But there is no real "remote DJ"-software yet, is there? I mean, not 
just "autofades", which somehow sound a little bit crazy - but really 
offering them an interface so they can adjust the crossfading, mix 
this together with sounders etc. I've seen this technique once here 
at a local radio station and was quite impressed. But for this to 
work the server would need to send low-quality-audio to the DJ who 
could then make the crossfades etc, transmit this data back  to the 
server and the server then executes the crossfades etc. on the real 
sondfiles on the server. Hmm - sounds interesting :-)) But is there 
already a software-solution for this?
