Use VST plugin (compressor) for the Shoutcast streaming signal - problems


first of all I want to write someting about the technical basement:
I'm using Shoutcast to stream the line-in audio signal. Surely, that works perfectly. Now I want to use a compressor VST plugin. In order to realise this, I loaded VST Host DSP v1.0 for WinAmp (Plugin-ID 146317 on Winamp.com) (VST software) and Audio Damage Rough Rider (http://www.audiodamage.com/downloads...php?pid=ADF002) (compressor software).

The problem was, that I have to run both tools at the same time. In order to solve that I installed first MuchFX2 (Plugin-ID 775 on Winamp.com), then DSP Stacker by Spacial Audio Solutions (Plugin-ID 128742 on Winamp.com).

When I use MuchFX2, the compressor only works, when I play files in Winamp - no reaction when there is the signal played for Shoutcast.

When I use DSP Stacker, the compressor doesn't react - no matter if I play the song in Winamp or via line-in. I have no explaination for it, because of the discribtion: "Now you can do normalization, Crossfading, effects & more and still stream to Shoutcast!" - Hm.

My question: Is it possible to use the compressor together with Winamp, when I use the line-in signal for Shoutcast? I want to optimize the signal on line-in before it is send to the server.

Thanks for your help!

My advice if you want to use vst plugins is to pipe winamps output through something like cubase.

Of course you will need a card that supports asio and has good audio routing capabiltys.
