Interesting, idea, I’m a little fearful of trying something like that until I exhaust all other options.
All of my equipment is plugged into Furman Power Conditioners, so one of the suggestions I was given by Arrakis, the maker of my audio console, was to make sure that everything was plugged into the same power plug on the wall. Since I have two Furman devices, I plugged both of those into the same outlet. Then followed their recommended order to plug each device into the back of the Furman devices in the correct order. When I powered everything back up, I noticed that it was silent and it seemed to me that the audio channel on my console for the USB computer port was silent! I thought it was resolved. Then I proceeded to put my radio station back on air. The first step is to launch “Rocket Broadcaster Pro”, to being streaming, and sound was back. Very disappointing.
My station itself is clean sounding because it all audio devices are from the Behringer UMC 1820. But I use the USB audio device for VoiceTracking, recording into Adobe Audition and anytime I ingest audio into my automation system recorded from the USB device into my automation system, its there.
Since I’m using all of the outputs on the UMC1820, I’m seriously considering buying the Behringer ADA8200 which can extend the UMC1820 by another 8 channels and using those connections instead of USB if I can’t get this sorted soon. I’d rather not spend the money, but I’m getting desperate to get this cleaned up.
My studio setup is quite complex given it all runs on one PC. (Automation, StereoTool audio processing, Streaming, etc). I see that you offer audio consultations where you offer consultations to help make sense out of studio issues. Is this something that you could help with? I want to buy a second PC so that I can run radio automation software on one PC and stream it to a new PC so that I don’t need to route out of the PC, into my audio console, out of my audio console, then back into the PC for the final processing and streaming to the Internet.
If so, it might make sense to book some time with you to lay out what I’m doing, and maybe there’s a better way to accomplish all this. I’m a radio veteran, but not so much with all this PC-related stuff.
