Sound reinforcement for live events is our core focus. From system technician or patch engineer through to monitor mix engineer and front-of-house. We can provide sound engineers for any and all of these roles.
Over the years we have gained experience in all aspects of sound engineering. We have toured with artists across the UK and supplied in-house engineers for venues and festival stages for over a decade.
Our knowledge and experience of pro audio equipment covers most industry standard products including analogue and digital mixing consoles, wireless microphones and in-ear-monitor systems, stage monitors, PA systems, recording equipment, DJ kit, Backline and much more.
FRONT-OF-HOUSE MIX ENGINEER: The FOH engineer will mix the sound for the audience to hear. It’s common for a touring band to travel with their own personal FOH engineer who will mix the sound for them and no others. This approach has two major benefits for the artists; first and foremost the engineer will be familiar with the sound the artist wishes to create. This helps to provide the audiences with a consistent sound night after night. Another major benefit is the touring engineer doesn’t tire his ears mixing multiple bands and will have a fresh set of ears for mixing the sound of the artist who employs him.
MONITOR MIX ENGINEER: This engineer looks after multiple mixes. Typically one for each musician or performer on the stage for live music. Mixing monitors requires a different approach to mixing FOH. It’s also common for artists to travel with a monitor engineer.
PATCH ENGINEER: A good patch engineer is vital to the smooth running of a festival stage. The patch engineer will communicate between the artists, stage manager and audio production team and plan the changeovers between acts. With an experienced patch engineer, it’s possible for fifteen minute changeovers between live bands on a festival stage.
