    Unistrut as scenic element framing

    Hey guys, I'm working on a production of Charlotte's Web and the design has a couple sets of giant tracking barn doors. (Not for lighting fixtures). I'm looking into the possibility of framing the doors with Unistrut and facing them with 3/8" Ply or 1/4" Luaun. The Doors are rather large...

    Aspiring LD or sound designe/FOH engineer w/ a disability

    Re: Aspiring LD or sound designer/FOH engineer w/ a disability Welcome! Lots of consoles now have Computer Based clients that can be used to program. You could use PC voice control paired to the hot-key commands for example with an ETC EOS/Ion/Element Client which would allow you to program...

    Theatrical Law - HELP!

    I don't know much about the regulations in the states, but CITT has a guideline for all those things - general good practice for theatre, and some law in Canada. If you cannot find any legal/regulatory material, it's a good place to start for standards...

    Sound f/x looking for music people associate with hell

    The band Sunn has a lot of good atmospheric music. Sin Nanna, Orthodox Caveman and Mocking Solemnity are worth checking out.

    Sound f/x Cue Playback Software

    I would like to apologize in advance for the sporadic nature of the post. I've been using Ableton Live in combination with an external Firewire Interface.
