About Beat Sheet

When you go live, you’re trying to showcase your expertise and talk to guests while simultaneously producing a live broadcast, all without a production team.

Beat Sheet takes one thing off your plate and helps you plan better broadcasts with a super-simple interface.

Set up your Ecamm Live scenes with different keyboard shortcuts and Beat Sheet can automatically advance your show, segment-by-segment, showing the correct scene each time.

No longer do you have to remember which scene you need for which segment, which keyboard shortcut that was, or what you wanted to talk about next.

You won’t accidentally trigger the title sequence when you’re halfway through an episode like I sometimes do!

You’ll be motivated to plan your shows better and organise a library of different show formats.

  • Create a new project

  • Use the + button to add a section

  • Describe what happens in that section

  • Add additional sections to continue

  • Drag and drop to rearrange the sequence

  • Use the select box to send a keyboard shortcut (⌘+1 to ⌘+9) when entering the section

  • When you’re ready to go live click the play button.

  • The current section will be highlighted

  • Click next (or press ⌘→) to advance to the next section

  • Enjoy yourself!
