Yes but it's not yet released.  A guy I know has a great system that does
all this.  It's currently used to power the automated streams at
www.acbradio.org and his own station at www.bigplanetradio.com.  In
addition to what you mention, it also does narrow and wideband compression
and can read and broadcast in mp3 and ogg vorbis.  It's not currently
available to the public because he has to do a lot of paperwork for his
employer in order to release it, and it's still got some bugs and features
to address.  But it's a great system and it works well.  I know a lot of
you are looking for such a tool, so I'll make sure that you all hear about
it when it's available to the public.
