Wow. That's a damn nice setup :) May I ask you, which software you use for TTS-synthesis? There's a lot out there but for what I know only the paid ones sound natural. Also, which software do you use for playout? And as I don't see a mixer, which solution do you use to transport your audio from the playout software to the sound processor? I invested a lot of time in finding a solution to the latter problem. I wanted to use ASIO to transport my audio from RadioBoss to StereoTool - the .vst-plugin worked but didn't produce a RDS-signal. My solution is to use a virtual sound card (VB-audio) with the WASAPI-driver - sadly this results in significant latency.

For the main 8 Voices I use AT&T Natural Voices.
For the two Australian accents I use Nuance RealSpeak Voices.
For Mr.Angry I use Cepstral Text to Speech.

In the picture you can see Breakaway on the right hand side which takes it's feed from my
Auto-Jock program digitally and feeds the Transmitter Rack up on the roof by an MPX signal.
