so there are a bunch of sales on Elgato this year (I think more than usual), things I am looking out…
Stream Deck Pedal
For reference, currently own 2 Key Lights, Stream Deck XL, and a Scarlett 8i6. I used to buy things in advance (i.e. plan for a future project) (it would be cool to do XYZ). Reality, anything future-based with no timeline doesn’t actually happen in my life
- I am not live-streaming anything at the moment
- I do lots of reading / researching / writing / productivity
- I heavily upload at any given week 100-200 audio files
Pedal seems nice enough to add to workflow, assuming I can switch between apps, functions, or multiple functions within the same app. (anyone have experience with this?)
Facecam Pro - I have at least 1 Zoom call a week, before construction I had an old Canon SLR mounted to the desk, to be honest, because it was such a beast, it needed multiple wires and adapters to get it work. I took it down during construction and haven’t been motivated to put it back. Typically, when I have a Zoom call, I take it on my iPad for the video portion. Then login again from the Mac so I can be working through apps and documents and presenting things. Could I use my phone and set it up? Yes, but I don’t want to have to do this back and forth. Worth it? Not sure really? Debatable but it’s going on sale LOL.
Stream Deck+ - I have been eyeing this since it was released, I love the idea of knobs and visually seeing the results. But does this replace my Scarlett? I control my computer volume through the Scarlett right now, it has the external speakers plugged in, what will change with the Deck + ??
If anyone has advice in this area and does not use these products for live-streaming, would be a great help please.
