Good day family
I often tell if someone is good in their trade by how they do the little things.
e.g a good wife is seen by how they conduct themselves and respect in-laws or in basic communication etc…
In sound companies before they can hire an audio engineer there are a few basic things that are taken into consideration…..these include how to fold a cable, how to run cables, how to carry speakers, how to pack cables etc…..
The reason why I am referring to cables so much is because one attribute of good audio engineers is how they run their cables…..cables should away from human traffic for obvious reasons…
back to my tale….
Bad Sound engineer Vs Good Sound engineer
PUNCTUALITY if you cant keep time in professional circles, one can lose a client which could have been your gateway to your next SM 58.
HIDING OR IGNORING MISTAKESThis is a bad idea trust me, rather be bold enough and share it with someone else otherwise the entire gig or event will be messed up and it will be your fault,,,,….you are as good as your last job…
Know what it is that you want to do and how to get it, if its a crispier mix know what frequencies you need to know what range in the frequency spectrum you need to work on and how to adjust your Q (quality) appropriately.
