View Full Version : Can I stream Ableton to Squeeze?

OK, here's what I am trying to do ...

Have a media server running SlimServer locked away downstairs that drives a couple of Squeezeboxes in the house.

On a different PC I am messing about with Ableton Live to mix tracks together and generally pretend I am the world's greatest DJ. It works great but I'd like to listen to what's coming out of Ableton through my Squeeze (not the PC speakers).

I can't find any streaming capability in Ableton, but was wondering:

- Is there a way to stream from my Ableton PC to the media server running Slim and have this played through Squeeze in real time?

- Or could I install a separate SlimServer on my Ableton PC and have it magically stream the sound card output to the Sqeezebox?

Both PCs are running Windows (if that makes a difference). Any suggestions appreciated!

Thx.

H.

Hi,

catch your soundcard output with OddcastV3Standalone (http://www.oddsock.org/) and stream it with Shoutcastserver (http://www.shoutcast.com/download/serve.phtml). Open this stream manualy as a radiostation like every other shoutcaststation.

Don't forget there will be a (potentially significant) delay, so you won't be able to use the output as a live monitor for mixing.

yep ... i just figured that!

think i might just connect the sound card directly to the amp ...

thx for the suggestions though.
