Your Guide To Recording Music On A Budget

Big ideas, but without the budget to match? Donít let this put you off getting started in the music industry or taking on a project thatís a little out of your current comfort zone. As the saying goes, you have to start somewhere! So, weíve put together five handy hints, inspired by conversations with our music industry customers, to help you receive great results even whilst on a budget. 1) Donít limit your options When youíre recording, you need to have the flexibility to play as your music requires in order to capture a sound youíll be happy with. This doesnít mean cramping into a cheap, convenient space that offers dull acoustics, restricts the volume of play, or denies musicians the freedom they need to give their best performance. Post-recording editing can improve balance or enhance clarity, but it definitely canít make up for a poorly positioned mic or an amp set to an inappropriate level. Therefore itís always worth looking into rental rehearsal and recording spaces, often in kitted-out industrial units that grant greater flexibility, and at a much lower cost than a traditional studio if youíre on a budget or just starting out. 2) Spend your money carefully Depending on what it is you are looking to record, the kind of equipment you are going to be using will vary greatly from person to person. Microphones, direct inputs and cables will all have an effect on the final sound of your mix, with cheaper unfortunately often meaning that sound quality will suffer. However, with some industry knowledge and that bit of extra time sourcing options, you can get some great value kit that performs on a par with budget-busting options. Make sure to check online for professional guides and always keep an eye on second hand and used markets to buy premium equipment at a cut-rate price. Whilst recording music can be expensive, patience can lead to big drops in price. 3) Hardware makes a big difference Donít just buy the brand name you recognise or take up the first great deal youíre offered. Make sure that youíre as certain as you can be (we understand creative direction can change during the writing and recording process!) of what sound youíre wanting to create before you make any equipment investments. Take time to learn about the techniques behind the sound you what to achieve for a better outcome that will be lower-cost in the long run. 4) Take help where you can. We understand that this is a guide for those who are looking for initial advice, but sometimes avoiding professional fees can come at an unwelcome price. The discerning listener will always be able to tell an amateur from a pro, so any advice that you can get about recording, mixing and all the other facets of studio production is going to help you produce a better record and hopefully make more money from your efforts. 5. Once youíve made an investment, protect it. Flightcase Warehouse helps you to continue creating your own music and takes away worries such as costly damage in storage or transit. We stock thousands of off the shelf protective solutions for musicians and budding sound engineers alike and our Pro Flightcase team can create totally bespoke solutions for any need you may have.

The Art of Showmanship and What We Can Learn From Musical Theatre

Back in July Flightcase Warehouse looked at how touring bands utilise the modern skills of events professionals and the capabilities of contemporary technology to deliver standout experiences for their audiences. However, delivering awe-inspiring spectacles that cement themselves in memory isn’t a new thing. Some of the greatest performances in history came way before the onset of 21st century digital technology and have established a standard for the glittering, stimulating marvels we enjoy today.  
The best performance genre to illustrate our point is that of the constantly evolving “musical theatre”. Drawing inspiration from good old-fashioned spectacle (made an essential requirement all the way back in the 16th century by the world’s best-know dramatist, William Shakespeare) and the innovative use of the very latest tech and production techniques, when done right, even classic musical theatre shows seem as fresh and exciting as on their premiere night. Despite being around since before the millennium, the below 3 shows are still regulars on theatre programmes the world over thanks to their rare ability to reinvent their stories using innovative technology, modern techniques and contemporary creative direction.

1)    The Lion King
A family favourite ever since its inception in 1999, The Lion King has long relied upon its production team to deliver a stunning visual experience for global audiences. The musical has enjoyed many years gracing Broadway stages and boasts tremendous international success, and is well-known for its heavily stylised and unique array of costumes and puppets that engage with actors and iconic musical numbers. The production team behind the Lion King works tirelessly to ensure that the show remains visually stunning, with inventive costume design and puppetry still being a key draw today in 2017.

2)    The Phantom of the Opera
A staple of the musical theatre landscape, today’s Lloyd-Webber-penned retelling of an Italian classic not only has to ensure that it’s in-house orchestra and vocalists retain exceptional clarity (through hidden, wireless microphones in most productions), but that the various set pieces occur without a hitch. A long standing TPOTO tradition is that the chandelier hanging above the audience is dropped from the sky, reflecting action in the storyline. Obviously, as a large weight that needs to endure a controlled (yet rapid) descent there is a large amount of pulley, rigging and chain hoists involved in the drop. A very intricate yet spectacular set piece, TPOTO continues to stun modern audiences with its engineering marvel.

3)    Les Misérables
“Les Mis” as it’s fondly known, is one of the most famous ever musical theatre productions and the longest running on London’s West End. Variations of this novel-come-musical are mounted worldwide, with a need for intricate stage sets and robust sound design wherever staged. Large orchestral capacity is combined with an equally sophisticated mixing desk, with audio engineers working nearly non-stop (as they do on most musical production’s) to ensure that not a note is missed. Of course, a big part of the show is the swarming crowds that take the stage, filling complex sets and using props that flesh out the feel of the French Revolution at its height. Never more bombastic than it needs to be, the behind the scenes stage hands work hard to make sure that not only the stage is prepped and ready for the show, but that every cast member is outfitted perfectly.
Musical theatre is a great genre to cast your eye to for inspiration when working in events. Pros in this area often push the boundaries of creativity and capability when it comes to utilising modern and ground-breaking technology, or delivery next-level spectacle to huge crowds. And you can guarantee that they put their trust in protective equipment that will never let them down, even when under logistical pressure or working with demanding kit.

We have thousands of off the shelf flight cases ready for next day delivery and also offer bespoke manufacturing if you require a totally tailor-made solution.

Outdoor Events For Celebrating Autumn

Festival season is almost over – but that doesn’t mean that event professionals just stop work outdoors. Autumn and winter may lead to indoor venues taking precedent over their open air counterparts, but there is still a massive market for those who want to be outdoors, enjoying the seasonal atmosphere. Here’s a quick rundown of the events that are making great use of the outdoors and equipment, even when the weather is less than accommodating.
Halloween Themed Mazes and Shows:
Drawing inspiration from all of the insanely over-the-top Halloween-themed goings on in the United States, events such as the increasingly popular scare-maze are drawing more and more visitors within the UK. These spooky nights out happen in a varying number of sizes and themes, with councils investing in small and fun family activities, to gargantuan theme parks like Alton Towers constructing elaborate and terrifying mazes (adults only!)
Of course, mainly taking place in the dark, chilled evenings, it’s not hard to see why lighting, visual effects and sound technicians are so in demand for such events. Construction can begin as early as summer, with the very best professionals using their skills to attain an almost horror film-like level of Halloween mood.

Christmas Markets:
On the surface these festive outdoor fairs may not seem like the ideal place for event professionals to lend their hand – but as the popularity of these temporary crowd-drawers increases, so does their size – and attractions.
Second cities like Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool all offer (in addition to the standard market layout) a full, almost festival – like experience. Liverpool for example features an ‘Ice Festival’, complete with bar, stage and opening night parade. No longer just a market, these winter attractions are becoming a full live experience. And I’m sure we’re all familiar with the yuletide extravaganza that is Hyde Park’s “Winter Wonderland” in London.
Bonfire Night:
An absolute no brainer. Bonfire Night is a staple of the British calendar – but in recent years it has become an ample opportunity for pyrotechnic teams to demonstrate exactly what they can do, without limitation or direction imposed by a performing team.
Big cities often feature some of the most impressive displays, with pressure mounting yearly to top the previous performance – as well as outdo rival displays throughout the country. Guy Fawkes night is a great opportunity to check out what professional pyrotechnic teams are capable of (even in the adverse weather we are so used to seeing on the 5th of November)!

If you are planning on running one of these seasonal outdoor events, and want your kit to stay protected, be sure to visit www.flightcasewarehouse.co.uk. We stock a wide variety of off-the-shelf protective solutions, with our bespoke arm Pro Flightcase able to cater to any custom specification you may need.
