The Singer’s Perfect Sound Engineer?

This week we’re exploring the relationship between you & your sound engineer.

As artists we are often at the mercy of our sound engineer. Like it or not, they are ultimately responsible for how we hear ourselves on stage and how we are perceived by our audience. So, establishing a clear dialogue with the engineer (specific requirements, EQ’s etc), is crucial to the success of our performance. In last week’s Q & A many of you pointed out that a good sound-person is your top priority in choosing a live venue. This week we’d like to hear what you think makes a great sound engineer.

So the question is: What attributes do you look for in a great sound engineer?
