Better sound for your concert videos



Download On The App Store

Have you ever tried recording live concerts using your smartphone?

Great concert moments have made a big impact on many people’s lives and we all love to relive and share these personal memories with our friends and families.

But capturing the moment with our mobile phone most often ends up with poor sound quality, making it hard even to recognize the song.

Livetake is the app that creates a strong Fan-Artist relationship, making it possible for the fanbase to create and share personal memories in high quality. How? By matching the video with quality sound recorded from the mixing desk.

By encouraging concertgoers to share quality videos with the band and others, the artist gets valuable promotion and can pick the best moments from all the fan recordings.

How can the band take advantage?

By encouraging fans to record and share their personal concert memories with friends and others will drastically improve their engagement.

  • Prior to the concert, the band can interact with their fans by sending updates from for example the tour bus or the sound check.
  • When the concert ends, the fans will share their favourite moments on social media, reaching out to thousands of new potential fans and creating new revenue streams for the copyright holders and live performers.
  • The band will get access to all shared recordings and with simple Livetake tools, it is easy to compose new videos from the shared material.

Example: Revenue stream

  • 1000 concertgoers each share 1 video.
  • The video is seen by 200 in their network, resulting in a total of 200,000 views.
  • The band now edits and composes a video from the shared highlights and re-posts this video on various social media platforms like on YouTube channels, Facebook fan sites and the venue/festival platform.
  • All these platforms together results in another 200,000 views.
  • The total number of streams for these shares are 400,000 views
  • During a tour with 100 concerts, a total of 40,000,000 views will be accumulated.
