Well some great news.
It took me forever to get to this point because before I wiped my hard drive I forgot to save my .lst file for Zara Radio, so of course, once I was done transferring all those tunes back onto the hard drive, I had to one by one add all 3191 songs back into Zara’s play list.
Took me 3 days to accomplish this.
Okay stared Zara and started BUTT, I had to enter the volume control’s properties and tick the correct control and the volume bars of BUTT started responding to the music.
So it turns out BUTT is working thus far.
I just have to figure out the correct information for my server and enter it into BUTT.
What is stopping me from going any further is music licensing. I’m not covered for an on line stream.
I still have station promos to do and figuring out how I’m going to feed the computer from the audio processing equipment. Point I am making is if I ever feed an AM transmitter, I’ll need to figure out a suitable way to slit the audio output of my DSP1424P to feed a computer’s line in jack and an AM transmitter at the same time.
I’m really not happy with the C-Quam AM stereo transmitter being in a plastic case and the stereo audio inputs being in the front of this cabinet. I’d prefer them in the back and I’d really like to transfer it to an aluminum or metal case.
I’ve seen some decent 1U cases on line that are often used for broadcast transmitter cases, but drilling the holes for what I’d like to do without a decent drill press is going to be a real challenge. I’d like to add a stereo LED bar meter I pulled out of a stereo VCR to the front of it, but have no clue how I would accomplish a 3 inch wide by 1 inch high hole in the face plate of a metal or aluminum case for such a meter, but it would look cool if I was able to do that.
I know doing this type of project with a hand drill, would result in a hacked up mess!
It’s been a long, long night for me, adding song after song into Zara Radio’s play list, but I got it done.
