“At least no dogs joining in today! been a busy day so just setup something simple. Been listening to lots of Andrew Chalk over the last few days because he’s started uploading his stuff to bandcamp (check it out!) and also Bulbils – both are likely an influence.”

Learn how to live stream your music with these two easy, quick videos, gear tips

Okay, so everyone is suddenly live streaming. But the thought of setting this up hurts your brain. Fortunately, two of our friends have put together concise videos to get you started.

Live streaming music performances hardly started with this pandemic era – and to be fair, a lot of us have been putting off working out how to do it anyway. So let’s do it properly. Live streaming can be a good way to connect with people and to try out material. Its main enemy is often technical trouble. Michael and Tom to our rescue!

Tom Cosm has a desktop guide that takes just two minutes – he captures both from his screen and a webcam, which could also work for tutorials, live coding, and more creative ideas.

Tools:

OBS https://obsproject.com

Streaming platform (Twitch, Facebook Live, etc.)

Desktop platforms (mobile and custom options coming soon)

Michael Forrest has a live streaming how-to – from August 2019, and a reminder that this can be a good idea that you genuinely enjoy rather than an endtimes substitute for live performance as civilization collapses and you abandon hope of ever playing for a crowd of more than two people or within 2 meters of a human. (I mean – let’s definitely not think about it that way.)

And there is a ton of useful gear here. From his list (and his affiliate links). Crucially, since the OBS part is pretty straightforward, having a good stand and lighting is essential – and based on my cursory research, you can ship from a lot of electronics providers at the moment even given lockdowns (and not only Amazon, in case you want to protest that company).

Best of all, he’s got a terrifically useful scene switcher script:

Lots of little relevant tips in this video, as well.

And some more gear…

A few more bits of kit I’ve had an eye on. IK Multimedia have started daily livestreams:

https://www.ikmultimedia.com/news/?item_id=9290

But it’s also worth noting they have some rather useful looking kit for podcasting and streaming, particularly solving this on mobile:

iRig Stream is a useful interface, and

iRic Mic Video bundle (and the associated grip and mics in their Creator Series)

…all look useful.

Roland have their GO:LIVECAST which I’ve mentioned, though it seems to lack stereo line input (still trying to get hold of one of these). See also their GO:MIXER.

Sometimes it’s the stuff not specifically directed at streaming that looks most useful for audiovisual use cases. In particular, one friend clued me into the ZOOM U-24 – 2-in, 4-out interface, with preamps:

https://www.zoom.co.jp/products/production-recording/audio-interfaces/u-24-handy-audio-interface

I’m still not entirely seeing the perfect solution I’d imagine here, so I’m keen to hear what you’re thinking.

And this being CDM, absolutely taking your ideas – and intend to discuss some different approaches to online performance, not only the traditional video Web stream. Watch this space.

Beepstreet Drambo – Ein multitimbraler Modularsynthesizer mit Sequencer

Beepstreet Drambo SynthBeepstreet Drambo Synth

Eigentlich ist es eine Modulare Klangerzeugung mit mehreren Slot mit TR-artigem Stepsequencer und somit eine Groovebox für iOS.

Drambo ist aufwendig, denn es kann mehrere verschiedene komplette modulare Patches verwalten, die aus aktuell 124 Modulen zusammengestellt werden können. Jeder dieser Sound oder Patches hat einen eigenen Step-Sequencer, der Roll/Ratchet und Probability beherrscht und im typischen TR-Stil ausgeführt ist für jedes Instrument. Bereits als Klangerzeuger wäre Drambo sehr aufwendig, aber insgesamt ist es dann ein Sequencer-System oder kurz: eine Groovebox.

Neben klassischen Oszillatoren und diversen Hüllkurven und LFOs bietet Drambo auch Sample-Module an, die eingeladene Audiofiles abspielen kann. außerdem sind auch Granular-Oszillatoren vorgesehen in einer späteren Version. Die Module werden nicht in ein großes endloses Rack gestellt, sondern nebeneinander. Sie werden durch eine Art Klappmenüsystem erreichbar und verbindbar und sind daher aufgeräumt und bieten optisch zunächst „nur“ ihre Parameter an. Die Module kann man auf dem iPad schön seitlich weiter schieben, bis man das passende Modul erreicht hat.

Außerdem gibt es Parameter-Locks, also eine Automation der Parameter pro Step. Es gibt Effekte und mehrere Übersichten über die Synths und Patches zum performen sowie eine SequencerÜbersicht.

Weitere Information

Natürlich gibt es die App im Apple Appstore und kostet 21,99€. Beepstreet hat aber auch eine Website.
