TWiRT 147 - Stream Processing

We focus on a tutorial of setting up a multiband audio processor for making Internet audio streams sound great.  Kirk explains the various stages of the Omnia A/XE audio processor and the TWiRT team discusses their own experiences with optimizing the sound of streaming audio.  

Plus, Chris Tarr describes his trials with installing an FM translator at a location that already has another FM translator. Neighbors have to play nice and not cause each other interference.  

TWiRT is sponsored by the Telos iQ6 and Telos Hx6 telephone talkshow systems.

What happened to your server? I can not download any of your programs. I used to have no trouble downloading your programs.

I found that if I download something from another site at the same time then I can get your downloads to work. Your programs are not as quick to download but it works.

James, Are you referring to audio or video downloading?

I'm downloading now via the "TWiRT 147 - Stream Processing" link above, but it *is* too slow. I'll inquire as to what's wrong.

I tried the audio (mp3) download link (above) again today and it seems fine now. Download speed is good here.

The trouble that I am having is the with the MP3 files. On the subject of audio files... Why do you use the old MP3 format instead of its replacement? I am speaking of AAC. AAC files are better than MP3 and I do not know of anyone who would deny that fact.

James, you bring up a good point about distribution using MP3 files. I'm well versed in AAC (working for a company that's partnered with Fraunhofer IIS), but it still seems that MP3 is the distribution format of choice for podcasts. Also, many podcasters use free tools to encode their shows, and LAME MP3 is free. I don't actually do the encoding for TWiRT, and I have no control over the file format. I'll be happy to ask, though if encoding in AAC or even HE-AAC would be feasible now.
