Whilst public spaces have been closed, events have been cancelled and social distancing has been enforced, many DJs and producers are taking to streaming to continue providing their fans with the music they love. DJ Ravine of Point Blank has provided an in-depth tutorial on setting up a successful stream to continue connecting to your listeners from the comfort of their homes.
Getting your Livestream set up isn’t too difficult. DJ Ravine showcases the best free software you’ll need to get started as well as sharing tips and tricks on how to produce the highest quality stream possible and how to build and maintain your virtual fanbase.
During the video, DJ Ravine demonstrates exactly how to set up your live stream using OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) and lists the essential pieces of kit you’ll need to get started: a webcam, an audio interface, RCA to Jack cables and a DJ Controller. It’s also important to check your internet speed to ensure your stream runs with minimal latency. He shows you how to generate the stream keys for your desired platform, how to use your stream key with OBS and how to stream to multiple platforms simultaneously using Restream.
