an audio device into the input of your sound card. This can
be a stereo component, mixer, microphone, etc.
Be careful while Broadcasting with Line-in... if you are monitoring
your own broadcast or listening to something else at the same
time, it could be picked up by your sound card and re-broadcast,
causing an echo for the listener. The sound card's recording
properties must be properly configured.

From the main interface of Pirate Radio, go to the yellow

The volume can be set with the vertical sliders on the mixer
as well as with the pre-set buttons. The volume coming into
your computer may also need to be adjusted. The vertical Volume

the Pirate Radio's graphic indicator!
fader allows for Line In
There is a horizontal slider at the bottom of the Mixer window
which controls how much of the output of your broadcast is made
up of the Live or Playlist levels. Using this slider you can,
for example, decide how much your microphone overrides a song
being played from the playlist when you want to talk over a
portion of a song. If the slider is placed all the way to the
left, it means that all of the output will be devoted to the
Playlist and none of your line input will be heard.
