Choose Your Scenario

I want to...


  • If you do not know what your Internet upload bandwidth is, you can either contact your Internet Service Provider, or alternatively test your Internet connection using SpeedTest.net.

  1. Using the supplied instructions, setup the Podcast Studio Bundle, connect all the equipment together, and connect the USB Audio Capture Device to the computer. Connect an RCA cable from the CD/Tape output on the mixer to the Line In on the Audio Capture Device.

  2. Download and install the Broadwave Audio Streaming Software. The software will automatically open after installation.

  3. Talking Live: After the software has run through the initial network setup process, click on the 'Streams' button in the main screen, and in the window that appears, select the listed stream 'Broadwave Live 1', and click on 'Edit Stream' to edit it.

  4. Ensure that the correct sound device is listed in the 'Stream Input Settings' window that appears - note that the USB Audio Capture Device appears as its own sound device.

  5. Once this is completed, go back to the main screen and click on 'Connect'. This will take you to a webpage where you can find the http links to your live stream. Once you publish these on the Internet (either publish this page directly or copy the information somewhere else), then users will be able to listen to your live audio stream.

    Recording a Podcast: After you have connected the equipment, and connected the USB Audio Capture Device to the computer, download and install the MixPad Audio Mixer Software.

  6. Go into the Options (Preferences on Mac), and in the 'General' tab, ensure the correction audio device is selected - note that the USB Audio Capture Device appears as its own sound device. You may need to restart the software after changing the device.

  7. In the 'General' tab, select which output device you wish to use for playing back your recordings.

  8. Back in the main MixPad screen, click on the 'A' button for the first track, and select the appropriate recording channel in the window that opens. Now you can commence your recordings.

  9. If you need to mix in other audio files or recordings in to your podcast, simply add more tracks into MixPad.

  10. Once you have completed your recording, click on the 'Audio Files' button in the main screen of Broadwave. Once you locate your file it will be added into Broadcam. Clicking on the 'Connect' button will take you to a webpage where you can find the http links to your podcast.


  • If you do not know what your Internet upload bandwidth is, you can either contact your Internet Service Provider, or alternatively test your Internet connection using SpeedTest.net.
  • Please ensure the call recording adapter is connected to the Podcast mixer and not directly into your computer, otherwise the phone conversation will not be mixed into the podcast recording or live Internet stream.

  1. The initial procedure is the same as for talking without phone conversation.

  2. To integrate your phone into the mix, disconnect the cord from your phone handset and plug it into the RJ-11 socket on the adapter. Then plug the red plug into the Line In socket on the mixer board, and plug the green plug into an output socket on the mixer board.

  3. Once this is connected, you will be able to mix the phone conversation into the mixer board, and be able to talk and listen using your headphones and microphone, instead of the telephone handset.
