hi there, at our theatre, a 4000 seat union roadhouse, we often get clients who are inclined to hop on to the com. besides the fact that they can't call a show worth a crap, as the house sound engineer some of thier clear com practices are doubly annoying as the chatter, leaving mics on while setting down/picking up headsets, etc. are a real distraction. i haven't been able to find a good simple one page guide that could be posted for those clients bound and determined to hop on com. just getting them to cut the chatter, say things like "sound, cd track 17, GO!" would be a dream instead of what i get in my ear. i am pretty much probably stuck typing it out myself, but is there some clearcom usage and manners guide anywhere? i asked clearcom, and while they agreed it was a good idea to have something like that as a download on their site, they don't have anything like that. i learned about calling shows properly on the job long ago and haven't ever seen any training materials on it. for my purposes, it would have to be a simple one page sheet type thing posted for our guests. ps: i'm tempted to turn some of our belt packs into ptt only packs as these folks are also bad offenders of leaving the mic keyed on and then the clear com noise level gets unbearable with lots of extraneous noise and conversation getting on in. that's no good. i suppose i'm a clear com nazi in that regard, i just would greatly prefer things were done right. a properly called show without the chit chat is a beautiful thing. unfortunately, we get quite a few amateur things in here as well and that's when com gets ugly. if anyone knows of com use guides i'd love to either print that out, or at least use that as a basis for anything i'd type up.
