My session for Ruby Tuesday Sessions this week, featuring three unrecorded songs, Only The Sea (solo version), Beggar of Love and You Just Want the Thrill.
Plus the most gormless-looking video thumbnail I’ve ever been part of.
How I’ve been doing this, in case you’re interested.
The last couple of times I’ve balanced an iPad on a printer on my desk, and hooked up a Zoom H3 battery-operated mic to it using a line-out to lightning adapter. This setup seems to work slightly better than others I’ve tried:
- the same with an iPhone – Facebook Live just would not let me do it in landscape. It kept telling me, ORDERING me to rotate it. Portrait seems a bit full on and intense somehow.
- using a really decent mic going through my audio interface, and a webcam and OBS streaming software. Great picture and sound but it always seemed to drop the connection before 2 minutes had elapsed. Consensus seems to be you need better bandwidth than I have here.
By the time I get it right the whole pandemic will be over and done with.
