You will acquire the competencies to set up basic sound systems, run sound-checks, run concerts, communicate with clients and understand elements of theory relevant to these tasks. On completion, you will be able to safely operate sound systems in small to medium-size venues, working with a range of programme material. </p><p>Scenario You will be in charge of operating the live sound for the HNC function band on a number of performances, both in house and at other small to medium-sized venues. The role will involve working closely with the band and understanding personal and technical requirements. </p><p> TASKS EVIDENCE Task 1 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.1, 2.2 </p><p> The Sound Experiments: Get to know the studio and present an illustration that matches signal sources with potential destinations, understanding and evaluating the importance of gain staging, and suggest correct patching and routing techniques. Demonstrate how an understanding of sound theory is important for the correct placement of microphones. </p><p>Written guidebook with audio and illustrations </p><p>Task 2 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 </p><p> The Recording Process: You must demonstrate your knowledge of microphones, what they do and what context you should use each. When recording use a number of placement techniques, and document the success you have. Carry out interfacing of various sources in the studio and illustrate this. </p><p>Video, audio and photographic evidence. Observation. Written blog. </p><p>Task 3 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5 </p><p> The Mixing Process: You must present a professional sounding mix that adheres to industry standards.
