So @danmanisa mentioned he had a bunch of questions for me about streaming live songwriting/music production (since I’m doing said thing), and I figured, rather than waiting for him to start the conversation, I’d start it.
I must mention that I haven’t been doing it very long and I’m still learning (thus the reason for posting in Beginners), but I have some idea of the technical issues if anyone has questions about that.
I can’t tell you how to make money (though I can tell you how others seem to make money) or how to be successful (I’m still working that out).
The first thing I can tell you is that almost no one watches those streams on twitch. Even people with thousands of followers and thousands of subscribers who get 2-300 people for their live performance streams only get a tenth of that for their production streams.
Also, you can do it on a single computer, but it’s better if you have separate computers for audio and for streaming the video. I do it on a single computer, but the streaming software and the webcam eat probably 15% of my cpu, which puts limits on what I can do in the DAW. I can’t wait to get another computer.
