Help with broadcasting Live session over video conf

Post by markstanley » Thu Apr 16, 2020 3:23 pm

First time poster hear, so please bear with me if I am asking in the wrong place.

I am trying to figure out how to run an Ableton Live tutorial session online using either Google Hangouts or Zoom. I have all the tools to do this and routinely use these systems for web conferences. My problem is how to get my Ableton audio to route directly to the video conferencing tool in such a way that the audio from Ableton can be clearly heard by attendees, as well as myself without any nasty feedback loops.

My setup is fairly basic. I have no audio interface - just direct audio output from my computer / desktop speakers. I can use a headset with built in mic if required. I am on a Mac with Live Suite 10.

I am sure this has been figured out a million times. Can someone advise please?

Thanks,

-Mark

In your Live preferences, with Zoom open, select ZoomAudioDevice for your output.

There's more details online if you google it, but that's the key for me...

How do you link it to zoom if you don't have zoom as an output option in preferences. I've done several zoom calls and it's never there. I am using a PC.

I’m on a Mac so there are probably P.C. drivers that I know nothing about, sorry!
