    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Have you ever seen or given a sales pitch that went like this:“Take a look at the proposal. If the price is too high, just let me know what will work for you and I’ll see what I can do?” Stop! You have just handed your prospective client a proposal and are already offering a price break. Why did you even bother to put a price on it? Take A Step Back… View this story

    Why is it that people like us, night after night dealing with musicians, and the person at every gig that comes up and says the sound sucks, let me at that thing pal, just because he got a new CD player for Christmas. Why do we still want to mix live music? I swear it’s a sickness! 1. You’re right, it is a sickness. Seek help from qualified medical personnel before it’s too late. Turn yourself in for re-grooving.

    A recent conversation with another engineer got me thinking about experiences that shaped my skills. While in the trenches, certain restrictions and limitations were aggravating and occasionally provoked fits of rage. However, in hindsight, those same events were actually beneficial to developing my skills. Budget Restrictions Many, many…. many years working with churches teaches you one incredibly important skill… Making do with what you have. Part of what established me as a moderately well-respected system installer was my understanding of… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   How many times have you heard this phrase: “If we had a digital sound board, we could save so much time on sound checks and it would sound the same every week.” Or this one: “We have a digital board, so why does my monitor mix change every week?” Or my personal favorite: “Are the sound guys not saving the settings each week, because it’s so different every weekend…” These questions and comments… View this story

    I’ve heard it said many times, in many different situations, that we tend to think we don’t have time to do something right, but then somehow, have time to fix everything that goes wrong as a result. We all know Mr. Murphy and his law about things tending to go wrong if there is any possibility for them to do so. But what can we do about it? For starters, correct that first part - the thing about making sure… View this story

    From the July 1990 issue of the late, great Recording Engineer/Producer (RE/P) magazine, technical editor Mike Joseph interviews a studio owner competing against the big boys and flying under the radar. In an effort to promote balanced journalism, RE/P has endeavored to present both sides of the ongoing issues surrounding commercially directed, so-called home project studios. More of a strong concern in the U.S. major coastal markets, the ethical and legal aspects of low-overhead, for-profit, residentially based audio production facilities… View this story

    Finding the right day rate for freelance audio/production services isn’t easy for anyone at first. It’s a math problem that includes working with several complicated and random variables. There’s the need to ask other freelances in the area about it, doing the research, and worst (scariest?) of all, assigning a number to your worth as a professional. Let’s walk through it together. Here are some things to take into consideration before deciding a bare-minimum day rate: —What is the minimum… View this story

    A concert sound system is, in reality, two completely separate sound systems, joined at the hip by a split snake. Each system requires a skilled engineer, but the skill-sets between the two differ vastly. The thing that baffles me is how ill regarded the position of monitor engineer is among my brethren. It can be easily argued and defended that the monitor engineer works twice as hard as everyone else on the crew, unless he/she is lucky enough to have… View this story
