    Can you explain in detail what you mean by radio mix. A radio show is not necessarily a radio mix. You can create any audio in any software and use the medium of radio to broadcast it. There is no specific software to make a radio show or radio mix. But I can tell you that the preferred DAW of radio pros is Adobe Audition. But... the best software to sort your tracks for bpm beat-matching and key-matching to make a 'mix' (for playing anywhere) is Mixed In Key. You could then use any DAW to manually mix your tracks. Others might mention Traktor and other software. But you should deal with my first sentence so we have a clear idea of what you want to do.

    Any method to mix quickly tracks not recording the mix output from the mixer?

    If you were thinking about ways to create a playlist of songs for radio, Sadie, or RadioBoss would be a tempting solution. Both of those are commercial packages. There is one other, which is completely free, called Radio DJ.

    Not entirely sure what you mean, do you want to export/render your song in your DAW?

    He wants to live stream the mix of multiple tracks, not streaming the already recorded mix, amyright?

    This will depend the software you using for broadcast, some support it some not.
    And the server, wich will be ice or shoutcast (both runs on linux, im talking by experience).

    you can use a line in in a linux jacked box, to stream via butt the alsa2jack audio layer (wich means whatever youre listening in the system at the moment), nicecast on mac does the same, and ALSO have its own builtin server, wich makes the server above irrelevant.

    In my setup here, i got this netboot jacked linux, receiving a line in from my mixer, (it also have a usb audio interface) and it send audio in my network to another server, wich has a 8000 tcp ip door route in my wifirouter.


    i think that is it. gimme my medal.

    It's unclear what you're aiming for here, but I'm guessing a Radio Soulwax type approach, as done by 2 Many DJs? They broadcast mixes from 20 minute to more normally an hour, to even 3-4 hours. They do have a player somewhere that cycles their latest mixes 24 hours a day so it's kind of a 24/7 radio station. Not sure if they actually broadcast it on radio (as in old school radio) any more. They used to but may now do it all online to have their custom videos to features with the mixes.

    [EDIT] They no longer air it as they used to because they've now signed up to Beats 1 and have a shows called "2X2" on there now, which is essentially same as Radio Soulwax was.

    You need to be aware though, if you mean 'proper' radio, as it out there in ethers, you will need to spend thousands to license certain band waves for use. There are some free bands, but these tend to be very low or very high frequencies reserved for commercial RF equipment, i.e. induction loops in theaters and so on, or for like of taxi cabs and such, so would be clogged up and also only tend to be limited in the distance they can cover due to lack of repeaters of these frequencies built into the radio network infrastructure as they're not designed (or licensed) for long range use. This is how I understand it anyway. Also, it is by buying this license that radio station can call themselves and be confident of their band level, such as BBC Radio 1 94 to 99FM in UK, as an example.

    There's obviously the other method a la Radio Luxembourg, Radio Moscow or Radio Caroline, but best not mention them any more here.

    My problem is easier than you are thinking about. I just try to know if there's any software to mix 2 extended mix version of tracks together like an "automatic dj" (i can say this?)

    If you want it to sound good, Use DJ Software. They have BPM detection & crossfading. SOme may have an auto-pilot mode.
