Analog or digital and why?
Live - Digital all the way. Processing is much faster, much more accurate, and easier than using an analog board.
I personally like the sound of an analog console in the studio.
What do you like most about your job?
At the end of the night, after a job well done. The feeling of making someone's dreams come true on stage is a feeling we can't seem to find anywhere else.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
If you are looking for exceptional live sound for a small to medium venue, we are your guys. Anything bigger and we might point you in another direction... Because we can't handle it and we want whats best for you!

We have been mixing and providing live audio for College A Capella for 3 years, but also have been mixing rock, blues and cover bands for more than 10.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
We would be overjoyed to work with a full scale A Capella Production like the ICCA's or NBC's the SingOff
Can you share one music production tip?
We as the audio engineers can only work with what we are given. Provide the best, most accurate mix possible for your clients, because that's all they are asking you to do.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Mostly A Capella, but also Rock, Funk and Blues
What's your strongest skill?
Providing an exceptional live audio experience for an unbeatable price.
What's your typical work process?
Set up starts about 3 or 4 hours before the event, leaving some time to test the system for any kinks that need to be worked out before the show. Next comes the soundcheck, which we take very seriously. This is where most of the work of making you sound the best we can happens. After this we run the show. Strike takes about an hour to an hour and a half.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Most work is simply showing up and providing high quality live sound to clients with venues ranging from small (audience less than 500) to medium (less than 1,000) audiences.
