Thanks for the detailed report. Did I miss it? What webcasting platform did you use? (YouTube Live, Facebook, Zoom, or ...)
It was Facebook Live ... we only left it up for a day before "expiring" it. We thought we'd leave them wanting more (or keep them from having to endure it any longer! )
I'm also playing with vMix and StreamLabs OBS software to see if either of those can enhance the production value, but I don't want to get too many layers to manage during a performance.

Hey folks, I just got this in my inbox and thought I'd share. In more than a few of these Bose discussions and questions, I see many of us are using an iRig or iRig2 for streaming live to Facebook / YouTube using phones and tablets. The only real limitation is it's mono only, which works with a Bose T mixer or an analog mixer with everything panned to one side (or centered works as well). However, stereo does sound nice, so I wanted to pass on that IK Multimedia now has an iRig "Stream". It's sort of like the iRig DUO, which is basically a hopped up stereo iRig2, but the Stream is half the cost ($99).
The Stream is designed specifically for streaming online with audio from your mixer instead of the phone/tablet mic, so sounds like right up our ally. I might even get one to try out with my band, as since we all live together and can, we've been FB Live'ing a song a night from our house during the quarantine (yay for family bands!). I hadn't done the iRig2 since I wanted to keep the stereo feel, and our phones pick up our PA in the room pretty good, but I'm really tempted to get one of these and try it out.
Hope this helps,

Hi. I’m a Bose L1 S1 owner with the T1 mixer. We’ve been using a Blue Yeti USB mike connected to an IPhone 7 via an Apple camera adapter (doggle) for audio to stream our Saturday worship to Livestream and Facebook Live. The Blue Yeti is a HUGE improvement over the IPhone mike. We stream from a 300 seat carpeted sanctuary. After weeks of experimentation, I’ve dialed in a good Blue Yeti mike location-on a music stand about 5 feet in front of the Bose L1 tower. This reduces the amount of room ambient reverb and providers a strong, clear signal. The problem I have now is periodically overdriving (distorting) the Facebook Live audio. I dial it in perfectly on Livestreram (sounds great) but then it distorts in loud portions on Facebook Live. Not sure if there are variable audio settings on Facebook Live. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.
