The purpose of the streaming console is to make footage recorded with Vinyl Reality more interesting and engaging for an audience to watch, by enabling users to select different camera perspectives to display on the desktop mirror, while recording or streaming a set.
The streaming console is currently available in the Recording Studio and Underground Club environments. The Recording Studio environment was specifically designed to be as optimized as possible and should allow users to record their sessions without any performance issues. Both environments includes a screen which displays the feed from the external cameras when they’re activated.
The streaming console also allows users to record and save their DJ sets to a high-quality audio wave file. The recorded wave files will be stored inside the “Vinyl Reality” subfolder in the user’s default music folder (ex: …/Users/username/My Music/Vinyl Reality).
The recorded wave files use 32-bit float samples, and can be opened in software like Audacity for further processing or converting it to other file formats.
Please note that the record button on the streaming console only records audio and NOT video. To record or stream video footage, it’s recommend to use an external tool like OBS Studio, which is free and easy to setup.
When the Streaming Console has auto-switching enabled, it will automatically toggle between the selected camera perspectives in sync with the audio. To active auto-switching, two or more cameras selection pads need to be selected at the same time.
Selecting multiple cameras is achieved by pressing and holding down the camera selection pads:
When multiple camera selection pads are selected, all of the selected pads are lit up in purple, and the active one in blue.
To limit how fast the streaming console can switch between the selected camera perspectives, a minimum interval can be set using the slider in the user settings application panel.
