Hi- my name's Scott. I'm a touring audio engineer and have been lucky enough to work with some amazing bands and really talented technicians, and it's been a great way to see the world and be involved in music at the same time.

Now that I've been touring for a while, I thought I'd put together the resource that I always wanted when I was starting out. It can be hard to find reliable or clear information about the technical stuff to know on stage, or about live sound and the touring industry in general.

So, I made a bunch of free videos that go through all kinds of important topics, and these can help you out whether you're on stage or behind the sound board. You can click above to get started or you can sign up below to get all kinds of free information about live music and touring production:

Scott is able to capture the nuances of what we do in the studio and scale it up arena size. As crucial as his skill, is the fact that he cares and listens to his clients.

I’ve been playing shows in clubs and festivals for almost thirty years now, and I learned a number of new things from Scott’s videos. They did a great job of breaking down some concepts that I had taken for granted and helped me grasp what’s happening with the sound on stage and in the room. These videos will help anyone further understand necessary live audio equipment and help communicate effectively with other musicians and engineers. Anyone interested in live music would benefit from watching these videos.
