Choosing the right sound gear and setup considerations for your gig
From intimate conferences to outdoor concerts, having the right audio gear is essential in creating an atmosphere that will delight and engage your clients. But selecting one can be challenging – not just because of availability or cost but due to acoustical issues such as high ceilings or wood floors which could affect audio quality. To ensure a great listening experience for all attendees it’s important to consider these factors when making this vital decision. When you get in the room, it is a best practice to “EQ” the room to make sure the normal room ambient noise gets taken out of the mix. There are multiple ways to do this, including downloadable apps for your phone.
Best practices for testing your mixer set up: use headphones!
Especially in today’s world of hybrid meetings, when you achieve your desired mix, plug in some headphones and test the stereo experience for each channel on the mixer through your headphones. It is also best to test any limiters, gates, or amplifiers you may have in place to make sure your mixing is appropriate for the gig at hand. Also, check the audio on the recording gear to make sure it is correct. The job is not finished until the full recording is handed off!
Audio sources for unplanned events: phone, wireless, wired, and remote sources
In today’s world of everyone having a smart phone, it is important to keep in mind that there can be an audible called where someone wants to play a file they have on their phone during the live show. When these situations arise, it is best to have a spare pair of headphones and amplifiers ready to boost the phone signal for your mixer. Also even if it is not listed in the order, have a adapter ready for any incoming phone audio sources just in case.
Pop up interactions: have your battery packs ready!
What often happens as well is an unplanned person needs a wireless handheld microphone. In that case, it is best to have spare mics and lots of spare battery packs available. With that in mind, anything that can use a battery should be tested beforehand as well to make sure the battery levels are at an appropriate state.
Venue size considerations
When planning a sound system rental, it’s essential to consider the type and size of your venue. You may need significantly different audio equipment and mixers for a spacious outdoor concert than you would if hosting within a standard room with few surfaces on which sound mixing frequencies can reflect.
Venue configuration considerations
Furthermore, seating arrangements – ranging from theater-style setups to round tables – should also be taken into account in order to ensure clear acoustics during the gathering. If there is built in lighting check to see where they cables are laid out. Additionally, air walls of venues should also be considered when taping down cables to their appropriate destination as frequent closures can be detrimental to your rental.
Audience size considerations for your rental equipment
The size and location of the audience (as well the location of your microphones) also comes into play as large audiences tend to absorb audio. This especially occurs at concerts where clients are typically more tightly packed. For these situations having audio equipment of higher quality including power amplifiers is required to reach your entire audience.
Ambient noise, cables, power, and equipment locations
The more ambient noise in the venue will require a more powerful sound system to resonate over the ambient noise. Ambient buzzing noise may also come from your locations power supply. Please notify your on site power contact about that as it can disrupt the integrity of your entire audio solution.
Lighting elements to consider
The lighting solution at your location may also cause static sounds due to fluorescent lighting or close proximity to LED panels (and cables) as well. It is important to have tried and true support, service, and gear when you are trying to maintain a professional business environment and a successful experience for your company overall. A good relationship with your lighting technician or director is certainly what’s best for business in these scenarios.
Partner support for mics, mixing, and USB accessories
A mixer can make or break any project. In order for audio mixers to perform at the highest level you need to rent from a provider who has a commitment to your company and the wellbeing of your meeting. The entire service process of the appropriate recommendation of a mixer from sales during the first phone call, to the inventory removal from out shop for rent, and delivery of the gear to your gig needs to be handled by a partner who cares and is ready to assist. The rest of the process is in your hands, but you can always call our team for any mixing questions you may have.
Audio rentals and audio gear from our qualified team
Mixers have many specific accessories that need to undergo a quality check and pass our partner standards. We need to ensure none of the XLR pins are bent, the phantom power is in proper working order, as well as listening through the headphones and making sure the all of the knobs in the equalizers are working in addition to any other of the accessories commonly affiliated with mixers, like antennas and receivers. Ultimately, it takes commitment from all of our departments working in tandem, and the sales and delivery team need to be aligned on the full capabilities of the inventory.
Microphone Equipment rental and support for clients
Will you be renting a sound system for speaking, or will it be for live music? If it’s primarily for speaking, you can use a smaller audio setup as you most likely won’t need a lot of bass frequencies. Just be sure to utilize the right mics! Conversely, if you’re setting up for a band or DJ, you’ll want a larger system that can accommodate those bass frequencies. Rent our new QSC 18″ Powered Subwoofer to power up your clients and suit any large location; these will carry your sounds to a whole new level.
As you can see there are a lot of factors to take into account when selecting the perfect sound system and mics for your event. With all of that said though, don’t worry. We’re here to help. Our qualified technicians can recommend the perfect sound system rental solution that will provide the cleanest sound for your event.
