Gonna drop some answers up in here:
What's a Freelance Engineer?
Freelance engineers are unaffiliated (to us) audio engineers who rent our space and gear to use. Lots of engineers do not have a dedicated recording space so they use ours.
Am I a Freelance Engineer?
I'm gonna go with "if you don't know then you aren't one" to start but also....we consider anyone who is capable of running a studio session (pro-tools, patchbay, SSL) to be a freelance recording engineer. Obviously there are all types of skill levels to this position but if you are able to record audio, I think the shoe fits for now. We usually have a house engineer around to get you rolling.
Protools? Yes, Native V12.
Mac or PC: We are PC, sorry?
We do however have the Orion Antelope 32 AD/DA interface so bringing in a laptop/tower and integrating it to our system with ONE usb 3 cable is essentially plug and play. Our monitors are HDMI so
we got you sorted there.
Here are the links to the Orion Antelope files you will need: (download the driver and the launcher)
RATES (FEMALE freelance engineers can subtract 21% to account for the gender wage gap, sorry Chad! Yes, this is real, if you're in a position to effect any sort of change to a broken system you should!)
