Live Streaming & Equipment
Since the first lockdown, the opportunity to play out has been limited and Live streaming opened up new opportunity’s to DJ. Not just to a bigger audience, but an international one!
DJ’s we know personally as well as those we have met virtually have regular shows on National Radio broadcasting to a whole new international audience 24/7 every single week!
With the majority of starter DJ controllers having only a single RCA output (to connect your speakers) and USB Cable (so your Controller can to talk to your DJ Software). Your online audience needs to be able to hear what you are playing. So it’s important to invest in tools that can help you to provide a clear audio feed. Viewers and listener are less likely to tolerate poor sounding audio.
By connecting an Audio Capture Device to your controller’s output, this can split your single audio output into two. One for you to listen to your speakers and one for your online audience to listen via streaming device (laptop or mobile device). So you can enjoy the sound together simultaneously.
- Audio Capture Device [Split the signal from your DJ controller to your livestream]
- RCA Cable (3mtr) [connect the Audo Capture Device to your Controller]
- Mobile Phone + Portable DJ Recording and Live Streaming Device
- Laptop + Streaming Software (Win/Mac)
- Webcam [for viewers to watch your show]
If you would like some help in getting started and connecting everything together, or to explore what is possible, then please get in touch.
External Storage (Music & recordings)
How much space is left on your laptop hard drive? Is all your music in one place or does it need organising (if you have room)?
Downloading songs, recording sets can soon eat all the free space on your hard drive. That an external hard drive can be a great way to consolidate and protect all your music and recordings. Especially if your laptop didn’t have much to begin with… We’ve seen Win 10 laptops with only 60GB! This can severely affect overall performance as is barely enough to keep Wndows Updated let alone DJ Software. Therefore can recommend the following drives to help combat your space issue and give your laptop the best chance in focusing on operating and performing as and when you need it to just work.
