Live streaming keyboard and vocal on Facebook

Postby mikefloutier » Sat Mar 28, 2020 6:05 pm


In response to the current self-isolating, my wife and I plan to stream some spontaneous keyboard plus occasional chat to one of our Facebook groups.

We've been doing this sort of thing in a small way already as part of Zoom meetings using iDevices (using internal mic).

Now we'd like to live-stream to a Facebook group, as I said, and I'm wondering what's the best way to go about this in order to get the best sound quality out there.

I have a late 2012 Mac mini linked to a Tascam US-1800 audio interface and might want to use Reaper to provide virtual instruments for my keys but not essential.

I would be transmitting the stream via my home hub, upload speed 0.78 mbps, download 6 mbps, ping 40ms.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,
