Hey everyone, I hate to say it but the effects of Covid-19 have finally reached my blog. Because my job usually involves lots of live mixing, meeting new people, and vastly different weeks I can easily generate lots of filler to come alongside my normal postings. Posts like “Meet an Engineer,” “Editorial,” and “From the Booth” just naturally make themselves but in this season two things have happened. First, the virus has thrust me into post production, which has been great but it means that each week for me usually looks about the same and wouldn’t be a fun watch or read. Secondly, the lock-down has all but eliminated my usual opportunities to go to conferences, interact with other professionals in my field, and have time to the kinds of innovation that I prefer to do every now and again.
So I need your help.
I created a survey that’s just three questions that each highlight a way you can help if you’d like to. The first question just lets me know where you as the reader are at and what you’d like to see. The second question is just an open call to tell me exactly what I should be writing about. I know all of you are likely more gifted than you think you think. I’ve been able to learn both from guys who have been doing audio for decades and from people who just started and asked just the right question. If you want to write and share your experiences, let me know, we’ll figure something out. I want this site to turn into a group of engineers whose goal is to help us as a group, get better. If you want to be a part of that, leave me your contact info and I’ll get back to you ASAP!
One last the thing, if you like what you’ve been reading, the best thing you can do is subscribe. My goal personally is to write new content each week but sometimes I just don’t come up with something worthy of your time. If you subscribe you’ll get an email shortly after any post has gone live so you won’t miss anything that happens here and you won’t have to keep checking to see if you new content is available. You can go to this link, fill out the form, and that’s it! If you have any questions just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below or on Facebook! Thanks for your help with the survey and being a part of the community here, see you next week!
