How to Use SoundSwitch? (Part 1)

In this video, I answer some questions about SoundSwitch and go a bit in-depth with the software's features. I'm not a lighting expert, and that's why I use SoundSwitch to help me with my lighting game. Hope this video is helpful for all the people who are considering getting SoundSwitch or for those people who are already using it. I believe that we need to up our performance when we DJ and stand out. Learning something new isn't easy, but once you realize the benefit from it, it'll be worth it. This is my take on SoundSwitch. Enjoy!

Let's help each other out.

If you have any questions or thoughts, leave in the comments section below!

I'll make a Part 2 depending on the kind of responses I get.
