  1. Loved every part of this video…until I checked the Avio 4k price. $650 Wow! Is there any other alternative would you recommend? As far as I know you can’t stream higher than 720p/1080p to Youtube, so any no 4k solution could be useful too.

  2. Did you composite the video onto your monitors at 1:25? If not, any tips on capturing displays without getting any flicker or distortion?

  3. I have always enjoyed your videos. I like that you focus on productive work space instead of aesthetics. You do good work in a few months, I am starting a channel just doing the build up of it.

  4. Hi there! I just stumbled across your channel while looking for a way to light a video. Do you have any tutorials on how to light an overhead camera setup? I’m trying to achieve something like the WithWendy channel. I plan to make sewing/DIY videos and am struggling with the lighting

  5. Nice set up! Are you able to extend your monitor arm further back or does it only go as far as the desktop? I’m asking because I plan on getting a 27 or 34 inch monitor and with my desk (like yours) being only 30 inches deep I’m afraid the monitors will be too close and will need to go back further.

  6. Tell us about how you have the speakers connected. Do you have to run them into the mixer? Can they go from the Mac (audio out – mini plug – l/r channel splitter) to each speaker? It looks like the speakers have their own amps and the speaker input options are either mini or RCA. I’m trying to avoid buying the mixer part of the equation. Thanks!

  7. I’m looking for a easy set up for twitch. Not for gaming but for live streaming model building and crafts. Any thoughts or videos you can recommend?

  8. Incredible setup and you love it!. Make sure to to still give your missus the attention she needs mate. Lol

  9. wow. I didn’t know there was such a cheap shockmount/pop filter combo! Ordering one for my shotgun mic now. Thanks!

  10. Hi Caleb, I really enjoy all of your YouTube content. What I really appreciate is that you don’t need to jump up and down, use exaggerated hand gestures, or speak loudly. You get your point across by being smart and knowledgable. Thanks.

  11. Hey Caleb loved the video, keep up the good work loving what you’ve been doing lately, also would you possibly consider doing a video on the AV.io 4K – Grab and Go USB video capture. But any way keep up the great vids man

  12. Love these kind of behind-the-scenes explain videos on tech. Do you have many patching reliability issues with the hackintosh? It’s always been the point that held me back from going down that route

  13. This is nice. Very close to what I use. The ikea sit/stand desk. Dell 1600p monitor. Neweer arm for ntg4 (pre-owned)

  14. Neat! I love the shotgun mike! I’m currently using a NTG2 myself. Any suggestions on what would you buy if you had to buy it new? Cheers 🙂

  15. Great video man. Do you have any suggestions for a mic? Right now I’m using a Purple Panda Lavalier Lapel Microphone. It’s… ok… for the price. But I’m still not very happy with the sound quality.

  16. A used Blackmagic Design Intensity Pro capturecard is probably the cheapest and best 1080 card you can find. It will accept both an hdmi signal from a cam and analog audio via the breakout cable simultaniously. This make it extremely usefull when streaming.
