A2 Audio Engineer

Los Angeles, CA

We are in the process of opening up a new stage in Los Angeles and are looking for local crew workers to call upon when the need arises. These gigs have the potential to fall on nights and weekends. Live Bash operates in a fast-paced, live-broadcast environment so the ability to think on your feet is a must. 

We are looking for A2 Audio Engineers to expand our audio department on larger productions. The A2 Engineer will build detailed mixes for our performers, and, on occasion, a small in-person audience. The A2 should therefore have a solid understanding of commonly used:

  • audio sources (instruments, vocals, processors), 
  • capture devices (dynamic mics, condenser mics, DI boxes) 
  • processing tools (EQ, compression, gating, reverb, delay)
  • playback devices (amplifiers, speakers, headphones)
  • signal routing methods (aux sends, digital patching)

Responsibilities include:

  • Ability to quickly patch audio and power cables, leaving a clean and aesthetically pleasing stage footprint.
  • Having a basic understanding of commonly used audio sources (microphones, direct inputs) and connector types (XLR, ¼”, ⅛”, RCA, Speakon, CAT) 
  • Having a basic understanding of commonly used audio processing tools [EQ, compression, reverb, delay]
  • Digital console (Allen & Heath SQ series) operation. Remote mixing via iOS MixPad App (iPad provided.)
  • Communicating effectively with the Broadcast Audio Engineer and Production Manager during rehearsals and live broadcast.
  • Creating monitor mixes for performers, adjusting them as requested.
  • Post-show, striking the stage according to LiveBash protocols

Optimal candidates for the A2 engineer position: 

  • recent audio training program graduates
  • applicants with experience in other realms of audio (studio recording, location sound) interested in gaining live sound / broadcast experience.

This position will be contracted on a freelance basis, at a rate of $30/hr
