If recording and mixing musicians in a studio is like cosmetic surgery then live-sound in bars and small clubs is like battlefield surgery. It’s rarely a perfect environment for hitting your checklist of best practices. But the more tools and strategies you have available in your grab-bag or tool kit then the greater the likelihood that you can be successful, even with comromised results.

Please share with engineers, musicians and/or anyone that performs on a stage. Thank you for your support!
