LIGHTING

I'm currently utilising two Elgato Key Lights which are connected via wifi to my Elgato Stream Deck

AUDIO

My microphone is a Shure SM7B which is going through an ART TUBE MP/C for a bit of compression before it ends up at the Helicon GOXLR

VISUALS

My camera is the Lumix G7 which is connected to the computer via an

Elgato Cam Link

My monitors are two ASUS MG279Q

INPUTS

My keyboard is the

Fnatic Streak and my mouse is a Razer Deathadder Elite

My current virtual reality headset is a Valve Index

When I doodle, I draw on a Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 

SOFTWARE.

I use a whole array of software, some are necessities, some are quality of life.

 Let's break them up in to categories:

Editing Softwares

I capture desktop gameplay using OBS Studio and console gameplay with Elgato 4k Capture Utility.

In the editing phase I solely use Adobe Premiere Pro and occasionally dabble in Adobe After Effects too.

For editing thumbnails / pictures, you've probably already guessed it, Adobe Photoshop is what I use.

Most of my audio recordings are done using Audacity but cleaning up background noise or general editing is done in Adobe Audition

Quality Of Life

For resizing windowed games to a particular size, I use a handy tool called Sizer

(for example, if you want Minecraft to be exactly 1080p then make a preset for 1936x1119px, this will account for the Windows 10 program header/border)

I've recently started using Opera GX as my web browser because it has additional options to limit how much power it's using (sorry Google, you're just a bit greedy!)

For my livestreams to prevent the audio peaking and going distorted, I've implemented Loudmax which is a simple VST Plugin that works with OBS
