my new ask notifications never appear on my dashboard anymore so apologies for taking forever to reply to anything :-( 

Hey! What is your opinion of Reason vs. Pro tools?

Hey! I’d probably go for Pro Tools, purely because it’s what I’m used to and I haven’t used Reason much :-) But I’d love to give it a proper go.

Wait, you want to work at JT Recording too!? That's been my dream job ever since I went through my Green Day phase haha. That's so crazy :D

haha totally, they have lovely studios!! If I ever go near there, i’m totally going to ask for a tour or something at least! ;) 

Any tips on working live sound gigs???

hmm… I’d just say to do your research on the gear you’ll be using so you’re familiar with it before you get there, don’t be afraid to talk to people and ask questions, especially regarding monitor mixes and the band’s preferences, it saves apologising later! and with less experienced musicians, remind them to not turn their amps up during a performance, it gets so difficult to get other instruments to pull through in smaller venues if they keep turing up all the time. be smiley and polite to people and know your stuff, and you’ll do great! get some business cards too, they’re a good investment :) hope that helped a bit!

hi! i'm a 16 yr old girl who started getting into recording and audio engineering when I was about 13, and really hope to do the tonmeister course at surrey after my a-levels! it's great to see more female music techies out in the world :) anyway, I was wondering what your opinion on the 'dying' recording industry is nowadays. Considering the fact that almost anyone can record an entire album in their bedroom, do you think it's even worth trying to get into the recording music field? thanks! x

hey! that’s awesome to hear :D it’s an interesting discussion, but the amount of people I’ve met who work successfully within the music industry has made me never see the recording sector as dying. It definitey is worth trying, but make sure you stay 100% focused and passionate, as it’s extremely competitive. And be a bit different - that’s another thing that could help you do get more work. I’ve always thought that just because a person isn’t famous doesn’t mean they’re not successful :) but it’s definitely worth working hard to get a job in the recording industry. Having said that, there is a significantly more money within the live sector of the music industry, so I’m told. No worries and good luck with your studies hun!x
