Know Your Band

Being an audio engineer is so much more than just being the person behind the console. It starts with building relationships. The bond between audio engineers and band members is crucial. Before you push faders, or dial in your EQ, build a personal connection with each band member. Transcend the technical aspects of mixing to become a supportive and integral part of Sunday morning.

Key Points:
  • Labeling in-ear packs with band members' names shows that you care about details and are invested in their performance.
  • It is important to communicate well with band members. Using their actual names, not generic labels like "drummer", can help build a personal connection.
  • The monitor engineer's relationship with the band is almost like a marriage. This shows the need for close connection and teamwork for successful collaboration.
  • Simple actions build trust and rapport.
