Music Production Streaming - Twitch VST Plugin - Audio from the DAW
Can Twitch please develop a VST plugin that can stream and mix audio from a DAW.
I'm an expert music production DAW programmer. I want to stream:-
A) My Screen
B) My Webcam
C) My DAW master output (Stereo L&R)
D) A Microphone
When using Digital Audio Work Station software, it takes full control of your audio interface using an ASIO driver. It can make it difficult to stream both a mix from the DAW and a mic.
Could you please develop a Twitch VST that you simply insert into the DAW virtual mixer that allows you to stream the audio from the DAW.
Melda Productions have a free recorder that works well and essentially does the same thing.
But in this plugin's case you can only record the audio going through the plugin.
Perhap Twitch could do the same but use the extracted audio for the broadcast audio stream.
This would make streaming music production much much easier.
The perfect senario
Due to the way audio is processed on the master output it's not always ideal to have the mic going throgh the master.
If you guys to make a mini mixer and a system where by 2 Twitch audio stream VSTs could be used, then the creators could place one the Master Output channel and one the Mic input channel. Then the seperate DAW output and Mic signal be mixed before going out to the broadcast stream you would actually have the perfect system.
The benefit of this is the creator can also place VSTs on the Mic before the Twitch plugin and process the sound from mic, but then that not be effected by the song master DSP processing.
The really perfect scenario is if you created a small ducking system on the Twich mixer before it went to broadcast.
This all done, Music creators who only have a basic laptop, soundcard and mic could produce very polished live broadcasts and recorded assests.
I hope the team get on the case as soon as possible.
