I am fully aware that I am not a genius. Sometimes I wish I was, but it will never happen. I will never be able to work out wireless frequency intermods in my head or have good enough ears to resolve audio delay times to 0.1 of a millisecond. Or understand how a one-degree angle change will affect the way my line array will behave. That’s why I try to spend time keeping up on software that will help me look good at what I do. Spend the time learning it as it will pay you back in full very, very quickly.
