Up to this point I’ve been using an ATEM mini pro to livestream. The mic/line in ports have been enough for me to manage my sound needs, and there was no local sound (other than headphones from the multi view monitor).
However I’m trying to come up with a small portable rig that enables live sound during an event.
My typical needs are quite small, usually just to have 1-2 mic’s and be able to play music (think a wedding on the beach for instance). Idealy I’d also have an ‘ambient mic’ from one of the camera’s that ONLY goes to the live stream, but I think that might be stretching it.
I’m really trying to avoid having to carry a full audio mixer as it just adds complication for setup (its a 1 person operation here).
I was considering purchasing the Rode Go II to give me some radio mic’s as they are nice and small and quite flexible (I can plug direct into the ATEM, or into a PC or camera direct)
However I can’t work out a simple solution to manage the sound output to Powered EV PA speakers which take a balanced input.
The best option I can come up with are to plug the mic’s into a PC (which is also used for graphics and playing music) and then output audio via HDMI for the livestream to the ATEM and by a USB audio interface as well for the PA speakers. Or to purchase a very small mixer (which is what I’m trying to avoid carrying).
Has anyone worked out a simple small setup like this? What did you use? to manage live sound?
