Presenting at HLR is much easier than you think!

It’s great fun and you won’t need lots of expensive equipment

Check out what you need below

  • A Windows PC, laptop, iMac, MacPro or MacBook with a wired internet connection and (very preferably) a line or mic input socket
  • A studio quality microphone, stand and cable, with the right plug for your computer
  • We use Sennheiser 825S mics (but there are cheaper alternatives)
  • Stands can be floor standing or desk mounted
  • A pair of wired, padded headphones so that the audio won’t be picked up by your mic
  • We use Sennheiser HD206’s
  • Software to arrange your playlist, mix your music, cue your microphone and stream it to HLR to Live365
  • We use MIXXX which is available free
  • www.mixxx.org
  • You will also need to install the correct LAME MP3 encoder for your operating system

  • Music to play during your show, without repeating tracks from the same artist or album in the same hour
  • Tracks must be in MP3 format, tagged with artist, track, album and album artist
  • Files should be >= 128kbps

  • Software to level your music so that tracks play at the same volume
  • We use Normalizer from Amvidia, but other software is available
  • www.amvidia.com
