This cartoon, which first appeared in Live Sound International at least 15 years ago, is always good for a laugh, but it also brings up a good point. One of the difficulties we regularly face as live audio practitioners is working with a variety of parties in determining what’s best for a gig in terms of system size, scale, and complexity.

My approach is to first make there’s a solid foundation—basics such as enough console channels and processing, suitable loudspeaker size and quantity, appropriate stage monitoring, and so on. In other words, I’m not going even going to talk about miking up an entire choir with wireless lavs until the house system is at least adequate to deliver coverage to the entire space.
