New to this realm.

Greetings, all.

I finally found this forum while investigating software to help me study and evaluate acoustics. I'd graduated (plenty long ago) with a degree in engineering acoustics, but got derailed from that avenue for a while. Now I'm starting my own LLC with an eye (ear) toward helping small-medium sized theatres, performance spaces, and production companies make the best of the audio gear they have. This will eventually include consulting on room acoustics, system tuning, radio frequency coordination, in addition to occasionally renting out myself and my gear for the occasional rock band's sound reinforcement - just for fun.

While my focus will be in the realm of theatre (anything from drama, dance, music, etc), I think there's still much to learn from related fields, such as the ever-expanding home-theatre realm. (Yeah, I spell my 'theatre' with an '-re'. That's how I roll. To me '-er' implies a cinema.) [I realize some folks are proud of 5.1 and 7.1 systems at home, but I gotta admit: there's a lot of fun working in a theatre with at least a dozen channels of amplification - not including the stuff on-stage.]

In any case - I'm here to learn how folks are making their own spaces and gear work best for them and in turn occasionally offer some of what I know (book-learnin' and empirical tales).

Thanks for this resource, which I hope to visit not-too-rarely. (Hey, I'm starting a business; I'll have to sleep at some point.)

[T]o talk well and eloquently is a very great art, but that an equally great one is to know the right moment to stop.
