Was My 2 Years Doing Broadcast Video Worth It? (10 Lessons)

I branched out from Ableton and live audio for two whole years to run a video broadcast. What I learned surprised me.

I never wanted to be a broadcast video guy, and honestly, I don’t know if I’ll do it again. But for 2 years, that was my job. And it was 100% worth it.

It made me a better Ableton trainer and playback tech, and it taught me some basic principles that I apply every day in what I do now.
