Doing this week's live stream (the 21st!) in an hour and a half, at 8PM EDT on Monday August 3rd. http://onezeromusic.com:8000/stream.m3u

I uploaded before the deadline, but...something went really wrong with my conversion of my .aiff to .mp3, and the .mp3 is silent. Would it be possible to get an upload code?  Thank you!

Update: Duh. The file's fine; just ran into some weird audio level state on my laptop. No upload code needed!

Still doing one in two hours (8PM EDT, 7PM Central, etc.) http://onezeromusic.com:8000. Server will start shortly before the performance.

Are you still doing this?  I tried to listen in and couldn’t get to the server.

Still doing these Monday at 8PM, (GMT -4).  Server goes on right before and off right after--it's an older icecast that I don't seem to be able to update right now.  Archives are going up at https://snwv.bandcamp.com.

Thank you for stopping by to listen!  I'll post here next week with a convenient link.

So how does Blackhole compare to Soundflower?  First time I've heard of it but it reads well.

I'd never gotten Soundflower to work.  I think it might not be as flexible as Soundflower, from what I'm hearing from friends who liked it...but BlackHole's a currently-developing project, while the free Soundflower project seems to have been abandoned for a while.  (With BH, you can request features by filing a github issue.)

I love the idea! I was planning on livestreaming on the weekend just gone but... didn't. Can I ask what you're using to do it?

Sure! I'm using guitar into a Max/MSP patch.  I'm routing audio output with Existential Audio's free BlackHole, which is a lot easier to work with than Jack. As far as Max is concerned, audio goes to a BlackHole Device. 

Next in line is the acronymic Broadcast Using This Tool, which receives from the BlackHole device, and it streams to an IceCast server I installed on a cloud instance.

How's everyone doing?  For those of us in countries where we're socially isolating (or even sheltering in place...or in quarantine), a lot of people are live streaming from their houses or practice spaces, which is a good way of building connection.

Last Monday (the 16th), I started doing a one-hour audio-only live stream from 8-9 PM EDT (GMT-4). This will be at http://onezeromusic.com:8000. (I start the server right before the performance and shut it down right after.)  Archives go up at https://snwv.bandcamp.com shortly afterward.

Post your live stream URL and date/time in this thread!

Apologies to everybody for not commenting on anything so far this week. I've been swamped.

Seconded.  Whoo, do I have a lot of listening to catch up on.

I uploaded on time, but...didn't listen to the track after I'd rendered it. For some very strange reason known only to Ableton, a bunch of channels are just missing from the final. Could I get a code to re-upload the file?  Thank you!

Sure thing!

Awesome! Thank you!

I typically use Ableton Live/Suite as my multitrack DAW.  Instrumentation depends on the week--some are all-in-the-box with Ableton Suite instruments, while most end up using physical bass and guitar.  Sometimes I'll use Max/MSP instead, stream that to the drive, and then tweak levels in Live.

This year, I've picked up an acoustic guitar (built by Steve Chipman of vintageparlorguitars.com) after years of not having one, so I'll likely be incorporating that in some pieces. (Actually using a mic has been unusual for me in WB, since direct recording solves the problem of bleed from elsewhere in the house and the problem of waking people up if I'm recording late.)

Primary goal is to keep hitting one track per week. Also...more composition from a chord-change point of view, rather than dwell-on-one-tonal-center...but you never know.

A couple new guitars came to me this year (acoustic parlor and a new electric), so I'll be making an effort to use them.    I can relate to the "don't wait for the last minute" goal!

Congratulations, everybody!  Here's to making it through the year!  I'm sorry I didn't get as much of a chance to listen and comment, but I do intend to go back and do more listening and commenting.  Thank you all for listening!
