I assume that you want to send the analog output from your turntable directly to your over-the-air transmitter as well, avoiding the intermediate digitizing and un-digitizing of using a computer and automation program.
But if all you do is want to stream, with no over-the-air broadcast, then there’s really no point in using the turntable directly. Whether you digitize the tracks off-the air and play them later through automation, or digitize them automatically by using another program on-the-fly, the end result is the same – you get a digital stream.
There’re a lot of advantges in doing it off-the-air, such as the metadata being mentioned earlier, as well as having the ability to edit the data to potentially clean it up, and cut off extraneous dead air at the start and stop of the track.
But perhaps I’m missing something?
