    “Audio System Engineer”—has a nice ring to it, eh? Very official sounding. Not so very long ago there was a controversy about this title.

The Audio Engineering Society (AES) has accepted me as member since 1978, and if it works for them, it works for… View this post

    Of all the tools at the disposal of the sound engineers, our ears are probably the most important yet also the most overlooked. Much like any other tool it helps to fully understand how they work to get the most out of them and ensure a productive working life – because if they break, that’s it, we can’t just go out and buy a new pair. Ears are transducers, devices that receive signals in one form of energy and convert… View this post

    In the early 1990s I was serving as a maintenance tech in a large recording studio complex when I got a call from the sound company I’d worked for in the previous decade. Was I available to mix and tech front of house for the upcoming Canada Day (July 1st in Canada, like July 4th in the U.S.) gig at the provincial legislature? I hadn’t done live sound in a while, but it was a daytime gig, on a paid… View this post

    Editor’s note: This goes back to 2013, but the advice is critical to this industry and worthy of repeating. The term “bedside manner” is usually associated with doctors, but I think it’s equally appropriate for any situation where customers are being served in perhaps a technical way and communication between parties is essential. Psychology matters, and should be considered in the presentation, the choice of words, and certainly the attitude of the vendor or service provider. Case in point: when… View this post
