stickam for live shows :)

Postby MagpieIndustries on Sat Jun 07, 2008 4:26 am

Anyone want to do some live shows on stickam.com? If you are interested then add me as a friend, my stickam username is magpieindustries. I broadcast live jams a couple of times a week, please feel free to tune in if you want to!

Here is a recent dubby techno jam session. I am into more acidy techno this month.

come on you guys, there are so many videos up on youtube already that I am really disappointed that none of you want to show off your tunes live.

We're gearing up to do some live studio shows. Had a video camera die, and now just trying to work out how to capture a performance, because our studio is pretty big and we use a bunch of synths and electribes at the same time.

Just the two of us.

Though we set up an extra table in the centre for Jamie's gear, so there's kinda two or three areas where the tweaking occurs. Hard to capture all the fun on video.

meow!

any suggestions for a decent camera to record with? I'd like to record some jams once in a while, including rehearsals for my liveset, but I don't have a camera... cheap and decent?

hmm well the problem with buying a camera is that you gotta find one that has at least ok video quality but is also able to record an incoming audio signal..... that usually makes it rather expensive...

An alternative could be to get one of those hd webcameras (their video quality is amazing) and use some sort of webcam recording software on a computer (which there are tons out there even free ones).

If being cabled to a computer isn't an option I'd definitely find something on amazon, they have dirt cheap prices for stuff like this especially if you buy it from other people new and not amazon itself.

Why not record the audio separately?
In the case of youtube, facebook and stickam at least, the video recorder/player is a flash plugin, which will access the video and audio as separate hardware devices (at least on my mac).. you don't need the audio going through the camera at all. Any crappy webcam will do cos the stickam quality itself isn't any better anyway.

If you are doing non-realtime video production, like HD video for vimeo etc you might want some fancier gear, but for live webcasts you can get away with cheap gear to start with.

I've played out live over stickam.com before but I was just messing around DJing some stuff for about an hour. Tilted my laptop downwards to show my DJ controller (which unfortunately meant I had no idea what I was doing within virtual DJ so had to tip it back up now and then to cue up tracks) audio was separate from my controller outputs (has internal audio) into my laptop. had about 100 views in an hour and a few comments of positive feedback.. not too bad. This was while I was over in Austria and had free WIFI in my hotel with great bandwidth... unfortunately internet connections here in South Africa are slow and very expensive for anything good enough to stream live video... definitely thinking of doing it again but this time with my Electribes :mrgreen:
