Sound mixing in cafe

Post by nospoons » Fri Jul 13, 2007 1:33 pm

Chris showed Me, Andrew and Nick around the mxer and PA in the cafe so including Pete and Chris that at least 5 people who know their way around the set up now.

Were wondering what people thought about introducing some sort of procedure for bands who want a hand with sound getting one of us to help out. I think there might be a section in the gig book to indicate that bands want a hand but im not sure what happens after that. One suggestions was that people happy to help set up the sound just look through the book and contact bands who want help. Another suggestion was to have contact details in the book and have bands contact people directly.

So were wondering if any one had any suggestions, with the festival coming itll be good to get the sound proper good.

I like the idea of bands contacting people directly...if the people are happy to be called up by random folks, maybe frequently?? Or maybe an email address that sound people check?

There is also a sound engineer forum on here with some contact details of folk who are also interested in helping with this stuff. It would awesome to get this system up and running! Ryan also has some details for students from a sound engineer program at a college? It was talked about on the weekend away.
