Edcast (aka Oddcast) was probably the best alternative to shoutcast’s own DSP for sourcing shoutcast DNAS – in fact, many would argue it was superior in many ways. For example, it can also source Icecast natively, not in dumbed down shoutcast emulation mode.
A year ago, or more, I can’t recall, “oddsock” shut down, due to undisclosed issues.
A year before that, however, I’d already tinkered with the code, adding an ASIO version. Primarily for my own, unusual, set up. When oddsock shut down, I decided to step up and continue his work, hopefully improving on it. See Features for some of the things added/fixed so far.
The ASIO support is way better on the latest version of Eddcast Reborn (though it is one of the betas) and it has a limiter and gain boost (so you can run your studio at EBU level of about -10dBFS Max programme level and boost the programme audio at point of TX, (which can now be -0.1dbTP) but use the limiter to catch any accidental “overs”).
I’ve stress tested it by sending +20dBU (analogue) though the TX (grams + jingles channels full on, all 4 players going and the PPM redlined – this is not my normal operating procedure, but it still did not sound too rough raaa
