How to broadcast, or podcast using osx with out too much hassle

This will be a sticky, that is, always at the top, post. This ensures that who ever wants to read this will not have to find the post barrier amongst all the other posts on the podcast blog.

to broadcast from the mac with out too much haste if you don’t want metadata showing, or to do a live remote where you don’t need meta data showing you will need

  • sound flower from http://code.google.com/p/soundflower
  • >vlc or the player of your choice. (I’ve used iTunes as well, but you need another external sound card just in case).
  • Line in (free) from this site
  • Garage band ($14.95) from the mac app store
  • Nice cast $59 from this site
  • and if you are going to do a podcast using this set up you will need the recording software of your choice. I use amadeus

Steps

  1. Install sound flower. I don’t recall if you need to restart your system or not but follow the prompts.
  2. Install line in I’m not going to go through the steps as the user should be familiar with installing apps to a mac.
  3. Install nice cast.
  4. Launch line in
    • A. Choose input as sound flower 2ch and output as your internal sound card or an external if you have another one.. I use an mimic usb sound card.
    • B. Check the pass through check box and you will be able to hear your sound. This is useful if for some reason like if you use iTunes you want to set the output in mac itself to sound flower 2ch. You will then need to switch voice over to another sound card (lion and higher). As a side note you can get to the sound prefs by hitting option plus f12 or if you have fn. keys toggled on fn. option f12.
  5. Download garage band from the app store.
    • A. Start garage band and choose voice for the template
    • B. go to its prefs and go to output.
    • C. Set the output to sound flower2ch and the input to the mic of your choice.
    • d. delete all tracks in the project and create a new basic track, or use the existing one
    • E. from the track you want to use go to the track info area and interact.
    • F. choose stereo 1/2 from the pop up button.
    • if you want the mic on choose on with out feedback. This control will must and unmute your mic. when you are done speaking choose off, or none. Refer to the prior step when you want to broadcast
    • G. Save the file you just created. I called mine mic for broadcasting.band. You will need to set your output and input every time in the prefs or check to see that they have been retained before every broadcast/podcast.
  6. launch your player of choice (not applicable to iTunes) and set its output to sound flower 2ch
  7. start nice cast
    • A. set its source as sound flower 2ch. I’m assuming you already created the preset for the server you are to broadcast to.
    • B. with all of this launched hit cmd b to start broadcasting and check to archive if you want from nice cast and test the server to see if you are connected or have someone tune in and listen to see if you are.
    • C. I usually start with the mic off, that is with the monitoring off. in garage band, play a track or 2 from my player and then turn the mic on by changing the setting in that pop up button to on with no feed back.

and that’s it. It seems like a lot to do, but if you are fast fingered you can put on a successful show.

Attached is the file I use. Enjoy.

blog post: a tribute to my guide dog gatsby

When I first received Gatsby in 2004 I had no idea she would touch my life and leave this indelible mark on my heart. She helped me gain confidence in my travels, she would amuse me with her antics and a lot more. Gatsby even helped my brother, Rakan, place in a Reflections contest in 2005. So many stories and memorable moments.
You’re probably wondering why I’m sharing this.
Today, February 1st, 2017, my lovely Gatsby journeyed over the rainbow. She wwill be greatly missed. She brought so much into my life as well as my family’s. Her sweet energy permeated throughout the entire household. Her Unconditional love, uncanny ability to comfort me when I would think all is lost. Of course tears as she chewed up my braille blocks I worked so hard on many years ago. She takes away a piece of my heart. An empty spot sits in her honor. She will be missed by not just myself but, by others whose lives she’s touched. Farewell my Sweet Gatsby💜

The Great Gatsby, born August 8, 2002. Passed February 1, 2017.
