5 Professional Musician Accessories you want for your Next Live Show!

As a professional musician starting out in the industry, you must dedicate a lot to your live show. Live performances can make or break an artist, helping them get attention from some of the industry’s biggest players and the audience before them. Then again, if you do it wrong, a poorly planned out live performance can lose your next gig when you don’t deliver. These are the top 5 professional musician accessories to take with you for your next live show.

 

Flexible light

 

Whether you have a set list taped down in front of you or have something else you want to be able to read, a flexible light is used by everyone from soundmen to acoustic guitar players to provide sight in an otherwise dark room.

 

Adjustable backdrop

 

A height adjustable live show backdrop is a perfect addition to a live show, giving you the opportunity to hang lights, photos, images or something else. Simple in installation and setup, this can add a whole new dynamic to your live show and give your audience a sense of professionalism.

 

¼-inch guitar pedal patch cables

 

You can never have too many guitar pedal patch cables if you’re playing with a lot of guitar pedals. When one goes out, in the moment, it might be difficult to see where the problem is. That’s why you need some extras to plug in and get you going when you’re out on a gig.

 

Guitar tuning pedal

 

No one wants to play a live show with their instrument gently out of tune. That said, if you’ve ever done a live performance without a guitar tuning pedal, surely you’ve been caught before having to tune by ear. When you break a string or when you suspect you may be going slightly out of tune, a heavy-duty chromatic pedal tuner puts you back on the right track with your performance.

 

Tripod folding guitar stand

 

A folding guitar stand is easy to pack and is ideal to keep your acoustic, electric, or classical guitars on when it’s not in your hands. When you don’t have a folding guitar stand, you’re left attempting to prop up your instrument against the wall or having to put it in its case. This sort of behaviour can lead to out-of-tune instruments and permanent damage. Do your gig right, with a tripod folding guitar stand.

 

Shop all these professional musician accessories and more at Canada’s own PrimeCables. Prepare yourself for the best possible live performance you can give yourself and your audience!

How to Connect a Mac to a TV using HDMI for Full Audio and Video Support

Though years ago, connecting a computer to a TV came with challenges requiring a mix of cables, adapters, switches, and all sorts of gizmos and gadgets, things have changed. Today, connecting your Mac computer to a TV through HDMI is easy.

There are plenty of reasons why Canadian households have chosen to connect their Mac to their flat-screen, including to share business presentations, to game, and for movie streaming. From start to finish, we’re here to help share how to do it in the most efficient way. Using HDMI is the best recommendation for maximizing video and audio quality.

 

As shared, using an HDMI cable will be the easiest way to make this connection. Whether you’re using a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, or other Apple computer, HDMI is cheap, keeps resource usage low, maintains a high video quality with no risk of latency, and provides a much more versatile signal. All you’ll need beyond your computer and flat-screen is to an HDMI cable and the DisplayPort to HDMI adapter required to make the HDMI connection possible. Keep in mind the latest MacBook models already have an HDMI port so you may not even need an adapter.

 

Let’s say your MacBook does not have an HDMI output. Then, you must find your Thunderbolt or DisplayPort output and connect your adapter to it. The location of this may vary depending on the model of MacBook so give your computer a quick search. After connecting the HDMI adapter to the video output, connect the HDMI cable to the adapter and then, turn on the computer. From there, jump on the flat-screen and switch the video input source to its intended HDMI destination. The great thing about Macs are that they should instantly pick up on the connection to an HDTV. Instantly, you should see what’s on your desktop on your screen.

 

As great as this is, there are a few additional steps to take to optimize your MacBook to TV performance. If you’re seeking to watch a movie or play games from your MacBook, you may want to use the Display Mirroring feature. Go into “System Preferences”, into “Displays” and then “Arrangements”, and then, “Mirror Displays”. Set up the TV display as your MacBook’s primary display. You’ll also want to change the sound output from the Mac to the TV via HDMI, possible going through “System Preferences”, choosing “Sound”, and then “Output”.

 

Connecting your MacBook is pretty easy though occasionally you may run into some issues. Be sure to follow these steps and hopefully you won’t run into any surprises. If you do experience a problem not covered in this guide, search it out online. The Internet’s filled with forums of people who’ve run into all sorts of technical issues with computers, home theater accessories, and product. We can almost guarantee the answer’s out there. All the best with hooking up your computer to TV using HDMI!
