TRIP012 – How To Put A Good Radio Imaging Demo Together
If you’re in Boston, New York, Philidelphia or Austin I’m coming your way!
I’m doing a bit of a tour about before hitting NAB this year to help host a panel (you should totally come check it out) called ‘Creating Unforgettable User Experiences‘
So, How To Put A Good Radio Imaging Demo Together
Or at least, how I think it should be done…
You want to demonstrate:
- The best production.
- Your ability to produce in different styles.
- Different techniques and skills.
You want to avoid:
- Making a demo too long (exceptions do apply).
- Making special introductions of yourself and the work people are about to hear (exceptions also apply).
- Make sure your auto-tune and vocoder effects are 100% in tune.
- Don’t leave gaps between pieces, make this montage slick! Have one piece run straight into the next seamlessly.
- Don’t rip off other people’s work to include in your demo, whether it is a slither of sound design, or an entire piece. The industry is small and everyone talks, word will get out.
- Treat your demo like a good story with ebb and flow. Have a mix of bold and upfront production alongside quieter more dynamic pieces can keep the intended listener’s attention much longer.

Totally makes sense for our world too in some ways doesn’t it?
