Live Music Trial

This is major off topic and located in the right place for off topic posts.

One thing I\'ve never done that I always wanted to in SL since 2005 was play music live in-world. I\'ve not had the time to accomplish it, and I don\'t know much about how to get a good sound into SL or OS to be honest, but I\'ve always wanted to try, and believe I have the right interfacing to accomplish it.

My system is simple, it\'s a decent professional setup that would be PA hooked up via a Mackie onyx 1640 into a self built machine via firewire on GNU/Linux. I have installed and tested for recording purposes the firewire and it does fine per track etc.. and recording. It does super as a 16 channel input to the machine on Linux. I guess my questions is how to get it out live as played through the PA to OpenSim? I don\'t have my own server at the moment (on the web), so what would be needed to stream into the test grid? Does it require a streaming software as you would stream your waves such as icecast?

I know very little of how this works. I\'ve ran an icecast server before and had my own songs recorded streamed, but I am not at all sure I understand how live streaming is done in-world.

I would like to try this as a test on the photo50 test grid if that\'s okay, and of course as time allows. If anyone knows how live performances are setup, if you know the needed hardware and configs, please let me know your secrets for live performance within opensim or sl.

Hi rjspence

I once had shoutcast running on one of my servers where I connected with winamp\'s shoutcast plugin to it and streamed music into my parcel in SL adding my shoutcast server url as the music url in the land properties.

Streaming music can cause quite a bit of traffic but I think we could go for an experiment on my demogrid and see if I still can take it ;) <img src=\"{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif\" alt=\";)\" title=\"Wink\" />;) In the next days I\'ll have a look if I find an up2date version of shoutcast for linux.

You do shoutcast and dsp, but you also icecast and peercat .

The advantage of icecast is is broadcast with mp3 extension. mp3 and the advantage of peercast dissemination peer to peer that allows you an unlimited number of listeners without cluttering your band pass.

Good Luck! :P <img src=\"{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif\" alt=\":P\" title=\"Razz\" />:P

Thank you for your replies. Yeah, this was something that I had hoped to try. I will be proceeding with this as time permits if all okay. And it\'s mostly trial and error.. error always being on my end. :) <img src=\"{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif\" alt=\":)\" title=\"Smile\" />:)

I did some recording and it\'s coming alright. But I still like the idea of trying this completely live into os. So I guess I\'ll work on it as I have some time.

Thanks photo50 and djphil!
