Tateraudio's vast experience in pro audio, acoustics and technology provides clubs, theatres, houses of worship, and other venues or touring productions with benefits not found in typical installed or portable sound design. Using the most advanced software, tools and methods in the industry, Tateraudio is able to design touring and fixed-installation systems that are unmatched in performance, clarity and usability:

Systems must perform under sometimes rigorous conditions, day in and day out. Tateraudio recognizes that an ounce of prevention, in the form of opting for reliability over bells and whistles or unproven technology, often saves thousands of dollars down the road.

Systems for tours, clubs, theaters and houses of worship must be easily reconfigured, often on a weekly or even daily basis to accommodate changing artists, shows and ceremonies. Bringing innovative, tour-level preparedness for these changes is key to Tateraudio's success in system design.

Tateraudio recognizes that finances are a major concern, especially in smaller venues. Leveraging our unique experience, knowledge and relationships, Tateraudio is able to bring unmatched "bang for the buck" to these venues.


In addition to our world-class professional design and engineering services, Tateraudio offers facilities for gear storage, prep and accommodations. Located in Detroit's historic, yet hidden, Brightmoor neighborhood,
