Welcome! I was giving your question some thought and I think maybe the keyword here is credibility, not promotion (yet). Breaking into this profession is very much, in my own experience and that of my close peers, a growth of trust-building and credibility in ones body of work over a long period of time. And it's something we never stop, primarily because ...

my best answer would be to begin to do work. Check out craigslist and mandys and look for the gigs that seem to match your inclination and skillset. Don't worry about money yet (many of the gigs that fit your profile won't pay much or anything at first), but do be careful to choose projects that you ENJOY and can do well on. Jumping into these types of ...

You can start by getting a network identity. Stuff like a cool name/brand, logo, professional website can only help. Once that's done you can start researching your market and emailing possible clients.

You will need some Dante termination adapters (ethernet to XLR) which you can (I ...

Depending on your latency requirements, there are a wide variety of network audio protocols that may suffice for this application. Essentially, both computers would have "virtual sounds cards" which pipe to and from the network. Specifically, you want layer 3/4 protocols that will operate with standard COTS networking equipment. Examples of these protocols ...

Doubt you could do this over a network, and it certainly wouldn't be easy, especially when the phone comes into play. However, using any basic hardware sound mixer, you could take the output from the three headphone jacks on your three devices, mix them to taste, and listen over your headphones. http://www.amazon.com/Mackie-802-VLZ3-8-Ch-Compact-...

Rene nailed it! But I'd like to add; I taught Location Sound at a post secondary level for 9 years and a very good place to meet up-and-comers is universities, colleges, and tech schools that teach film and video. These students are focused on the camera side and ALL of them quickly come to realize the importance of sound. For years I told my students to ...
