What tools are in your workbox?
« on: February 25, 2020, 09:11:02 pm »

Starting to do more corporate work, wondering if anyone cared to share what tools they use the most in the corporate side of audio?

All i do is corporate audio and i nearly always fly.  So i pack as light as possible.  Here's thing i value enough to bring.

My own Comms headset with Adapters for RTS or Clearcom
Headphones
RF Analyzer
QBox
Dongles/adapters for everything!  I bring a ridiculous number of these an still often don't have what is needed.
2-3 Spare drop switches [5 to 8 port].
Lots of short CAT5 cable.  I've had good success with Monoprice cables which are VERY thin and lightweight.
USB hub or two
2 StreamDecks for Qlab triggering and other things
At least 2 computers.  I have an asortment of MB Pros, Airs, and Mac minis and i bring whatever the gig requires
Laptop stand
At least 2 iPads
A few XLR turns and IL19s and such.
A small screwdriver with bits built in to the handle
Leathermen
Spare chargers for Iphone, etc.
Laser measure thingy

That's mostly it.  I don't bring a cable tester.  I don't have the luxury of testing every cable before it's deployed, and if i find it's bad after it's deployed i don't need the cable tester to tell me that either.  I also don't bring an audio interface as i am ALWAYS using Dante and i use DVS for everything.  Otherwise i use whatever PCDI things that the gear provider has on the show.

i do about 60 percent A1, 20 Percent A2 and 20 percent RF/Comms tech currently.  Although the first and third seem to be crowding out the second of late.

My latest addition that is great for those long corporate days, a pair of Black Crocs..

Also I just got a couple new pairs of gloves.. Gig gear makes some really nice gloves if you are looking.. I was not really a glove guy but once you are tired of your hands taking a beating, gloves are valuable.

Your body is your most valuable tool.. Take care of it.

Along those lines a can of Anti-Monkey butt powder is a must, some deodorant and a package of personal wipes.

And dental floss.  Previous venue I was at had a mirror with a package of floss beside it - so many people, including myself, kicked ourselves for how small yet practical it was.
