7:05pm – Introduction to OBS Studio (Open Broadcaster Software)

Overview Results: Once you learn the software interface, the key learnings in dealing with the audio issues was a 2 step process. 1. Watching the activity lights to figure out what component (mic/aux) the capture card sound was coming from and 2. Setting that sound to come out to the speakers/headphones (where you want to hear that sound source). Which involved this (what I call) deep sound control panel setting.
