The new console is designed specifically for streamers and gamers that are seeking an affordable and simple solution to manage and control their live streams. Since the Live S is a customizable console with touch screen buttons, analog buttons, and tactile dials, users can have full control over how their live stream, chat, and even manage external sources like lighting and audio controls.
“Loupedeck’s goal has always been to streamline creative processes for our users, and with our continuously growing user base of live streamers and gamers, we wanted to provide a solution specialized to them,” says Mikko Kesti, CEO and founder of Loupedeck. “By taking inspiration from the Loupedeck Live, we were able to craft an affordable, intuitive, and efficient tool with everything streamers need so they never have to sacrifice creativity for optimization.”
The new Live S Console has a three-by-five square grid of customizable buttons that can be expanded to up to 14 pages and are activated by a swipe. The dials allow users to have precise fine-tune adjustment control over the assigned functions, as well as make instant changes with the dials “push” function. The console is compatible with both Windows (PC) and MacOS (Apple) devices, and runs on the same software as the Loupedeck Live and Loupedeck CT.
“Anyone who streams knows the game sound can drown out the music volume, the lighting is often too dark and the chat alerts too intrusive, which all need to be remedied at once,” says Thomas Kilian, Product Owner Streaming at Loupedeck, and long-time e-sports caster (who is well known in the scene as Khaldor). “An annoyed user will click through different sources and make awkward adjustments with the mouse, but with the all-encompassing features of the Loupedeck Live S, all of this can be conveniently and quickly fixed with a single hand.”
Additionally, the company’s Marketplace allows users to download and share custom profiles, designs, and plugins for third-party developers, partners, and influencers with more than 70 downloadable items currently available.
The Loupedeck Live S is available to back on Indiegogo with ‘early bird’ discounts starting at about $128 and combo packages ranging up to about $482 for four Loupdeck Live S consoles. At the time of publication, the Live S had already achieved its initial $53,000 funding goal with 25 days left. The company expects shipping to begin in early October 2022.
