What Makes a Good Sound Tech?

A sound tech’s essential obligation is to help the sound architect and he has just one significant duty, which is to be mindful. Burden in and load out are second simply to that essential duty.

Be Attentive

There are numerous aspects to being mindful. Above all else a decent stable tech will take care of the necessities of the architect. Being mindful methods focusing. The specialist ought to have no trouble at all speaking with his tech. A portion of the normal methods for correspondence that are utilized during shows are:

Two-way radios or shut circuit comm. frameworks


Instant messages

Hand signals

A gesture of the head

A tech must take cues from his architect and should continually look at the designer to check whether he needs something. The designer of any show has a ton at the forefront of his thoughts. There is a great deal he must be answerable for to accomplish genuinely proficient outcomes. The architect must zero in on a few things immediately: the craftsmen, the sound, and the crowd. One thing he ought not need to zero in on is standing out enough to be noticed. Whenever the designer experiences issues speaking with his tech, the tech is neglecting to take care of his responsibility. It is the obligation of the tech to be mindful. The architect ought to never need to leave his seat after the craftsmen show up. The sound tech must be mindful to the requirements of the craftsmen as well. At the point when the specialists are setting up, it is the sound tech’s obligation to give the accompanying:

Hand every craftsman their link and let them know, “This is for you,” or “You plug in here” for instance.

We are not to contact the specialists’ hardware and they are not to contact our own (sensibly speaking obviously.) We need to contact the drums to mic them, yet we amiably inquire as to whether that is alright and we try to inquire as to whether any of our mics are obstructing the drummer. Artists, clearly, will think that its important to contact our amplifiers and that is alright as well. However, it is the sound tech’s responsibility to make all essential acclimations to mouthpiece stands to get the ideal situation for each craftsman. No craftsman ought to actually need to change a mic stand. At whatever point that happens the sound tech isn’t taking care of his responsibility. The craftsman should just need to zero in on his instrument and his presentation. Playing music is an enthusiastic encounter and if a craftsman becomes irritated in light of the fact that he needs to change his mic stand it will influence his feelings adversely and that will corrupt his presentation.

The sound tech must change the screens to suit the specialists’ inclinations. Now and again they need them closer, or farther away, or turned along these lines or that. It is basic to keep the screens out of the input zone, for example not pointing at amplifiers that may incite criticism.

At whatever point the specialist leaves his seat to take care of those obligations, the sound tech is neglecting to take care of his responsibility. The designer can’t zero in on setting up the board, and the screen blend, and the specialists, and the crowd on the off chance that he needs to do the tech’s occupation as well. The main occupation of the sound tech is to be mindful. Being mindful methods more than taking care of the necessities of the specialist and the craftsmen. Being mindful methods going to the show and focusing consistently. Tune in for issues that may emerge and alarm the specialist of any worries.

Take a gander at the framework. In the event that there is a speaker that is off pivot, the sound tech should see something to that effect immediately and right it decisively. On the off chance that a craftsman is attempting to convey something, the sound tech should be focusing on that as well. It is the specialist’s obligation to comprehend those correspondences that come from the craftsmen during a show, in any case, more significantly, it is the sound tech’s responsibility to be mindful to the necessities of the designer and the craftsman. That may mean helping the architect sort out what the craftsman is attempting to impart. Besides, if a receiver stand slips, or gets moved out of position or pushed over, the sound tech must address that without a moment’s delay.
