look at the mics at Heil Sound.  As for the rest of your question, I can't help you.  I've been using SAM Broadcaster for years and am very happy with it.

You probably will do well to get something used (to save money), and small (to save space).

I don't know if they still manufacture the tiny ones like I have -- a Behringer Eurorack MX802A. I've had mine for years.

I never used it for live input for my webcast, but I've used it for vocal recordings, stingers, and station drops.

Worked well for my purposes.
