    For a variety of what must have seemed like good ideas at the time, I've been tasked with setting up an internet radio station. Way back when that meant winamp and shoutcast, but I'm guessing we've progressed a bit since then + I need the functionality of mixing two music streams dynamically ( voice over marketing announcements ).

    Does anyone where have any experience they'd be willing to share? I'm looking at liquidsoap + icecast, but if I'm really barking up the wrong tree I'd like to know sooner rather than later :D

    DAW -> Virtual Sound Card(of your preferred flavour) -> butt -> IceCAST server

    This setup gives me the most flexibility when streaming live events.

    I like REAPER, but anything would work.

    Just buy a hardware appliance that will connect to ice/shout cast and you're good to go.
