word on the street is that my live-streaming sound is a bit thin, and could be improved.
Here's the sound,
I'm singing through a Neumann U87, the guitar is through a AKG C3000. The Neumann goes via a JoeMeek VC3. Both mics go through a Yamaha MG10 mixer, using its internal reverb (plate setting) and eq, then out via the mixers USB into OBS running on Windows 10. In OBS there's a gain boost and the internal limiter.
I am recently retired (mostly) and living in a rural community in Nova Scotia. We have/had a very active arts scene that punched far above our demographic, drawing audiences from ~150kms. All indoor venues are small (50~200 seats) but manage a few outdoor festivals each year that attract 500~5,000. Being the solo tech guy, and supplying all of the gear, I try to promote as many shows as I can while walking the technical and financial tightrope.
My retirement plan is to only promote and tech shows that bring me more joy than grief. Good luck with that.
Due to the fact that we cannot perform live at the moment we decided to do a live stream from my studio. We performed our CCR Tribute show and I also recorded the live tracks in the DAW. Guitar was played direct via the Kemper and the Bass was played via the Line 6 Helix.
We setup four cameras (vocals, bass, guitar, drums) and filmed the performance.
I edited the video and put the audio together. It was very successful and went down extremely well.
This is our version of one of the tracks – Suzie Q.
how did I miss this. Poking around the recent aes vids, this popped up!!! Man oh man! This is exactly what I had in mind, for my new setup/services/business model. Looks like someone did the heavy lifting! Wanted to avoid the avid collab, so I can use multiple daws. No samplitude support, or at least it's not listed. Shouldn't be long! RO jam anyone? I'll run protools from the Normandy control room!

The $10-a-month music service is called Apple Music and combines on-demand listening, a 24/7 radio station hosted by live DJs and a forum for artists to give fans behind-the-scenes content from upcoming releases.
Have any of you signed up to have your music distributed on any of the multitude of streaming / downloading sites? I'm not talking about iTunes, Amazon or NON-interactive radio stations like Pandora radio. My opinion is that these interactive sites rob you of sales. If you're a consumer then why pay for an album or song when you can stream or download it for pennies. Seems to me that these sites are for artists who are looking for PROMOTION even if it means essentially giving their music away.
Looks like UA has live streaming today and tomorrow.

Acronym for Enhanced Audio Streaming Interface developed by Emagic, and is designed to standardize communication between audio software and hardware. The standard is cross-platform and is similar to ASIO, developed by Steinberg, but differs from ASIO in that Emagic has made EASI totally public, with no need to sign non-disclosure agreements.
