What You Need To Run Rehearsal Live Share

Rehearsal Live Share

Our resources have always been designed to work well with a variety of equipment, and this remains true to run Rehearsal Live Share. The core items are a computer, headphones, and a mic (either an external mic or your computer’s internal mic). For computers, we’ve divided our recommendations into Macs and PCs and then further subdivided them by participant type, as those running the rehearsal will need a more powerful machine than additional participants.

Apple Computers

Director's Computer

Due to the fact that RLS is more computationally intensive for the director’s machine, we recommend that anyone assuming that role should utilize a computer with 4 cores or more.

Modern iMacs and MacBook Pros have built in cameras, as well as microphones, making them a great out-of-the-box solution to get going with RLS. The only equipment necessary to be added is a pair of headphones.

Participant's Computer

The modern iMac and MacBook Pro linked above are fantastic options for RLS users in performer role as well. The new MacBook Pros come with upgraded three-mic “studio” array, which is better microphone quality than most stock computer microphones.

Since the performer role in RLS is not as computationally intensive as the director role, utilizing a computer with fewer than 4 cores such is possible. We recommend Apple’s MacBook Air.

Modern Macbook Airs also have built in cameras, as well as microphones, making them a great out-of-the-box solution to get going with RLS for cast members. The only equipment necessary to be added is a pair of headphones.
