LIVE AUDIO: THE ART OF MIXING A SHOW
Reading for me is about gaining knowledge whether it’s factual or fictional. It’s very hard to gain anything from reading especially if it’s boring, and text books can be pretty boring.
This is not a text book, more of a rough guide to live sound. I wanted to write something that can be easily read, as if someone were talking to you. This is for all those people who don’t like to read, those who want to, but haven’t the stamina to finish, and those who have little interest in live sound but want to learn something.
