WHO IS THIS VIDEO FOR?

- Anyone, including DJs, who wants to take advantage of the Instagram Live platform and showcase their knowledge, talent, and event to their followers

- Anyone who is looking for good audio when they stream from their phone

WHAT'S THE PROBLEM? WHY CAN'T I JUST STREAM USING MY PHONE's MICROPHONE?

- As DJs, we care about good, clear, and clean audio.

- Your phone picks up all of the noise around you and sometimes can be distracting when your audience is trying to hear your voice/message

- If you're streaming at a distance, you would have to be speaking loud enough so your phone can pick up your voice.

- If you're speaking loud, you can be obnoxious to the people around you

- If you're talking while music is playing in the background, your phone's microphone will pick up the music, too, and therefore, won't be able to hear your voice clearly

WHAT'S THE SOLUTION?

- Having a wireless microphone which you can control the source of audio coming in regardless of the distance you are from the camera and block out any other sound so your audience can hear your crystal clear

4. Connect to venue's wi-fi. Make sure it's stable!

5. Prepare what you want to say to your audience before going live!

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.
