A tech must take after his specialist’s lead and should continually look at the designer to check whether he needs something. The specialist of any show has a great deal at the forefront of his thoughts. There is a considerable measure he must be in charge of to accomplish really proficient outcomes. The designer must spotlight on a few things on the double: the craftsmen, the sound, and the gathering of people. One thing he ought not need to center around is standing out enough to be noticed. Whenever the architect experiences issues speaking with his tech, the tech is neglecting to carry out his activity. It is the duty of the tech to be mindful. The designer ought to never need to leave his seat after the specialists arrive. The sound tech must be mindful to the requirements of the craftsmen as well. At the point when the specialists are setting up, it is the sound tech’s obligation to give the accompanying:

Hand every craftsman his or her link and let them know, “This is for you,” or “You connect to here” for instance.

We are not to contact the craftsmen’s gear and they are not to contact our own (inside reason obviously.) We need to contact the drums to mic them, yet we considerately inquire as to whether that is alright and we try to inquire as to whether any of our mics are obstructing the drummer. Artists, clearly, will think that its important to contact our mouthpieces and that is alright as well. In any case, it is the sound tech’s business to make every single vital acclimation to receiver stands to get the ideal arrangement for each craftsman. No craftsman ought to ever need to change a mic stand. At whatever point that happens the sound tech isn’t doing his activity. The craftsman should just need to center around his instrument and his execution. Playing music is an enthusiastic affair and if a craftsman winds up annoyed on the grounds that he needs to alter his mic stand it will influence his feelings contrarily and that will debase his execution.

The sound tech must alter the screens to suit the craftsmen’s inclinations. Some of the time they need them nearer, or more remote away, or turned along these lines or that. It is basic to keep the screens out of the input zone, i.e. not pointing at mouthpieces that may instigate criticism.

At whatever point the designer leaves his seat to take care of those obligations, the sound tech is neglecting to carry out his activity. The specialist can’t center around setting up the board, and the screen blend, and the craftsmen, and the group of onlookers in the event that he needs to do the tech’s activity as well. The most critical activity of the sound tech is to be mindful. Being mindful means more than taking care of the requirements of the specialist and the craftsmen. Being mindful means going to the show and focusing consistently. Tune in for issues that may emerge and caution the specialist of any worries.

Take a gander at the framework. On the off chance that there is a speaker that is off hub, the sound tech should see something to that effect immediately and rectify it decisively. On the off chance that a craftsman is endeavoring to convey something, the sound tech ought to focus on that as well. It is the designer’s obligation to comprehend those correspondences that originate from the craftsmen amid a show, in any case, more critically, it is the sound tech’s business to be mindful to the requirements of the architect and the craftsman. That may mean helping the architect make sense of what the craftsman is attempting to convey. Moreover, if an amplifier stand slips, or gets moved out of position or thumped over, the sound tech must right that without a moment’s delay.

Sound techs dependably don dark. This is somewhat in light of the fact that they in some cases need to slip out in front of an audience amid an execution. Their dark attire reflects less light than some other shading and hence attracts less regard for them than if they were wearing fluorescent yellow for instance. Yet, it likewise tells the gathering of people that he isn’t an individual from the band. He is a sound tech and he is simply doing what sound techs do. He is being mindful to the requirements of the craftsman or the designer, and he is doing it well.
