Useful Software

Open Broadcaster Software:
Great free software for streaming, a lot better than several alternatives. Has many features including multiple scenes and game capture. Also works really well for recording instead of streaming.

DaVinci Resolve:
Switched to this from Adobe Premiere, as it seems to work more reliably and is easier to edit in, not to mention it’s free. Haven’t messed with it too much, but it seems really powerful.

JACK:
An audio subsystem with limitless audio routing capabilities.

Ardour:
Great DAW for Linux, has lots of downloadable plugins and supports JACK.

Audacity:
Great for recording audio in post and anything else audio-related. Also good for editing audio, it has several useful effects, including noise removal and reverb.

ocenaudio:
A neat program for recording quick audio clips, with support for JACK.

Barrier:
A fork of Synergy which is completely free and open source. Allows sharing mouse and keyboard with multiple machines.

Adobe Photoshop:
I use this to make video thumbnails, graphics, and various other images. It can do quite a lot and I’ve barely scratched the surface of it.
