Anyone know how to record a live mic and pipe that to icecast ontop of streaming music? I'm guessing you need to send it to ices but so far just getting an external soundcard to work has been a challenge .. I'm guessing there's is no real way to get a universal audio interface working ... but I do have a firewire card and a Saphire pro 40.. granted idk I don't know if firewire is even supported either..

thanks

I am a big fan of the M-Audio devices.

I bet that the firewire device you have is supported too.
Just load the IEE1394 driver into /boot/loader.conf
firewire_load="YES"

Then check dmesg for details. Audacity is a great audio tool for recording.

If you are recording with a USB or FireWire interface, sample rates and number of recording channels must be the same everywhere. Match the Audacity project rate and the number of recording channels set in the Audacity preferences with those specified:

Realtime through Audacity might not be the best choice.
