Hey! First of all, thanks for making a free version of Stereo Tool available! My station is developing a new music format and to test this we're running a separate stream which needs 'just a bit' of processing so it doesn't sound too dull. The free version of Stereo Tool is perfect for this!

I have everything setup and working, and I use Stereo Tool send the stream to the shoutcast server. All works except sending the artist and title to the server. Our automation outputs a .txt file to 'c:\users\username\desktop\rds.txt' with just a bare formatted 'Pointer Sisters - Jump' (for example) as it's entire content.

I use the default settings as shown in the picture linked below. I tried removing the spaces around the dashes but it didn't help. Am I doing something wrong?

PS: Normally i'd use Edcast for streaming, but using the builtin streamer in Stereotool saves me some audio routing challenges, and would introduce another possible point of failure.

I use the Stereo Tool encoding feature and I'm very happy with it. WHAT VERSION ARE YOU USING? The file-watcher capabilities were added later than the dialog box in Stereo Tool.

I strongly suggest you do not use the hyphen as a delimiter. Hyphens occur in artist and title names, which can throw off the parser. My Now Playing text file (output from the automation) looks like this:

My configuration inside Stereo Tool looks like this:

This setup seems to work pretty well on my system.

Great Hits and More!
