<div>What is a Stage Plot?</div><div></div><div> A Stage Plot (or technical rider) is a document that details exactly what your band needs to make a show fantastic. It details the equipment and instruments of every band member, the input you will need from the venues that you're playing and how you want your stage to look and sound.</div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div>Stage Plot Pro Crack</div><div></div><div>Download File: </div><div></div><div></div><div>What Can You Include on a Tech Rider?</div><div></div><div> If you're a small band and you don't have much equipment or instruments with you, your Stage Plot will most likely mainly cover the gear that you're using onstage. As your band grows, your Tech Rider will start to include any FOH consoles that you bring with you, the lighting rigs you're touring with and any pyrotechnics that you have onstage. A Stage Plot is constantly updated as you continue touring and continue growing as a band.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Use our free online stage plan builder for musicians to create the exact stage plot for your gig. After that all you need to do is send the provided URL to the engineer of the venue. You can enter your instruments, monitors, DI boxes etc, scale and rotate and provide full details of what you want.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Use our stage plan builder for venues and managers to share plots with artists who either perform at your venue or who work with you. After you share the plot, the artist can then create their stage plot by adding musicians and equipment to the plan.</div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div>For any one who has a stage that artists perform on, using our pro services means you can create your stage (including stage dimensions and equipment like monitors, drum risers etc) and share it with artists who can add their equipment to your stage.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Our pro services let you add or remove artists access to the plots, time and time again, meaning you can share and unshare - and of course, you can always edit the plots as and when you need!. </div><div></div><div>Compare Pro Service Options</div><div></div><div></div><div>I do mine using Excel - it's way easier to create and manipulate shapes and Word-Art text in Excel than to move shapes around the text in Word (At least it is for me: I tried to build a plot in Word before, but it's a PITA to do a simple one).</div><div></div><div></div><div>I couldn't care less how cool it looks. I just want it to be functional, and for me it is. I have far better things to spend my time on that concerning myself with how visually appealing my stage plot is.</div><div></div><div></div><div>My experience working production at venues from 200-2k capacity, and for a sound/backline company that provided PA for up to 10k crowds, is that a clean & simple block shape plot with simple text is what's standard AND what's preferred (and most functional).</div><div></div><div></div><div>Granted I rarely need a stage plot. We usually play the bar/club circuit where no stage plots are needed, and when we do do larger gigs (Earth Day festivals, Street dances ect....) the stuff at free stage plots looks a lot better and is easier to read than the hand drawn and scribbled stage plots on notebook paper that most bands hand in. I just don't see any point in spending any time worrying about how "cool" something like that is.</div><div></div><div></div><div>I don't have to provide stage plot information all that often since we usually use our own PA. However, when I am asked to provide it - I give 'em two documents. One is a simple diagram I put together using Powerpoint - the other is a input list that I created in Excell.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Note that the "Connection Location" information included on the Input List document refers to where the connection is made when I'm using my PA (which uses two small 6 channel drop boxes - one placed at the front of the stage for "front line" connections and one place at the rear of the stage for "back line" connections.)</div><div></div><div></div><div>I have to do stage plots for a couple of my bands. I did it before with crude drawings but now I see there are apps that have icons for instruments, etc. Some of them are free but want you to pay for upgrade, some are more costly. I've read reviews and there's lots of criticisms of most programs. Do you use a program for designing stage plots? DOo you like it? I don't mind paying a small fee but I don't want to pay a large one unless I've tried it out and liked it. I'm on a Mac if that makes a difference. Thanks in advancee for any info</div><div></div><div></div><div>Thanks for suggestion of using Keynote (Powerpoint equivalent on Mac). I tried it out and it was a breeze. Never used Keynote before. Little bit of a learning curve to get the formatting to work. But generated a usable stage plot for my purposes. Now I'll do one for my main band. Thanks much for the idea.</div><div></div><div></div><div>An input list is essentially a list of inputs and the corresponding channels in the snake or console that they are patched into. The most basic contain the snake channel, input and possibly a microphone or DI preference. More advanced input lists can include sub snake channels, color coding, location of the input on stage, mic stand preference, and any other relevant info.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Stage plots are not often used in small productions where for example, you have someone speaking from the stage giving a lecture and using a single monitor or a theatrical production that only requires a few vocal microphones.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Like the input list, the stage plot can be as basic or detailed as needed. The most basic show the position of musicians and monitor mixes on stage. More advanced stage plots can also show things like drum riser dimensions, distances between musicians, AC power drops, and any other pertinent info.</div><div></div><div></div><div>If you are the sound engineer at a venue working with different acts all the time, you will likely draw up an input list and stage plot when the band arrives and you find out what you are dealing with.</div><div></div><div></div><div>The input list and stage plot are two important documents that should be part of every gig. Both serve as a map, the input list is a guide for patching the snake and console and the stage plot is a guide for patching the stage. They are also very helpful in troubleshooting.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Please advance your show no later than two to three weeks prior to its date. Contact the Red Room at Cafe 939 and submit your stage plot and input list. If you do not have a stage plot, please request a form from us. It is only to your advantage to do so and will take just a few minutes to create. We require this to produce the best show possible. An advance sheet will be sent to you.</div><div></div><div></div><div>This post on plot structure continues from the one on Writing a Novel: the First and Second Draft where one of the points to check at the 2nd draft stage was how your plot points sat relative to a plot structure template. A template makes sure that your plot points come at the right time to keep the reader interested. I use the 6 points of story structure by Michael Hauge and, using sticky notes for the events, I make changes in the order of events or the time given to some events so that the major changes, challenges and opportunities fall at the best place.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Ten percent of the way in, your hero must be presented with an opportunity which will create a new visible desire and will start the character on her journey. The desire created by the opportunity is not the specific goal that defines your story concept, but rather a desire to move into stage 2</div><div></div><div></div><div>Your stage plot should be as specific as possible. You don't necessarily need to include your water bottle on it, but the more details you can provide, the better. Does the drum set need to be stage right instead of behind the band? Does your keyboard player only set up facing a certain direction? Make sure your stage plot includes that. The locations of vocal mics, amplifiers, preferred monitor locations, and where you need outlets should all be clearly indicated and labeled.</div><div></div><div></div><div>The stage plot can also be a good place to have notes about some general monitor mixes, what certain members want in their mixes, or if they don't need certain elements in a mix at all. If the singer gets crippling stage fright because there's no reverb/delay in his or her monitor, within these notes would be the place to make that clear. For all you drummers out there, letting your sound tech know how many pieces are in your kit is also great info to have ahead of time to plan accordingly and can save headaches the day of the show. It's also helpful to know if your amp has a direct out or if you need a DI box placed somewhere.</div><div></div><div></div><div>The band name and contact info for this stage plot have been removed (which you should always include, especially the name and contact info of the most tech-savvy band member), but this is a great example of a clean and clear stage plot. The preferred location of DIs, power, monitors, amplifiers, band members, and vocal mics is obvious, and there's not too much extraneous information on the plot itself. Below, as mentioned earlier, are some general monitor mix notes so that your tech can establish a baseline mix to speed up your soundcheck, and you can spend more time dialing in a great sound rather than simply getting your levels balanced.</div><div></div><div></div><div>As far as making a stage plot goes, it doesn't need to be incredibly artistic. In fact, in most cases, the simpler the better. If your stage plot involves a full-color key and is best viewed on a 14"x18" piece of paper, you've probably gone too far. Basic knowledge in most word processing programs can yield you a very functional stage plot. Something as simple and plain as this works great:</div><div></div><div></div><div>Also, keep in mind that your sound tech knows the venue best. If it's a 100-person venue and the sound tech tells you that you don't need the 12 channels of drum mics specified on your input list and suggests going with a four or five microphone setup, it's almost always best to defer to his or her judgment. The same goes for outboard gear and specific mic requests. Unless you travel with your own microphones or rack of outboard processing and the appropriate cables, you may not always be able to have your designated preferences. If you do travel with these things, you should definitely include that on your stage plot or input list.</div><div></div><div></div><div>Production crews need a stage plot to help set an artist up for a successful live show. Check out this great stage plot design website for you to communicate the details of your perfect stage setup to the Production Team.</div><div></div><div> dd2b598166</div>
