Choosing JSD means you choose to work with a professional who only settles for great sound, and will ensure that all of your requirements and expectations are met. We are sure that you will benefit from our live sound engineering services.


JSD live sound engineering services can range from simple system operation, to a combination of system setup, tuning, and subsequent operation. In a live scenario, this could look like the following:

Your sound engineer arrives at the venue and begins to prepare the sound system. After the sound system is prepared, they then begin to tune the sound system to the acoustic environment, as well as tune the stage monitoring system. Once this stage is complete, the stage can then be prepared based off of tech riders and documentation provided from the artist(s).

Your sound engineer will then be prepared to sound-check the sound system, along with the artist(s). Once the artist(s) and engineer are happy with the sound-check, your engineer will be prepared to operate the sound system throughout the live event. Once the event is complete, your engineer will assist with the pack down and removal of the sound system and equipment.



  • FoH means ‘Front of House’. This refers to the sound system responsible for projecting sound into the audience area – otherwise known as FoH.
  • Monitoring refers to the sound system installed for the purposes of allowing those on stage the ability to hear themselves and those around them. This sound system can be thought of as a singular sound system and subsequent mix for each artist or particular part of the stage.
  • Stage management refers to the role of setting up all audio components that are on stage. This can be arranging speakers, swapping microphones etc. This role also includes ‘patching’, which is ensuring all sound sources arrive at their intended destination through correct wiring (patching).

Josh is capable of operating a number of sound systems arranged from pieces of equipment from different manufacturers. Josh has had a large amount of experience operating:

  • D&B Audiotechnik speaker systems and processors,
  • RCF speaker systems and processors,
  • Midas M32 audio consoles and software,
  • Behringer X32 audio consoles and software,
  • Allen & Heath SQ series audio consoles and software.

Yes we do. We have a number of pieces of audio equipment ready for hire that you can check out on our equipment hire page.
