Mixxx is a cross-platform Open Source application for DJs.
Installed on a desktop or laptop computer, Mixxx complements your LibreTime server to provide a complete system
for both live and scheduled broadcasting. Although Mixxx has many features designed for dance music DJs
that require beat matching and pitch independent time stretching, the program can be used for any kind of
manually triggered broadcast playout, including live speech shows such as news or current affairs.
Mixxx supports a wide variety of popular hardware control surfaces, which can be connected to your
computer using a USB cable. A control surface might replace or augment an analogue mixer in your studio,
depending on your live mixing and playout requirements.
Mixxx 1.9.0 or later includes a live streaming client which, like LibreTime, is compatible with the Icecast
and SHOUTcast media servers. This feature can also be used to stream from Mixxx directly into LibreTime,
using either the Show Source or Master Source.
To configure Mixxx for streaming into LibreTime, click Options, Preferences, then
Live Broadcasting on the main Mixxx menu. For server Type, select the default of Icecast 2.
For Host, Mount, Port, Login and Password, use the Input Stream Settings
configured in the LibreTime Streams page, on LibreTime’s System menu. See stream settings
for remote input connection details.
You can record your show under butt by clicking the red circle record button on
the left. It will save a mp3 based upon the date and time in your home/user
directory by default.
Everything should now be working and you can broadcast for your entire time
slot. If you choose to stop streaming before it is over click the white square
Stop button to disconnect. Then go to the LibreTime page and if the Show
Source didn’t automatically disconnect you can click it to the right and it
should turn gray.
You are now done streaming.
If you have issues connecting check with your system administrator to see if you
have the details right.
