Making a Video
- Check audio levels
- Turn on LED lights and turn off overhead light in the front room. Turn off the overhead light in the back room.
- Close the curtains or the video won’t be lit correctly.
- Start Pro Tools, load or create the song being worked on, record arm any tracks that provide effects for the talent to hear.
- Speakers should be off.
- 3 headphones are set up. Ensure levels are good.
- Turn on the Sony A7 Mark iii camera. It is normally attached to the video splitter and then the Cam Link 4K. Make sure Bear’s 3rd monitor is on; you probably want to switch the input to HDMI, so the live camera feed is displayed instead of Bear’s Windows desktop.
- Start OBS Studio, so the output of Pro Tools can be mixed with the live Sony camera.
- Verify OBS Studio output directory is set to one of the following:
E:\media\YouTube Meta Music Channel
- Start OBS Studio recording and / or camera recording and / or Pro Tools recording.

- I have one Radial Pro direct box (passive). I am unsure whether to plug the acoustic guitars into the direct box, or directly into the RME UFX or the Behringer ADA8200.
- DPA spec and order cables.
- Mark mic placements on floor using tape for the above recording scenarios
- I have a roll of gaff tape, but after 6 months it leaves a gooey mess. What other tape could we use for a semi-permanent placement?
- We only need a few feet of tape for this purpose.
- 3-4 different colors would be helpful; this would allow a color-coded mic placements for each recording scenario that requires at least one microphone.
