On Perfect Sound

Sound engineering is quite simple, really. It’s all about getting the volume levels right, and once that’s sorted, you get paid to sit back and relax – which makes it the perfect job for me. A backing vocalist once told me “Someone from the audience said the backing vocals sounded perfect last week, so whatever you did then, do it again this week.” I told her it was no problem. What I didn’t tell her was that her microphone had been going through to the monitors, so she could hear it clearly on the stage, but it was muted from the main speakers, so the audience could only hear the other two backing vocalists. I’ve finally realized why the monitors are so important.
