Hey guys, not sure how many of you have done remote sessions but I need to find a way to remotely collaborate with clients. I'm working on two projects right now with clients that live out of state. I need a way to stream my DAW session and have talkback and/or video interaction at the same time. On both these projects I'm co-writing the songs and doing a lot to build up these songs from simple acoustic guitar/vocals to full productions.
Normally if I was writing a part, programming a beat, adding a layer of synths etc, I'd have instant feedback with the artists being in the room. Just their body language alone would tell me all I need to know. In 30 seconds I'd know whether I was on the right path and if they were feeling the music they way I was. As it stands, its incredibly difficult to spend hours on a song just have the client be like "yeah, that's not the direction I wanted". Especially when that would normally take 5 minutes on time in the actual studio.
So how are you guys handling this? I just stumble across OBS obsproject.com/ and it looks promising. Anyone use it before? Whats the learning curve like? It has to be a platform easy enough for the client to access and use on their side as well.
Thanks in advance.

You can just use Zoom. It will allow you to share your screen if needed and you can pick your audio source. OBS would work if you needed to record the video and can tie into Zoom, but I think that is over kill for what you need.
