CRC-DabMux is the free open source DAB Multiplexer developed by Communication Research Center (CRC) from Canada. It is used in command line.
Description can be found on http://mmbtools.crc.ca/content/view/39/65/
Source code is now released (since September 2008).
When building from the source code, be careful to disable debugging, otherwise there will be lot of wasted CPU usage:
./configure --with-debug-malloc=no --disable-debug
CRC-DabMux depend on libfec from Phil Karn. From recent versions of Ubuntu (10.04), libfec has a compilation error (" fec.h:267: Error: bad register name `%dil' "). Here's a workaround by Pascal Charest from CRC, on line 267 from fec.h: Replace
__asm__ __volatile__ ("test %1,%1;setpo %0" : "=g"(x) : "r" (x));
__asm__ __volatile__ ("test %1,%1;setpo %0" : "=q"(x) : "q" (x));

CRC-DabMux is a software multiplexer that generates an ETI stream from audio and data streams. Because of its software based architecture, many typical DAB services can be generated and multiplexed on a single PC platform with live or pre-recorded sources.
A DAB multiplex configuration is composed of one ensemble. An ensemble is the entity that receivers tune to and process. An ensemble contains several services. A service is the listener-selectable output. Each service contains one mandatory service component which is called pri- mary component. An audio primary component define a program service while a data primary component define a data service. Service can con- tain additional components which are called secondary components. Maxi- mum total number of components is 12 for program services and 11 for data services. A service component is a link to one subchannel (of Fast Information Data Channel). A subchannel is the physical space used within the common interleaved frame.
