In this episode of Sound Design Live I talk with the creator of the Sound Bullet, David Scorteccia. We discuss building a habit of logical troubleshooting, how caring less can get you more gigs, and all of the Sound Bullet features.
- What are some of the biggest mistakes you see people making who are new to troubleshooting signal flow?
- Walk us through some of the features of the Sound Bullet and with each one, let’s talk about how it’s used in the field and maybe any personal stories you might have related to that feature.
- Tell us about the biggest or maybe most painful mistake you’ve made on the job and how you recovered.
- What’s in your work bag?
Take a deep breath and analyze it piece by piece.David Scorteccia

- A lot of it is about body communication, because if you really want to have friends and attract more work, the tension you feel will express itself on your face.
- Take a deep breath and analyze it piece by piece.
- I can get into the habit of analyzing things in a thorough way so that the next time things happen in a rush I’ll be able to troubleshoot it faster.
- There’s nothing better than knowing that my little creature is being used.
- If I have 5 hours of setup time I would check every single thing that I see move or be still.
Sound design live is very encouraging and I learn so much from the professionals who are interviewed here. Thank you Nathan!
