Welcome to the Professional sound production WikiProject! If you would like to contribute to this project, please take a look at the Open tasks to see specific needs. Don't forget to add your name to the members list!

  • To clearly organize the articles within the 3 sub-topics of professional sound production (See Scope).
  • To improve the quality of articles related with professional sound production

Hopefully this project will improve the organization or these articles to the point of creating navigation templates, or even a series, with a few WP:FACs and WP:FARs to top it off.


This project covers all articles which cover the technology, equipment or professions relating to

  1. Recorded Media (audio & film)
  2. Sound Reinforcement (events such as concerts & theatre) and
  3. Broadcast (live television & radio).

This project is not as broad as the Entertainment Technology WikiProject. For example, this project is not concerned with Stage Lighting and DJ-related articles. Perhaps this project can be seen as a child of the Entertainment Technology WikiProject.

What can I do?[edit]

The Basic[edit]

The Standard[edit]

The Awesome[edit]

  • Come up and implement a better way of keeping track of tasks than the list of specific needs above. That is just a temporary means to list stuff that needs to get done. If you have ideas for a better way of listing tasks and organizing articles within this projects scope, please type them up on the discussion page or even implement it yourself!
  • Create and contribute to the policy page by engaging in discussions on its talk page.
  • Create a user box template for members of the project to display on their user page.


  • I created an advanced article talk template from Template:WikiProject Filmmaking and copied over their assessment scheme for our use. Please see the new assessment "department" page and assessment category structure that I adapted for our use from the Filmmaking project. Things should be ready to go, so please start assessing articles at your leisure. :) -Fadookie Talk 03:49, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
  • An Invite user template has been created, so you can easily leave a message on the talk pages of editors who are actively editing articles within our scope.

Scope Ambiguity[edit]

When it comes to phenomena within Professional sound production, it has been hard to decide whether or not the article is within this project's scope, especially when it seems like the Physics WikiProject already has it covered. Since some phenomena, though a topic within physics, are exclusive and specific within Professional sound production, it is important to include them in this project's scope. For example, the article on Sound need not be included, since most aspects of this generic topic are consistent throughout most fields. However, an article like Audio feedback which is technically under the scope of physics, is a phenomenon exclusive and very important to Professional sound production. This project's goal is to include every article pertinent, yet not cut out too much work for ourselves.That said, if you have any questions regarding scope ambiguity, please discuss it on the project discussion page.
