Live Sound | FOH Engineer

Yoav Naveh on SoundBetter

Based in Germany, I'm a professional FOH sound engineer with 15 years of experience. From small bars to stadiums I can manage all your sound needs including sound design, live sound mixing, technical riders, and technical touring arrangments. One-time gig, multiple concerts or a full tour - I do it all.

If you are looking for your live sound guy, don't look any further, you've found me! My passion is live sound, I'm a freelance sound engineer serving musicians, bands, and live sound companies.

I love my job and I can't imagine doing anything else in my life. I was born and raised in Israel and I'm in the sound business since I was 14 years old. I'm always excited to know new artists and bands and more important for me is to have a deep connection with whom I'm working with.

I have much experience with the following consoles: Avid (Digidesign), Yamaha, Midas, DiGiCo and Soundcraft.

In my experience, I am also a technical production manager, I can take all your technical requests and make them happen. I will get rental price quotes and close a deal, supervise on setup and tear down, coordinate with venues and take care of your backline needs.
