The Ring Light has TRANSFORMED my setup as it makes me look 100x cuter. Just kidding, but it has meant I could lose two tripods that sat at the back of my desk (one for Ring Light, one for camera) and now I have one desk mount which attaches both the Ring Light and the camera, I can change the warmth and brightness (useful if natural lighting changes during a stream) at the press of a button too. 10/10 would Ring Light again.
I have SO many scenes, animations, pictures and SFX on my stream so I'm constantly pressing buttons. I would be useless without the Stream Deck now! My favourite buttons are my "party" buttons which cycle through a series of colourful lights at times when the stream deserves some added hype, this is usually triggered by gift subs or similar! I also have a button called "what's in Knight's hand", you'll have to come and watch me to see what that one does.. Be prepared.
What is your favourite thing about being a content creator?
Prior to Twitch I was a bit of an outsider, always feeling like the "weird one" on the outskirts of friendships. Creating content has meant I've created a space for people like me and I am so lucky to have a community of like minded individuals who all feel like they fit in, as do I. Community above all else. I had no idea that when I started making content I'd end up with a family like this, but it's a total blessing.
Do you have a content creation goal you are aiming for?
Other than World domination, I'm just over the moon that I've been able to be a full time streamer for 5 years now which feels like a mega milestone. In that time so much has changed but my love for streaming has not and if I can continue to stream to an audience that's eager to watch, then I'm content! So here's to more streams, more games and more unforgettable moments!
What do you like most about Elgato?
Elgato, to me, is the absolute bee's knees when it comes to stream tech. You know if it's got the Elgato stamp on it, it's a product that fills a gap in the market and does so with absolute perfection. Every product I own improves the quality of my streams, or decreases my setup time, allowing me to grow and use time more efficiently.
