COMPUTERS

Are becoming ever more common both in studios & for live playback duties. Computers are far less likely to crash than they used to be & there are a multitude of different recording/editing packages & cueing software available. We will look at some of theses in more detail in a later chapter.

The screenshot above is from a prograame called "QLab." It is specialised audio, video & midi cueing software that is required for today's sophisticated, multimedia rich theatre productions. While there is quite a steep learning curve with software like this, the advantages of using a cueing system like this far outweigh any initial confusion.

We will devote a later chapter to audio editing software & cueing software. In the meantime you may wish to study some videos on the QLab website.
