OBS - Open Broadcasting Studio

OBS - Open Broadcasting Studio

https://obsproject.com/

This software literally inspired me to stream daily within minutes of using it. As simple as it is it represents 15 years of dabbling in music, multimedia and activism . Compared to our game which is almost identical in function/nature the simplicty of the medium both the technicalies of streaming more than average sound quality and HD in visiuals (if that rocks your boat- I use it coz I can) and the pervasiveness of video in social media.

For me the unit of audio is not a tune or an album, it's a stream. I have nearly 500 Ableton backing trax that constantly change as i absorb new ideas sounds etc. But everything is dynamic, no one version of a tune stands out as the original mix. I can take snapshots for mixcloud maybe, but I am drawn to the disposable pulp format of the dailies.

WELCOME TO NON VINTAGE PULP:

  • I use vlc to display time sync generative graphics as a background, I'm fond of this hack I came up with myself. I use  capture-device audio = input in, video=none. I use project-m plugin to display the old winamp milkdrop algorhthms.
  • The obs is installed on an older laptop [clint] which has the screen pointing towards the ableton push. : "The push cam."
  • Two external usb webcams on [clint] show myself and left at the kit.
  • [clint] handles the main slideshow that displays activist and local news related tweets.
  • [clint] can handle two maybe three additional slideshows of various digital art before feeling strained.
  • I got confused using [clint] to control an additional vlc player running some looped AVIs
  • Obs is installed on the laptop[junior] that vcvrack is installed on and sends the vcvrack stream over the wifi to [clint] NDIS plugin which uses ethernet to broadcast the finished stream to Youtube or Twitch or Twitter (periscope) or any other service.
  • Obs is installed on an old laptop to display more image slideshows or AVIs via NDIS plugin, but hasn't been tested yet.
