TradSound exists to share information, experiences, techniques about people using intelligence, acoustics and audio equipment to optimally reinforce voices and instruments at community trad music events, including dances, concerts and festivals.
Most of our subscribers are audio techs, though we also welcome interested musicians, singers, callers, organizers, dancers and listeners.
We discuss a wide variety of topics including:
- Basic electrical concepts
- People skills
- Venue acoustics
- Audio equipment from microphones to mixers to speakers and everything in between
- Working with a variety of voices and musical instruments and the sounds they produce
We are successful when subscribers have the tools they need to do good sound with a variety of inputs, in venues with good or challenging acoustics, with minimal to excellent audio equipment.
We want this forum to be simple and effective, all suggestions for improvement appreciated. The value of this list is in direct proportion to what you contribute!
