Processing can get very complicated when a station streams stereo and/or mono, and transmits AM and FM stereo and/or mono.
Mine is even more tricky because I have a shortwave mono AM transmitter.
The only processing I have at the present time is not a “one method serves all” solution, as it is set for the AM medium wave transmitter feed.
Don’t forget bandwidth. AM medium wave radio can be set for 5kHz up to 10kHz bandwidth, with narrower bandwidth allowing farther distance, and wide bandwidth requiring a closer stronger reception.
Streams have very critical bandwidth limitations, if we exceed the kilobyte-per-second rate (I’m at 56kbps right now) the sound will be terrible for the listener.
Anyway, I use the Stereotools Plugin by Hans van Zutphen, and it does a super job of limiting, compressing, AND setting the bandwidth!
But I am only able to run one-instance of Stereotools in the chain, so it is set for about a 10kHz bandwidth (for AM).
I sometimes try to think of ways of solving my need for several separate processors to solve each need, but I don’t know.
Maybe this thread will provide solutions?
