The Weekly Wrap Up June 9 2017
Here's a video on Mixing where I show you the plugins I use on different tracks in the mix like the master fader, along with individual tracks as well as groups or busses.
Also, streaming live is not that hard or expensive.
Here's a quick one where I'm dabbling w/ Maschine Jam.
What you need"
Rode SC4 available on Amazon and lots of places. This converts a stereo input into a mic input for your smart phone, I'm using an iPhone.
Then you need something like this to go from your mixer to the Rode connector.
**this is important**
You're phone takes a mic level input, your mixer or soundcard sends line level signal which is MUCH hotter than a mic level signal.
So you'll need to send a very low level signal into your phone or you will get distortion.
What does this mean?
On a DJ mixer you must use an output with a knob that controls the signal going out. For example I'm using the booth out on my DJ mixer and I have the output set to 9 o clock. This is very low.
If you don't have control over your output then you will need this attenuator by Fentronix.
In the clip on facebook above, it doesn't sound super great because I'm just jamming and when I further arrange and mix this tune I'll be making sure it sounds good in mono. Using this method which is quite easy and cheap you'll be broadcasting in mono.
This is fine for streaming DJ sets where the music is already mix, mastered and sounding good in mono.
Enjoy and see you next time.
