Rehearsals are done, final edits have been made, levels and fades and automated cues have been tweaked, tried, tweaked, re-tried, and finalized. Tonight is opening night.
The photo is the view from my "office" during the show.
I'm not necessarily 100% done, though. There's always the possibility that the directors will decide that something that worked during rehearsal needs further tweaking with an audience in the house. However, it's usually a simple task involving a couple of mouse clicks, so no big deal.
Final tally is four channels of audio, two to FOH (Front of House, or the main speakers) and two go to auxiliary channels for positional effects.
Relaxing now and preparing. On with the show!
