Dick, Engineer, Greg discussed on Bangarang Radio
All the better acts for the most part have the budget to have their own sound engineer. So you're basically just babysitting the the sound equipment and helping that person kind of do their GIG and. So it's a lot more. Exciting fun and satisfying being a touring sound engineer were I. Know The act really well and I can dial things in really well, and people are always impressed like the here is like Oh. This sounds good as a record or may be better than the record sometimes because I can control the volume and impact and you know to take that and then go to working like A. Or even like a theater or something where you're spending hours and hours waiting for other people to do stuff without the reward of getting to to mix the show is. It's just I.

It it would take someone else sometimes to pointed out to me I remember one time. I was writing a song and my older brother had come into the room and he was listening to me right does song and he's like you know that's ghost of you and me by less than Jake right and I'm like it is and he's like, yeah, he's like see and I'm like, oh no, it was like so they're the went that.
